Here we are at the first day of February.
I thought that this would be a good time to share with you how this blog has been going and any insights that I have discovered along the way.
Since making the decision to do daily posts at the start of November 2018, I have published 68 posts.
There were a few days last year where I didn’t publish anything, though I have posted one every day during January.
The most popular piece since November is The Wolves Within with 17 views (published 28 Jan 2019)
January saw 269 views, for an average of 9 per day. The most popular day was January 22nd, which saw 32 views.
Interestingly, most of the traffic came from LinkedIn. Almost doubling the traffic from Facebook.
While I haven’t been actively promoting this blog on either platform, it did surprise me that more traffic came from LinkedIn than Facebook.
This month I will start using the automated social media campaign tool, Missinglettr.
As I prefer to do things live on LinkedIn, I will leave the automated posts for Facebook and Twitter.
While the blog post ideas lists that you can find all over the internet have been handy, I haven’t really used them for this blog.
This is more because I don’t have a “target market” that I am writing for.
What I have found useful is using index cards.
Every Sunday I sit down for an hour or so and this of topics for the week.
Once I have a topic, I write a few dot points down and put in the card box.
Then when it comes time to write the day’s post, I pull the card out and see what inspires me.
Where To From Here?
Honestly, I haven’t thought too far ahead on this one.
I have no plans to monetise this site with ads or affiliate marketing.
There may be an email list coming, though haven’t really thought about when that will happen.
If you want to get notified of when there is something new on this site, you will have to click the bell in the bottom right corner and allow notifications.
Or, come back here every day after 09:30.
And to tell you the truth, I’m not really writing this for anyone in particular.
This is something that I am doing for me.
That being said.
Thank you for visiting this blog, and reading this far.
