This Month’s Runner Up: Soft Chocolate Cookies – 409 Views – 10 Comments
May was a great month for me for growth. Even with taking a week off from promoting the blog, I still gained over 450 followers between all of my social platforms. This month I also focused on using Pinterest to gain page views and began to see a decent increase. I had about 100 views that were referred from Pinterest.
I also have an unofficial goal of reaching around 3000 views per month which is about 100 views per day. This month I definitely exceeded this goal!

This month I continued editing my blog pages and old blog posts. I still have a couple to do but I’ve made some great progress. I also began scheduling posts for #TBT to help recycle older posts.
Last month I’d said I was going to look into scheduling pins on Pinterest and I was using Viral Woot and not loving it so I am back to the drawing board on that. Once I get the Facebook #TBT posts lined up, I’ll be able to put more time into Pinterest again.
Focus for Next Month
Next month, I plan to finalize the archived blog posts and learn more about scheduling pins for Pinterest. I also hope to continue on reviving old posts to give them Pinterest worthy images. Also, I’m very close to 500 Facebook followers so I’m hoping to be able to reach the milestone in June right before my blogiversary.
