My Sixth Month Blogging – Shaking Things Up

turned off laptop computer

Welcome to the recap of my sixth-month blogging! These are the updates where I share all the stats and progress of the Financial Pupil. The reason I do this is:

  1. Because nobody out there had any updates like this and I was always curious about the progress of other bloggers.
  2. To keep me accountable and push myself to strive harder.

In this post, I’ll run through a recap of the month, the new blogs I’ve published, and of course my stats for the month. Let’s dive right in.

Recap

If you’re an avid golfer in Ontario, Canada, you’ll already know this… but golf has finally re-opened! Those of you who know me know that golf is a huge part of my life. When golf courses shut down it put a serious halt to my hobbies, so I was extremely happy when I got the news.

As for actual blogging, this month I tried to focus more on writing posts that will help YOU as a reader. After all, that’s what Financial Pupil is all about: helping young adults succeed in their personal finances. So you’ll notice that a whole bunch of my posts center around the job-hunting process and how to make money while still in school.

Speaking of the job-hunting process, I’ve been employing some of my own advice and have started my networking. The field that I’m really interested in right now is finance! So this past month I’ve been reaching out on LinkedIn to various strangers (working in the financial industry) and asking to set up coffee chats. My funnel looks something like this:

  • Reach out to 20 people on LinkedIn
  • 3 respond and I chat with them
  • Set up a call and talk with 1

For pace, I’ve been posting consistently on Monday and Thursday and sticking with my plan. I’ve begun to fall into a steady routine where I know around how much time it will take me to write a blog post, and budget accordingly.
