2018 End of Year Blogging Goals Update

I can’t believe the year is over already! So how did I do with my blogging goals for 2018?

Well, if you remember, my word for the year was CREATE and create I did.

I created the books Wascally Wabbits and Zombies Babies, La Yacata Revolution. A to Z Reasons why La Yacata is the Place to Be in Any Disaster, and A Woman’s Survival Guide to Holidays in Mexico, which you can see listed on my newly created Author Pages at Goodreads or Amazon.

I created an advertising page so that Surviving Mexico can move along to the next income level and go from being a slightly expensive labor of love to a self-sustaining site.

I created new material with a total of xxx blog posts in 2018. New readers were created as I went from 64,000 views from 46,000 visitors in 2017 to xxx views from xxx visitors in 2018. My readership has increased to end the year with xxx subscribed followers, xxx Facebook followers and xxx Twitter followers.

I’d like to thank each and every one of you for helping me reach that goal with a free download to another book I created this year A Day in the Life… A Compilation of stories from women creating a new routine in Mexico.

A Day in the life... cover

I also created a new office space in La Yacata since 2018 will forever be remembered as the year we finally got electricity and internet service!

And with all that creating, I’m happy to close out the year on a good note. How was your year?

2018 Mid-year Goal Updates

Can you believe that we are at the mid-point for 2018? Where did all the time go? If you remember, back in January I made a short list of goals for this year. Here’s how they have been going.

My word for 2018 was CREATE.

Here’s what I have created so far:

Featured guest posts for:

Charities and Non-Profit Organizations: The Border Rights Clinic

Inspiring Authors in Mexico: Don Karp

Blogs About Mexico Worth Reading: Ventanas MexicoLetters From MexicoSaltillo Expats,

Small Businesses in Mexico: Pets, Plants and PorchesIllustrations by Clau GuzesSMA Walking Tours by Joseph Toone, Tortilleria

Individuals Braving Mexico:  A Day in the Life in Owl Valley, A Day in the Life in San Circo de Acosta

Herbal Lore: Nispero leaf teaGuayaba Leaf Tea

Each of these categories should have more posts by the end of the year. At least that’s what I’m planning on.

I also participated in the A to Z April Blog challenge along with my SOTB Blogging group which was one of my secondary goals. You can find the full list here.

And finally, not only did I finish Wascally Wabbits and Zombies Babies but I also finished La Yacata Revolution and A to Z Reasons why La Yacata is the Place to Be in Any Disaster.


I am currently working on a book designed specifically for women moving to Mexico and have the outline for my homesteading in Mexico book.  Enough about what I did so far, back to more creating!
