May 2017 Blog Income Report

This Month’s Top Post: Laundry Hack– August 2016– 429 Views

This Month’s Runner Up: April 2017 Blog Income Report  – 257 Views

Just like last month, I saw a decline in page views.  I’m still quite impressed with the amount of page views the blog had for my minimal effort.  I didn’t share my normal amount of pins on Pinterest and I didn’t share as much as I usually do on Facebook.

Last month I started getting requests to guest post on the blog which couldn’t have come at a better time!  I now have 4 guest posts either posted or scheduled. This shows me that the blog has hit a new high even if the stats have gone down a bit.

On the home front, we get to move into our house this week!  So, I’m going to be crazily organizing and setting up the house because in a little over three weeks Nick and I are getting married!  Crazy Summer.

I have definitely been missing the blog though.  I’m excited to cook in the new house and share my recipes.  I’m excited to share my new garden, and all of the decorating and such.  I’m going to continue posting on Tuesdays only through the end of July and hopefully will be able to pick back up with my regular blogging schedule in August.

Last month I talked about  behind behind on Tailwind.  Even after getting caught up, I am back to being behind.  I’ve decided that that’s okay and this summer I’m going to just do what I have the time to do.

I did not get all of the posts scheduled for the next two months but I am pretty close.  I have the four posts for June scheduled as I usually schedule a month in advance.  In July, I just need to do a house update and then the blog income report.  Hopefully in July after the honeymoon I will be able to get my normal posts ready for August.

Happy Summer!

April 2017 Blog Income Report

This Month’s Top Post: March 2017 Blog Income Report– 241 Views

This Month’s Runner Up: Say Goodbye to Living Paycheck to Paycheck: Building the Foundation  – 213 Views

Last month I posted about how crazy the month was with all of the showings.  Well, April was even crazier outside of the blog.  We closed on the house we are selling, started prepping for our wedding, and started moving some stuff over to my parent’s house where we have to stay for a week and a half this month before our house is ready.

This month I definitely saw the decline in growth in the blog stats.  But, I also started getting a lot more email traffic this month.  This month, Wayfair asked me to create a featured post for them.  Unfortunately, I had to decline because it just wasn’t possible to do what they wanted while my house is in moving disarray. I also had three people ask to guest post on my blog this month!  I’ve had quite a few ask before but nobody had ever actually written a post.  I now have two guest posts scheduled.  One for May and one for June.  Still waiting to see if the third will end up submitting a post.

Last month I mentioned being a bit behind on Tailwind.  I got caught up and am now back to being a bit behind of where I want to be.  As long as I can keep it afloat through the move I’ll be good though.

I also hoped to get all of the posts for the next two months scheduled but I’ve had very limited time to think about the blog.  So, I decided that I am going to alter my posting schedule for the next few months of Moving and Wedding events.  Instead of posting every Tuesday and Saturday, I will only be posting every Tuesday.  I will resume my regular schedule in August.

That’s all for this month!  Wish me luck for maintaining the blog in May during the temporary move!

February 2017 Blog Income Report

This Month’s Top Post: Ready to Eat Freezer Meals – 326 Views

This Month’s Runner Up: January 2017 Blog Income Report – 304 Views

This was the first month that I didn’t write any new posts.  Well, I did film one video and edit it this month.  But, other than that, I had all of my posts ready to go.  I am so glad I did that because this month I needed all of my free time to go towards getting ready to sell my home.  I’m so ready to be just living my life as normal in the new house.  But, one step at a time.  For the next few months I’m just going to hobble along in blog land.

Last month, I mentioned that I was going into a slower time for me.  Haha.  I was definitely mistaken!  I was still able to complete both of my goals though!  I had a goal of joining 18 new Pinterest boards.  I joined 21!  This month I hope to see an increase because of all of the new groups.  But I am a bit behind in scheduling posts so we will see.

I also got some new Etsy downloadables posted. They are the pink kitchen recipe cards and labels below.

My goal for March is to maintain the blog.  I need to get all of my posts for April ready and make sure to get all of my Pinterest posts scheduled.  This month is going to be crazy with having to drop everything at any moment to show the house.  Wish me luck!
