Looking back on month of July, has been really busy!

Well, my lovely friends, it does seem like we have gotten to that time of the month again where I sit down and spend some time together with you guys looking back on the month that has passed and at the same time share some thoughts on what has been and what is ahead for us or me in this case! This is something that won't be any different this time around either. My thought on this is why change something that has become somewhat of a tradition for my blog and its a good way to wrap a blog month up as well, that's the idea anyway. So when I am now looking back on July my initial reaction is that it has been a really good month more or less on all fronts. I would say especially when it comes to my offline life. Work has been amazing, at times way too much.

Then again when it comes to my blog and its content, there isn't really much to brag about. At least when it comes to creating new content for it. I have only managed to write and publish one post (This family really needs your help right now!), that is if you do not count this one of course. Not really been in a place where focusing on articles has been an easy thing to do. On the flip side of this, there has been some really good growth and increase of traffic to my blog, this is a good thing. I know this might not seem much for you guys but it has gone from 1037 clicks in June to 1522 in July. These are amazing numbers for me and a big chunk of the traffic has come from Israel and Hong Kong.

I would say that July has been really bad content-wise, but really good all-round when it comes to traffic, both on my blog and on social media (especially on Twitter). I have no idea why there has been such a spike in traffic to my blog, but not going to complain about it either. I'll try to explain it with that I am at least doing something right? The good part is that the Twitter trend from June has continued into July as well. At the beginning of this month, I had 160 followers and at the end of it, I am now standing at 342, a little bit short of my initial goal of 400. Guess I was a bit ambitious. What is even better is the fact that my account has survived, something I guess has to do with me toning down politics.


At the same time, I have completely failed my Facebook pages and my YouTube channel big time. Not being able to follow up with posts and videos on any of them. As said, I have had a very busy month and the energy hasn't really been there for me at all. So this is something that I have to try to focus more on in the future since my Facebook pages are now losing followers, but my YouTube channel has grown a bit, from 24 subscribers to 26. With this said, it does seem like I am starting with the what is ahead part now and once again I do have big plans for the month ahead. Especially when it comes to my blog and my YouTube channel. There is also some other big news waiting in the future.

Maybe I should uncover the big news first, we are actually in the process of moving to a new place, again. This time it is to a house we are going to rent. We are moving from the penthouse to a house around the end of the first week of August. This is something we are looking forward too because if there is one thing we have been missing while living at this apartment complex it is privacy and since we are more people living under the same roof, we do need more space. The thing is that the family from the blog post (This is a family that reallydo need your help now!) are now living with us. Its the least we could do in a situation like this and that means we need more space.


When it comes to my blog, I do have a few ideas for future posts. Some that never got done this month and some of them are brand new. There is a few that I really do need to get up on my blog, to be honest. As it looks right now there will be or I hope to get at least 5 posts up on my blog by the end of August if I can. When it comes to Twitter my new goal is now 600 followers by the end of the month, but it would be amazing if I manage to push 1000 (not that I think that will happen). For me, it's important to grow my following and that way increase the reach my blog has. When that is said, that's why it's so important that I focus more on my Facebook pages as well.

I know it might be silly to have goals like this since it's pretty much out of your control, but for me, it's a way to stay focused on things. It hasn't worked for my blog, but it has done so for Twitter. Anyway, one amazing month has now ended and a new one stands at the gate ready to get started. I do have the feeling that August will be the best month in a long time. We are moving to a new place. I am going to try to get started on my YouTube channel and I am kinda in the works with some new projects as well. Not sure when these are going live, but it will happen before the end of December or that's the plan anyway. So how has July been treating you? Had a good month?


Well, I guess its time for me to wrap this post up and get it to read for my blog. It has gotten way longer than I had plans for when I got started working on it. For some odd reason, this always happens to me. It's weird in many ways. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoyed my post and if you did, why not check me out on social media? You can find me on Twitter (Jack White Sr), on Facebook (Beyond the Horizon) and (Jack White Sr), on Instagram (Beyond ourHorizon) and on YouTube (Beyond the Horizon 2.0) At the same time you can support my work through donating a cup of coffee through Ko-fi (Jack White Sr). You do not need to donate, would appreciate it if you just shared my posts and thing like that!
