Hello April!

How. Just HOW are we in April please? This has been the busiest month EVER for me and I’ve loved it. At the time it felt super quick, but looking back, this has actually been a REALLY long month.

It started as it meant to go on, with my fabulous birthday day out with Joe and this month I have been a VERY lucky lady. I don’t think I’ve ever done so much with so many different people around my birthday. Queue the warm fuzzies. I seriously have the BEST people around.

So what have I got planned for this month? Absolutely nothing so far. Actually thats a bit of a lie, but compared to last month, I’m gonna be seriously well rested. I’ve got another gig this month to see Mallory Knox in Camden with Connor which I am VERY excited about because Connor and Camden. Although I’m hoping my train journey home will be more pleasant than last time. And then I’m taking a running jump out of my Comfort Zone and photographing two tiny local gigs, which I’m both super excited and super nervous about. Mainly because I could be absolutely crap, but I’ll never know until I get there. But, as a bonus, a couple of weeks after agreeing to do the first one, Connor and Amber are announced as one of the acts. So there will at least be some friendly faces.

And since it’s the start of a new month, let’s have a look at my goals. I had SO much fun blogging this month and I really feel like I’m improving which makes me feel SO DAMN GOOD. Photography has always been my one true love and I feel like every month I’m stepping it up, and since I’ve been adding more props and I’ve upgraded my lens. Lets just have a comparison shall we?

And they say goals are all about numbers. Not that taking in interest in your numbers makes you a bad blogger or a bad person. At all. People that say that really need to just get a grip. And I know I mentioned this last month but I’ve been seeing more and more of it recently. I read Maria.J’s post on this subject earlier and it explained how I feel about it better than I ever could, give it a read!

So let’s talk… *whispers*…numbers.

My goals this month were:

Blog Followers: 350

Twitter Followers: 1000

Instagram Followers: 500

And let’s have a look at where I got to:

Blog Followers: 358

Twitter Followers: 1330 (?!)

Instagram Followers: 594

So now where should we aim for by the end of April?

Blog Followers: 400

Twitter Followers: 1500

Instagram Followers: 650

This has now been the longest I’ve gone without taking a break from blogging or even missing a post and I’m honestly having the BEST time. Now I’m so far into it, I can’t see myself stopping and I kinda just feel like my hard work is paying off. Queue more warm fuzzies.

    Wow congrats on the improvement on your photography, I see a drastic difference! Hope you meet all your goals for the month! It’s funny, alot of people complain that Insta is harder to gain followers versus Twitter, I feel opposite lol. I’ve gained Insta followers like crazy, but my Twitter is where I struggle? I don’t get it lol.

      Thank you! I’ve found insta harder than twitter up until the last couple of months and now I’m suddenly finding it a lot easier, I don’t get it either haha! x

I love your photogrpahy improvement, too; I’d love to be as good as you are, even in the first photo!

      Girl thank you so much! You’d be surprised, while I love my camera, a lot of it can be done with even a phone camera, all you need is a bit of practice! xx

    I always find that the more I blog the more I want to blog and have fun doing it! I think sometimes taking a break and missing posts just makes you feel like there’s so much pressure on a return post and then it kind of puts you off posting. It sounds like you’ve had a fab month tho and I hope the photography gigs go well!
