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
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!
