I have been an absolutely rubbish blogger recently. I’ve been neglecting my social media, I’ve been posting very sporadically, and to be honest I just haven’t been in the mood for any of it. I thought it would make sense to do a little update on where I’ve been and what’s been going on before I just continue writing content, so hi, here I am.
I went to Canada
The main reason for my general absence this month was my Canada trip. I wrote some posts whilst I was away but I haven’t really been very active on the blog. That said, Canada was amazing and I can’t wait to share some photos/travel-y posts with you aside from the ones I shared over on Instagram. We stayed in Montréal for 5 days and then Toronto for 9, and it’s one of the best trips I’ve had in a while.
I got a job
Guys I got a bloody job! I found out whilst I was in Canada that I’d got the job and I was so excited. I started this week and I’m so happy to finally be working. I’m working as a content writer for a travel website and it’s definitely been a challenging few days. My only real content writing experience is this blog, and sitting in an office and trying to write is a whole different thing! I’m starting to get the hang of it though.
I went a bit viral on Pinterest
I mean, viral is a massive overstatement here. However, I multiplied my regular views by ten in the month of July and I couldn’t be more excited about it. My bounce rate is now awful and my DA hasn’t changed, but hopefully these are things that will improve again with time. It’s also just nice to get recognition for something you’ve worked on. I’ll probably do a post on this at some point, but for now I’m just going to feel pretty happy with myself.
I Reached my Bloglovin’ and Instagram goals
I reached 600 followers on Bloglovin’ and I’ve finally hit 500 followers on Instagram. I’ve been struggling massively with both networks recently so it’s nice to hit a milestone. Bloglovin’ has definitely been a slow grower, but daily promotion has helped so much. I haven’t really been doing anything different on Instagram, but the following is nice.
I think that’s about it for this little update post. It’s so nice to sit down and write again without any pressure. Let me know what you’ve been up to recently as I’m definitely out of the loop!
