For those new here: I share the Lead Safe Mama stats periodically so that you can see how YOU are helping us make a difference in the world; so you can actually clearly see how many people you are helping get this important information out to (and what countries they live in, all over the world!)
My goal this past month…
My main goal this past month was to get as close to 214,000 unique page views as possible here on the Lead Safe Mama blog. The idea behind that was to bump “November 2019” out of the “Twelve Best Months of All Time” list [above] — displacing it with September 2021!
Reaching this goal (We did it! Thank you!) means that 4 of the best 12 months of all time here on the blog happened this calendar year (2021) — in spite of the pandemic! And then 6 of those are from last calendar year (2020), which ALSO includes 4 months during the pandemic. The final two months (the two best months of all time here at LeadSafeMama.com) were in 2019 – before the blatant censorship and reach restrictions from Facebook started happening. [They actually censored our ability to post three Lead Safe Mama posts today – each from a different administrator of my pages and groups, and have shut down our reach altogether – but I am excited that I have been connected with someone at Facebook who may be able to help release us from “Facebook Hell!” I will keep you posted on that!]
Longer-term goals: Sustainability for the business of Lead SafeMama, LLC – so we can keep doing what we do without worrying about where $ are coming from each month!
If we can recover back to pre-pandemic levels (we averaged over 589,000 page views a month each month for the three months before the pandemic hit!), the business model of Lead Safe Mama, LLC will be fully sustainable (all of the costs of the work will be covered with income earned through advertising and affiliate links here on the blog!)… which is why our goal (for sustainability here) is 600,000 page views each month.
Each time you share one of our posts on the Internet (anywhere…In Redditt; on an Amazon Review; on Facebook; on Twitter; on YouTube — really anywhere) you are literally getting us at least one page view closer to that goal! So, Thank You for supporting this work in that way!
The goal (bigger picture / longer term) is to have all 12 months each year be in the top twelve months of all time —said another way: the goal is that each year our reach and impact is better than the previous year, and experiences significant growth! — but since that would mean that every month would have to pass 1,303,000 (to bump our current best month off the list), I am going to set that goal aside for the time being [but wouldn’t that be great!], and instead will focus on trying to have at least TEN months each year make their way into the list of the Top Twelve Months Of All Time here at LeadSafeMama.com (which would mean every month would have to exceed 604,000 page views!).
Realistic goal for October 2021
My (smaller, humbler, more realistic) goal for this month – October 2021 – is to reach at least 261,000 unique page views. I think with your help I can do it. I will keep writing and testing and testing and writing, and you keep sharing… k? Happy October, everyone; happy Lead Poisoning Prevention Month! It’s already promising to be quite an interesting month over here at Lead Safe Mama, LLC!
