March 2017 Blog Income Report

This Month’s Top Post: DIY Cinder Block Garden for Small Yards– 308 Views

This Month’s Runner Up: February 2017 Blog Income Report  – 281 Views

This month was absolutely crazy for me.  We had over 20 showings on the house and almost all of my free time outside of work was spent doing something for the house.  I did manage to get my April posts ready despite having a rough schedule.

Somehow, even though I wasn’t able to work much on the blog in March, I ended up with the most page-views I’ve had recently.  I’ve only ever had one higher month which was just a fluke where two of my posts stumbled over 1000 views in a day.  I also had quite a high month for income compared to normal.  I’ll take it!

Last month, my goal was to get all of the posts for April ready and get pins scheduled on Tailwind.  I’m almost there.  My posts are ready but I’m a bit behind on Tailwind.  Hopefully by the time this post goes live I will have it all scheduled.

I didn’t do anything to increase followers this month which is much different than usual.  Usually, I participate in a few threads to gain followers each month, but I just didn’t have time.  I”d like to be able to do this again next month since it appears that April will be a bit of a break: hopefully.

My goals for April, my birthday month, is to get all of the posts ready for May and June and participate in a few follow threads.  I want to get two months ahead because we will be moving in May or very early June and I know that packing will take up most of my free time.  If I can get the posts going then I can focus on packing and just maintaining the blog.  I am so ready for July where I can be back to normal.

    I wish I would have put ads up from day 1 of blogging. Every little bit helps! You talked about scheduling posts for Tailwind. I just found a free tool (up to 100 posts) called RecurPost where you can set it and forget it. Your posts go into a que, and they get posted over and over again. It only connects with Facebook and Twitter though. I love it because I don’t have to schedule all my tweets in Buffer anymore. I just schedule once, and done!
