Gah I have some many words I want to say and so many topics to share with you all. *deep breath* Okay, so here's what's going on...

Gah I have some many words I want to say and so many topics to share with you all.

*deep breath*

Okay, so here's what's going on. IT'S ALREADY MARCH DUDES. Like what? If you remember from the beginning of February, I wrote about February Blog Goals and February's Theme. Rather unintentionally, these two intertwined throughout the month and kind of brought forth March's theme.

These were February's goals (These aren't the actual ones that are on the blog- I forgot that I had made two sets of goals and then ended up working towards the ones I had actually written down):

1. Connect with 5 other bloggers (yep, I'm pretty sure I did, though I wasn't really keeping track. Some I did connect with are Olivia, Rachel, and Abbiee)
2. Join 5 Link ups (Yes, I did the #Monthlygold link up as well as the Ruffles and Rainboots link up)
3. Have 3 Guest Writers on the blog (I'm not sure if I actually got three, but I have definitely reached out to fellow bloggers to guest post- watch out for more collabs!)
4. Get 25 followers on GFG (Well... This one I didn't really reach, but it's not technically my fault. GFC wasn't working with my blog and has been having tech difficulties. I'll save this one for March.)
5. Get 25 follower on Pinterest (Yep!!)
6. Get 100 followers on Instagram (Yep!!)
7. Get 150 Followers on Twitter (Yep!!)
*insert happy dance for keeping goals*

Frankly, I wasn't sure if I would be able to reach my goals, especially with my social media accounts, but I did. One word made it all possible for me to start to gain a following online:

CONNECT.

I'm so serious. I got most of my Instagram followers by commenting on fellow bloggers' accounts and messaging them with encouragement. I'm got most of my Pinterest follower by posting in a blogging group board that I was hoping to connect with more bloggers on Pinterest. I got most of my Twitter followers from tweeting people with encouragement and shouting out epic people. Chances are, people will retweet you if you say nice things about them- easy way to get your Twitter out there.

CONNECT CONNECT CONNECT CONNECT.

That's why this month's theme is all about connections- connecting with fellow bloggers, connect with my readers, connecting with clients, connecting with brands, CONNECT PEOPLE. Expect to see a lot more interaction since I really want to connect with all you beautiful people!!

Anyway, here are March's blog goals. (Please understand- followers are not everything to me. They are simply a means of sharing my content and connecting online):
1. 250 Followers on Twitter
2. 50 Followers on Pinterest
3. 200 Followers on Instagram
4. 6 Link ups
5. 3 Guest posts (if you're interested in guest posting, email me at contact@theteentrepreneur.com)
6. 4 Posts in blogging group boards
7. Join 3 Blogging boards on Pinterest
8. 25 Followers on bloglovin' (does anyone actually use this?! It's worth a shot, I guess!!)

Anyway, I'd love to know how you connect with others online! Also, what are your goals for march? I can't wait for this uber fun month.

  2. I actually really love love love Bloglovin'. Since Blogger doesn't have a good dashboard app, Bloglovin' lets me subscribe to + read all my favorite blogs while I'm at school.

  9. Hi! I love your blog, you are so driven, it's beautiful to see!
    I noticed a tiny thing though, and normally and wouldn't point at a detail, BUT since you like French: it's "entrepreneur" not -ueur". And for the prononciation, it's more "uh" sound.
    Anyway, you can give a look at my blog about France & French, and even guest blog about something that you love about it!
    Have a beautiful day!
