Linking up with Deena today for her Monthly numbers post!
Here's my August in Numbers...
With the exception of two weekends, it was a relatively quiet month for me! Basically I soaked up as much summer as I could! Lazy days in the sun! I read a few books, went to one kick-ass Kenny concert, celebrated Happy Heart Day, had a mini family reunion and spent lots of fun days with friends! And again...I ate out A LOT...like 20 meals out!!
A few more notables:
3 days spent with cousins! (I'm so sad I never blogged this!)
2 books read...and one that I gave up on! Loved them both. I don't know why but I bawled at the end of each of them!! That is a sign of a great book!! Highly recommend both!! The Nightingale took me a while but I read An Invisible Thread over two days! The Nightingale was my first Kristin Hannah book but I will definitely be reading more by her. An Invisible Thread was an engaging memoir! LOVED!! I started Me Before You at the very end of August and finished it a few days later, so 'm saving that one for September numbers!
1 Alive after Five attended. Was happy to finally make one of these this summer! I mentioned here that I wanted to go to more. But it actually worked out that I had previous plans on all the other dates! I had a great time and even got myself a t-shirt!
August was a big month on the blog and across my social media!
I posted to the blog 18 times in August
The blog hit 50K views(and then some)! My 100th post of 2015 was published in August and my 250th post on the blog overall.
The most viewed post on the blog in August: Five on Friday! 8/28/2015
I also reached 200 followers on instagram in August!
And posted 47 pics (and blog reminders)!!
Thanks to my friend Military Wife and Pug Life, I added a bunch of members to the blog via Blogger/Google Plus!! Thanks girl!! I have to start using and understanding Google Plus more!! If I'm honest that's the social media outlet I am least familiar with, but it's also the most up-and-coming...so I have to get on that!!!
The Facebook Page hasn't gained many followers but it's had a high post reach and lots of clicks! And was actually the highest traffic source for the blog!! Feel free to share the page with friends!! :)
