Blog Traffic Report Numbers
In July, I had 9,085 page views (+42% vs. last month)
What I’ve realized is that my top 5 posts drive at least 80% of my traffic for the month. However, my new posts generate that extra 20%, which is important. Also, 3-4 months after a post is live, it seems to really gain traffic for me. At this rate, I’m hoping to break 100K monthly page views by late spring or early summer next year.
I also started a content calendar last month, which I’ve included in my new online course. It’s helping me to be more strategic about what I’m posting and when. A plan is also helping to batch work. I have found with any component of owning your own business, creating a formula is key to making consistent, value-added content. So far, the tricks to growing are consistency and Pinterest.

My goal is to start writing ahead in August, which will then let me schedule my newsletters in advance. More importantly, I want to break 10,000 pageviews this month!! Will you help me? You can sign up for my newsletter on the sidebar or at the bottom of the blog.
