700 Followers Milestone! Blogging Goals and Q&A

I now have 700 followers on The Pearly Life!!!  I would like to thank every single one of you that followed and showed support on my posts. I honestly didn’t think I would be at this point at all when I started blogging. It’s an amazing and surreal experience. Angela said something about getting followers so quickly in her recent post which I thought was so true.

I feel excited, but also freaked out at the same time. It is a strange feeling to get a large influx of  followers and sometimes you do not even believe it is happening to you. I feel like I may just blink and it would be over!

Blogging Goals

My blog stats tremendously improved in the month of May. I started my blog on June 2016  then abandoned it a month later. It was March 2017 that I started to take my blogging more seriously. My stats, views, likes, followers and engagement have in turn increased each month and I hope I can continue in this upward trajectory!

I would like to begin branch out on the type of posts I make. My blog is seriously lacking in the Lifestyle category so I would love to increase the frequency of those posts. I personally love a bit of diversity so I would love to blog about different topics on my blog. What would you guys like to see? I would love to hear your opinion on it!

I also see myself moving into a self hosted blogging platform like WordPress.org soon. I like WordPress.com but there is a serious lack of creative freedom when it comes to the design of your blog, SEO tools, widgets and many more. It has become more frustrating so I will begin to seriously look into moving in the coming months!

I also would love to increase my social media presence now so I am currently focusing on Instagram and Twitter. I don’t know what I’m doing yet but once I figure it out I will make a post helping my fellow bloggers here! ❤

Q&A

I also think it would be appropriate to do a Q&A now since I have quite a number of people subscribed to this blog. I love reading Q&A’s and it would be nice to let you all know a bit about the person behind this blog!

If you have any questions please leave a comment and I will answer it in my next post or next two posts!

500 Followers Milestone + Questions!

So I have 500 blog followers now! It is such an amazing blogging milestone to reach. Thank you so much for following this little corner on the internet! I truly think this is the fastest growth I have ever experienced on any social media platform. WordPress.com is great and I’m really enjoying the community here. Thank you all so much!

It’s getting pretty hard to know everyone that follows me but I will try as much as possible to keep engaging with everyone that follows me. I see so many different followers on my page. Where are you from? Comment below!

For those stumbling on my blog for the first time, Hi! My name is Pearl and I’m a 20 year old from Nigeria. I have a Bachelors degree in Biomedical Science and I am starting my Masters in Biotechnology at McGill University this fall! Although I am a big lover of biology, I have many other passions like music, movies, beauty, reading and travelling. I mostly blog about beauty, travelling and lifestyle on my blog.  Take a look around!

Blog Updates
I recently added an RSS feed subscription for people not on WordPress (side bar) so you can keep up with my blog.

I also started a Pinterest and Facebook  page for The Pearly Life. Please like and follow me there if you so choose!

Finally, follow me on my Instagram! I will be sure to follow back if you drop a quick “Hey from the blog!” on one of my pictures. Thank you 🖤🖤
