Hey lovelies! As some of you might know already I was pretty disappointed with my engagement on the blog throughout May, I was so busy with work that I wasn’t getting many posts scheduled ahead of time so I was having to rush them at the last minute as I wanted to get something up for you! I also wasn’t as active on social media and this really affected my stats! The last few days of the month I really managed to pull it back though and we reached over 1.6K views so thank you all so much if you visited/left a comment it really means the world to me!
Anyway, I’m not usually much of a goal setter as I hate the feeling of failing but I thought if I set my self some small goals it may encourage me to be more active on the social medias I want to grow and this will hopefully help to increase my stats!
Here is what I want to achieve by the end of June:
- 1.5K Twitter followers – I’m currently at just over 1.3K followers on Twitter and it’s the social media I’m most active on so hopefully this will be pretty achievable!
- 500 Instagram followers – I know Instagram is the hardest platform to grow with the follow/unfollow game and I’m terrible at staying active on there! I’ll post everyday for a few days then forget or have nothing to post for a good 3-4 days! I want to try to post everyday in the hope it’ll increase my following!
- 600 blog followers – I can’t believe how much my blog has grown in less than 6 months! I’m already well over 500 followers on here which was my target for the whole of 2018 so I’m hoping to reach 600 by the end of this month!
- Reach 2000 monthly views – in March I was 22 views away from reaching 2K for the month! Ever since then my target has been to reach 2K but unfortunately I haven’t managed to get there yet. Hopefully this will be my month!
I also want to start reaching out to brands for collaboration posts! This will be a huge step for me and I’m super nervous. As I’ve already said, I hate feeling like I’ve failed so getting a no from a brand I’ve asked to work with would be devastating but I know I’m likely to have 100s of knock backs before I find someone willing to work with me!
I’d be really grateful to anybody who has any advice on the best way to reach out to brands you want to work with! I’m hoping by the end of the month to have sent out a few emails to brands I love but nerves may get the better of me so we’ll have to wait and see!
If you’d like to help me reach my June goals you can by following me on Twitter and Instagram! I’ve posted both my handles below so you know where to find me, I’d be super grateful if you do!
