First off – THANK YOU! Thank you so much for tuning in, and supporting this journey. I have more readers than ever … so something must be working so here goes year number two!
WHAT I LEARNED
Well, it’s definitely more work than I thought – but I love it. Writing a post is just the beginning. I am slowly becoming an expert at SEO and learning that social media is a necessary evil.
MOST POPULAR POSTS
Ikea Hack – The Liatorp Glass Door Bookcase and most of the DIY posts … so clearly I need to get busy, roll up my sleeves, and hit my project list.
While most of my time is spent on the blog itself, I actually almost enjoy writing my newsletter the most, and I think it might be some of my best writing at times. Join the list so you don’t miss out!
Promoting a post after it is written. There is no use in a great post if no one knows about it. You have to post on Instagram, Facebook, my other Instagram, Pinterest, and then my newsletter. It’s a lot of moving pieces.
MY SECOND YEAR GOALS
Of course having more money come in than goes out would be fabulous and is always a goal, but I would also love to write more DIY and design posts. That means more DIY and design projects. We are about to embark on a big house project so hopefully that will help! I have lots of ideas.
I also want to restart my Women Who Inspire Series. I love celebrating other women and the cool things that they are doing. I think I started out a little too ambitiously trying to feature one woman a week. I think I need to go to one or two a month. Please let me know if you have anyone you would like to see featured.
WHAT I NEED FROM YOU
Without you I would have no one to write for, so what do you want to hear? Please leave a comment below or send me an email. And if you LOVE the blog, please tell a friend.
Thanks so much for tuning in!
