Monthly review banner

Wow where did April go? March was a bit of a crazy month as it ended with illness and April continued in the same vane, although thankfully I am feeling better due to a fat free diet, but I now have an official diagnosis and I’m awaiting surgery. It did mean there was a good week where the blog had to take a back seat, giving me time to recuperate. As a family we also went to Nice for a long weekend which was fantastic and most definitely made up for the illness! So here is my monthly review for April.

Top Things That Have Made Me Happy

  • My family got to go to Nice for a review which is just amazing.
  • I went to Gemma from A Gem’s Life wedding and met Clare from Sons, Sand and Sauvignon and Laura from Mummy LaLa which was awesome and so lovely to meet three fab ladies who I talk to everyday on social media.
  • In terms of stats, I have seen the following growth:
    • My Facebook has grown from 800 to 900 (+100).
    • Twitter from 6600 to 7000 on Twitter (+400).
    • On Instagram I have gone from  1200 to 1350 (+150)
    • Which surpasses all of my social media goals for the month.
  • I have written a guest post for The Mumington Post – Saturday Soundtrack where I talk about six songs that are important to me. Please do pop over and have a read.

Things To Focus on in May

Here are my goals for May:

May is going to be a busy month, it’s my daughter’s second birthday and mine too, it is also looking fairly likely that I will have surgery ,so I am going to keep my goals pretty modest for that reason.

  • My social media average growth is +400 on Twitter, +100 on Instagram and +50 on Facebook, so it would be great to be able to achieve this.
  • Get ahead and build up some spare blog posts to cover my operation period as I would rather not have a week of guest posts again.
  • Organise some guest blogs for when we go away in the summer.

How about you, how was your April and what are your blogging plans? xxx

  1. April sounds like a pretty good month! Definitely don’t aim for too much in May, focus on getting better and enjoying the Birthdays x

  2. I am a stay at home mom of three and I also recently started a blog as well. I love the idea of having a monthly review. I am trying to learn what realistic goals I should have for blogging, work/life balance, etc. This article was helpful just to see what others goals are. Thank you for sharing!
