Monthly StatisticsSabra GilbertComment

So I ended up completely slipping on Project 365 this month! First, I got extremely busy with MPD, then we picked up a puppy! And I know that it is probably starting to sound like an excuse, but getting a puppy completely changes your way of life. Suddenly, my day's completely evolve around another living thing. He has to potty every time he wakes up. He gets good at certain times, and needs to be worn out like crazy during the day to actually sleep for three hours at a time at night (and then he usually needs to potty some more.).

Simeon and I have never talked about poop SOOO MUCH in our entire life! 

But you didn't come here to read about my puppy's poop. (And seriously, I don't want to talk about my puppy's food anymore either!)

This is usually where I would talk about what worked for me this month, but honestly, there is nothing that worked for me cause I didn't do anything to improve anything. Obviously that needs to change, but I'm still working on a new schedule with puppy. My posting schedule will be changing though from Monday - Friday to Tuesday -Saturday. It's just easier since this is technically my work week anyway!

March's Plan

Basically everything that I said last month, but to actually follow through with it!!

1|| Actually personally post to twitter and facebook

2|| Become active on Twitter

3|| Share my first Periscope on Friday, March 4th! I'll be just introducing myself and Fox and fielding any questions that you guys throw at me!

As I know do a weekly goal post, I thought a monthly one felt a little redundant. And I really want to keep on top of my statistics this year, and thought, what better way than to also just share them with you! So welcome to my new little monthly reveiw! I'll share my blog & social media statistics, along with my favorite photos from my #project365 Instagram project as well!

What Works For Me

Starting to stick to an actual schedule and blogging on a regular basis has for sure improved my monthly pageviews and followers. I would assume that I'm also tracking more traffic from Instagram since starting my #Project365 as well since I am posting on a regular basis there and have surprisingly grown my Instagram quite a bit this month!

February's Plan

Since Simeon has informed me that any money I make on this blog (that doesn't go to next years taxes or for paying for something for this blog) gets to go into a savings account for a puppy, I plan on working uber hard to up my stats and get traffic to this blog to attract sponsors! I'm also planning on revamping my sponsor plan and maybe finishing up the Blog Binder that I've been working on for so long. To do all that and make the work worth it, I really need to revamp my social media strategy!

1|| Actually personally post on Twitter and Facebook

2|| Become more active on Twitter to begin with

3|| Share my first Periscope. - I've been watching these for a while but just hadn't bit the bullet on actually. . . putting my own face on camera for everyone to see. I'm thinking about giving a little house tour, or maybe doing a Q & A Introduction Thang. I'd love to hear what you guys think!

What should I talk about on my first Periscope? What are your tips for growing your blog?
