How is it November already?! This year went so incredibly fast and now the holiday season is officially among us! Ahhh!! Anyway, it’s time for a monthly blog recap. I’ve decided that this is going to be my last one for a while and I’ll tell you why a little bit later. But first, let’s recap!
For October, I decided to keep my goals from September since I didn’t make any of them. I had mentioned that, although large, my goals were semi-attainable. However, due to my work schedule and going on vacation, I didn’t promote my blog much and that hurt my numbers for September. So, how did I do in October?
Blog followers: 201 (goal was 250)
Twitter followers: 512 (goal was 450)
Instagram followers: 308 (goal was 450)
As you can see, I crushed my Twitter goal but didn’t make my blog or Instagram goals. I mentioned in September’s recap that, although I love my blog and want it to do well, I can’t be so hard on myself every time I fail to achieve a goal I’ve set. I am and always will be my harshest critic. Sometimes I need to remind myself that I work two jobs (one full time and one part time) and I can’t expect great numbers all the time…it’s just not realistic.
That being said, this is going to be my last recap for awhile. I need to blog without the pressure I’m putting on myself; that was what I intended when I started my blog. I’m not saying I’ll never do another one of these recaps again. My plan is to maybe do a recap every 3-4 months. This way I can still check my progress but do it less frequently and keep you guys clued in on my blogging journey. I will still try to be as active as possible on social media so be sure to follow me! (Links are below)
As always, thank you for reading my blog! I have some fun posts planned for this month so make sure you follow my blog so you never miss out on a post.
