It’s My Second Blogiversary! Mid Year Accomplishments

It’s my Second blogiversary (blog anniversary)! Today makes two years since I clicked publish and purchased my domain. It's been a challenge to be consistent, but I am grateful to still be a resource and inspiration to others! If you look at last year’s blogiversary post, I highlighted some of my accomplishments and goals. 

Let’s see which ones carried over to this year:

If you check out my end of year blog post, you will see that I set a goal for myself to write 120 posts.
I have written 28 blog posts so far. By the end of the year, I will have reached 120. 
I began a Monthly Guest Interview Series (with the exception of once a week all the month of June)
To view the rest of my goals be sure to take a look at my blog post.

Learn more about why I started this blog.

Because I do want to make blogging a full-time income eventually, I have been working on my own social media growth as often as possible.
I achieved:
1200+ Instagram Followers
6000+ Twitter Followers
1800+ FaceBook Followers with another 1070+ Facebook Friends
100+ Pinterest Followers
These goals I wrote down and accomplished! The power of planning, strategizing, and speaking it into existence!

I was featured in Barristourista (mentioned in end of year review but not my last blogiversary post)

That checks off two countries more on my 30 countries by age 30 travel list.

I earned $5000 in social media management, however, by the end of 2017, I will not be including that in my income reports as they will become separate from the blog, due to creating an agency.

I look forward to pitching more! My goal is to get at least one guest sponsored post.

I look forward to updating you in December 2017 along with my annual blog income report.

I am looking ahead to the fifth anniversary and many more anniversaries to come!

Most importantly, thank you for reading! Whether you have been here since year one or before year two, I hope to have still your support years to come!
