March was a huge month for me as a blogger. I’ve earned the most I’ve ever made through my blog. As well as running my blog, I also work full time and have a social life. I am a little nervous about publishing this blog income report but I believe to avoid other bloggers getting undervalued, it helps if I’m transparent about what I can earn in a month. I also thought it might be interesting in general for others to read. I’m quite a nosey/curious person and I enjoy reading reports on what other bloggers have earned.
March 2017 Blog Income: £315.43
This month has been the busiest and biggest in terms of my blog income. I’m also owed £255 from sponsored opportunities which haven’t paid me yet. This may be due to their finance departments or something relating to budgets/the new tax year. £250+ is still a brilliant start to my April 2017 income.
I usually set myself some kind of personal target each month, but never usually in writing. Later in this blog post, you will see a list of goals and targets I have set myself for April. I want these goals to be achievable.
March 2017 Statistics:
Page views: 1,394
Domain authority: 25
Twitter profile visits: 3,309
Tweet impressions: 49.3K
Twitter followers: 2,040
New twitter followers: 64
Some of my posts in March:
York Gin Festival 2017 (My most popular blog post in March)
Goals for April!
- Add 1-2 internal links per blog post in April
- Reach 1000 followers on Instagram
- Grow my Pinterest to 200 followers
- Grow Twitter by 50 followers
- Aim for 1,500 views of my blog
I’m considering posting a blog income report as a monthly post, at the beginning of the following month like this one. Working freelance is hard and every month is different. I have to dedicate a lot of time and effort into my blog. I doubt I’ll ever earn as much as I have in March, but you never know. I’m so impressed, as it shows hard work can help me to grow LouiseRoseRailton.com.
