Unfortunately, May was another not so great month in terms of traffic for Breakfast at Lilly’s. Last year both April and May were lower than a lot of other months last year so if all goes according to last year’s pattern, traffic will begin to pick back up in June – fingers crossed that’s the case.

May Blogging Goals Recap
26.5k Instagram Followers – nope…another slow month for Instagram. I’m hoping it picks up again soon.
2,400 Twitter Followers – yikes, not this one either. Like Facebook, Twitter is a hit or miss for me.
11,300 Pinterest Followers – and another one that wasn’t successful.
Reach 10k page views – and definitely not on this one.

What I’ve Learned this month…
Some months are going to be slower than others // This month was truly proof that some months are going to be quite a bit slower than others and that’s completely okay.
Your page views don’t have to be sky high to get sponsored work // This month I’ve secured quite a few sponsored campaigns even though my page views haven’t been at their best in a couple of months.
