How I track my blog and social media stats:
Part of my planning this year is focused on my blog planning and productivity within my blog and You Tube channel. I have spent a lot of time since September building up my blog, social media and You Tube channel, so decided to use one of my planners as a blog planner to plan my posts, filming and editing schedule and to track my site stats and to set Monthly goals. It has helped immensely with my productivity and it's a great way to see how my blog and social media presence is progressing each month.
Many years ago I used to have a very active website and group on MSN Groups called Starlight Studio Graphics. When I started I was I will admit a complete newbie to the internet and had no idea what I was doing. But I persevered and grew the group. It started off as me making 'sig tags' (very popular on MSN at the time). I got more confident and began learning html which was self taught and ended up being able to code html and php all my pages were html w3school certified and I was so impressed that I started creating layouts for others. The site grew and I branched in to pixel designed graphics and dolls, including some hand drawn bases and dolls that I drew from scratch and tubed for others to download.
I opened up my own Starlight Studio Graphics domain in 2004 and closed it around 2010 when my life became just too busy and I fell out of love with the pixel world and graphics. On closing the main page had hit 800,000 hits and one of the subdomains 'Dollie World' had over 450,000 of those visitors.
So...why start again? I am at a different place in my life now at 40 years young and have rediscovered my love of crafts, planners and art and would like a little place to share my makes. So as the title of the post suggests...Here we go again.
