Looking back on month of September, weird month!

Well, my friends, it for sure looks like we now are back at that time of the month again where I sit down with you guys to spend some quality time together with you while looking back at the month that has passed and at the same time share some thoughts on what has been and what's ahead for us or more like my plans for the upcoming month both online and offline. I have to follow up this tradition even though this has been a very low productive month for me when it comes to my blog and social media in general. I would say it has been one of the worst months in a long time! Trust me, I will get back to this during this post!

So when I am now looking back at September, there is one word that really comes to mind or sticks out, disaster. Its the word that really describes this month the best possible way because none of my original plans came through for me. Not a single one. Okay, I might be lying somewhat here because I got my YouTube channel up and running, but that pretty much it. The thing is that this month has been nothing like I expected it to be, not when it comes to health or time. Yes, I have been dealing with some health issues that have for the most part made it difficult to focus on things like my blog. I have been having a hard time with an infection in shoulder and elbow, not a good thing to deal with!

I am not that type of guy that complains a lot, but when I am looking back on September it feels like I have a reason to. Anyway, I am going to look at the bright side of things because there is some sunlight on the horizon. I did manage to publish one post (I have finallyuploaded my very first video to YouTube) and I have gotten started on my channel (uploaded about 19 videos, trying to upload daily gaming videos for now. I have gotten 13 subscribers and several hundreds of views already. I think that is something to pin as a positive, right? At the same time, I am pursuing another exciting project of mine, not related to this tho.

So when I am looking at the statistics for my blog especially, I had a record month when it comes to visits and clicks. There has been 3450 visits or clicks throughout September, that's up from about 2300 clicks in August. That's actually an improvement of 1150 clicks in just one month alone and I feel that the blog itself is heading in the right direction that way, even without any updates beside on post for the entire month. When it comes to Twitter, not much to brag about, to be honest, and the truth is that I haven't really been that active this month, but had a minor growth tho. I am as of writing this post standing at 503 followers, so its a minor growth as mentioned.

With this said, all I can do is hoper for a better month ahead because the one we are about to leave behind has been nothing but a let down for me personally. Especially when it comes to how things have turned out with my blog and social media in general. Saying this without giving any concrete promises when it comes to the type of posts I will be focusing on. I have made this mistake to many times these past couples of months. Anyway, not everything is doom and gloom, not when it comes to work and work-related. At least this seems to be steaming forward better than ever actually and that's a good thing. My new YouTube channel has had a great kick-off too, tons of videos, views, likes and a handful of subscribers. All in the spirit of a good start.

So as tradition goes I have set some minor goals for myself with my online projects and presence. When it comes to Twitter I want to pass the goal I set for myself back in August of 600 followers, that has been a hard nut to crack, to be honest. At the same time, try my best to focus on expat and travel-related topics both on my blog and on social media. Continue working on my YouTube channel, hope to see a jump to 20 or 25 subscribers this month, but it's not a priority. I want to see the good progress when it comes to clicks and visitors on my blog. With that, I need to get better at promoting my blog on social media, I have failed big time on this lately.

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 our Horizon) 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).
