May: A Look Ahead

Hi Venturers! Today we’re going to be taking a look at goals and things I want to be improving for the month of May. Here we go.

Goals

  • Social media. This month I want to be increasing my social media presence. I want to create a Pinterest and keep working on my Twitter. Ultimately, (for Twitter) I’d like to have a nice balance of personal tweets as well as promotion.
  • Increase weekly view count. This month I’m trying to get my weekly views in the 100 range. We’re doing about half of that right now and I think we can reach more people.
  • Increase personal engagement. I follow so many wonderful blogs and I want to show them some love as well! This month I’m dedicating time every week where I go onto others’ sites and interact with them. I truly love what I read from others and I want to show them that this month.
  • Keep consistency and planning up!
  • I need to revamp Venture News (our newsletter). I need to find something exciting to do with it.

To Improve

  • Site look and functionality. I want to improve the overall look and feel of the site. Nothing too crazy, just a fresh paint of coat.
  • Quality. Again, I just want to make sure I’m putting out good content.
  • Posting time. I want a consistent time I put out my posts. So, I want to see if a specific time seems to work better this month.

I don’t have a fun challenge for this month. We’re also moving, so I guess if you want a fun challenge, then mine is to successfully pack and move without losing my mind. I hate moving.

Anyway. Let me know what you all think! What are your goals for the month?

As always, thank you so much for being here and I will see you next time!

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!
