Tracking Sheets to Measure Progress
To my readers who aren’t bloggers I am off topic for this post. I apologize that this post is so geared to other bloggers. This is the first post I have written for bloggers and I don’t intend to do it often. I am posting another DIY on Friday.
Since I began blogging 10 months ago I have come across numerous blogging how to articles covering every blogging topic imaginable. In this post I am not offering blogging advice, or goal setting advice. What am I offering is pretty tracking sheets that will encourage you to track your blog social media statistics on a month by month basis.
The Faerie Insiders Library
To thank the Insiders for following Faeries and Fauna I have made pretty tracking sheets in various forms and colours for each month from April thru December 2017.
Each tracking sheet is styled differently. The collage above shows a few of the different styles. I would love for you to join the Insider’s but if you don’t want to yet I understand. For readers who aren’t ready to join April’s tracking sheet is linked. Feel free to use it as a template to create you own tracker.
Setting Goals and Recording Achievements
My goals are not based on specific numbers, instead my goals are self achieving. As I have no control over second party algorithms, I don’t set goals like “I will have 200 new followers on Facebook by the end of the month. Instead I set a goal of posting every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, or I will spend 4 hours daily working on social media platforms.
At the end of each month I jot down the current monthly statistics. This is how I measure blog growth. Its also how I congratulate myself on how much the blog is growing and it also helps me set my priorities for the next months social media plan.
These little sheets are my attempt to make the numbers a little more celebratory, we can always do better, that will never change, but we can stop and give ourselves an atta girl and mark down our achievements on pretty paper.
I hope you enjoy these and find them helpful.
