November of 2017 was my second month of blogging. While I don’t want this blog to be all income reports, I do want to document my progress in hopes of inspiring someone who may be considering starting a blog.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to devote a ton of time to the blog this month with planning for our trip to MD the first week of December and preparing for Thanksgiving. I know December will also be a busy month, so I plan to get back to it the first of the New Year.
In the mean time though, I’m pretty darn happy about the growth. Here are my numbers: October/November
Amazon Clicks: 0/51
Amazon Sales: 0/0
AdSense Income: $0.11/$4.58
Instagram Followers: 294/305
Number of Post: 15/20
I’m really proud of most of these stats. I would really love to see a few sales through Amazon and try to post more frequently. Still though, I want to give myself a break for the holidays to enjoy time with my family. Hopefully I can post at least five more times in December. I’m projecting December to take a bit of a dip in stats as I haven’t worked it quite as hard in the last couple weeks.
There were a couple days that just amazed me. My busiest day had 187 views which is crazy compared to October’s busiest day of 56. I’ve noticed that Wednesday and Thursday are my busiest days, while Sunday is consistently the least busy. I’m still a little concerned that my most popular posts are breastfeeding related. This is definitely something I plan to continue to work on in hopes of finding another topic of interest for my readers.
Also, I went from $0.11 to a whopping $4.58 with Adsense meaning that I grew my ad income by over 4000%. It sounds silly to be excited over $4.58, but I am seriously blown away at the growth. I’m so grateful to all of my readers and all the awesome ladies in the blogging community that share their tips.
After my first month, these were the goals I set for November and December:
Grow email list
New disclosure policy
Research freelance writing
Create a Facebook Page
Create a Twitter
Increase Pinterest Activity
Obviously I have a lot of work to do if I’m going to finish these by the end of the year. Another one of my huge goals was to share my blog with my facebook friends and family. Unfortunately I still haven’t had the courage to do this, but I have noticed that a couple of my subscribers are friends of mine, so that really excites me and I am supper thankful to them.
For this month, I don’t want to set any new goals, instead I want to continue to check off tasks from the list above.
