Blog Report September 2018

Hello, there friendly people!

I thought it may be fun to post a Blog Report for September 2018. I’ve seen these from a few of my blogging friends on Pinterest, and I thought it would be fun to post one of my own for my archives!

I started Hannah Truelove Writing on August 7, 2018.

I’ve tried to keep a consistent Blog Schedule since the beginning, and I’ve done my best to post something new at least once a day.

Having daily poems has helped keep this possible, and creating plenty of square images that easily post across Instagram and other social networks has helped me have success there as well.

My Successes

Things that have worked for me include:

  • Sharing posts consistently to Pinterest
  • Sharing to bookmark sites such as Reddit
  • Purchasing my own domain
  • Verifying website URL with Google and Pinterest so that I can monitor my traffic through those sites
  • Being active (daily) on Twitter and building my fellow writer and blogger communities through there
  • Being active (daily) and creative on Instagram, which is an especially good platform for poets
  • Showing genuine interest in fellow bloggers and writers, so they actually want to include me
  • Doing my homework before launching the blog. This helped me keep from making (too many) mistakes. Pinterest was an awesome resource for this.

What Didn’t Work

A few things turned out to be a waste of time:

Having too many social media accounts no one was following

Google+ was one for me, I was spending a lot of time sharing stuff here, but no one was clicking through. Twitter and Instagram gained a lot more followers, but Pinterest gives me the most click-throughs, despite a low follower count.

Facebook also had surprisingly little success, despite being where I regularly interact with friends and family. That’s alright though because my other followers are almost 100% fresh.

Setting unrealistic goals for myself

When things started to get rolling with the blog it was easy to become overwhelmed by setting unrealistic goals and holding myself to unrealistic expectations. Remember to go slow and approach blogging your way, as every blogger’s system may not work for you.

Thanks for taking the time to read! I can’t wait to see how much progress we’ve made by the end of October!

  1. What a great thing to do, a monthly report 😎. So organised.

    My Blog is just a train of thought…..and I’m probably loads older than you (my age starts with a 4!!) and I have so little time (my 7 year old is firing questions at me as I type this…….what D is a sugary cake filled with jam…..yeah got that one).

    So impressed on your post πŸ‘
