I’m going to try and keep these blog stat reports short and to the point! If you would like to read about why I have started a blog then you can check it out here.
So let´s just jump in.
June was not the most productive month, unfortunately :(. However, as I mentioned in my first stats report I am going to be completely honest and share my exact stats. I have gone into this knowing it might take much longer to get my blog going as I only have limited time to work on the site and that’s okay! slow and steady right? 🙂
My Goals For June
- Set up the blog (although I know I will tweak it and play around with it) – Sort of…
- Writing Content – Yes
- Join group boards on Pinterest and start pinning more – Yes
- Get more Pinterest followers – Yes
- Start to get traffic – Yes
- Add Adsense – Yes
What I achieved In June
As I mentioned June was not as productive as I would have liked. My son and I came down with the flu the first week, which was certainly not in the plans! Then a family member who I had not seen in 20 years (Yikes I feel old) came to visit us! Followed by multiple birthdays etc. I only have an hour or so to work on this blog in the evenings so it completely through my ¨schedule¨out of whack.
note: I know I can use the time my son naps to work on this site, but I choose to nap at this time as well… I know when I have more kids this luxury will
most likely not exist anymore and I am taking full advantage of it while I can! 😉
Setting up the Blog
The site is still not exactly how I would like it and I’m learning along the way. There is still a lot of tweaking that needs to be done, and some important pages I still need to create. In hindsight (and it´s only month 2), I should have got the theme exactly how I wanted it before adding content but hey!
I wrote 3 posts this month but I should have really written more… a lot more. Here are the posts I did in June.
I did spend quite a lot of time on Pinterest this month, emailing group board owners and setting up my boards, which is also part of the reason that I didn´t get as much content written.
I have also been using BoardBooster to automate a lot of my pinning, but I have also been manually pinning as well as I think both are important. Boardbooster gives you 100 free pins to try out their system and if you don´t like it you can simply stop using it no obligations or upfront payments required! 🙂
While my Pinterest board is starting to take off, I know right now I need to focus on CONTENT…. Oh, and I got 13 more followers. Here are some snapshots from my Pinterest account.
I did add Adsense this week and made an entire cent yes 1 CENT! I know it’s not even a dollar but I am super happy about it onwards and upwards right!
My pageviews increase 90700% this month but the increase is not a surprise when your starting from 0 🙂
Goals for July
- More Content
- Tweak blog design etc.
- Increase Visitors
- Earn more than 1 cent….
- Get more Pinterest followers
- Adding more to my Pinterest boards
I am not going to focus so much on promoting my pins right now via the group boards and my boards on Pinterest this month as I urgently need to focus on more content and getting the layout of the site and design sorted. So those will be my primary goals.
