November Blog Review and December Goals

Wow- I can’t believe it’s already December! It feels like November was over in the blink of an eye. I swear I was just passing out Halloween candy! I really enjoyed trying to meet my goals from last month so I wanted to take a post and reflect on my stats, goals, and make new goals.

Don’t have many pictures to share with this one so here’s my Christmas tree!

November stats:

Number of posts: 29

Number of total views: 498

Most viewed post: runDisney’s Dopey Challenge: 4 days, 4 races, 48.6 miles

Most commented post: runDisney’s Dopey Challenge: 4 days, 4 races, 48.6 miles

Number of Twitter followers: 645

Number of Instagram followers: 457

Number of Pinterest followers: 107

November goals:

  1. Focus on growing my Pinterest account– Success! I increased my followers and joined one group board though I’d like to join more in the future.
  2. Grow my Twitter followers to 600– Success!
  3. Participate in four blogger chats– Success! Squeezed some in late in the month but I made it.
  4. Comment on one blog every day– I fell flat here. I did comment on a lot of blogs but I didn’t end up with 30 comments.
  5. Stick to planned posting schedule– Success!

December goals:

  1. Find or make three group boards on Pinterest- Anyone interested in joining a group board? I think this would be a great way to boost my engagement.
  2. Curate my Pinterest boards to 50 pins each- Despite getting more followers I neglected building my boards which I’ve heard is key to success. I want to find meaningful pins that I enjoy for each of my boards to build them to about 50 pins each. If you keep a Pinterest board for your build posts please send me the link. I like supporting other small blogs!
  3. Tweet 4 times per week– I want to write/post original tweets 4 times per a week. This doesn’t seem like much but lately I’ve fallen into the rut where I’m using Twitter just to like/retweet other people which is a great way to support but doesn’t do much to show more of my personality.
  4. Beat out my old record for a post with the most views or comments- Just for fun I’d like to write a post that beats out the aforementioned runDisney post for most comments or most views. I’m hoping that a combination of a popular topic and a lot of publicity will do the trick!

What are your goals, blogging or otherwise, for December?

  1. For blogging, I try to make 20 comments a week and usually hover around 10, but with so many of my followers doing Blogmas, I think I’l be able to make it happen every week this month! I hope to read 2 more books and see all my UK mates I want to before I move back to the US on the 19th. Happy holidays!

  2. Well done on those stats Emily!! Those are also some awesome goals you’ve got there 🙂 I’ve got a Pinterest account and I’m slowly building up my account there!! I’d love to add you 🙂 My goal is to hit 2k on Twitter but I’m honestly really waiting for big things to happen in 2019!
