July Income and Traffic Report

And just like that it’s August! July was such a productive month. I also happened to turn 30 years old and I’m already feeling wiser haha. On top of my birthday trip, bachelorette parties and  school, I have managed to stay on top of blog. Yay me! 

I crushed some goals and kept my head above water. I feel really good about my growth this month. My pageviews skyrocketed! I went from 5,805 page views to 13,354 page views. I really can’t beleive it! I’ve been focusing on consistency, quality, and engagement with my post and it looks like that’s working great.

SOCIAL MEDIA REFERRALS

SOCIAL MEDIA WORKS

This isn’t new. Social media is the source of most of my referrals to my site. Having pinnable images, quality content, and being engaged with your followers is crucial. Pinterest has done well for me and being part of group boards also has given me more engagement. Instagram is so hard to get people to your site but I’m happy with almost hitting 100 sessions with it. Twitter…well I obviously need to work on that. I didn’t even know how twitter worked until a couple months into blogging but I’m getting the hang of it slowly. .   

July Goals (revisited)

  1. 1-2 blog posts per week (Total of 7 blog post)
  2. Focus on growing Twitter engagement. (Posted more to twitter and engaged more with the community throught twitter parties and reply to other tweets) 
  3. Create an opt in freebie for email list. (FAIL) 
  4. Catch up with school work. (All caught up and only 4 more modules to go before I’m a Certified Holistic Health Coach. Yay!)
  5. Workout 5 times a week. (Somewhat of a success. I managed 4 times per week) 

August Goals 

  1. 2 blog posts per week.
  2. Makeover old posts.
  3. Update pins and images.
  4. Finish strong with school. 
  5. Stick with my Nike Training Club program.

    Good for you! I’m due with baby number 3 in September, so my August goals are to create as many blog posts for September/October as I can. I don’t want my blog to die. 🙁

      Oh congrats on your soon to be new addition to your family! Yeah planning ahead is definitely a good plan to have. I think having at least 1 blog post a week will keep it treading above water. 🙂 I’m sure it will be fine.

    Keep up the great work! Updating old posts/images is something I’m hoping to work on too!

      Yeah I feel it is an easy way to get more views and visitors but it often gets put on the backburner. I’m going to try to redo one this weekend.

    Congrats on the awesome page views. I’m all about keeping my head above water. I have been working on updating my pins and stuff. Instead of all at once I’m just aiming for one post a week and if I do more …YAY. Best wishes to you in August.

      That’s the way to do it! I feel I would get too overwhelmed if I took it all on at once. I hope you continue to have amazing traffic and views. <3

      Twitter, twitter, twitter. I feel like I just can’t understand Twitter. I’ve been more engaged and publishing post their. I want to partake in Twitter Parties too this month. I think being active on it forsure has helped. I’m still trying to figure it out haha.
