Is converting analytics into blog visitors really a thing? Can you really do that? I have heard one too many bloggers say that they do not understand analytics. I totally get it. Analytics across Google, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter are just a bunch of numbers, percentages and charts. If you know me, you know I hate numbers. But, I LOVE running analytics. It’s something that I do once a month for some of my clients. The reason why I love analytics so much, is because when you really take the time to dive into analytics, you can figure out how you are performing on that particular platform, and you can achieve converting analytics into blog visitors. But, before you begin, you have to understand how to read them. Here is a quick run down on the analytics I take a look at. Click through to find out more.
Jaxon’s first birthday was this past Monday, November 13th, 2017. The day went by a lot faster than I wanted it to. However, it was decided early on that we were not going to throw Jaxon a first birthday party. Most people were disappointed when we told them we were not having a party. I think that they assumed it meant that we were just not going to celebrate it at all. Really, y’all? However, throwing a birthday party is not the only way to commemorate the first birthday, nor do I think it is the BEST way. There are many first birthday ideas, but I will highlight my top 5.
Piercing my son’s ears was not a decision that I made lightly. However, it was a decision that taught me a valuable parenting lesson. After a year-long debate between Marquis and I, I reluctantly decided to pierce Jaxon’s ears. And I do not regret it. If little girls get their ears pierced, what’s wrong if a little boy has earrings too? Instead of him growing up to possibly feel different for being a little boy with earrings, he will instead look up to his daddy, uncles, and other men and see that boys and men with earrings are a normal thing.
Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.
This cute brunch outfit is from Charlotte Russe. My best friend turned 25 this past Sunday, so Marquis, Jax & traveled to celebrate with her! But let’s be honest, I never need a legit reason to go eat brunch. Brunchin’ is a habit. I paired the velvet, floral one-piece with my trusty high-waisted jeans, and a pair of black Jessica Simpson, closed-toe heeled sandals.
