Weekly Review

Jan 12, 2020

It’s Sunday so it’s time for the weekly review. If you haven’t seen one of these posts before, it’s where I share some behind the scenes information about my last week of blogging. 

It’s been lovely to see so many visitors to the site and growing everyday. I’ve especially enjoyed people signing up for the free Career Vision course. I love to think about the impact having a clear vision can have. 

What are the most popular posts from the last week? 

By far and away the most popular post this week has been about LinkedIn. I shared my top 10 tips to attract clients or work opportunities. You can read it here if you missed it. 

This makes me feel really happy that so many people are interested in how to use LinkedIn this year. 

Next on the list, we have the brilliant interview with Emily Hodge. I loved hearing about her calm and relaxed way of doing business. The interview is the first in a series called “How I Attract Clients” 

And number three in popularity was my post about what you can expect from me in 2020.  

Because of my break over Christmas and New Year, the biggest post has been missed out. It is a review of the decade and I took the opportunity to say thank you to so many of the people who made the decade a success. I warn you in advance, it’s a long one! 

Where has everyone been coming from this week? 

This was the week that Facebook beat LinkedIn for the first time! Only slightly but it won. Third in line was Instagram.

I have been a bit unfair to Instagram and haven’t been posting every blog there so maybe next week I’ll post everyday and see what impact that has on the stats. 

Interestingly, the amount of people coming direct to the site has leaped up to over 30% and the referrals from other sites have increased as well. Both are such a nice sign that people are returning and are following along on this crazy journey. 

My Favourite Comments

I love it when you comment on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter – thank you! Here are some of my favourites

In response to my post about getting started on LinkedIn This is so useful Ruth and takes all the angst out of those first steps!” 

And in response to the post reviewing the last decade, there were some lovely ones too. 

“What an incredible read ✨ thanks so much for sharing! 🙏🏼”

“I loved reading about your decade, Ruth. It impressed, inspired and delighted me! Thank you. Happy New Decade! 🙏”

“Amazing post Ruth Thomson – Can’t wait to see all the good you do for people in 2020! 🙌🏻 “ 

And in response to the interview with Emily

“ I really struggle with the hard sell approach as it seems very alien to me. So glad there is a different way that works!”

I love all your comments so keep them coming!

Staying in touch 

I’m not building a mailing list, my dream is to build relationships and a community of seekers, dreamers, goal setters and people who want to be in love with their work. If that sounds like you, you can subscribe below.
