I actually came up with this blog post, whilst I was doing the dishes. haha. But jokes aside, are numbers that important when it comes to blogging?
For me, not really. Yes I do check my blog stats every day, but I’m happy when I have 50 pages views and I get extremely happy when I get over 100. But I know for most bloggers out there, they probably get like 1000 pages views every day! I don’t have my own domain, nor do I understand all these other stats you’re meant to know.
I guess for me, when it starts all becoming about the numbers, it takes out the fun in blogging. Sometimes I do think, should I invest in more time in getting to know the numbers and stats side to my blog. Maybe it would help my blog grow, brands and PR might want to work with me. I might get more readers, followers and etc… and then I get a headache.
I started off this blog, because I wanted to be a voice to people suffering from acne, a voice to say you’re not alone, a voice to say look these products worked for me and a voice to say these products didn’t. Never in a million years, I thought I would get followers, nor get invited to work with brands or on projects. Be asked to go onto TV or get sent products to test and review. Whilst I don’t think I am in any rush to understand the numbers and stats. I have decided to set myself some milestone goals for my blog and they are:
To reach 200 followers on my blog via WordPress.
- To reach 100 followers on my blog via Bloglovin.
To reach 500 followers on Twitter. To reach 200 followers on Instagram.
I’m not going to set myself a deadline as to when I need to achieve all these milestone goals by. As they may take me days/months/years to achieve! But once I have achieved all four goals, I will be celebrating it in true blogging style but hosting a giveaway!
Once again, thank you to all those that have read/supported/followed my blog!
Are numbers important in blogging? Do you have any milestone goals you wish to achieve for your blog?
