Hey hey! This is a new type of post around these parts. I've goal set before but I haven't really focused too much on my stats. I've taken up a bit of the analytic watching over the past few months, and I figured that y'know what? We're coming into the midway mark of the year. I've been focusing more and more on the blog over the past few months and being that it's still going to be a few more months until we start to look at going back to normal, why not?
The other thing as well of course that SGW was always meant to be a platform for honesty. So, if that means sharing the growth (or decline, pray be that's not the case) - then we'll do that too!
So without further ado- the results of May:
Email Sign Ups
$0 (to be fair, I only started a week ago!)
Impressions - 39.2k
Total Audience - 35.6k
Engagement - 1.3k
Engaged Audience - 1.1k
Woohoo! Look at me go learning about how to use columns! I'm so good at this. I'm actually pretty proud of last month. Whilst I didn't have anything to officially say what I was at, I know that my Pinterest was at like, 0 on everything, so that growth within a month was insane. IG also grew by about 70 people, and Twitter grew about 50 odd. As someone said on one of my tweets earlier, growth is growth, no matter how small!
So what about next month's goals? (Well. This month. As I slept through yesterday and totally didn't post this in time. Whoops.) Great question. I figured that growth is still growth - but I really want to make Blogging eventually a full-time job. So this month I'm focusing on acquisitions and affiliates, and growing my page views. So here is June's goals.
Email Sign Ups
Impressions - 50K
Total Audience - 50k
Engagement - 3k
Engaged Audience - 3k
And that's it for my May wind up and June goals! I'll be back tomorrow with my personal goal wrap up (yay!) and I think I'll do a combined version of this next month.
What about yourself dear reader? What are you focusing on this month? Can we help each other at all? Let me know in the comments!
