Hello gorgeous humans and welcome the post that ideally should have gone out before we almost hit the midway point of June. (And breathe.)
Recently, I’ve been feeling somewhat successful. Not necessarily stats-wise, because I’ve not been tracking that properly as of yet. But successful in terms of personal goals I’ve set for this blog. (Ie: actually fucking writing it. And doing some cool crafts, that too.)
In an effort to ride that wave for all it’s worth, I decided to set some *actual* goals for growth and . . . well, whatever other positive buzzwords fit in here. I used to set regular monthly goals for this little website and it was indescribably beneficial for my productivity.
BTW: If you struggle to make actionable, meaningful blog goals, make sure to read my how to post here.
For the month of June, I decided to keep my blogging goals somewhat simple. My overall aim for the next few months is to earn more money from this blog – so most of these goals are directed there.
I recently joined Google Adsense and the money has been trickling in from there. We’ve started averaging around 70p-£1 per day (I know, I’m a high roller) – but I think that’s a good base. At the very least, Adsense will cover site running costs.
For June, I just want to ensure that I continue an average of £1 per day – and look into some stats to improve that figure. (Cough cough, look into ways to drive a fuckton more traffic.)
My largest goal actually also ties into attracting traffic – and that’s consistently using Tailwind. Tailwind is something I have a love/hate relationship with. The product itself? Fabulous, could sing its praises for hours. Me? Problematic, annoying, inconsistent.
It’s one of those things that I know works. I can see the evidence in my massively spiked stats when I’m consistently using Tailwind. But actually sitting down and spending hours to write detailed captions and schedule Pins? Well, I’m not great at that part. So I included a daily tracker wherein I tick off all the days I have pins scheduled in every slot.
And last but not least is just my content. There are a lot of posts I want to get out in June – and a lot of really interesting ones I want to plan. Some may need materials bought or just time sunk into making them (as well as needing me to just bloody remember that they exist) so I’ve made a note of content to plan and content to write!
All in all, my June goals are pretty simple. I want to spend this time tracking some of my website data on Google Analytics, so I can set some real goals in July – and some stepping stones to get there. I hope you guys enjoyed this little insight to my brain. Do you set blog goals? What are yours? Let me know your thoughts down below!
