Road to 10,000: Weekly Blogging Goals & Updates, Week 16

Road to 10,000:  Weekly Blog Goals & Updates, Week 16 | Sarah Smirks:  The Marketing Mama Blog (

Can you believe the weekend is over?  This week has flown for me!  I had house guests all week and it has been a madhouse around here.  With all the madness, I only wrote one post (eek).  Let's see how I did.

Blogging Goals from Last Week

Twitter:  2,900 followers
Status:  #Fail

I reached 2,831 followers this week.  With the lack of time, I struggled with taking the time to automate my posts and I didn't have a lot of fresh content, but I did make some progress!  I gained about 100 new followers and my followers were very generous with the retweets this week (thank you!).

Newsletter:  Send it out!

I started it.  I was really, really good.  BUT, you all know that my schedule is pretty crazy.  Work.  Blogging.  Wifey.  Mama.  Gym rat.  Daughter.  Sister.  Friend.  Probably the same list you girls have!  Well, because of this long, long list, I have a very strict blogging schedule.  I blog on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays at 6pm.  I literally have to schedule it that strictly.  BUT, this week, Thursday was my mom's birthday (happy birthday mom!), and that's when I had it scheduled originally to finish my newsletter.  No cigar.  My mama trumped it.  It will be going out this week though.

Hootsuite:  Try out the new campaigns feature.

I didn't get the chance, but I'm excited about it!  Here's a link that explains this new feature.

Goals for This Week

Posts:  3

It's going to be a little hard to meet this goal.  I have physical therapy and an ultrasound this week on top of everything else, but, I'm going to try!  This week I am going to write about Pinterest resources and a tutorial on creating a Pop-up subscription box with Mailchimp.

Instagram:  1,700 followers

I currently have 1,667 followers.  I am aiming to get to 1,700.  I will use Crowdfire and post some awesome curated photos.  My favorite feature on Crowdfire is the "copy followers" feature.  That's the key to growth using Crowdfire.

Newsletter:  Send it out!

AND, for real, I am sending out my newsletter this week :).  I changed up the format this month, so let me know what you think!

What are your goals for this week??
