Secret Subject Swap~Take 2, August 2013

Welcome to Take Two of August’s Secret Subject Swap.  I love this soo much, I forgot to post it on time!  Probably not the nest time to see if Karen needs more bloggers for September ;)

This week, 13 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.  

Secret Subject Swap

My Secret Subject was made by IBD, Daddy and Me!

What is one thing that you hope your blog accomplishes this next year?

Next year, like 2014?  I guess that I still even have a blog.

As for 2013 I have a few short-term goals.

1}  Get 1,000 Facebook FanPage Likers.  I am struggling so much here!  I had 987 and now, I'm down to 981.  Not sure what happened.  I am trying to be more engaging, but apparently the more I post there, the less people like me?  Also, it's hard for me because I don't really understand the "reach" and "talking about" of it all.

2}  Have my posts be more fulfilling to me.  I just resigned from co-hostessing a hop because I felt me content was really bad and didn't want to bring the hop down.  So, with taking that away from my blogging life, I hope that I will be able to focus more on my content.

3}  Make more than $50.00 per month for the rest of the year.  So far this year, I have only topped off at $65.00 one month, but that was because the month before I did "pay out" (average $40.00 per month YTD).  I do not expect to make a whole ton of money on my little blog, but more than an average of $40.00 would be nice.  Especially with Passionfruit starting to charge.  I could really use some more sponsors {which leads me to #3}...

4}  Be more supportive of those that sponsor me.  I need to be more active with them on Twitter and Facebook.  I think HootSuite is about to reenter my world.  Speaking of sponsoring me...check out me ad page and use the promo code THANKYOU to get 75% off any ad purchase in August.  Unlimited purchasing at such a great deal.  For the Hubs you only pay $3.75 and the Big One is only $2.50 for a whole month!

5}  One of my blogging goals for 2013 was to re-organize my blog and I have.  Each day has a correlating topic now.  Every once and again a different post will sneak in there, but when I write them, this is the schedule I will follow.  I am really excited about the giveaways on Fridays!  August and September are filled up, but if you want me to host a giveaway, please drop me a line {dawnsdisaster @}.

Now that you sponsored me, check out these other Secret Swappers!
