Last month, I said that my goal was to get ahead in January because I was going to have a busy year. What I didn’t realize is that January was going to be my busiest month in my day to day life. Surprisingly, I was still able to get ahead! I got all of my posts done for February and March except the house updates. I’ll make those as new things keep happening at the house.
Since I’m ahead and now I’m headed into a bit of a slower time in my home life, I plan on focusing a bit more on growing the blog. In February, I plan to join more Pinterest groups. I’m currently in 18 groups. It would be nice to double that this month. I also plan on making some new content for Etsy and determining how frequently I want to add content.
Looking forward to a good month!
Thanks for being so open with your income report! I’m trying to take my blog “to the next level” and start making some money from it. If you don’t mind sharing, what Pinterest boards are you part of?
Hi Kaitlin! You can find all of the boards I belong to on my Pinterest page. They are the ones that dont match the design of the other boards. http://Www.Pinterest.com/keepitsimplediy
Thank you! I’ll go check it out now 🙂
Hi Kari! What Ad system do you use on your blog? That’s an amazing amount of money to get for January from ads. Good job!
Hi Jessica! I use Google Analytics. Some months its high and some its really low.
I love seeing realistic income reports that aren’t inflated by things like referring people to your host or something like that. Thanks for sharing!
I def need to start doing whatever your doing
Thanks for showing how you do it. This is something that I am still working on, your post is very helpful.
Thank you for sharing this income report! It’s really useful to see how other bloggers earn money. Congratulations for your achievements!
Thanks for being sooo candid!
Awesome job! I have ads too but don’t do nearly as well. My next step is to try and seek out some additional ad networks. I love your milestone/goals/achievement charts – I’m definitely going to do that! Keep it up girl!
Wow congrats! Thats amazing that you’re able to make $200 from ads with only 4K pageviews. I’m at 20K, yet I’m happy if I even manage to reach $100. Show me your secrets! haha
Well done! I hope you will share some tips for making money online:)
Thanks for sharing your income report! It is so nice having a blogger like you share your report and goals! Some of us are still just starting out and seeing the incremental steps to “making it big” is so nice.
Keep it up!
