My new blog, Satisfy Her Soul has officially been live for one quarter of a year! Since I post every day, that means I have written almost 100 posts thus far. Before I get into the specific progress updates and goals for next month, I want to talk about how blogging for 3 months has been overall.
Firstly, I can’t express enough how supportive the blogging community is. There are so many resources on all social media platforms for bloggers to make connections and help each other out. It is so amazing to have found a group of like-minded individuals online that can answer my questions and inspire me on a daily basis.
Next, I want to express that although I have been immensely enjoying my journey so far blogging for 3 months, it has not been easy. Each blog post I write takes an hour or more of research, followed by writing the post with specific Search Engine Optimization, creating appropriate graphics and scheduling it. After my post has gone live it takes an additional several minutes to promote it on all social media platforms in various ways. Since I post EVERY DAY, this means blogging for about 3-4 hours each day. Even though it is a lot of work, I would not do it if I didn’t LOVE it!
Now, let’s get to the progress updates!
The most exciting part of my website analytics for this month of blogging was how many new countries visited my website! In December I was thrilled to have views from 22 different countries, and now, in January it has jumped to a whopping 41 countries!
The month is not yet over, but it’s looking like January will take the cake for the month with the most views! Slow and steady upward progress is all I can ask for. Thank you for visiting my blog- it really means a lot to me!
My Instagram who had been leading the race the past two months has now taken a back seat to Twitter! My Satisfy Her Soul account on Instagram has 287 followers, where as my Twitter jumped to 330! Next month I would love to focus a bit more in Instagram, as well as see progress on my followers from Pinterest, Bloglovin’ and WordPress and my Mailing List.
THE LIEBSTER AWARD:
As you might have seen from my post a couple days ago, Satisfy Her Soul has been nominated for the 2018 Liebster Award! I am so honoured to have been recognized this way by a fellow blogger.

BOSS LADY BUZZ:
This series of posts on Satisfy Her Soul is possibly my favourite. I LOVE interviewing Boss Ladies and sharing their stories to inspire and motivate myself and others to follow in their footsteps. Here is a recent BLB Post: Boss Lady Buzz: Cheryl MacDonald
I am excited to share some of the interviews I have been working on with some extremely exceptional women who have success in so many different areas. Stay tuned for those coming very soon!
Now that I have been blogging for 3 months consistently every single day, I might soon switch to once every two days. Maybe when I reach my 100th post. This would give me more time to make sure each blog post is of the best quality for my readers, and also give me more time to promote each one.
Next, I want to continue learning HTML coding to eventually make my website more aesthetically pleasing and functional. It is a difficult skill to learn but I have slowly been able to customize my WordPress theme to make look and work the way I want it to.
Overall, I am super happy with how everything is going and I can’t wait to continue this journey. I feel like blogging for 3 months is my first milestone, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of this first year has in store!
Thank you again for all of your constant support and readership! I wouldn’t be able to pursue this passion without you all! Much love to you and please visit again soon!
