Blogging Goals to Reach by the end of December...

When I first started my blog I had no idea where it was going to take me.  In fact, I created my blog in February 2010 and then didn't return for several months.  It was a combination of forgetting, lack of focus, not having time and a mix of other random things going on in my life.  

I owe my current blogging success to my wonderful online friend JR from Frugality is Free.  She's the one that kicked me in the pants (via e-mail) and told me what I needed to do in order to get my blog rolling!  Now things are rolling in so fast that I'm afraid I won't be able to keep up!  Without her help, support and motivation I wouldn't be where I am today!


I know I'm not perfect and neither is my blog but I hope that people enjoy what I have to share.  I want my readers to like what they read and benefit from it as well.  I don't share my frugal deals and freebies to brag - I share them so that others can reap the benefits as well.

I know age is only a number and the number on the scale doesn't matter as long as you feel good about yourself - HOWEVER, there are some "magic numbers" that I have in mind for Being Frugal and Making it Work by the end of 2011.

I'm super excited about yesterday's stats (12/1): 
(each day is better than the day before)

 This is the first time EVER that I've gotten more than 1,000 page views two days in a row!

I'd love to reach 2000 GFC followers! I'm currently at 1656.

I'd also love to have 1000 Fabulous Facebook followers, I currently have 929! 

I've reached and passed my original goal of 1000 Terrific Twitter followers!  I'm currently at 1197 - Whoo hoo!

In addition, I have a Google PR of 3, a web grade of 93% and a blog grade of 96% which I thought was nearly impossible for me to reach, but I made it! I can't believe I actually made it!

I'm so close to reaching those numbers that I can almost grab hold and pull them in!

I'm going to keep on having fun and doing what I do.  Hoping that those who stop by my blog enjoy what they see and it keeps them coming back! 

Do you have any blogging goals set for yourself?

You are always so sweet Bridget! Thank you for the thank you, it has always...and always be a pleasure to help you. I just gave you the kick, you did the rest all by yourself.

I have reached a lot of my blogging goals for this year, but there is one that I did not get to monthly pageviews...I'm 4000 short, and I just don't think I'll make it. Still, I doubled my monthly pageviews in a year, so I am thrilled.

It makes me wonder what will happen, when we sit around and compare next year:)

Good luck on reaching all of your blogging goals Bridget!
