7 Tips to Grow Your Blog on a Part Time Schedule + Blogging Goal Update

I am now 6 months into this blogging journey and I’m loving it! I am slowly but surely growing my blog and making it something worthwhile for readers. As I learn more about blogging, the more I enjoy it! And I hope you enjoy seeing the changes and improvements I am trying to make. Of course I’d appreciate any feedback that you might have, just leave me a comment below!

Well, 3 months ago, I set a goal for myself. I wanted to get 50 email subscribers in the next 6 months .

To be honest, it felt really lofty at the time. I wasn’t exactly feeling confident that I’d reach it.

But here I am, only 3 months later…


I am beyond thrilled about this. I’ve surpassed my goal with flying colors. And it’s a darn good feeling!

What makes me feel even more special is this:

In actuality, there have been 134 people that have signed up to receive my posts via email! The numbers are different because half of those people didn’t follow through and activate their subscription. So they aren’t receiving my posts…

But still, another 67 people at least began the subscription process. And that is what makes me feel special. Hopefully they will eventually complete the process by confirming their subscription!

And that, people, is what we call progress ! 🙂

If you are wondering how I made this slow, but steady progress, I happened to write a guest post about it. This was after I had been blogging for about 4 months and had just joined the International Bloggers Association.

On the IBA’s blog, I wrote a guest post with 7 Tips to Grow Your Blog on a Part Time Schedule. They aren’t for someone expecting magical, overnight success though. It’s more for the “slow and steady wins the race” kind of people. 🙂

Since then, I have become a board member of the IBA. I am responsible for posting the Member Interviews to their blog. If you are a blogger, I highly suggest you consider applying to be a part of this group.

But for now, head on over and check out my guest post with 7 Tips to Grow Your Blog on a Part Time Schedule by clicking the image below.

Thank you so much for continuing to read this blog and sticking with me as I learn the ropes. I appreciate every share, like, and comment I get. So please keep them coming! And like I said before, feel free to give me any feedback on what you’d like to see from my blog.

And that’s just a little bit from Me TODAY!

Sarah, <br /><br />I'm so glad I came across this post! I had no idea you were promoting my book on Amazon, that's SO COOL! Thank you! I'm honored. It means so much to me. I think it's really smart that you're calling attention to your post over at the IBA– way to give it new life! I noticed a new comment on it recently, probably because of this post. <br /><br />

Sarah @ Me Plus 3... TODAY!

Of course, Brittany! I finished your book last week, and it was great! I'm learning from you book and your blog that I should start to re-think my strategy. Thank you for sharing such great blogging advice!
