Social media is a must for growing a blog. It is a wonderful way to connect with readers on and grow your blog reach. I can tell you without Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest The Triplet Farm would be nothing. I probably would have given up on blogging a long time ago if I didn’t have these outlets to promote my blog. They, specifically Facebook and Pinterest, are my number one source of monthly page views.
Writing is the easy part for me. It’s the getting it out there and sharing with the world that is difficult and often time-consuming. And talk about frustrating. When you’re not seeing the increase in numbers that you so want, it’s easy to feel defeated. It wasn’t until the last 3 months that my social media following started taking off. Before that, dudsville.
As I mentioned, I have been killing it on social media lately. In my spare time today I’ve been doin’ a little figurin’ as my dad would say. In the last 9 weeks, I have grown my social media following by roughly 34%. Amazing in my books. So I’ve set a goal to increase my followers by 50% by the end of the year!
Current followers // 1,625
December 31st goal // 2,400
Current followers // 2,212
December 31st goal // 3,400
Current followers // 1,153
December 31st goal // 1,700
Current followers // 1,552
December 31st goal // 2,300
Is this goal unreachable? Maybe. I’m willing to work hard to get those numbers up, though. I have started keeping track of my social media shares. I’ve got into the habit of posting (or scheduling posts) at certain times each day. Once I got into a routine, sharing posts started becoming more fun for me and my following grew and grew and grew. I’m excited to see what the end of the year will bring for The Triplet Farm’s social media presence.
