Time for another monthly blog review, and I’m excited about this one. Since it’s the end of November, does that mean it’s time to start putting up the Christmas tree and bringing out the holiday jams? Thanksgiving was excellent, and I love to practice gratitude, but I always look forward to the holiday season.
In this monthly blog review, I will talk about the launch of my newest ebook and my first sale on it, and the techniques I used to increase my social media presence.
November Monthly Blog Review
November was a great month on the blog. My overall social media presence increased, more people subscribed to my email list, and I made my first sale on my newest workbook. Not much changed in terms of blog views and comments, but I can say that I am optimistic that it will change with December coming up.
- Sales Revenue:
- Etsy: $70
- Shop: $5
- Pageviews: 3K
- Number of Email Subscribers: 90
- FB Followers: 260
- FB Likes: 238
- IG Followers: 912
- Pinterest Views: 80K
- Pinterest Followers: 831
This month, I increased the frequency of my posts due to the demand for gift guides and holiday content. I successfully published my first set throughout the month and even made a few affiliate sales through my guides.

I didn’t make as much as I’d hope this month on my Etsy, plus I got a refund, which sucked. I don’t know if it’s because I’m a newer shop, but I struggled with Etsy sales and production. On the upside, I did make my first sale for my newest workbook, The Depression Management Workbook.
I had plenty of major wins this month, despite the sales setback on Etsy. For starters, I launched a new workbook and have already made a sale on it. The Depression Management Workbook is a guide for coping with depression and anxiety and learning how to better manage their mental health symptoms.
I also increased my social media presence, particularly on Instagram. I’ve been dabbling in IGTV through my new wellness series and using Instagram reels more to promote and educate the community. Again, it worked out in my favor.
I’ve also increased my engagement and interacting with people who show up on the least interacted with a section of my followers’ area. Finally, I’ve been using all the latest features in positing and scheduling content and ensuring I stay more relevant in the health and wellness niche.
December Blogging Theme
In December, I am participating in blogmas. For those unfamiliar with it where you post every day from December 1st to December 25th. I’ve got tons of holiday gift guides, posts, and content planned for the entire month until Christmas. I’ve also added in some health and wellness winter posts.
I cannot wait for you guys to see what I have planned!
