A lot has happened this past month, and I have been pretty quite around here. To make a long story short, I ended up quitting my day job. It wasn’t something I had really planned to do (at least not at that exact moment, I was thinking end of summer) but things were happening that were causing me so much stress that it was affecting my mental and physical health.
I decided enough was enough. I knew I deserved better. So even though my business isn’t quite where it needs to be (or where I wanted it to be before I quit), I know I made the right decision.
The difference in my mood and health since I left has been drastic. While I will definitely miss some people at work and I have great respect for many of them, I just knew that it was my time to go.
So now I get to attempt this entrepreneur journey full time. I know I can do this. I love designing, blogging and teaching others. This is what I was born to do. I get to share and work on all my talents and passions all while helping others.
So get ready to see more of me around here! But before I do, let’s take a look at the February blog traffic report especially since I was silent pretty much the whole month!
Blog Me Lovely originally launched in March 2015. I was not that active nor did I put much focus on the blog and growing it. So my highest traffic month between March 2015 and September 2015 was only about 300 pageviews, with an average of about 175 pageviews a month. In October I took a step back to focus on Peace Love Sequins so it is no surprise that my traffic plummeted!
I am sharing this because when I re-launched the blog in June 2016, I was basically receiving only 15 to 20 pageviews a month, essentially starting from scratch. I am going to share with you my traffic stats, social media counts, post overview, what I learned and my goals for the upcoming month.Read More
