Blogmas Day 1 – November Roundup and December Goals (2016)


Now you might all be wondering why I am doing a post like this on the first day of Blogmas. Well I do one of these every month and this is the time that I do them so it’s a bit of an unfortunate overlap. But I have made my cover picture Christmassy so that counts, right? 😉

Last month I set a target of 1400 blog views. This is the same goal I had in October and I managed to reach it then but it was a bit of a struggle. Last month I reached my goal and my total page views were 1421 which I am very happy about, so thank you!

For the month of December I am going to up my goal because it is Blogmas and I will be posting every day so I am going to challenge myself. This month I would like to reach 1600 page views. That is 200 more than the past two months but I hope that I will reach it! Thank you for reading this because you are helping me reach that goal already!

My Facebook stayed pretty steady this month, and by steady I mean that I don’t think it received any new likes. If you would like to change that for December then please do that over here! Write on my wall and let me know you were sent from this post as well! 🙂

I also reached 800 followers on instagram this month… a few times! Why do people follow just to unfollow? I mean it’s rude; and super frustrating! If you don’t already follow me though and you would like to you can do so over here 😉

So, from tomorrow I will be uploading more Christmas type posts and I am super excited! I love Christmas so I cannot wait to start getting more into the festive season. It’s also not too late to start Blogmas! If you don’t have any ideas then you can find some post ideas below:

    I really like that you set yourself monthly goals, I think I might start doing that too!!

    And with the Instagram thing, it’s soooooo irritating!

      Thank you so much! I get so annoyed even though I know that I shouldn’t let it affect me haha!

    Literally how annoying is it when you get followed only a minute later be unfollowed!! ?

    I really like that you set targets for yourself but does it dampen your mood if you don’t reach them or is it just more motivation to try again the next month?

    Also I tried subscribing but it wouldn’t let me ?

    Loving your Instagram too!!

      It is the most frustrating thing! Luckily I have reached all of my goals so far but some of them have been incredibly difficult and I have felt so bleak at the thought of not reaching them! It would motivate me though, I think 🙂

      Ah I have to try and fix that subscribe problem! Thank you for letting me know!

      Thank you so much love x

    Your post has given me the impetus to really be more proactive in tracking how my blog is growing. I’m adding this to my 2017 goals! And that Instragram follow-to-unfollow thing irritates me to no end. Grrrr! I liked your Facebook page and followed you on Instagram.
