Last Week’s Goals
Goal #1 – Research products for possible review - I was able to look up a few sites and even submitted my info to one but it wasn’t anywhere near the amount of time I wanted to invest. This is something that will need further research.
Goal #2 – Comment on 20 blogs - Done.
Goal #3 – Increase Facebook likes to 85 – My Facebook page made it up to 83 likes. This is a little disappointing since it was so close to hitting the 85 mark. At the same time it’s good to see the amount of Facebook likes get up to 83.
Goal #4 – Write a minimum of 4 posts - Oh no, this is only post number 3 of the week. There is no one to blame other than myself for this so I’m going to have to make sure I succeed this coming week.
Goal #5 – Create a Blogs I Follow page – This was created and added earlier today so if you’re looking for some other blogs to start reading be sure to check out my list.
This Week’s Goals
Goal #1 – Look into product reviews in further detail - I didn’t get to where I wanted with this last week. It is still something I want to do and the only way to get it done it to start reading more about it and contacting some companies.
Goal #2 – Comment on 20 blogs - Again, I feel this is important for creating more traffic to my site. Plus, I really do enjoy reading other blogs.
Goal #3 – Write second book review post - I’m almost done with another finance related book so I’m excited to share with you what it’s about.
Goal #4 – Write a minimum of 4 posts - I slacked off this last week so this is a priority again this week.
Goal #5 – Include a picture in at least 1 post - Pictures should help improve the readability of my posts and just give it an overall better look. I know it probably doesn’t take long but it’s just not something I have made time to include yet.
If you read my post on June 12th, you’ll know that part of the challenge is to reduce the Alexa ranking to less than 200,000 in six months. When starting this challenge, the Money Aches ranking was at 402,169. Last week it was 393,786 and it is down further this week to 356,247. Each week I’ll post the latest number and hope to reach my goal by Dec. 12th, 2013.
