Month 2 Blog Growth Update: 1.6k Pinterest Followers Later

Hi there!

Welcome to my series, Mom to Mompreneur Blog Growth Update! Wow! that was a mouthful.


For those of you who are new, my name is Elna Cain and I’m a freelance writer and a mama to twin toddlers.

I started TwinsMommy back in March as a way to blog some more – because I just love blogging ? – and engaging with a new audience.

It wasn’t until about a few weeks later – in April – that I really wanted to grow this blog.

I wanted to start a new blog and grow traffic, readers and income and share my story because I know a lot of you are struggling growing your blog too!

I also want to help mamas go from being a mom to being a mompreneur.

Blogging just for the sake of blogging isn’t going to earn you income. Turning your blog into a biz and then creating products, well that’s where all the money is. And I’m chronicling that journey with you!

To catch up with how I’m growing my blog, check out my blog growth series:

If you’re interested in starting your own blog I have an easy step-by-step tutorial on how to start a blog using Bluehost!

1. On My Site

Since actively trying to grow my blog, I’ve been getting more visitors and pageviews every month.

Here are last months analytics:

four thousand page views

Not bad for a new blog that was only a month or two in. When I checked my analytics for this past month, I was expecting to double my pageviews, but that didn’t happen. Instead, I almost tripled my pageviews!


I was super happy to see my progress and that my bounce rate is decreasing ever so slightly. I’m also getting more return visitors (which is a great thing if you want to build a community or tribe of followers) and I’m consistently getting around 200 or more visitors a day.

Now, this might not seem like a lot for other bloggers, but let me tell you a little secret:

My other blog – which I’ve had for over a year and have been consistently publishing a post once a week – averages around 100-150 visitors a day.

After. A. Year. Of. Blogging.

I know, right?

So, to see my efforts pay off big time with this blog is such a pleasant surprise!

From my analytics I found out my three most popular posts:


My most popular post is on where to get free feminine styled stock photos. I sort of knew this post would get many shares since images are important for branding purposes. The other two are a mix of blogging tips and freelance tips.

Update: check out 14 more places to grab free stock photos here.

It seems that unique content and roundup posts are popular – because these posts have a lot of links to other people’s blogs – so I will continue to provide more list posts, roundup posts and unique posts like this one.

Let’s see if I accomplished my goals from last month:

  • Publish 2 posts of at least 1,000 words a week – Yes! I’m still keeping up with this content schedule AND creating content upgrades, AND writing newsletters every week. And I even wrote an epic 4,000 word list post (yikes!).
  • Create more roundup posts – Yes! I did do one collaborative roundup post!
  • Talk more about Twins Mommy on my other blog – I did write one post and mentioned this site.

Okay, so for this past month things are working out. I’ve noticed my blog content has shifted from more work-at-home type posts to more mompreneur type posts.

I want my blog to encompass both hemispheres.

The work-at-home mom or freelancer who is trying different ways to earn an income and the mompreneur-in-the-making. These moms are learning about email marketing, sales funnels, monetization strategies and working towards product creation.

But, I also want to have posts to help moms with productivity and raising kids or twins (like myself!).

I hope my blog isn’t lacking focus? What do you think? I know the posts with the most shares and comments are blogging/mompreneur related, but should I ONLY blog about that?

So, my goals for June are to:

  • Generate at least 25k pageviews
  • Bump up my visitors from 200+ a day to 300+ a day
  • Get ready to do some affiliate marketing 🙂

2. Pinterest Marketing

In two short months I went from 600 Pinterest followers to over 1.6k followers!


How’d I do that?

The simple answer is Tailwind and my pin images.

This automation tool has been the best investment for my blog. I can automate all my pins and have them sent out to group boards all day long.

And I think I’ve nailed down the whole brandable pin for this blog! Yay!

Within a month I went from 1k to 1.6k. That’s not bad!

I know having lots of followers doesn’t mean more traffic back to my blog. My average monthly viewers tells me how big of a reach my pins are generating.

Last month I had around 90,000. And this month?


It’s on the up and up so I’m happy.

Personally, my progress on Pinterest is a little slower than what I would like to see. I know many bloggers – by the time they hit the 3 month mark of their Pinterest strategy – they see huge leaps and bounds in terms of numbers of followers, repins and reach/traffic.

We will see what next month has in store for me!

Did I Meet My Goals?

Let’s see if I met or surpassed my Pinterest goals:

  • Gain 1500 followers – Yes! I have 1.6k
  • Generate 200,000 views – Fail! Only 123,000
  • Make more than one pin for popular posts – Fail! I’m not sure if I want to really do this. Creating images takes a bit of time for me and since I have several sites I create images for (plus my clients) I just don’t see that happening yet.

I’m still super happy with the progress I am making, though!

What have I done to keep growing my followers and presence on Pinterest?

  • Joined even more group boards. I was invited to a few, but mostly I asked to join.
  • I invited more people to join my group board. I have around 65 piners.
  • I increased my pinning strategy from 60-80 pins per day to 90-100 pins per day. I watched a webinar from Allison Lindstrom of Frugal on the Prairie and learned she pins 200 times a day! So, I’m going to strive for that!
  • Signed up for Rich Pins

And one more thing I did was create pins strictly for two of my highest converting content upgrades.


I created pages on my site and am sharing them on Pinterest. If another content upgrade becomes more popular, then I’ll make a pin just for that upgrade.

Here are my goals for next month:

  • Gain another 1k followers
  • Increase my pinning strategy to upwards of 200 pins a day (80% me, 20% other pins)
  • Repin my most popular pins more

3. Growing my email list


Last month I had 54 subscribers.

A month later – with still no lead magnet (freebie) – I was able to generate 213 more subscribers!

In. One. Month!



I can’t believe I generated over 200 subscribers in one month. That’s amazeballs!

What’s even more amazing is that my unsubscribe rate is fairly low! I’m super ecstatic about this and can’t believe it.

I’m working hard on making my emails valuable with tips that I don’t mention on the blog. I want my newsletter to be exclusive and make my followers feel special 🙂

So, how did I gain that many new loyal fans in only one month?

I made three content upgrades and one of them – my affiliate promo guide – is my highest converting one (by the way I’m using OptinMonster to deliver my content upgrades).



But, by far the most popular is my Pinterest and FB promo list.

If I’m going to do a recourse library, I would want to highlight this content upgrade as part of the overall incentive since I feel more people would want this guide over my affiliate marketing guide.

And other than pinning my posts with my content upgrades and sharing them on social media, I haven’t done much to generate subscribers.

Creating and implementing content upgrades with MailChimp sucks a lot! It’s highly complicated and take a lot of time, but I know it’s a powerful tool to bring traffic and subscribers and I’ll continue to offer content upgrades after I create a lead magnet (freebie).

Let’s see if I met my goals for last month:

  • Create more content upgrades and pages for my content upgrades (so I can share on social media) – Yes!
  • Create specific pins for my content upgrades – Yes!
  • Create a lead magnet or resource library + FB community – Fail! Not yet.

This is all great news, but not on target with reaching 10,000 subscribers in a year. I roughly need 800 subscribers a month and I didn’t reach that goal.

I do, however, have something HUGE lined up for the fall or late summer. HUGE! I feel this will generate thousands of subscribers (well crossing my fingers it will!).

What’s my plan for next month:

  • Create a resource library as my lead magnet
  • Create more content upgrades, but provide a bit more variety (video, templates, tools etc…)

4. Blogger Outreach

A couple things have happened in this area.

I’ve added more sites to visit and comment on, based on the comments left here. If you leave a comment and are in the mommy blogger niche or work from home niche, I’ll probably visit your site!

I’m also getting contacted by you – my readers – and asking for help! Which is fan-freakin’-tastic!

I totally want to help you all out, so feel free to email me and we can hash a plan out a blog plan together!

Last month, Twiniversity contacted me about writing for them and my post is finally up! Check it out if you have a toddler that’s a picky eater.

And finally, I’ve been getting tweeted and liked by some amazing popular peeps!

Caitlin Bacher, Andrea Beltrami (of The Branded Solopreneur) and Adam Connell (of Blogging Wizard) have tweeted my posts 🙂 Make sure to follow them!

I’m humbled by the thought of these people taking the time to tweet my content! Especially Caitlin, since the only real connection we have is with her Facebook group and newsletter. I’ve been to one webinar of hers, but that’s about it. So thanks so much Caitlin!

I’ve also reached out to Allison of Frugal on the Prairie as well as Kristin of Believe in a Budget. We’ve exchanged emails and I attended their joint webinar too.

I always like to network with other bloggers that have a product. You never know… I might do a webinar or giveaway in the future and networking with these ladies could pay off.

Did I Accomplish My Goals?

  • Comment on blogs related to my niche – Yes! But, not as much as I would like. Many of the blogs I visit don’t publish content weekly, or if they do, it’s a post I’m not particularly interested in. I’ve added more blogs, however!
  • Join more Facebook and Pinterest groups – Yes!
  • Ask other bloggers to contribute to a round upYes!

Happy to know that Twins Mommy is getting on the radar of some influential peeps out there. I’m looking forward to networking with more and more bloggers and creatives!

My goals for next month

  • Continue to network with other bloggers in my niche
  • Promote others’ content on my blog and in client pieces (freelance writing work) and on social media
  • Be open to any collabs

There You Have it!

Wow! What an amazing month.

I’m so surprised by how quickly I’m growing this blog in relation to the other blogs I have. But I’m floored by the connections I’ve made with other bloggers and commenters here!

It’s a great feeling when you start to build a community 🙂

I feel the key takeaway points that have helped me grow this blog are:

  • Producing quality long-form content (1,000+ words) twice a week
  • Pinning like mad
  • Forging relationships with others in your industry

And of course, creating pinnable images. I started this blog by finding a brand and template to go off of and it’s working. I even started branding my images on my other blog since I know how much this is helping generate repins and traffic.

Now, I hope I didn’t discourage you by telling you all this! My hope is to inspire you and get you motivated. I want you to try the tips I explained here and see if it will help grow your blog.

I’ll be doing blog growth reports every month and eventually when I monetize my blog, I’ll be sharing my earnings in income reports.

Check out what happened in my third month of growing my blog!

Hi Elna! Thank you for your post! I would like to understand what types of pin do you pin everyday that you are able to pin 200 per day. If you say you post twice a week (and I don’t think you are pinning 100 per one post) then what are the pins about (considering that they are also 80% yours and only 20% the others)? Are you repeating the content? I am struggling with pinning 10 per day, because for every I need to make a new post and new pictures. Best MarcoReply to Marco
Hi Marco, I wasn’t pinning 200 pins a day…more like 50-60x a day. Now it’s less though.Pinning 10 a day is a good strategy. Try to keep this schedule up and maybe over time you can lower to 5-6x a day.Reply to Elna
This is so encouraging Elna.I just started blogging myself and am struggling to drive traffic to my site.I will definitely be purchasing your course once I have enough time to actually study it since am kinda busy with work nowadays. I just bookmarked your site and will be coming back soon.Reply to Bruno
Hi Bruno, Thanks for wanting to enroll in Ready Set Blog for Traffic! It will help you gain traffic for sure 🙂Reply to Elna
Great post! You gave me some great ideas for continued growth. I have recently had an explosion with viewers on my Pinterest account due to a somewhat viral post and a few good pins. I went from under 100k viewers to 1.3mil in like a month. It’s getting me about 250+ visitors a day (more saves than clicks), which is pretty exciting but I’m still only getting like 50-70/day from google. I spend a lot of time on pinterest but looking to increasee search rankings as well. I will be using some tips or yours and continuing seo.Reply to Kayla
Hi Kayla! That’s fantastic to hear! Yes, Pinterest can give your those viral spikes and help boost your traffic! Good luck!Reply to Elna
Hey Elna, thanks for sharing. It’s super helpful to see what you’re focused on as you continue to grow your blog.Reply to Misty
Hi Misty, Thank you so much! Glad my blog growth update is helping you plan out your blog!Reply to Elna
Your blog is truly inspiring! Thanks for sharing your goals with us.Reply to Rodney
My God this is helpful, you have come such a long way Since December 2017, everytime I google a blog topic your blog comes up, goals AF! I just started blogging a little over a month ago and I will start to follow in your steps to hopefully achieve atleast half of your success. Thank you so much for your journey, it’s truly an inspiring one 🙂Reply to Jenyfer
Hey Jenyfer! Aww thanks so much! Enjoy the steps to grow your blog! Glad you came over and I hope more of my blog posts can help you!Reply to Elna
Elna, I have been following along and am excited to follow your advice and see big results. My goal for May was 1000 views and I’m already at 3000! Pinterest has been a big help! What is your advice for finding good group boards to join? I feel like boards are either not accepting contributers or only a small percentage that I reach out to respond. Do you have any tips?Reply to Jenny
Hi Jenny! That’s awesome! For finding group boards you can look at other blogger’s and see what group boards they are on. That’s the quickest way and what I do sometimes! You can also go to Facebook and see during promo days as many bloggers promote their group boards. I hope that helps! Check out my freebie on group boards. I’m pretty sure those are still accepting contributors! to Elna
Hi Elna, Your growth is truly inspiring! I have a parenting blog but it is really about sharing my experience in raising my six kids and years as an educator. I work full time so my growth has been slower. However I am gaining visitors every day. Thanks for your great information about Pinterest which I do plan to implement . Wishing you luck and I hope that we can collaborate some day.Reply to leah
What an amazing month for you Elna. I know that I have read this growth update very late (May!!) but it still contains strategies that can help us grow our blogs. I’ve been struggling to grow my traffic for my first 10 months of blogging but when I transformed my blog into a freelance writing website ( I was inspired by your Innovative Ink) and started to share awesome tips I learned from my freelance writing journey (freelance writer for 2+ years now), I grew my traffic better. I started to network with Facebook Groups for freelancers; I inspire them by posting my successes and eventually leading them back to one of my blog posts. I am now at 1,600 page views per month ( I know it’s low for a 1 year-old website) and I am claiming that by the end of this June, I’ll reach 3,000 page views per month in no time! Keep inspiring Elna! All the Best, Jan Limark | Brotherly CreativeReply to Jan
Hi Jan, That’s awesome to hear! And yes, having a service can totally help you boost your traffic! Good luck!Reply to Elna
Great post for Pinterest. I am having trouble with getting traffic from Pinterest sad face.? I have a buissness account verfied my website set up Rich pins hopefully I done this correctly. My images are better than they used to be I even have been using 2 pins per post to see what preforms better. I haven’t a clue what I am doing wroung. I have tried manual pinning. I am considering purchasing taliwind and am trying it out this week. I have yet to see a difference. I have literally 200 pintrest group boards confused on what I am doing wroung. If you pin 30 minutes apart could this make your pins not show up in the feed for some reason.Reply to Brittany
Hi Brittany! Wow that’s a lot of group boards!! I took a quick look at your blog and Pin profile. It looks like you are on too many “Catch all” type of boards. Like the “all best of Pinterest” type of boards. These boards aren’t targeted to a certain niche so the followers on those boards might not be in YOUR niche. I would remove myself from most of those and only keep the ones that are performing or close to your niche. But, I know you are a lifestyle niche too. And that’s hard to get dedicated traffic too. People don’t know your blog’s strongest’s just a catch all type…bloggers go to a blog because they either see a pin on a topic they are interested in and read it and then try to find similar content but then don’t, OR bloggers remember a person’s blog because they know that person blogs about one thing.. So people come to my Elna Cain blog because it’s all about being a new freelance writer. Nothing else…not about being a WAHM or established writer or about journalism. It’s about freelance writing for newbies. So consider narrowing your niche to focus on one or a few main topics that area relatable. You are also no a lot of group boards of soo many different niches..this is confusing, so consider sticking to one core niche for your group boards. You have a big following so pin a lot to your own boards too. I hope this makes sense?Reply to Elna
Hi Elna! I enjoy reading about your journey here. I’ve been in online business for several years now but I’m just now starting to take the blogging part seriously by being more consistent with it. It’s a lot of work but it’s fun and totally worth it. Thank you for sharing such awesome tips! I’ll be following along and implementing these nuggets as well. I wanna grow my blog too! Lol Congrats on all the success thus far. I’m taking notes mama! 😉Reply to C.J.
Hi C.J.! Fantastic you are here 🙂 I love hearing from my readers! Happy to hear you are taking your blogging strategy seriously! It’s a great way to connect with others and grow your brand! Good luck!Reply to Elna
I am so glad Pinterest brought me to this post! I love love love it! I have been struggling with growing my Pinterest followers and your tips will help me a lot for sure! I signed up with Tailwind recently and will try to implement all your tips here.Reply to Tisha
Hi Tisha! Thanks so much! Glad you found the post!!! And you liked it!!! 🙂Reply to Elna
love this! such an inspiration for me as an aspiring blogger. I’m currently at the 50 views a day mark but am totally going to use these tactics to increase it! Thank you 🙂Reply to Danielle
Thank you so much! Great and good luck using these tactics to grow your blog 🙂Reply to Elna
Wow, that’s a lot of stuff to digest. I used Tailwind in demo mode and now I have to register to continue using it. Do you use Facebook or others social media advertizing or do you use only Pinterest? Nice Work.Reply to Tony
Hey Tony, I’m only doing free promotional strategies. I also use FB and promote in various FB group promo days. I also use Twitter and sync that with an IFTTT recipe! It’s a lot but I need the automation since I’m a mom to twins and a freelance writer!Reply to Elna
Awesome post. Definitely bookmarking this one. Pinterest is a gold mine. Just realised this. I am growing my brand right now. Maybe in the future, we could do a collaboration of some sortReply to David
Hey David, That’s great and good luck!Reply to Elna
This is crazy awesome. Makes me want to do my own little “blog growth series” so I can track my growth. What seems really crazy is that you’re a part of FB groups, Pinterest groups AND comment on others blogs daily! How do you find the time? Especially with twins! My two aren’t twins, but they’re super active. I’m trying to find a schedule between my VA work and starting this blog. Can’t wait to keep following your journey!Reply to Brianna
Hey Brianna! Thanks a hoot girl! Yes, promoting your blog takes up 80% of my time (as it should be for every new blogger who wants to grow their blog). I automate a lot of my social media posting so it’s not that time consuming. What is, is writing blog posts for my two blogs + writing for my clients. I’m working hard when my kiddos nap and sleep for the night!Reply to Elna
As a young blogger, this article was very encouraging and offered a lot of guidance! Thanks so much for sharing your success. You’re definitely someone my team (aka sisters lol) and I look up to! to Nia
Thanks Nia! So happy you found these tips helpful for your blog.Reply to Elna
Elna, you’ve totally nailed the branded image bit. I love your images and I can recognize that they’re from you like a mile away! ? I totally suck at this and am working on improving my images. I hopped on Pinterest 2 weeks back and have been learning a lot from your Pinterest posts. Thanks for all the great tips. I launched end March and have been focusing more on guest posting. Not too bad on the subscribers front too. I’m experimenting with email marketing a lot to see how it goes. My main struggle is writing content for my blog together with guest posting at the same time. I’m loving these growth reports and you’ve got me thinking if I should do the same. Thanks Elna! ?Reply to Meera
Hey Meera! Thanks so much for your compliment! That’s great you recognize my Pins from a mile away 🙂 I love designing but it can become a big distraction so I have to curb it often. Guest posting is a great way to get your name out there. I haven’t done much of that to promote Twins Mommy except my gig at Twiniversity. I just don’t have the time to do that + write posts here and over on my freelance writing site! Oh yea, and I have client work. I’m sure you’ll do fine 🙂Reply to Elna
Hi thanks for the tips. My blog has 0 views idk why . Check out my new blog post on how to eliminate anxiety & sleep deprivation. Maybe if you like it you can mention it in a post to help others, nakedvibez.comReply to Halima
Hey Halima, I find that heavily promoting your post is the key to having others see it! But, then the other part is having a highly engaging post. So this means having a post that connects with the readers, rather than stating facts and tips. Good luck!Reply to Elna
Thank You.Reply to Halima
This is awesome Elna! I’ve been following this site since you launched it and I am amazed by the progress you’ve made. I would love to learn how you gave the option in your newsletters to opt-out of future resends in MailChimp. I read that email where you talked about it and I can’t figure out a logical way to do it!Reply to Monica
Hey Monica, Thanks so much 🙂 The re-send in MailChimp is a bit complicated. My husband was the one who figured it out so, he did a hack job. It’s on my to-do list to see how to do it and explain it in simple terms (if that’s possible. A lot of customization in MC requires coding background.) That’s why Convert Kit is awesome when it comes to that!Reply to Elna
Ok, you have way too much info going on your blog, I can’t stop reading! This is so inspiring, I am really new to blogging, like two weeks in, so it is nice to see you really growing so quickly and so helpful for you to be sharing how you are doing it.Reply to Emma
Hey Emma! Thank so much! I’m like totally shocked by how it’s growing. And fast too! Mommy bloggers totally rule! My other blog ( is a freelance writing blog for my freelance writing course and service and I don’t have this much traffic or comments or engaged readers! This is the best and I LOVE writing posts for mompreneurs in the making. I’m happy to hear you are devouring my posts and finding it helpful. I’m planning on doing some video so be on the lookout for that!Reply to Elna
This is fabulous! I am a brand new blogger and I’m going to have to re-read this and then reread it again exclamation point excellent advice!Reply to Kris
Hi Kris! Thank you so much. So glad I can help you out. Trying to grow your blog can be tough sista! We’ll grow our blog together ok? Be on the lookout for a webinar for new bloggers that I’m trying to coordinate!Reply to Elna
This is so awesome, and I am so excited for you. First; you have twin toddlers — I am SO envious. I want twins so badly. I have been watching all of the full-house episodes, and the little twins in that have really grown this desire. Second – I am amazed at how far you have come. It is so encouraging, and wonderful to see 🙂 keep it up – I look forward to reading more!Reply to Samara
Hi Samara! Having twins is truly a blessing and I’m thankful every day for them. But, they can be a handful for sure 🙂 Thanks so much. Glad you want to stick around and keep up with my journey 🙂Reply to Elna
Thank you for sharing! I am inspired to goal set more often after reading your post. I think your growth is awesome. You have an amazing number of page views! All the best! #bloggingboostReply to Dina
Hi Dina! Thanks so much! I’m super excited by my blog’s traffic and growth. I just hope it continues to grow and doesn’t stay stagnant! Thanks for stopping by! Love the hashtag girl! #bloggingboostReply to Elna
I love how you post every little detail! I actually started blogging the same time as you started this blog so its pretty cool to come back for info. I’m not growing like you are! you definitely should be proud of all the hard work you are doing and on top of that, your a mom of twins! I have a 2 year old and 8 month old so I cant even imagine! you’re such a trooper! = ) I like coming back to your page to look at where you felt you grew and how you grew. it gives me a lot of information to look at for myself for growth. I would like to know more in depth how you grew your pintrest following so FAST! I’m pinning about 30-40 per day right now. is it just because you are pinning so much more?Reply to Carmen
Carmen! Thanks so much! I love how we are doing this together! Yeah, a 2 year old and 8 month seems to be more challenging than my twins, only because they would have different sleeping and eating schedules! I don’t know if I could even freelance write if my twins didn’t nap at the same time! So kudos for you for DOING it! My Pinterest following! I know, right? But the real reason is I’m pinning more. I occasionally drop my Pinterest profile link on FB social media threads but I don’t do that often. Like I mentioned in my post, I’m working towards pinning 200 times a day! And it’s working. In five days I jumped from 1.6 to 1.7k…before that would take weeks. I also feel my Pinterest images are what’s helping me gain a following. They see my pins and they know it’s from TwinsMommy. Oh and one more thing is that I have joined like a LOT of groups! This is helping me spread my pins everywhere. Hey, I guess I should do a post on all this, eh? 😛Reply to Elna
Hi Elna! This post is so inspiring, great job! I would love to know more about the process of implementing content upgrades with Mailchimp – perhaps an idea for a post ? 🙂 Or maybe it’s too complicated? Also, with OptinMonster, is it the “after post” form that you use? I’m trying to get my head around opt-ins and emails subscribers – that’s next on my list for growing my blog 🙂 I love that way you have yours set up! Thanks 🙂Reply to Kate
Kate thanks so much! Creating content upgrades with Mailchimp is a nightmare really! It’s a two person job and my husband does most of it 🙂 What I do is, you have to create a new list for every new content upgrade. The reason for this is because if someone is already on your main list on Mailchimp, most lead capture apps and plugins like OptinMonster won’t subscribe them to the same list again, so they will never actually get the upgrade delivered. What I do is make a new list for every content upgrade and then OptinMonster subscribes people to that list as a single optin and then my husband uses some custom code (I think you can do this with too) to move the subscriber from that list to my main list as a double optin-in. I also tag (using MailChimp groups) them in my main list with the upgrade they wanted. Once they confirm the email, I have an automation that is triggered when that person is tagged with that content upgrade and is sent that content upgrade. Then I delete them from that original list or else it costs me money (having one subscriber opt in to many lists means I pay for them multiple times). If it sounds complicated, that’s because it is and that’s why my husband helps me since I’m a noob to tech. I use this method because I want everyone on one list (my TwinsMommy list) instead of having 5-6 lists. I’ll think about doing some sort of MailChimp hack series for bloggers. This entails my husband and well, he’s not a great teacher 🙂 Thanks for your interest though!Reply to Elna
Wow that definitely IS complex haha. Thank you for responding, I will try to get my head around it 🙂Reply to Kate
Ha! Yeah, it royally sucks, but for now my husband and I don’t like the other options available to us and if you can do some custom coding, MailChimp is the way to go.Reply to Elna
Hey there Elna! It’s really exciting watching you meet – and exceed! – your goals! You’re a great inspiration to all those women who are just starting out 🙂 Keep up the great work!Reply to Kelly
Hey Kelly! Thanks so much. I know there are a lot of mama bloggers out there trying to grow their blog like me. It’s nice to know they are picking up some tips on this blog! Glad you came by and enjoy your week!Reply to Elna
Ah, this is amazing! Really inspiring. I am a newbie! I will be following you on Pinterest 🙂Reply to Francesca
Hi Francesca! Thanks so much. I’m super excited for my growth and hoping my blog growth is ramping up for June. Pinterest is definitely my #1 traffic referral source but I really want to start thinking about SEO and organic search. Thanks so much!Reply to Elna
OMG babe! This post is epic. Super informative, easy to read and you have so much to offer me. As I was reading, I literally felt like I need to sign up and click on every link I read. Right now I have about 5 pages/ windows opened to read from your blog after I read this comment haha. I am definitely going to subscribe. Keep up the amazing work!Reply to Vanessa
Aww thanks Vanessa! I am so shocked by how supportive everyone is! From mommy bloggers to beauty bloggers to other lifestyle bloggers, I’m so happy to blog on this side of the fence (my other blog is more professional!). Thank you so much for stopping by. I love blogging and I love being a freelance blogger, but I’m really looking forward to kicking butt as a mompreneur! Happy to hear you want to follow me on my journey from mom to mompreneur!Reply to Elna
This is a great! Such an inspiration!Reply to Healing
Hi! Thanks so much. Glad you found some useful tips to grow your blog!Reply to Elna
