April blog traffic and May goals
Hey y’all, this month I will be going over my April blog traffic and May goals. I’m doing this because I am trying to hold myself accountable and I thought I could share with other bloggers. Plus, It’s so important to have goals otherwise you aimlessly walk through life. All throughout high school and college I had a planner, I wrote my assignments and my to-dos, and daily goals. And to be honest, if I don’t have daily, weekly, or monthly goals I pretty much fall apart. Have goals so you can have a target to shoot for.
So, before I get into my April blog traffic, I like to review the previous month and see if my goals were met. Below is a little snapshot of my total numbers in-relation- to social media followers in February:
March blog traffic:
Page views: 1,404
Pinterest collabs: 21
Email Subscribers: 5
April blog traffic:
Page views: 2,574
Email Subscribers: 6
Last month was a really good month, on the first you can see one of my posts had about 600 views in one day. I posted The 5 reasons family and friends may be your worst supporters, in a crafting group and it got a ton of views which was exciting. Towards the middle of the month I took a blogging break. I am still kind of taking a blogging break at the moment, but figured I better at least write a couple of blog posts.
What I did in April:
In April, I started trying to be more active in Facebook group niches, I also started trying to revamp all my old blog post photos. I went over and edited some of my blog posts as well.
I have been creating freebies in my spare time- none of which are up yet. But maybe this month (May).
I took quite a long blogging break in April, I started to feel overwhelmed and stressed with all the blogging, advertising, networking. So I decided I would take a break for however long I need to.
I began focusing on my Etsy shop again. I started rebranding my entire shop in February because I was going in a new direction. So, I’ve been sewing up new products. Mainly zipper pouches and wristlets.
To-do’s for May
Considering this blog post should have been written at least a week ago, I’m not too sure. But, I know one thing is for sure- I plan to take it easy this month and add new blog posts when I feel like it.
