We are so overwhelmed with gratitude for YOU our readers. The Frugal Find is growing at rate we had never dreamed of. We’re meeting and surpassing goals right and left. This means some really fun celebrations and giveaways are on the horizon!
Up through 2010, we have pretty much been running this blog by the seat of our pants – not a lot of planning, things fell through the cracks, and no real goals or game plan to speak of. I’ve never really been a goal-setter myself, but we decided now would be a good time to start setting some. It would give us something to work towards, and some sense of direction. Along with the goals, we’ve tried to start scheduling posts in advance and actually post what we say we will… still working on that! The goals we set were only for 6 months out – since this was our first time, we tried to challenge ourselves a bit, but make the goals attainable. Predicting anything 1 year out seemed crazy, so we went with 6 months.
Here are just a few of the statistical goals we set for this year (written Jan 2011) and where we’re at so far:
Goal #1: Get a sponsorship to BlogHer 2011
DONE! A big THANK YOU to my BlogHer 2011 sponsor Juice In The City! You’ll be hearing more about that in the near future!
Goal #2: 500,000 pageviews per month by June 30, 2011
In November and December, we started to get close to 400,000 pageviews per month, well it looks like we’ll either hit it this month (March 2011) or we’ll be just a few thousand short. What an amazing journey this has been, THANKS GUYS!
Goal #3: 7,000 Facebook fans by June 30,2011
Since making that goal, we’ve averaged about 500 “Likes” per month (currently at 5,800. If we keep that up, we’ll reach our goal.
Goal #4: 3,500 Twitter followers by June 30, 2011
Started at 2,237, currently at 2,894. Pretty much right on track to hit our goal.
