Happy October 1st! September has been the fastest month this year for me. It seems like so much has happened, but so little has! In honor of a new month, I wanted to do a monthly round-up, sharing things that has happened in September 2020. This is also a way where I can look back onto the progression of The Cozy Corner Blog and my other media outlets.
Launching my blog!
Yes! The first part of my monthly round-up is about my blog. This is the FIRST month of launching The Cozy Corner Blog! I launched halfway through the month on September 18th. Launching a blog has been a great learning experience and has taken a lot of time. Since the launch, I have posted every single day on my blog. I had planned ahead of time to have blog posts, photos, and graphics ready for this reason. I just never imagined it to be so hard.
Eventually, I got into a pattern where I was able to be effective in my work in planning, posting, and promoting my blog posts, but even then, it took a lot out of me. I am also a full time student, running a Youtube channel and an Instagram page, so time management was KEY for this month. Overall however, I have loved blogging and wouldn’t have changed anything that I’ve done this past month. The blogging community has also been so welcoming, helpful, and nice and I am so honored to officially be a part of it.
My Blog Statistics
Obviously I have only been blogging for about 2 weeks now, but I have posted every single day so I wanted to share some of my blogging statistics for my first two weeks. I am using Google Analytics for this. Since I am still new to Google Analytics, I am going to share them from the last 7 days.
First we are going to start off with the overall analytics. As you can tell from the screenshot below, the users, sessions, and session duration has increase. However, the bounce rate has decreased, which is something that I need to continue to work on! For the past 7 days, this is something I am happy with and know what to work on for next month.
Next is the traffic source analytics from the past 7 days. As expected, most of the traffic comes from social media (mainly Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter). I have found that Pinterest and Twitter are the social medias that drive the most traffic to my blog. This means I will definitely be focusing on promoting my posts on there for October, curating more content.
Finally we are going to look at my individual post statistics. Now let’s be honest, the only post that did really was my IOS 14 Customization Tutorial. This made me really happy and it made me realize how incredibly important Pinterst is. I post a pin on Pinterset and so far it has generated 23.1k views, 175 pins, and 450+ link clicks!! Seeing my pin blow up on Pinterest and drive so much traffic to that one post, has caused me to be even more in-tune with Pinterest trends and designing great graphics.
Instagram Feed: Infinitebeauty7
In the month of September, I posted 15 new photos on Instagram. Since I am in college, it is sometimes hard to find the time to do photoshoots. So, I tend to spread out my content so I don’t run out of things to post halfway through the month. My posts fluctuated around 70-100 likes, and I have gotten more interactions overall. I also posted my very first Instagram reel, baking Banana Nut Muffins! It got over 330 views and people seemed to love it! This is something I will be continuing to do even more in the month of October.
Now we are going to talk about my Youtube channel for my monthly round-up! I have been going back and forth with being motivated to make videos. But I have a lot of ideas on how I want to change my Youtube channel to be the best it can be! Throughout the month of September, I posted a total of 5 videos. This is typical for my channel because I post every single Saturday.
Pinterest Analytics! Infinite_Beauty / TheCozyCornerBlog
For the last portion of the Monthly Round-Up, we are going to talk about my Pinterest analytics! As you can see in the header above, I have 2 different Pinterest accounts. Infinite_Beauty is the one that I have had for years and is more established. I just created The Cozy Corner Blog Pinterest account so I can focus that on my blog!
For Infinite_Beauty, my analytics have grown. I have gained about 7 new followers (typical for me) and am continuing to grow with monthly viewers.
For The Cozy Corner Bog which I just started a week ago, I have around 4.5k monthly viewers and have gained 10 followers. This is much better than I could have expected and I am excited to continue to grow it!
So that is all I have for you today for my Monthly Round-Up for September 2020! I hope you all enjoyed getting to see the “behind the scenes” of my social media accounts and blog and looking into my analytics. I hope you guys have had a great September and are ready for a new month! Let me know your October month goals below!!
