Oct 1, 2017 was the start of our favorite time of the year here at Raising Good People. The Holiday season is a wonderful time when we are given the opportunity to share so much with our family and friends.

This past month and especially the past couple of weeks I have been going easy on the posts and article because I have been working on creating some very exciting content. I am creating a program that can be a valuable tool for parents or teachers to help teach their children to read. I have completed a small group of worksheets and am working on some ebooks and have a very busy schedule set for myself this October.

Some things we should know about blogging:

  1. Facebook is harder to gain a following on but the followers do interact better.
  2. Twitter is easy to gain followers but they don’t interact much.
  3. Pinterest is difficult to gain a following but once you do they are loyal.
  4. Instagram is a great platform but difficult to find a way to post from computer. (any suggestions?)
  5. Video seems to be a must now and our blog will be testing this

Last months goals:

  • Reach 25 followers on Pinterest
    • On my Pinterest Made specifically for RGP I went to 23 followers however my personal pinterest page has increased over this number to 28 followers. Both of these accounts do share very similar board types.
  • Get 50 visitors this month (previous was 35 visitors and 51 views)
    • I received 66 visitors and 76 page views. I love that even though I did not worry about as many posts due to content creation I was still able to accomplish this goal
  • Publish 2 post a week
  • Increase Twitter following to 300
    • My twitter following is at 208. There was a dip back in the 100’s when I did not not do much posting. I set up an automatic tweet system though with IFTTT and since then my twitter following is growing organically without much effort from me. I just add new tweets to my schedule occasionally and mix up some other peoples content as well which have good information for my followers
  • Start Snapchat
    • I did start a snapchat and have occasionally gone on it, however it is not my main social media focus right now.
  • Start StumbleUpon
    • I will be postponing this into the goals for this coming month since I did not get around to it.
  • Create Journal of Post Ideas
    • I did start a small journal of posting ideas which I will be continuously adding to. There is some very good stuff coming up in the future due to this goal.
  • Post to social media 5x a week per media
    • With the addition of some automated features I have been able to accomplish this rather easily.
