Hello March

Hey everyone, welcome back to another post. I can’t believe it’s March already . Each month I try to make goals and improvements towards my blog and social media. This helps me keep going and help me improve indifferent ways to improve and accomplish my goals I set. Sometimes I honestly don’t met my goals because life takes over. But new month so new goals and try again. So for this March post I wanted to share this months goals.

First Goal : Consistency
I always have this goal every month! I always try and show as much consistency as possible. The reason I always try and keep this as a goal is because it’s hard to get where you want to be if you show no consistency in your plan. Also because am a mother it’s hard to always be consistent because of course being a mother comes first. And sometimes things don’t always go as planned. It’s always hard for me to meet my goals and get my blog to where I want to be. For example I was suppose to have this post up for awhile now lol. It’s actually way over due but I’ve been super tired and drained from the week so it’s now going up now. But I’ll still try and practice consistency!
Second Goal: Planning

Now goes as smooth as planning and organizing. Planning and organizing my thoughts for the day, week and month helps me so much. And because if a busy schedule I constantly have if I don’t do this at least a bit then I wouldn’t get any posts out at all. I’d most likely just not bother and drop everything. I actually already started doing this for the month of March and I feel super accomplished and proud of myself.

Third Goal: Promoting

Okay, so this one I really got to work on lol. Honestly I don’t always got time to promote my content the way I want to.or at least how long. This year every month I want to really invest my time into networking and promoting my blog posts. I have realized I am not going to get where I want or the views I want if you don’t invest your time into marketing. It plays a huge role on being a blogger and I want to accomplish something towards my blog for 2020. Even if I have to try different methods I will.

Fourth Goal: Social Media

Social media, well to me kinda goals hand in hand with promoting. I know I already have to work on at least posting once a day if I can. Neglecting social media pages will lead to unfollowers and less engagement. So far I have been sticking to my goal and I have been posting everyday or every other day. Being a mom it can be hard to get content out there for your Instagram depending what content you do and using my planning method it has helped so much! I have content planned for the next for days at least. If you haven’t been following me yet you can find my Instagram HERE.

These are my main goals for March I love to follow every month. It has helped me a lot when trying to get myself out there. Nothing is more frustrating then feeling like your in the same spot and haven’t been accomplishing anything but I decided to live by these. Thanks for reading today’s post if you haven’t got to read my last please do so you can find that post HERE. If you have any goals set for this month please share. Like, share and leave a comment.

Hello December

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I can’t believe it’s the first of December already! I find it insane that the year is coming to an end already. And its also me and my husband birthday month. I am thinking of doing an birthday post for the week of my birthday but I am unsure of what to write about. If not I will most likely be putting up extra posts on my social media. If you are not yet following me on their you will find it on my page. For this post I will be doing my November in review.

November, I returned back to blogging. I did not get to put out as much blog posts as I wanted but I am happy that I at least got to get some out then none. November I decided to focus on a lot more personal posts. I wanted to do a lot more life style posts. I realized that I don’t open up a lot on my blog or social media. Not as often and I wanted to not many as you may know that I am an introvert. And blogging is a way for me to open up more. November I decided to use that month to make it a month to open up.

Stats

November was a great month for me in search engine results. It’s not much of a big number but the days I never post and I was still getting views on my page. I find it a amazing how you can write a blog post from a year and two ago and it can randomly become popular in a certain month. I have one blog pertaining to fashion that i wrote in my first year of blogging and now it’s getting tons of traffic in November. My overall views for November was not to bad it is kind of where I wanted it to be. I am hoping to gain a lot more for December. I am planning to end the year off on a good stat in views and traffic.

December Goals

Now for December, I won’t be doing blogmas for this year but I do want to put out a good amount of posts for the end of the year. I won’t promise but I will try just because being a mommy and keeping up with posts is unpredictable already. So great news is I already got posts lined up for December. Make sure to look out for new posts Monday and Wednesday’s. I will be doing Christmas related posts which is exciting because I love to include my kids a lot in these posts. I hope I can achieve my goals for this month so I can end it even better as last year. If I can’t it is still okay because there is January 2020! Thanks for everyone for reading today’s post, if you haven’t got to read last post you can find that HERE! Please follow if you haven’t already and like & comment I always love to hear from you all. Until next post!

Apps I use for Blogging

Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Monday! I hope everyone’s weekend went well? Last Wednesday I put out a blog post on how I organise my blog posts and I decided to now do an update post on all the apps i basically use for blogging and what I use them for. From since the last post I have used different and new apps that really help me a lot and this can maybe help you out so lets get right on into it!

Plann

So the first app we will be looking into is plann, this app is made to help plan and organise your Instagram postings before uploading them to your Instagram. This app is a huge life saver for me and I pretty much use it all the time, it helps me plan out and upload everything I want to it so I can plan out a whole week of Instagram uploads to post. This app also helps me keep my Instagram colour scheme I want and not post something that doesn’t go with my colours I have going already.

Canva

Next is canva, almost every blogger probably knows canva. This app is like one of the top must haves for a blogger, this app is for designing. I use this app for designing all my blog covers and Instagram story graphics etc. This app pretty much goes hand and hand with Pinterest because this is what everyone is using to make their blog pins.

Pinterest

Ok, so everyone has Pinterest ! I always had a Pinterest account way back and pin and bit here and there but never really focused on Pinterest and all what it does until now. I am fully in the Pinterest obsession now, I am now making use of Pinterest for my blog, I am still trying to get my Pinterest strategy and see what works for me but so far so good. I must say Pinterest is like the best yes for getting your blog noticed getting whole loads of traffic but a huge frustration if you ask me.

VSCO

Most people use VSCO, I only mostly use this app to whiten my backgrounds in my photos for my Instagram. This app is really great for overall photo editing I would recommend it for blogging, but overall I use this app only for background whitening.

Preview is pretty much another Plann, it helps organise and help sort and plan out everything you would like to post before uploading your photo. I love using this app for photo editing, if you are looking for an app that can help with colour coordinating your Instagram and making a colour scheme I highly recommend this app. It also helps you with your stats for Instagram you would just have to connect your account.

Tailwind is an app that I just started using, I am still trying to understand it and figure out how this whole app works. But I love using this app to organise and plan and schedule my pinterest postings. I also connected my Instagram account but I dont find it helpful for Instagram just because I have another way of posting my Instagram. This app has help me gain loads of monthly viewers to my pinterest account over night just by planning and scheduling postings for over night. I am still trying to understand and build with tailwind tribes, and find a strategy that works best for me. If you do not have tailwind I would recommend getting it, it is a huge help for pinterest gaining huge amounts of traffic. Hopefully this post has helped with maybe adding something new to your blogging, I hope I somewhat explained how all these apps work. Sorry for todays late posting ( life has taken over) next post will be up Wednesday at 9am EST.

Goodbye 2018

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another blog post! It’s crazy it’s the last day of 2018. It went by so fast I feel like it just zipped through, this year was a bitter-sweet year for me to be honest I can’t complain. Everything that happened made me better or just made me stronger, I am now so ready to bring in the new year and make new memories with my family. I am also excited to see what 2019 has in store for me I hope its more sweet than bitter.

A lot has happened to me in one year, a whole lot of emotions but of course am not going to get into everything. Here are my highlights of my year!

  1. My oldest daughter starting her last year of kindergarten – This was really emotionally for me because she is just not a baby anymore.
  2. Finding out I was Pregnant – Of course because this was the biggest surprise!
  3. The birth of my second daughter – This was of course the biggest, five whole years later another daughter. I will never of course forget those precious moments I experienced.
  4. Seeing my husband go back to school – This was a huge moment for me because he finally found what he loves doing and he took a huge leap and went back. Especially in an odd time because I was pregnant that moment and he is doing it all while being a father.
  5. Starting my blog – This was a total unexpected experience for me, from leaving a job I somewhat hated and one day picking up my laptop and finally starting a blog that I always wanted to do but I always procrastinated. But it just wasn’t the time and that day I picked up my laptop and did it was the right time.

I can’t not wait to embrace 2019 and see what it has in store, its crazy how the days are just flying by so fast. Now everyday we just have to soak in every last-minute before it just flashes before our eyes. 2018 has gone too fast for me but I would like to see what my next chapter holds, what is one of your biggest 2018 moments? Remember to like & comment I always love to hear from you all! Thanks for reading!

Happy 26th Birthday to me!

Good morning everyone, happy Tuesday! I can’t believe we’re this far into December already I feel like everyday has gone by so quick. The 11th has approached So quickly already it’s insane, I have been so busy and sleep deprived that I literally forgot it was my birthday my husband told me happy birthday after 12am and I couldn’t believe I forgot my own birthday.

Anyways a happy 26th birthday to me! I literally remember last year birthday a whole year ago on my 25th. Me at home not knowing what I wanted to do career wise feeling lost and me also praying and hoping for a baby. My husband supporting me still and helping me through everything even surprising me and bring home this cake.  And wow now a whole year later! Life is really full of surprises, and it’s crazy what we all can do in one whole year. I found what I love and finally decided to do blogging and hopefully soon turn it into a full blown job and I just had my baby and I found joy in being at home with my kids and doing what I love. When I think back to a year ago I am so proud of me, and to be honest I did it all by accident. I went after what I love and I kept going and of course I couldn’t have done it without my husband. He pushed me to do my blogging and kept the faith and supported me through all our difficult times. And all I can say is here to another year and bring on 27! Let’s see what a whole another year can bring I am ready! And after having two kids I must say 26 couldn’t look any better. Thanks for reading remember to comment and like I love hearing from you all.
