I had read up on blogging and found the most common advice was to be consistent. So when I started, my goal was to post on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I stuck to that schedule the first few months. As my little blog grew, I found a very sweet blogging community. There are some more well known bloggers that offer a linkup. The linkups are a set topic to blog about and you can link up to their page to gain a larger audience. I am very grateful for these linkups, as they have not only provided me with a larger audience, but gave me a boost of confidence with my own little blog.
As I started 2017 I wanted to post 5 times per week. I knew it would be a challenge, but with some planning it has gone pretty smoothly. I have a schedule of each month and I plug in topics I may want to blog about, link ups, holidays, etc. so I have a guide of where to go. Nothing fancy, I am a good ol' pen and paper girl!
Here are a few fun stats about my blog!
The 3 most read posts.......
Not sure why this is the most read...but it is! Maybe because it was after the holidays and everyone was looking for a new way to save?? It was a fun post and I talked about two of my favorite things....meal prep & meal planning.
Now I have been linking up to do Friday Favorites since November. For some reason, this one in March was my second most read post. I looked back through it and nothing stands out too much to me... just a random assortment of that week's favorite things.
Well this one doesn't really surprise me too much, for two reasons. One, it is a link up with Mix & Match Mama and her BFF Erika at A Little Bit of Everything.....two very successful blogging mamas. And second... the topic.. little tips for marriage can make for an interesting read!
