October was an incredible month here at Wonder and Wander, and I had a great time putting together #youautumnknow – our guide to fall fun in Jackson County. October was also a record-breaking month here on our little corner of the internet, so I wanted to take a moment to welcome our new visitors and to share some gratitude. (More on the record-breaking in a minute!)
First of all, thank you so much to all of our new visitors for stopping by. Whether you found us through the trunk-or-treat post, which is our most popular post to date, or you found us through social media, we are so happy that you took a moment to visit. We hope you will continue to stop by the site, that you’ll sign-up for our email list to stay connected, and that you’ll take a moment to share Wonder and Wander – Jackson with others in the community!
No matter how long you have been stopping by Wonder and Wander – Jackson, we want to extend a huge THANK YOU! It may sound like an exaggeration, but every site visit, social media like, and share is a chance for Wonder and Wander to continue growing. I have some big dreams for this community, and I am excited to have you along for the adventure!
Back to this, as promised. Stats are a big thing to take a look at when building a business like Wonder and Wander – Jackson, and oh boy, do we have some great stats to share with you for the past month.
-One grant won (woohoo!)
-Instagram followers increased by 13.3%.
-Facebook following increased by 46.8%.
-There were 998 unique visitors to the site in October (an increase of 464%).
-There were 5,391 pageviews on the site in October (which is an increase of 602%).
These are big shoes to fill for November, but this feels like a step in the right direction!
My Promise to You.
When I created Wonder and Wander – Jackson back at the end of May, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I knew I wanted to build a resource to highlight all of the kid-friend gems in Jackson County because we didn’t have one. I knew I wanted to create an inclusive community (not just focused on moms) so that everyone would feel welcome here. I knew this was a resource I had wished for many times myself, and I only hoped others felt the same. The support of the community has been overwhelming, and I am so excited to continue to grow and create to see where this goes!
Wonder and Wander – Jackson’s mission is simple:
Adventure. Explore. Connect.
We promise to stay focused on these goals while sharing about all things kid-friendly in Jackson County. We promise to continue to find new ways to connect with you and the community (trust us when we say amazing things are in the works). We promise to continue to provide you with the best and most up-to-date information for local happenings.
On behalf of Big, Little, and myself – thank you, thank you, thank you!
