July Results & August Goals 2020

Ugh. UGH.  This month sucked.  Okay. Now that's out of the way - welcome to the July Results & August Goals 2020 post.  Each month I review my month before, and I look at the goals for the month ahead.  I knew right in the first few weeks of July that this was going to be a month where my stats would drop.  I had a really depressive episode and didn't post for nearly that whole time period.  I'll accept it, and I've learnt from it, and I'm actually okay with the drop.

So in AWESOME news, I finally went up a DA point (via Moz) so that's been a win!   And minus Pinterest, I actually still made growth on most of the other things I was aiming for.  So short and sweet on this one, let's look at what I'm aiming for in August:

Impressions - 80k

Total Audience - 80k

Engagement - 2.5k

Engaged Audience - 2.5k


I've changed the criteria on page views to see if I can break the 1k mark rather than a total view.  I'm also wanting to do the following:

  • Post 12 posts on here
  • Post on Instagram every day
  • Post at least 1 story on IG every day
  • Finish 2 digital products and get them up for sale
  • Upload 5 new pins to Pinterest daily
  • Take a photo a day to restart the 365 day project 


As we're now coming into the last month before the big move interstate - whether or not that this happens is anyone's guess, but fingers crossed!

Wrap Up


All in all, although last month was disappointing, I'm not super upset about it, and this month is a new month!  I've got lots of cool new ideas, my spark is currently there, and looking at planning as much as possible.  How did you go last month? What's your goal for this month?  Let me know in the comments below!

    Thanks! I try to do 3-5 pins a day. It’s easy on days when I have a new post but I sometimes struggle to keep creating fresh pins on other days. For August, I am trying to put together a schedule and plan in advance. We’ll see. You can check out my pins at https://www.pinterest.ca/michelleo13/

    You’re doing great. I have a lot of content planned for August but I am rethinking my strategy for the fall. I have been doing 3 posts a week since June and it has really helped to grow my views but I am spending WAY too much time on this. Mainly, I’m spending time fiddling with Pinterest with little return. I might go down to 2 posts a week for the fall, or I might stay at 3 and give up on Pinterest. I’m thinking of doing Blogmas as a little challenge to wrap up the year.

    So much to think about! LOL

      How are you doing your Pinterest pins? I find I do get a bunch of views from our friends on there, but you just need to get into a routine for actually making and submitting those pins! Let me know if you want me to look at any of them for you! I think you’re doing great at the moment too!

      Blogmas sounds fun – I keep seeing that pop up everywhere! I’m considering this as well, but Blogtober is also around the corner. Eeek, there’s too many options haha
