Here it is the first of March, and it’s time to take stock of what progress was made last month, and what progress I hope to make this month. Celebrating small victories and setting new goals.
February Blogging Goals
My number one goal for February was to get moved to a self hosted site. I did that on February 25th. I have not been here a full week yet. This move means I now have to funnel the traffic from my WordPress dot com blog to this site. That will take effort and time, and I may not successfully get everyone to migrate over. It also means, I have to build the audience for this blog from the ground up.
March Blogging Goals
I have a lot of things I want to accomplish in March. Things that will help me grow this blog reach more people.
Google Analytics. I took 3 day Skyrocket Your Blog Pageviews Class offered by The SITS Girls. I bought the ebook to go along with it, so that I could better understand the data I am seeing in Google Analytics, and what I can do to grow my blog.
Building a Profitable Blog. I also signed up for another SITS Girls class, Building a Profitable Blog from Day One. A 5 day class that teaches you to give your blog a boost and set up the foundation to start making money.
Pinterest. There is a ridiculous amount of people using Pinterest and I am totally missing out on a tremendous amount of traffic from a free resource. So I have decided I am going to learn about Rich Pins, and how to drive traffic from Pinterest here.
On top of these three goals, I am also looking into a blogging schedule and writing better content, and joining linkups. I have given myself 90 days to increase my traffic and establish myself on my self hosted site before I start looking into possibly monetizing my blog.
March is going to be a busy busy month for me, but one I hope sees more traffic, better blogging and starting to make a real name for myself.
