This Month’s Top Post: How to Complete Your To-Do List in 5 Steps – 2588 Views – 9 Comments

This Month’s Runner Up: BBQ Uglies Recipe Review– 1547 Views – 17 Comments

This was a very different month for me.  The first week and a half or so I worked very hard on freelancing projects.  As soon as I finished the project I was working on, my BBQ Uglies post got more views than any post I’ve posted.  I did a few sponsored tweets here and there but for the most part, took it easy this month.

I’m not sure how, but once the ride from my BBQ Uglies post ended, my To-Do list post got a lot of attention as well and completely crushed the stats I had just gotten for the BBQ Uglies recipe.  Because of these two posts getting a lot of attention, I was able to surpass my goal of getting 5000 views in a one-month period during 2016.

March Report

This month, I increased my total social following by 13% and got a lot of projects in the works to help me complete some of my 2016 Blogging Goals.

My focus for this month was to complete my blog posts for the next month and plan some posts for future months.  I am happy to say that I was able to succeed with this and have all of my posts for April ready to go and have a few great ideas and photos for future posts.

Focus for Next Month
Next month, I plan to focus on editing my blog pages and old posts.  Somehow when I switched to self-hosted WordPress, my photos became blurry and need to be adjusted.  I also know more about Pinterest now and want to create better images for some of my older posts.

      How odd. I’m honestly quite confused by how it works. I just have the ads up and hope they work. 🙂 I’ve heard is a good alternative to Google Ads as well.

      Thanks! I’d say write about what you love. If you are passionate about it, it will show in your writing. As for freelancing, just put your feelers out as many places as you can and something will stick. 🙂
