Hello there and Happy Fall! I can’t believe we’re in October–this year flew by so fast. I’m reminded of just how fast a month goes whenever I’m writing one of these. Yep, you guessed it…it’s time for another monthly recap!
Ok, I’m just gonna come right out and say it: September was my worst month of blogging so far. This might sound like a bad thing, but I’m choosing to look at it from a different perspective, and I’ll tell you why.
As I was looking over my numbers for September, my first instinct was to beat myself up for not making any of my goals (as overzealous as they may have been, in my opinion). I did that for about five seconds before realizing why it was a “bad” month. I was very busy last month and blogging just happened to be on the back burner a few times. This doesn’t mean that I care less about my blog. It just means that life can sometimes get in the way of even the best laid plans. And that’s ok. I need to remind myself that I’m doing this while working two jobs, so I’m not going to meet every goal every time.
I’ve decided to keep my goals from last month:
- Blog followers: 250
- Twitter followers: 450
- Instagram followers: 450
When I was making these goals last month, although they were large, they seemed semi-attainable. What I didn’t do and what kept me from meeting those goals, was follow up and promote my blog. I’m going to make a more conscious effort this month to do so, even if I spend just an hour a day on social media.
Well, there you have it–October’s blogging goals! I’m keeping it pretty simple this month. Thank you so much for reading my blog and for your continued support…it is very much appreciated! I have some great ideas for October’s posts so make sure you’re following my blog!
