The Resolute Beauty Blogger - August Updates


Welcome to the August updates of the beauty blogger resolution series called the Resolute Beauty Blogger.  

Today I will be giving updates on the goals I set for myself back in January.

1. Increase my Twitter and Bloglovin followers by 20 per month. 
August Update: I gained 74 Twitter followers and 22 Bloglovin followers. 

2. Keep track of my blog's monthly stats.
August Update: I kept track of my monthly blog stats using the table that I discussed in my January post.

3. Participate in 1 tag per month.  
August Update: I did not do any tags in August.

4. Do not do more than 3 hours of blogging related "stuff" per weeknight. 
August Update: I'm not doing great at this.  I've fallen back in the habit of staying up late reading blogs or blogging articles. (Also binge watching Scandal...good grief what a great show!  Anyone else watch??)

5. Come up with a weekly or monthly series for my blog. 
August Update: I've been continuing my "Frugal Fridays" series.

6. Do a tutorial, Face of the Day post, or a "tips" type post once a month.  
August Update: I did a review and tutorial using the Lorac Pro Palette 2

7. Don't be so self-conscious posting full face pictures of myself.
August Update: I'm more comfortable posting full face photos and posted some on my Lorac review post.

8. Make my blog look more personal.  Add a pretty background, a cool header,  etc.  
August Update: No progress on this but I did finally order "real" (not homemade by me) business cards.  I also added a Features/Brand Collaborations page on my blog.

Overall I feel like my blog has been steadily growing month to month.  I've been able to collaborate with many more brands and hope to continue to do so.  Also, I'm thrilled to say that I'm officially a Murad Brand Ambassador!

p.s.  My blog anniversary is coming up so stay tuned for a fun giveaway in a couple of weeks!
