Goals that have been reached so far: Twitter followers (reached this month), Newsletter subscribers, FaceBook page likes.
Goals that are close: YouTube subscribers.
Goals which seem unlikely: Pinterest followers (still need 375 which is more than half), monthly unique visitors (still need 1,271 if last month was average), Google+ circles (still need 701).
What I did wrong last month:
Freelancing took a lot time from my normal content creation and promotion time. I did the baseline, but I actually lost ground in unique visitors. I need to do more writing and especially guest blogging if I want my numbers to pick back up.
BTW, this was costly in another way, too. I lost my banner sponsor. I suspect it’s because my traffic dropped.
From a financial standpoint, I traded a little ad revenue for a lot of freelancing revenue, but it’s only a short-term gain, so I’m unhappy about it.
I’ve got a couple little things to finish up, but after that I need to promote like there’s no tomorrow! I might even buy some ads myself. We’ll see.
