My Zero Month Blog Income Report

Blogging Tips

So it’s June 1, 2020 and I have officially re-launched my blog. I started a blog last year on pennies while I was in between jobs and sure enough as soon as I got another job I abandoned it. It wasn’t making me any money and I was treating it like a hobby not a business. Recently, I made a BUNCH of changes to help my blog bring in income here’s what I did:

First, I changed my hosting and site. I initially started my blog on Blogger because it was free. It was a headache and it looked low budget. If I wanted to keep people looking around on my site, it had to be pretty. So I made the painful switch to www.wordpress.org. I did a bit of research before I made the switch and I took the DIY approach and I regret it. It was time consuming and a headache. If you’re not a tech person (like me), hire someone. Fiverr is a great place to find help for a low price. I ended up going there to find someone to help me clean up the mess.

Second, I changed my hosting to Bluehost. This was a no-brainer because it is integrated with WordPress and they offer free email.

Third, I joined affiliate programs. There is a ton of ones out there so find ones that go with your niche.

Fourth, I invested in my blog. I signed up for Tailwind and it has been a game changer. I am getting so much exposure on Pinterest. I also went to Etsy and bought some social media art to make my pins more attractive.

I am convinced that doing these things gave me the push that I needed. I made $9.90 selling products from my website and $114.84 from selling printables on Etsy. My total blog income for May 2020 was $124.74.

Overall, I think these changes were much needed and overdue. I feel like my blog looks “ok” for now but I know I am going to upgrade it again within a year or so. I was so happy after making these changes that I decided to set some goals. Here are my goals for June:

  • Achieve 1000 monthly page views. I made the switch to WordPress around May 19th and I currently have 238 views for that 12-day period. (up to June 1st).
  • Get 50K Pinterest monthly views. I’m currently at 22.3K.
  • Have 1500 Pinterest followers, I currently have 919. Don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest.
  • Have 30 published blog posts, I currently have 23.
  • Add at least one related content post to every blog post.
  • Grow my email list by 3 subscribers.

So those are my goals for this month. Stay tuned to see how I do! If you’re thinking about starting a blog and you need some motivation check out my post below.
