This was meant to be posted the Friday before this month began, but as many of you know I headed instead to Montana for my Great-Grandma's funeral. On the way there I was hit with the news that my brother had been in a major car accident. He is stable now and home again minus his spleen and with some fancy new hardware in his arm. Besides all the insanity going on in the world this week there was grief and stress far too close to home. Now we move forward... here are my June goals!
The goal this month for the blog is again to post consistently at 8 am MST Mon-Fri. In addition, I will be releasing my first newsletter on June 15 for blog members only. This month I also want to continue my rebrand. "Montana" Bear Paw blog made sense in the beginning when I was focusing my content around my grandparents' business in Montana. Now it doesn't make as much sense, especially since my home base is currently in Wyoming. Therefore, I'm making June's theme "Wandering Wyoming" and I will be changing the names on our social media accounts to lilmissbearpaw Blog.
My goals for Facebook this month, are to get on a consistent posting schedule, improve the quality of my Friday live streams, and reach 100 followers. I will be adding the link to my YouTube channel here as well to hopefully drive traffic to that content.
My goals for Instagram start with re-engaging my audience there. I think this begins with getting on a consistent posting schedule but I think I also need to work on my story game which has been seriously lacking up to this point. I may also start doing an Instagram live stream directly following my Facebook live stream depending on how my ever-evolving work schedule pans out. I want to reach 100 followers this month.
YouTube at this point is going to be a beast I'm shocked to see grow. I plan to continue making content at the rate of 1-2 videos per week. In all honesty, the only video I really liked last month was Rodeo Dreaming. I learned a lot filming and editing the other videos but I didn't feel like the quality or tone that I'm going for is quite there yet. I hope to reach 50 subscribers this month.
What changes do you think I should make to improve my platform? What changes are you most looking forward to? If you're a blogger, what is one of your goals for June?
