A look at my April goals for Simply Ramona
I remember when I first started blogging in about 2016, it was my escape and was just a little side fun. I would post a few times a month mostly focusing on beauty, skincare, and mental health. I was proud of my little space on the Internet and it was doing well. It was getting views and comments. My Twitter was getting followers and my Instagram was growing. Honestly, it was easy. It did not feel like it was hard work to get it my brand out there. Fast forward almost ten years and here I am starting over and wow oh wow has the game changed.
Some differences I have noticed
The blogging community seems to have gotten a lot smaller in a way. I have found some amazing bloggers on Twitter. In general I feel as if blogs are not as popular as they once were.
Twitter like what is that about right? I love to use it to see other bloggers and read more posts. However, sometimes it just feels like a constant cycle of the same things.
In 2016 when I had my first blog I never worried about Pinterest. I just used Pinterest to design my dream home, the dream wedding all those things. Now it has become this big platform to grow your blog on.
For April I have different aspects I want to work on. In the end, it all comes down to building my brand Simply Ramona.
My actual website
I want to change my main home page. It does not flow for me but I’m also not too sure what I want it to look like right now. When I did my research on starting a blog everyone said just start. Not to spend time trying to make it perfect. Now I want to go back and change it a little.
April goals when it comes to views
I would like to reach 1500 views on my site by the end of April. I think that it is doable and I would like to set a goal I can achieve. This way I think I will be more motivated for the following months to push myself more.
To achieve this goal I have a plan to post at least once a week. By having a consistent schedule that is once again doable will be a great motivator.
April goals for Pinterest
Still trying to figure out the whole Pinterest thing but I think I am getting there. In the last 20 days I have gotten 4.7k views so my April goal is 10 000 views. This seems easy enough to do and I’m sure once I understand Pinterest a little better it will become even easier.
I would also like to up my Pinterest following to 100 people. Following on Pinterest seems a little strange to me it is something I need to figure out just because I don’t follow much. If you are keen to help me reach my Pinterest goal here is my profile.
April goals for twitter
Twitter is another app that seems to have changed a lot and I feel like I totally don’t understand anymore. For Twitter, I would like to read 100 followers and up my engagement more. Maybe find a nice blogger community to join. Supporting other bloggers is something I really enjoy and I think through Twitter I can do that a little more. Wanna be Twitter friends? Is that even what it’s called? Here is my profile.
April goals for learning
Building my understanding of blogging and growing a brand would be a great benefit and for this reason, I have decided that every month I will do a course that relates to helping me grow. Maybe it will be Pinterest, maybe email marketing each month I will see where I need to grow more. For April I will do a course on growing my email list.
I’m excited for April and what it will bring. I look forward to working hard to grow something that is mine.
If you are reading this then thank you for helping me get one step closer to my April view goal. I appreciate you and hope your April is successful too.
