September Roundup and October Goals (2016)


September marked the second month of having my blog and I am still loving it! This month has been so busy at work so finding time to write posts that I am happy with has been hard at times but seeing the response to posts makes it all worth it. You can also read my post about how I juggle work and blogging over here.

Seeing as it is October it is time to to share my October goals with you. Last month I passed the goal that I set for myself and my blog received 1009 views so I challenged myself to reach 1200 views this month which was quite a bit higher. I managed to reach that goal and actually went passed what I wanted. My page views for the month of September were 1333 which I am very happy about! I could not have reached that without all of you beautiful people who read my blog.

My goal for October is to reach 1400 page views! This month I struggled to get as many comments on my blog asΒ I did last month so I would also love to get more of those this month as well. In October I also managed to reach 600 Instagram followers which is crazy! I have been very happy with my instagram engagement this month and if you want to add to that you can always check it out here πŸ˜‰

Thank you to everyone who has read and commented on my blog posts this month, it means so much. I also want to thank all of you that have followed and engaged on my instagram account during October.

What are your October goals? They can be personal or related to your blog (if you have one). Let me know in the comments below!

    Hmmm, my October blog goals… I think it’s to get more comments on my posts.
    And to post more this month… Writers block hits more often than not, but I really hope I can get out of it soon and when it hits.
    And maybe another giveaway… It will actually be fun… I just need to think of what to give away!
    Any ideas?

    I love you blog and your Instagram account. One of the bloggers, I actually like to interact with and read what latest post you’ve posted.

    Keep up the good working lovely.
    Have a great day.

    GIRL, killin’ it! Love that! I had one of my posts spread like wildfire (for me, anyway) this month so it’s been a CRAZY change in page views! Obviously I know that won’t necessarily happen for October, so I’m trying to make sure my goals are reasonable!

    Congrats on amping up the page views! πŸ™‚ Love it!

    Congrats on doing such great things and wishing you luck achieving your other goals, you produce great content so I’m sure you won’t have a problem! Blog wise I don’t really have any goals because it’s just a hobby; if I had to say anything its just to force myself to post with consistency so I’m constantly giving myself chance to be creative πŸ™‚
