Road to 10,000: Weekly Blog Goals & Updates, Week 8
How was your holiday weekend? Mine was lovely. It was my son's second birthday and we got some amazing news that I will share with you later. But, enough with the chit chat. How about we get to my weekly blog goals and updates? I'll tell you what, I should have taken into consideration the holidays when I made my goals. There's a little foreshadowing for you...
Blog Goals from Last Week
I ended up getting to 870 sessions for the week. The previous week, I had 853 sessions, so I still did better, despite the holiday weekend and people probably vacationing and spending less time on the internet. I'm not mad at it.

Once again, my most popular post was....
Pinterest: 300 Followers
I knew this was a stretch. I was at 185 last week and this week I have gotten to 250. Not quite the 300 I was hoping for, but a definite improvement.
Twitter: 2,500 Followers
Can I quote myself for a moment for the sake of self deprecation? "I think I shouldn't have an issue getting to 2,500 (I say that now... haha)." Well, I'm at 2,453 followers so, I guess I can eat those words. I was very busy this week, which meant no Twitter chats. Next week though, next week.
Blog Goals This Week
I have to be real now, one of my blog posts went very mildly viral and it's bound to die off this week, so I'll aim for a slightly higher goal for 900/week. I plan on participating in link parties, creating multiple title images for my posts, and posting more Tweets for my own content on Twitter.
Instagram: 1,400 followers
I am going to continue following my plan of attack that I am teaching in my Instagram mini e-course. This strategy has helped me increase my followers 80% over the past month (not bad, right). You can sign up to learn my strategy here!
Twitter: 2,500 followers
I will plan on participating in at least one Twitter chat and Tweeting at least every 2 hours (thanks to Hootsuite of course. I'm not a robot!).
Pinterest: 300 followers
I'm doing it people. I will reach 300 followers this week. I will follow relevant boards, comment more (not hard, since I never comment), and try and get added to one more group board.
What do you plan on doing to grow this week?
