A Month In Review – October

This month has whizzed by! I can’t believe it’s November already. It will be Christmas before we know it – which is great for me because I LOVE Christmas (check out my christmas giftguide giveaway!) Anyway, digression as usual – how was October in all things bloggy?

Goals for October:

1: Pitch a brand for a review

2: Keep up the higher views

3: Keep up the social media increases

Well…I *kind* of did number 1. I posted about needing a planner on twitter in a hinty tweet, and someone else put me on to Pirongs, who happened to be doing some blogger work. Does that count? Probably not. I did actually write a pitch too, but it tailed off and the PR stopped answering, so that was a slight fail!

Higher views and social media though, well! I’m running 3 giveaways at the moment and boy do they give your views a good kick up the bum. At the time of writing this (yesterday!) I am less than a 100 views away from 10,000! Amazing! Even without the giveaways I would have had my best month so far – it’s really gratifying seeing so much hard work turning into numbers I can be proud of.

I’ve had less new twitter followers this month, but still more than 1,000 so I’m not going to complain. I still need to work on the other platforms!

High Points Of The Month:

1: Guest posting on BabyCentre

2: Getting a Mumsnet front page

3: Views!

I love guest posting, and it’s something that I pitched to do, so I was really pleased to see my name up there on a highly respected and well read website! Not that I know if anyone actually read it or not – but here it is you want it – The Five Stages of Weaning.

I was also pleased to finally get on that dratted Mumsnet front page! Yes! I should clearly write more feminist stuff!

So pleased with the views this month, really happy with them (even though I went down in Tots – why? Why Tots?!?)

Goals for November:

1: Pitch for more guest posts/get on Mumsnet/Britmums again – so good for DA! Which went down 1 this month, grr.

2: Work on Facebook and Instagram – twitter is good, but if you can crack Facebook you’ve made it.

3: Keep up the earning – I’ve done ok this month, and I’d like to keep on in the same fashion!

Blogs I’ve Loved This Month:

The PENIS campaign – a very serious matter for parents who have lost their sense of humour during childbirth…and an apology to men, both from Another 10 Things
