I’ve always felt very awkward with the saying “Happy Memorial Day” and I’m a bit uncomfortable with the commercialization of the day. Memorial Day is, after all, supposed to be a day to remember those who died in armed conflicts. A thought-provoking war memorial I saw in Sydney, Australia seemed a much more appropriate way to commemorate loss of life than bogo deals and parties.
I’m not trying to be a downer, but my inner history nerd feels compelled to point out what Memorial Day is “really” about! I sincerely hope that you don’t have a personal reason to mark the day.
Alright, now that I’ve shared my thoughts on Memorial Day, let’s get to the point of this post – June 2017 blog planner printables!
Just like last month, June’s stats tracker printable is available in the “printables for members” area of the blog. If you’re not a member and would like to become one while gaining instant access to the printable, you can download it for free from my Selz “store” here.
I’m really looking forward to finishing up my May blog stats tracker page in just a few more days! May is always my “best” month for views, and I’m eager to see how the month ends up. I suspect this May will be my best month ever (in terms of views, though not by some other measures). I wish I had other seasonal posts that performed as well as my lei making tutorials do during graduation season, but I haven’t found quite the right thing yet.
If you’re just starting your blog stats tracking journey, you may also be interested in my 2017 printable blog planner calendar. It has a page for each month as well as pages for you to jot down post ideas.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; tracking and planning are key to success in virtually any venture. It seems boring and cumbersome, but once you get into the groove of planning and tracking it can be really rewarding! I absolutely love looking back over the past two years to see how things have grown!
Planning is also very important me right now in other ways – getting ready to be away from home for a month takes a bit of preparation! In the next couple weeks I’ll be sharing tips on preparing your Etsy store for vacation and preparing for vacation as a blogger. I hope you enjoy them and have insights of your own to add!
How was your May?
