Alright so my monthly goals didn’t go exactly as I had expected.
OK, I lied. They went EXACTLY how I expected them to. FAIL! To my own defense, this is the first time that I put my blogging goals out into the universe so I will cut myself some slack.
Get to 650 followers on Pinterest
Pinterest has been really good to me the past month, but my followers have been doing a ping-pong effect. I gain, then lose, then gain again until it levels out at the end of the day. At the end of the month, I wound up with 639 followers.
Blog 2x a week
The day after posting my August goals post I knew this was going to be a no in my book. I’m the type of writer that cannot be forced into writing. Producing good content takes me a long time. I can never finish a post in one sitting. I will begin writing then abandon the post.. come back..abandon it again..then finally call it complete. Needless to say, 1 post a week is more than enough for me.
Create a printable
I passed this goal with flying colors! In fact, I’ve created a total of three printables.
Be more active on my Facebook page
Although I am not posting every single day, I’ve made an effort to post at least once the majority of the week. Baby steps.
Get to 1000 views
I ended the month with only 890 views and my soul was slightly crushed. Recently, my post about budgeting went nuts on Pinterest and I am hoping to keep up the momentum!
