Things I did with my blog and on social media in December
Learned about Flipboard.
So Flipboard is a cross between Stumbleupon and Pinterest. Apparently if you own a website, you can gain a decent amount of views if you remain active on it consistently from what I have read from a few blog posts. So I am hoping to use it in 2019 to grow my traffic and reach for my blog.

I removed myself from at least 150 Facebook group boards.
I was apart of so many group boards and I wanted to remove the ones that were not beneficial to me. I want to say I am currently a member of at least 200 boards, but I am unsure. I also joined 9 other Facebook group boards to help me grow my blog and social media.
I marketed more on Google Plus.
So okay, I marketed maybe 2 or 3 blog posts on Google Plus and so far it gave me a reach of… views. Google Plus only got me 19 views unfortunately. I read that Google Plus is actually supposed to be shutting down sometime August 2019 so I kind of want to gain some use out of it for the time being.
I marketed more on Pinterest.
Pinterest is where I am getting most of my traffic right now. I am trying to make at least 3 pins per blog post and I am hoping that it will help my website gain more traffic as well as potential visibility.
I started using Facebook groups more.
I shared almost all of my blog posts to Facebook groups and it was extremely beneficial. I was able to increase Pinterest pin shares, Twitter retweets, and blog views in general.
I started my “Becoming Instagram Famous” series.
I have been wanting to track my Instagram growth and following for a long time. Mainly I wanted to try different tactics to grow my Instagram following so that I would be able to make some extra money to at least pay off my student loans. December was a good month for growth. I increased my following by 162 new followers and I didn’t do much to get those followers.

I made around 50 comments on other people’s websites.
I did pretty well last month as far as engaging with other people. I am glad that I was able to keep up with it. I hope to make at least 50 comments on other people’s website’s this month too.
Things I failed at doing in December
Marketing my Facebook page and Twitter pages.
I did absolutely nothing with my Facebook page. I’ll probably invest in a social media scheduler next year for Facebook and for Twitter. I feel like it is somewhat difficult to grow it, especially after I reached 1400 followers. I think I might try running a giveaway or investing in Twitter retweets.
Goals for January
Increasing following on all social media.
Continue my “Trying to Become Instagram Famous” series.
Make at least 50 comments on other blogs.
Post on my Youtube channel.
Comment on at least 13 other Youtube channels.
Buy hosting for this website.
Buy a new website design template.
Create and post at least 3 pins per blog post to Pinterest.
Run a Pinterest ad.
Make at least $200 on Fiverr.
So that was my December Income Report and a list of my goals for January!
