The month of March is complete! I can’t believe how quickly this year is going by. I am a little late on posting this but a lot has been going on. Some exciting news, but not ready to share quite yet!
Let’s get right to it and recap my goals for the month of March! I can already say, it didn’t go as planned and that’s okay! We all have hiccups in life and it takes some time to get back on track. I’m hoping April will be that month!
My goals for March were:
- Post a New Quality Blog once a week
- Workout 3x a week
- Social Media: Pinterest (Gain 100 More followers and create a pinning strategy)
- Blog View (Average 180 – 250 Sessions a day)
Let’s dissect the first goal I had in March of posting one quality post a week. Unfortunately, the month of March I failed at this. It was almost like my creative juices ran dry and I just had no motivation to write. I did post a great article called Travel Trailers Overview: A guide for beginners! Although I didn’t post much, I am satisfied with the one I did post!
On to my fitness goal of working out 3x a week! This I did not complete! I am still doing yoga which is helping me gain my strength back up as well as flexibility. I also started to walk more as long as I was feeling up to it!
My third goal regarding Social Media was all about Pinterest. The goal was to gain 100 more followers and continue to refine a pinning strategy. I started with 379 followers and I am happy to announce that I now have 463 followers, and averaging 108k Monthly viewers. This goal was almost completed! I still hope to continue to grow my Pinterest.
The Final goal I had was my blog/website views/sessions. I averaged around 80 to 150 a day, and unfortunately, this is still average. Unfortunetly, this goal was not met either! My blogging traffic has actually went down. I know it is because I failed on my pinterest strategy and I did not write very many posts this month. I still get traffic, but it’s not increasing.
This month I realized how important it is to keep up with writing new content, posting and engaging on Facebook Groups and Pinterest. Keeping these in my blogging strategy and posting consistently is key to gaining traffic to my blog.
April 2019 Goals:
Goal 1: Post a new quality blog at least once a week
I am hoping that this month of April I can get back on track and crush this goal! Motivation, motivation, motivation!!
Goal 2: Work out 3x times a week.
This is one very important right now! Working out is going to be very beneficial for me and I am hoping to actually work out 4 to 5 times a week for atleast 30 – 40 minutes.
Goal 3: Social Media
I am keeping my Pinterest goal for April. I know how important this platform is for bloggers to gain traffic, especially with seeing my number decrease after not completing this goal. I would still like to gain another 100 more followers on Pinterest and continue to refine a better strategy for pinning.
I will still continue to use Tailwind, and develop a greater pinning strategy using their software.
Goal 4: Blog Views Sessions
With Google Analytics I will continue to check on my views and sessions per day, as well as, begin to look at my weekly and monthly sessions. I did notice that my session on a monthly average is increasing.
For December (when I signed up for Google Analytics) I had 1.9K sessions. For January, I had 2.5K sessions and for February I had 3.1K sessions. I failed for the month of March and ended the month with only 2.7K sessions.
Therefore, I am needing to focus on my pinning strategy. This will help bring up the blog traffic.
So, I am going to set a monthly goal for April at 3.5K sessions on my blog.

Goals for our DEBT FREE JOURNEY!
Currently, we are still sitting at Two Credit Cards, 1 personal loan, 1 large student loan, RV loan, and a truck loan averaging about $95K in debt. As much as we want to pay things off, a huge life event has halted that ability for us. It’s life and things happen! We are excited about this year and what is to come. Although we are not able to pay off things quickly as we have planned, we are still saving money and living as frugal as can be.
I am excited about April! As I am writing this post, I am enjoying the amazing 75 degree weather here in Texas. The trees and flowers are blooming, and being able to work outside is a blessing on days like today. I am hopeful that I will get back on track and crush my goals for April!
Comment below, what are your goals for this month? Whether it’s for your blog, business, or lifelike physical fitness or finances! I would love to know and cheer you on!
