Another month has come and gone! As we say goodbye to May I want to start doing something new, and that’s posting income reports! Along with the income reports, I’ll be sharing the goals I’ve set for myself for the upcoming month. I see a lot of bloggers doing this, and I hope that by doing it myself I feel more drive to reach my goals.
I went back and forth about posting my income because quite frankly, it’s nonexistent. However, I want to show smaller bloggers like myself that not everyone is making thousands of dollars a month. I also want to share my income with the hopes of gaining advice from bloggers WHO ARE making thousands of dollars a month. So, if that’s you, please sound off in the comments below. Everyone can learn a thing or two from you!
With that being said, let’s break everything down.
- Google Adwords: $0.51
- Viglink: $0.00
- Etsy: $0.00
- Amazon Affiliates: $0.00
- iPage Affiliate: $0.00
- Total: $.0.51
Yup, I made a whopping $.0.51 this month! Hopefully these numbers increase next month.
- Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop: $10.00
- Etsy Listings: $1.80
- iPage hosting: $3.00
- Total: $14.80
One thing that did increase this month was my traffic! I had set a goal to reach 1,000 page views for the month of May, and I reached that!
- Total Traffic for April: 723 page views
- Total Traffic for May: 1,347
- Total Increase: 624 page views, or a 86.21% increase in page views!
Social Media Stats
- Pinterest Followers: 60
- Instagram Followers: 233
- Twitter Followers: 169
- Email Subscribers: 21. I gained 13 of those subscribers during the month of May.
Goals for June
I’m starting a new job on Monday the 5th of June (yay!), however, that means I will have FAR less time to devote to my blog. There will be some growing pains as I learn how to balance working full time and running a blog (on top of everything else I do). I’m going to cut back from posting twice a week to only posting once a week, as that sounds much more manageable to me. That being said, I would still love to see my blog continue to grow. So, what are my goals?
- Reach 2,000 page views
- Reach 300 Instagram followers
- Post 4 times during June
- Sell 5 prints on my Etsy shop
- Gain 10 more email subscribers
