And then just yesterday I shared with you guys why I’m actually kind of happy that my page views went down! Ready to keep on pushing!
Hi guys! One more day til Friday!! Woohoo! On the blog today I’m talking about something totally weird. I’m telling you why I’m actually happy that my page views dropped. I know!!! Crazy, right?? But yes, it was exactly the slap in the face that I needed to motivate me to work harder! Some people think that having a blog is super simple. But it’s not! It’s hard work and it takes so much dedication to keep pushing forward! So check out the post if you have a chance (link’s in my bio ??) and if you’ve ever experienced a drop in pageviews, what have you done to help turn that around?! ???
So that’s this past week in a nutshell! Lots to do, lots going on and the hubby and I will be in California at the end of next week so I’m peeing in my pants from excitement! Any food recommendations? Cool drink spots? Let me know please please please!
Okay, have a FABULOUS weekend!
