It’s that time of the month again! April is a brand new blogging month and I’m excited to share my goals for this month, as well as talk about what happened in March!
First, let’s take a look at my March 2016 Blogging Goals
Continue posting at least 3x a week– I think I accomplished this for most of March. Here lately I am only getting two posts done a week, but it’s better than nothing. I am about to have a baby! Keep plugging along with my courses and updating posts with the Skyrocket eBook– Got this one complete! Keep sending out newsletters/tweak content– Yes, I have been sending out newsletters, and I asked a question to help me with planning my editorial calendar. I was so excited to get some great answers from my awesome subscribers!
- Submit at least one guest post – I did not get this done. I had every intention of doing it, but I actually ended up really, really busy with sponsored posts, so I just ran out of time!
March was a great month for me! My pageviews actually went from around 29,000 to a little over 40,000. A large reason for that was that a couple of my sponsored posts ended up being promoted on Facebook and Pinterest. I fully expect my pageviews to fall a little in April because of that, but it was really fun to get that spike!
I switched my ad network to Media Vine. I’m loving them so far. If you remember I was using SwayyEm. Horrible mistake. They aren’t paying their bloggers. I gave them one chance to pay me, and when payment didn’t come through when they said it would, I took their ads down. I went back to Adsense before switching completely over to Media Vine.
March 2016 Income
Ad Revenue: $54.81 (Adsense, Media.net, and two days of Media Vine. Obviously, Adsense was not optimized)
Sponsored Posts: $710
Affiliate Income: $21.27
March 2016 Expenses:
BoardBooster – $5
Photography Equipment – $116.02
Net Income – $665.06
April 2016 Blogging Goals
- Post at least 2x a week
- Keep sending out weekly newsletter
- Fill editorial calendar through May
- Promote my good posts (I’m horrible at promoting)
I’m taking April really slow because I’m having a baby this month. No need to put too much pressure on myself.
