This monthly blog review will talk about what happened this month and how some recent social media changes have affected the blog. March was a slow month. Following my significant return in February, I thought that my followers would be more engaged with the blog, but they weren’t.
It’s always important to review your monthly goals, accomplishments, and what you can do next month. This month, my goal was to have content prewritten and scheduled at least a month in advance, make my first workbook sale, and focus on Pinterest for the advertising workbook. This monthly blog review will share what worked and didn’t work this month and what I hope to accomplish in April.
Before I go over the significant wins in this monthly blog review, let’s go over the stats.

Follow Me On Pinterest
This month I sold nothing. I need to change my marketing tactics and try something new. I am going to try advertising on Facebook and Instagram to see if that would help. I am also going to incorporate video.

Though I did not make a workbook sale like I wanted to, I did trend a few times on Instagram, which boosted my online presence a lot. In addition, I used Instagram reels to share tips and to share fun ways to practice self-love. At first, I was not too confident If I’d generate any traffic or increase my online visibility with Instagram Reels. However, now I’ve realized their benefits and how they’ll help me in the future.
Also, I realized that Instagram was pushing my video content and not my photos, which leads me to believe that this will be part of that new rumored algorithm. Therefore, I took deleted anyone who was inactive or seemed like a bot. This increased my engagement rate drastically and has helped my Instagram a lot.
I also made lots of new friends and increased my domain authority by one.

March Blogging Themes
Next month, I plan to focus on Spirituality. Spirituality is one of the most underrated self-care dimensions. I chose this theme because of Easter. With such a spiritual and religious holiday coming up, I wanted to showcase more relevant and timely articles.
My March Goals
- Make at least one sale
- Start planning for my small biz
- Increase domain authority by 2
