Today is April crazily enough, which means that it is time for my monthly bucket list. Here’s how I got on with my goals for March and the goals I have set for April 2016.
Firstly, this is how I got on with my goals.
Increase my stats and follower numbers
At the end of last month there had been 108,714 site views on my blog, there have now been 119,539 views to my blog since I started it in January 2015. My views weren’t as crazily as good as last month, but it would be greedy to want a viral post every month ;)
My Twitter was at 11651 followers and now I have 12516.
My Facebook page was at 1486 likes, and now has 1582
Instagram was 6157 now 7342
Pinterest was 4080 and now is at 4152 – a small increase, but better than last month.
Youtube – I had 226 subscribers, and I now have 229 subscribers.
Tots 100 – Last month I was number 97 out of over 8000 blogs, this month I have been at my highest ever position of 66! That’s 10 months in the top 200 now :)
Lose a lot more than 1 lb – Absolute failure, I have put weight on. Honesty though, who was I kidding thinking I could lose weight during Easter egg season?!
Get my accounts up to date – Success, they are mostly up to date now, I just need a few finishing touches and they’ll be ready for the end of the tax year.
Get outside a lot more – We have been out a lot for long walks, days out, Easter egg hunts and more. It was a great month overall as you can see from my monthly Things I’ve Liked and Loved post.
Manage to make Fin a costume that isn’t too young, embarrassing, badly made or likely to ruin his life for school this week – I was saved from this by him deciding he didn’t want to dress up, as most of the school don’t bother apparently. I’m guessing that once you go to secondary school these days, you are just too cool to do fancy dress.
My goals for April:
Increase my followers and stats as always
Have a good birthday! – Teeny bit of a selfish one ha, but my birthday is the 15th and I’m hoping it’ll be a good one :)
Lose weight – Literally anything half a lb even would be an improvement
Pitch to a company – So far I have been lucky enough that all of my blog work has come through people approaching me, but I have something I want to pitch to a company about, so I will be brave and do it. I’ll let you know how it goes next month!
I am leaving it at that, short and hopefully achievable! I hope you all have a fantastic month
