Start of August
At the beginning of August, I had 262 page views. There were published 10 posts. I had a rough design and a rough idea about what I wanted to blog about but no clear idea of how to get from where I was to where I wanted to go.
So first, I figured out that I wanted to write about the things that are important to me in my life. As of June, I have two Etsy shops because I feel strongly that I can make a positive impact through my designs and items. I’ve been building both stores up so they are ready to go for the holiday season and I’m proud of the work I’ve done. It dawned on me that I wanted to share that journey with my customers!
Next, I knew that my business isn’t my entire life. My family and friends are so important to me. I wanted to write about how all of this relates to them. I draw a lot of inspiration from my life. At times it can
Finally, I love technology. It has always been a passion of mine since childhood. I’m an engineer by trade and I’m always looking out for the next best thing. Before major
With those goals in mind, I started blogging. But all the content in the world doesn’t mean anything if nobody was going to read it. So I started reading blogs about blogging.

End of August
Once I started learning about how to bring traffic to my blog, my page views started to go up. By the end of August, I had drawn in 618 pageviews! That’s over a 235% increase. That’s a pretty impressive number for a blog that’s just over a month old! Plus you can see in the chart below just when I started to get serious about bringing in traffic. That was at the end of the month…
My main goal right now is to build up my audience and hon my skills. I want to create the best content that solves problems people are looking for answers for. My main goal is to connect with my readers and spark discussions and conversations. I want my blog to be more than just me talking to myself!
So that’s what I’ve been up to this August!
On to September!
My September goals are to increase my content by blogging every day and increase my stats. I want to aim for more conversations and more organic traffic. And mostly, I want to continue learning and tweaking so that this blog is the best it can be!
Thanks for reading! What are your goals for the month?
