Google Analytics is a software that creates reports and gives live information about your audience, content, traffic source, demographics of your audience to name a few. Google analytics is one the most important part of your blog.  If you want to grow your blog, make a good relationship with Google Analytics.

Why Do You Need Google Analytics?

You need Google Analytics because it helps answer many important questions regarding your blog performance. Some of them are: –

  • The number of people that visit your website
  • The popular blog post or content on your site
  • The demographics of your audience
  • The popular pages on your site
  • If your readers are on mobile, desktop or tablets
  • The geographic location of your audience.
  •  Which website or social media site is sending visitors to your site?All these answers will help you to create more audience-focused content. Shift your focus to one or two well performing social media account. Choose right day to publish your post. Get to know the busiest day and time of your blog.If make yourself more aware of GA then it’ll help you a lot in taking your blog to next level.


    First, you need a Google Analytics account. If you have an account with Google (Gmail or any other account) then you can use that account to create GA.

    Click on Sign in button on Google Analytics to set up your account. You will then be greeted with the three steps you must take to set up Google Analytics.

    add Google Analytics to WordPress

    Click the Sign Up button and fill out information on your website.

    add Google Analytics to WordPress

    The process is pretty simple and easy to follow along:-

    What would you like to track: Choose website

    Account Name: Enter your name here.

    Website Name: This is to help you keep track of all the websites you have on your account.

    Website URL: Enter your domain name.

    Industry Category: Choose a category that your website fits into from the drop-down menu.

    Reporting Time Zone: Choose your corresponding time zone.

    Data Sharing Settings: This is to decide if you want to share your Google Analytics data with Google representative and receive emails from them. I usually uncheck them all.

    Google Analytics

    Once you are finished, you will click the Get Tracking ID button. You will get a popup of the Google Analytics terms and conditions, which you have to agree to. Then you will get your Google Analytics code.

    Congrats!! Your Google Analytics account is Set up.


    To start tracking your website performance and get the full picture of your blog, you’ll have to add the Google Analytics code to your website header.

    There are two ways to do this:-

    Step 1: What I did was installed a plugin called Header and Footer in my WordPress and added the code in the header section of the plugin. It’s very simple.

    To install a plugin, go to your WordPress Dashboard and click on plugin> add new > type Header& footer or any other plugin that you want to install.

    Some people prefer plugins like Monster insight but the reason I choose Header & footer plugin is this plugin is multi -useable. Any code that you need to add to the header or footer of your site can be added using this plugin. For example, tracking code of your ads or in my case, I have added the sign-up form at the header using this plugin.

    By the way, you can check your GA report straight in google so there is no need for an extra plugin.

    add Google Analytics to WordPress

    Step 2: To add the code to the header section of your theme.

    I wouldn’t recommend messing with your theme unless you are sure of it. Move over when your theme gets updated there is a high chance that you might have to re-add those codes, double work.

    But, if you insist then click on Appearance on WordPress Dashboard> Editor> Theme header> and add your code.

    That’s It. Congratulation!! Your Google Analytics is set up and ready to track the performance of your Site.



    The one screen where I have my eyes glued is REAL-TIME. I think most of the bloggers are obsessed with their pageview numbers, at least I’m.

    Especially in the beginning when you are trying to see if people are coming to your site. Are they enjoying your work? Thousand times I’ve told myself that I’ll only check Google Analytics at the end of the day but am I listening to myself??? NOPE!!

    Ok, let see what can we learn from the real-time report.

    add Google Analytics to WordPress

    To get this screen, click on Real-Time on the right side of the dashboard and hit Overview.

    On this screen, you can see –

    • the total number of users browsing your site at that very moment
    • pages and post they are reading,
    • their location as well as
    • the source that referred them to your site like Pinterest, Facebook etc
    • devices that your readers are using to access your site like mobile, desktop or tablet.

    Amazing huh???


    As the name suggests, this report is important to check your business health. Here you can check the number of users who visited your site as per days, weeks, months and year. It’s important to understand this report. Check the below screenshot.

    add Google Analytics to WordPress

    From this screen, I can find out the number of users who visited my site from 18th – 27th of March. The total number of page views, users, new users and bounce rate – is the rate at which users are leaving your site (lower the bounce rate, better it is. )

    If a bounce rate is higher then you’ll have to find out what is making your readers leave your site? It could be many things like less number of posts, the standard of content, site performance, site load time, font, ads etc. Among these, load time and overall site performance are the major ones. Also, for me, small font size means bye-bye.

    You can also see if you are retaining old readers in the pie chart.

    Familiarise yourself with different subreports, it’ll help you a lot to understand your audience.


    Aquisition report is mainly for your traffic source. This report helps you to find out your traffic source. From here you can figure out which platform to focus on – Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram or SEO. You can also find out which landing page is performing better.

    If there is any website referring traffic to you?? You’ll know every point of source for your traffic and accordingly focus on a well-performing source, work on strategies that are working.


    This is one of the most important reports as it gives you more info about your content. From this report, you can find out your most popular post and create more content on that topic, add affiliate links to that post.

    If you are writing about multiple topics and not able to figure out your focus area then this report will help you to find your direction.

    You can also check your site speed from this report which is very important for good user experience. More on this in next post.


    add Google Analytics to WordPress


    These are few important reports that will help you tremendously to understand your business progress and decide your next step.

    If you keep a close eye on your reports then you’ll understand your audience, their preference and you’ll be creating more useful content for your audience. I’m sure you must have read many times that you need to know your audience to create valuable content. Do you know how to find out your audience and serve them right content???

    YES, you do now!!

    Just check your Google Analytics reports. You’ll not only know what kind of content your audience like but also where are they based. What are the busy time for your site and the busy day?

    This information will help you in Creating useful content for your readers, schedule your content properly, choose a  right time to be on social media and focus on your successful social media account etc.

    Google Analytics is not just to check the page views but it’s a lot more than that. I hope this how to add Google

    Analytics to WordPress guide will help you understand your analytics better and make the best use of it.

    Good Luck!

Do you Facebook Live? Do you want too but don’t have the nerve?


How many of you have done a Facebook live and what was your experience with it?  I remember when I did my first one..  my nerves were on over drive..  I was so scared.. I was shaking and stumbled on what I wanted to say.  But then I met a lady that was doing a challenge on facebook live’s and I took the challenge..  I thought I needed to learn from one of the best that I have saw and she was so confident on her lives so I thought why not try it. 

So each day for five days she gave us a subject and that’s what we spoke about .  I uploaded all my videos on to my youtube channel..   Here is one of them:

Here are a few things that the powers that be recommend. 

  1. Tell people ahead of time of your facebook live. (i have heard that both ways so do what works best for you)
  2. Plan and be a resource.  I personally make notes prior to my live and practice some.  The main thing is know what your talking about. Know your product or what ever it is that you are talking about that day. 
  3. Stay Longer. I think what they are say is it take a minute or two for people to get the notifications that you are going live.. ( that’s the reason they say to give a heads up ahead of time. makes since, right?)  Talk about something else before you actually start your subject.   
  4. Add a call to action: Ask people to drop a  like or a Hi to just say your here. Invite people to share..  You can get really creative and have a drawing for a prize for the person that shares the most and gets them to view the Live.   People love free stuff.   Say hi to everyone as they come in.   Be social.. after all this is a social network.

My biggest advice to you is this.. on my computer I have a webcam. I have practiced and practiced on it.  I pick my subject, review, review, review and then I start the cam..  I have been known to take up to ten times to get it right..  Once I like it I share it on Facebook. ( that was my way of doing a live)  LOL  I can laugh now at myself..   Then when I did the challenge by the fifth day I was like okay with practice I can do this. I had come a long ways from day one to day five.. I found it wasn’t all that hard and it was okay to mess up and laugh about it..  we are all just human and when we make mistakes and laugh it off people laugh with you.  but I also found out that people respect you more.  more than likely you are doing something they want too do and they love that you have the courage to do it.   You never know you may inspire one of your friends to do the same. so when  you see someone that is going live, stop in and say hi and give her or him some encouragement.   That goes a long ways.  

If you need some help with your first live or your even your next one get with me.. I will be happy to go live with you or support you and cheer you on..  

I don’t always do video’s on just my products that I sell.  Here is another one to see:  Banner ad video.

Mix things. Always remember to be yourself.. People love real..  so what if you mess up.. its okay.. we all do it. we don’t live in a perfect world.

Hair Loss ! What to do about it…

There are many reasons why you might be losing your hair. Just a few are genetics, postpartum, hormonal, stress, and poor nutrition,  So of these reasons there is a pretty quick fix like eating right, stop stressing.. but when its beyond your control there is help for you and this help is what I want to address now. 

I am a believer in the products that I personally use and I am here to testify that these products do work and why. 

Over a year ago I was introduced to Monat.. I tried a sample that was mailed to me and I loved the way that my hair felt and the way I was in total control when  I styled it. What I mean by control is my hair didn’t fly all over the place when I blow dried it an the styling process seemed to be less time and was so easy to manage.   So I spoke to the lady that sent me the samples and I told her I wanted to buy some shampoo and conditioner.  Being the good sponsor that she is she asked me a few questions about what I wanted out of my experience with Monat and what did I expect the out come to be.  I told her I was having problems with thinning and I was actually scared that I was going to go bald.  Knowing how thin my mothers hair was I could see mine doing the very same thing.  So we came up with the system that was going to give me the best possible results. 

One and a half years later this is me: 


I am so proud to be a Monat Partner and I am very proud of myself again because I have hair again.. Is it as thick as I want it, no but its getting there and I have no doubt with continued use of these products my hair can only get better.  I only wash my hair three times a week now.  Where before I had to was it everyday.. Some times I go three days. I use the dry shampoo in between.  It grows so fast now that I am seeing my hair dresser about every two months.  

Needless to say I am in love with Monat.  We are Modern Nature and all our products are natural based..   We say not to the following ingredients.  

 So I ask you what is in your products.. Educate yourself..  

Are you thinning, battling hair loss? Monat can help! 

Monats top ingredient to help stimulate hair growth is Capixyl.  It gets in your system in 26 seconds..  Can you image that.. What about all those products that  aren’t really good for you.   EEEkkkks


This is a list of the good ingredients in Monat.

For those that are interested in what I used to regrow my hair:  IRT System which includes the shampoo and repair spray, Rejuveniqe Oil, IRT Conditioner.

Have a great day.

6 Tips On Working From Home

The LifeStyle of some one who Work’s from Home.   Lynn SparksTax Booster is my choice and being an Avon Rep. but this applies to any working from home business.  Hope you receive a benefit from my post.

Due to our increasingly connected world, it’s becoming easier and easier to work from home. How do some of our most successful friends and mentors do it? Here, we caught up with Alicia Hessinger Dias and Emily Seagren to score their best tips on eliminating distractions, creating a great work space in your home, and more.

1. Figure Out Your Best Working Time

For Dias, it’s all about late-night work sessions. ”I find the evenings a bit of a quiet time to multi task and get through a number of things on my to do list,” she says. But beware, she says. Working while you’re making dinner may not be the best use of your multitasking skills. Another tip from Dias is to work when you have the lulls in between major tasks. For instance, she says to work in the morning while you enjoy your a.m. coffee or tea.

2. Eliminate Clutter

Remember in high school or college when you’d clean your room before sitting down to study for exams or write a paper? The same principle applies here. Avon Representative Emily Seagren notes that “it’s important that whatever area you chose to work in is clutter-free, so you can focus on being productive that you don’t have to clean a mess.”

3. Maximize Your Uninterrupted Time

Says Dias, invest in your time in something that furthers your own brand, your own voice, your own business. “For me that is usually my blog and investing in some time to truly tend to it and write a good post and share it out. Usually an hour for writing, perfecting and sharing with the additional 30 minutes for picture taking.” Be realistic with yourself about how much time things take and plan accordingly throughout the week. Seagren advises getting rid of distractions by putting your phone in airplane mode. “Don’t answer the phone, check emails, or look at Facebook while you’re in your work zone,” she says.

4. Prioritize

Seagren loves to be creative and go on a whim, but if she doesn’t plan, she ends up making things more complicated in her head. For her, it’s all about a checklist. “My kids are in school from 7:30-2:30, when I’m at breakfast, I have my planner with me to write down what I want to accomplish for work,” she says. Seagren prioritizes based on the area of business that she wants to grow the most. It’s all about considering what will have the most impact and spending your time on that first.

5. Always Be Learning

Seagren listens to personal development and motivational speakers while she cleans her house, so she’s still learning. Even while doing things unrelated to her work as an Avon Representative. She likes to the following speakers and authors: Dani Johnson, Brendon Bouchard, John Maxwell, Sarah Robbins, and Zig Ziglar.

6. Clock It

Use timers and alarms to keep you on schedule for meetings, work projects, email time, or phone calls to keep you task. Seagren’s uninterrupted work time is from 11am to 2:30pm, so she uses these tools to keep her as productive as possible during the two days where she doesn’t have a babysitter.

There is so many myths about hair growth and I know its hard to pick one over the other when it comes to healthy hair.. I always say if one don’t work then try another.

I am going to try to help you through all the clutter when it comes to picking a vitamin.  Vitamin are really important to healthy hair along with the right shampoos and conditioners.


Along with the popularity and success stories associated with hair growth vitamins come the inevitable myths that influence consumers’ purchasing decisions. Some may be based in fact, but most of them are simply untrue and should be ignored when seriously considering steps to support and protect the growth of your hair.

Here is a quick 1-2-3 list of some of our favorite debunked hair vitamin myths:


    While Biotin is a critically important ingredient in most effective hair growth vitamins, it is not the only one. There is much more to hair growth than taking a simple biotin capsule, as it is only one integral component.


    Prenatal vitamins are really not ideal for promoting existing hair growth. In fact, unless you are actually pregnant, you should not consume prenatal vitamins as they may contain high quantities of unnecessary iron.


    Hair grows from the root, not the tip, so trimming your hair does not impact the speed or support of its growth. It may make your hair look healthy and free of split ends, but it won’t have an effect on its growth.


With all of the confusion about what is true and what is just a myth, here are some key truths to consider. Check out this checklist of three existing hair growth facts:


The best hair growth vitamins on the market are the ones comprised of natural, healthy, non-synthetic ingredients. By cutting out the fillers, you’re providing your hair with the most helpful elements it needs.


Clinical studies and rigorous third-party testing will illuminate the hair growth-supporting vitamin blends that are worth your time and effort. Backed by scientific research, you can bank on the quality of the products.


Always try to look for proprietary blends that include the most comprehensive assortment of vitamins, nutrients, and ingredients. Nourish your hair by utilizing vitamins like A, B complex, K, and more.


Know which ingredients to look for –– and which to avoid –– in a quality hair blend.



  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin K
  • Vitamin B Complex (B1, B2, B3, etc.)


  • Saw Palmetto Berry
  • Bamboo Stem & Leaf
  • Flaxseed Oil
  • Borage Oil
  • Horsetail
  • Kelp








Know ones to avoid:


    This “flow agent” may seem harmless, but in reality it is an unwanted and generally unhealthy additive, depending on the source. Most sources for magnesium stearate are genetically modified, and treated with high amounts of pesticides, due to its origins as a cottonseed oil base.


    Widely relied upon in vitamin manufacturing as a coloring agent and binding mineral, titanium dioxide is well-known to create health compromises in the immune system. Low-quality hair vitamin blends typically include this filler.


    Oftentimes, tablets and capsules don’t fully release before they pass through the body—which means the vast majority of healthful effects are wasted. Gelatin is harvested from animal byproducts, so besides excluding all vegetarians from use, it is just not as healthy as vegetable capsules.

I highly recommend:  Monats S3 SUPPLEMENT


An all-natural hair growth supplement


MONAT has raised the bar in hair nutrition with the supreme proprietary blend of S3. Each of the clinically proven ingredients work together synergistically to replenish the system of possible nutrient deficiencies that could be contributing to hair loss.
