How Big is 100,000: Weekly Re-Cap #2 – see what my progress is, halfway through the month of February!
Halfway through the month of February ….. 7,700 is the goal – a pretty big jump from last month’s 5,941! I am feeling pretty good about the month so far, but let’s dig into the numbers a little bit….
So – 7,700 month-end goal, which means I should be at about 3,850 right now. Welllll, I am sitting at 3,577 (although the day isn’t over yet), so almost 270 shy of where I should be. I am actually feeling pretty good about that. I have still consistently had 200 views or more per day, which is not something I have done before. Also, I am going to give myself a LITTLE bit of wiggle room in February, because I only have 28 days to reach my goal instead of 30 or 31.
To put that into perspective, if it were January and my goal was 7,700 and I had 31 days to meet my goal, I would need to average approximately 248 views per day. After 14 days at 248, I would be at 3,477 by the end of today. Instead, since I only have 28 days to meet my goal, I should be averaging 275 views per day, which gets us up to the 3,850 number above. Looking at it from that angle, I am only 100 shy of where I should be.
I also haven’t had a huge day either, which tends to happen about once a month (but not always).

There have definitely been moments this past week where I wondered if made a huge mistake in setting such a ridiculously large goal….. but then I tell myself to shut up and I keep plugging away 🙂 While I still feel cautiously optimistic about this month, I also feel like I have had to really bust my ass for these numbers – how in the hell will I jump from 7,700 all the way up to 10,000 next month! I honestly don’t know….. But, for now I will just try and keep my blinders on for the month of February and keep my head down.
Here goes another week of craziness – until my next update!
Oh, and here is a link to my Weekly Up #1 if you are just tuning in – I lay out all of my monthly goals for the year and give a little more background….
