April: A Look Back

Hello Venturers! Can you believe April is finished already? If you were here at the beginning of the month, you’ll know that I listed out some goals and things I wanted to improve on. So, let’s take a look back and see how we did for the month!

Fun Challenge

Completed! I actually completely forgot that I had set this kind of goal for myself. I ended up doing an Easter “photoshoot” with Little P. I will accept this win.

Improvements

I did pretty well on prewriting my posts this month. There were a couple of times when I did just write and post because I let myself get behind. Overall though, I stayed ahead of the game. Another win for us.

Interaction… A definite loss for me. I let myself up swept up in my moods of “I want to talk to everyone” and “everyone better leave me alone”. This is something we will need to address for May.

Goals

Increase daily view count was a success. This month we nearly doubled our monthly views and our average daily view is double this month than it was in March. That’s so exciting! Thank you all so much for helping me achieve this goal. I’m so grateful.

Consistency was so great this month! There may have been a day or two where I posted late, but it got out the next day. I would like to look at my newsletter and find ways to improve that. A half win on this. Big win for the blog and needs improvement on the newsletter.

Quality, this one is kind of hard to judge for me. I love to write, but a lot of the time I think it’s absolutely terrible. For April I had posts that I was so excited and proud about and others where I wondered why I was even trying.

Interaction (because it was a goal and needs improvement), see above.

Reflection

As a whole, I’m super excited about April. We had our highest view day ever this month, thank you all so much for that! We gained 12 new followers and even have a few people subscribed to the weekly newsletter. Again thank you so much!! I am absolutely blown away that you are all even stopping by let alone subscribing. So, a million thank yous to you this month!

As always, let me know what you think. Did you hit your goals for April? How can I help you reach your goals in the future?

April: A Look Ahead

All right Venturers, it’s a brand new month. So far in April I’ve already had an anniversary as well as my birthday. April is definitely one of my favorite months. Who doesn’t love their birthday months? Since it’s a new month, I decided to outline some goals and things I want to accomplish for the upcoming weeks.

Goals

  • Increase daily view count
  • Consistency! I don’t want to feel like I can take a day off, especially after really good days.
  • Quality! I want to increase my quality, both in types of posts and the actual writing.
  • Interaction! I want to increase the amount of time I spend interacting with other blogs and readers

To improve

  • I want to get in the habit of prewriting my posts again. March I got into a habit of writing and editing posts the day I wanted them out.
  • Interaction, yes it’s both a goal and an area to improve on. I have days where I’m hot and cold. So, even on days when I don’t really feel like it, I still need to interact. I love hearing from everyone! If I don’t make an effort, why should anyone else?

Fun Challenge

All right, so this isn’t really a goal for me. I don’t necessarily care if this gets completed, but it would be a bit of fun. I’ve noticed a lot of fun and cute baby photoshoots. So, this month, I’m going to try and do one myself. Little P loves getting her photo taken and it’s not like I’d be sad to have cute pictures of her. Plus, I think it would be fun to share my experiences and if it was worth it.

Thank you so much for joining me in another month! I have the month planned out and am hoping you all enjoy what I have in store for you.
If anyone has any ideas or want me to write about anything specific, please let me know! Happy April!
