So far, my page views have doubled in number since I started my blog. This has a lot to do with using social media and getting my blog out into the world. It hasn't always been easy, but my blog is growing day by day. It has involved a lot of experimenting for me to get to the place than I am today, and I am eternally grateful for my blog support group for giving advise and support.
I have received one request for a review so far. I will not be paid for publishing this, but it will help to grow my audience. Keep looking for my new Sleuth app review! I will post the review as soon as the app comes out. I hope that with this opportunity, I will discover more review options and will eventually get paid for it. This is a step in the right direction!
I have also had two famous writers comment on my work. Their names are Laurie R. King and Anita Lobel. To admit, I did give them a little push by sending them the links about them, but it was entirely their choice to read and comment on my work. I am so proud of this achievement, despite how small. I hope to speak with more amazing writers in the future.
I have 12 followers with mail chimp. I am a bit disappointed by this, but I know that I will eventually get up to my goal of 20. It is still more than it was in the beginning and I am grateful that it has grown, despite my failed attempts to promote it. Just a reminder, the first 20 followers get to name the Shrew!
Here are my goals for the future:
As I said before, I want to achieve 20 followers with mail chimp. I also want to get 100 likes on my Facebook page. I have 44 likes so far and am proud at how well that is going. I also want to double my audience and start making money on my blog using Google Adsense, Amazon Associates, and paid reviews. If you have any suggestions or would like me to review something, let me know! I also want to find my writing voice and make a difference in someone's life before the year is through.
Thank you once again for your support! I hope to hear more from all of you in the future!
