Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

I must admit that I...

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

Blog Traffic | April 2017

Posted on

Now we nearing the half way point of the year, things can only look better and bright; right? Here how I achieved my 21,000 page views in April.

April blog traffic

My April blog traffic was another rocket explosion. If I thought March was an amazing result – oh boy was I wrong.

My top 5 most popular posts from April:

I decided with my 5 popular post this month to not based it on viewing figure. But how much each posts got on engagement. Two of my post this month went semi-viral which was exciting.  When I wrote about Blogosphere magazine the team behind it shared it on their social media platforms; thus giving me exposure I otherwise would never have gotten.

And my Stumbleupon post – well you guys went crazy for it! It seems to me that so many of you have been stuck on stumbleupon and all you need was someone to tell how it can bring you amazing amount of traffic. I’m glad to have helped you all out.

For a while if I’m honest, my April blog traffic kind of just hover above the ground and not really moving anywhere. Especially around Easter. I wasn’t sure throughout the month whether I would see an increase – but overall I did and it was another splendid surprise.

How did people find my Blog?

My top 3 results came largely from Stumbleupon, Twitter and Organic Searches:

Stumbleupon (SU):

SU was another fantastic and brilliant result. This month I gave it my full attention and it has paid off. I think this what I needed to stop my traffic from crashing.

When I wrote my SU post, a lot of traffic did organically come from the platform. I didn’t take a screenshot but I saw on Google Analytic that at one time 25 people was on my site all on that one post and all hailing from SU. How amazing is that

If you have read my SU post, then read it today.

Twitter:

Another month of unexpected and pleasant surprise from Twitter. I think it did help two of my blog post went semi viral and went (what only I can describe it as) mental on twitter. I found people were retweeting my blog links tweets, my mentions were filled of people tweeting both my old and new blog posts. This was amazing and I didn’t expect such lovely attention.  One thing I did do was post more on twitter and use the appropriate hashtags.  It well worth turning your attention to Twitter.

Organic searches:

My organic searches were another big success throughout April. I’m super happy about this as I gave it my attention. I did this by writing high keywords post, what I mean by this is I wrote post that I know will do well in Google. It all comes down to me using my Google keyword tool into my SEO strategy and using high search term within a blog post.

If that sound confusing, don’t worry as I’ve written a tutorial on how to use Google keyword tool for your blog.

Also it might be helpful to read my post on how to make your blog more SEO friendly.

What didn’t work in March:

  • Pinterest. It didn’t crash and burn or gave me a big wave of traffic. It just kind of hover off the ground not moving anywhere. Not sure what happen and I will need to in May look into it.
  • Blog links parties. I actually cut down on the amount of blog link parties I participated in. It hasn’t made a dent in my traffic. However, I still got traffic – just not a huge amount so I’m still undecided whether to keep going with it.

And that was my April blog traffic report. It was a bloody brilliant month and a big thank you so much for supporting me. It means the universe to me that my blog is doing so well and I couldn’t have done it with you – Thank you so much everyone.

    I read your articles there are amazing, and inspiring. I know how you feel. I am a shy person too. I started my blog two weeks ago. My blog is about how I used to bullied allike my life. I am disabled I don’t walk straight like most people. I started my blog because it was time to express my feelings, how fashion save and change my life. We should connect one day.

    congrats. I never have any real idea of how good or bad my numbers are, but I’d be pretty excited to get over 4000 users consistently

    I joined stumbleupon a while ago but I never really knew how to use it. Now that I can see how much benefits it has, I’ll check it out!

    I’m wondering if you have any advice for me. I was getting a bunch of traffic from SU every day. Then suddenly nothing, nil, zero. It was pretty heartbreaking. I always stumble others and I was adding other pages and not sharing only mine. I would love to get that traffic source back but I’m not sure how.

    Amazing stats, Anna. Congrats. I haven’t checked but I know mine will be up for this month as I’ve been participating in the A to Z and have had some great responses. I need to do more with my social media so will refer to this post again.
