I’ve gotten through my 5th month blogging! I also have some exciting news!
Let’s talk about the blog first, every month has been great so far in terms of traffic. Views and visitor-ship keeps going up and up! This month was actually my highest likes ever in a month +40!
I do have some really great news though! I’M PREGNANT! I found out 2 months ago. And this pregnancy has been really kicking my ASS, it’s been hard for me to post and I know I committed to 2X a week but for Sept I don’t think I did too bad. I only missed 1 post in the past month. I’m committed to making this blog work so please bear with me if I miss a post.
Speaking of posts, September I did a poll on what types of posts are most popular with you readers. Was it my motivational posts, career posts, lifestyle posts, relationship posts, or book reviews? Surprisingly, lifestyle posts won, in second place was career posts, and last was motivational posts. I’m not really sure what kind off lifestyle posts people are looking for, I’m still working out the types of stuff people are interested in.
If you haven’t had a chance to vote, please do so below. I literally only had 6 votes from last week so not sure how reliable the information is, so please vote.
This upcoming month I plan on making some changes including adding a page that has the table of contents for the EVERY SINGLE POST I’ve done so far. And that’s about 60 posts!
I did play around with the website layout a little bit. I took away the Services tab because I thought I was going to include my services in posts, but then I realized I’d rather have the tab for those really interested instead of spamming everyone. I also took away the popup subscription form for a while. I wasn’t happy with the way that one looked. I was able to syndicate with Mailchimp and create a nicer, more efficient one that is easy to close if you choose not to join.
This month I’ve increased to 50 new WordPress followers, 332 Medium followers, 10 email subscribers, 41 likes on my Facebook Page, and 17 Quora Followers. I haven’t really been promoting outside of Facebook and a little bit on Medium, keeping up with my posts have been more of a priority.
So where am I?
Well, I ended the month with 1390 views which was 70+ more views than last month. I was trying to figure out where I gained views. To be honest, I had 35+ search engine searches leading to my page, which was a nice bump from last month. I think my investment into Pinterest and Facebook has really helped, that I’ve been promoting myself very heavily there.
But the fact is that the quality and loyalty of my readership already says that this blog is on the right track, as long as you guys keep reading and sharing my work, there’s opportunity for me to take this full time and make this better.
So I’m asking you, all you readers if you enjoy this blog, please become a Patron through Patreon. You can donate as little as $1. But it would mean so much for me and help me support this blog and keep it going!
