August Roundup and September Goals (2016)

Today I’m going to share a mini blog roundup for August as well as my September goals! I have officially had my blog for over a month now and last month was a huge one for me. I worked so hard to get everything ready and everyone has been so lovely and supportive. This month I only actually made a goal on how many views I wanted halfway through the month but I wanted 500 views and I managed to double it! What? Yes, that’s right – this month my blog views were 1009! I am honestly so shocked and surprised and I could not be more grateful to everyone who has been reading and commenting on my blog. Thank you so much!!

My old blog received 3970 views in 2 years so I am extremely proud to have started so well this month. In the month of September I hope to reach 1200 views from all of you lovely people. I am sure that with all of the work that I am putting into my blog and with people as amazing as you I will manage to do just that!

I have met some really lovely people through my blog – mainly through Twitter and Twitter chats! Some of these people read and comment on so many posts so thank you for that! I really appreciate it! If you have never taken part in a Twitter chat before then I would definitely recommend it. They are so much fun and normally focus on a specific topic. I love these because you can meet people who enjoy the same things as you!

I also reached another huge milestone with regards to my blog in August – I reached 500 Instagram followers! It came as a shock to me – so thank you again! It has taken a long time but I am also finally starting to find an Instagram theme that I am happy with! Hopefully I can continue with it!

Do you have any September goals? They can be personal or blog related. Let me know in the comments x

    I came across your blog from the FB group The Blog Loft. Congrats on the blog success! I like how your goals are achievable. What Twitter chats do you recommend? Right now, I mainly use @@SitsGirls. I posted a blog post similar to yours – Best Articles from August & Plans for September.

      Thank you so much! I quite enjoy The Girl Gang, Ask A Blogger, TeacupClub, and lbloggers chats. There are so many different ones though. I find out about a new one each week 🙂 I’m going to go over and comment on your post right now!

    Congratulations on reaching your targets – well, not only reaching them but smashing them! It’s great to hear that such a new blog can do so well, long may it last 🙂 I haven’t joined a Twitter chat so maybe that must be my goal for September! X

      Thank you so much! I don’t have many followers at all haha! I have bloglovin and I follow loads of people on there but I don’t often read blogs on there to be honest. It does give you a bit of exposure though 🙂

    I have just started up my own blog two months ago so I know how it feels to see you blog grow in front of your eyes. I am still getting the hang of twitter, Instagram and blogging but I think I am starting to get there. Congratulations on your milestones, sound like you are doing really well and all that hard work is pay off x

    Well done on receiving such amazing views ?

    I enjoyed reading this post. My goals for this month are to work hard in my new job when I start on Monday and I would like to be successful with an online publication I’m hopefully going to share my work with.

      Thank you so much! Ahh good luck! I am sure that both will be amazing! x

    These are amazing goals and amazing achievements! I find its extra hard to gain followers on instagram, so getting 500 followers is an amazing milestone. In September, I hope to create some of my own t-shirts again and just stay calm, happy and healthy. Seems like a cliche, but that’s what’s important to me right now above everything else- oh, and my blog of course! Great post lovely X
