Posts Published

In July I managed to publish 9 posts which was great compared to last month’s measly 3! I’ve spent more time writing this month getting back to focus. This is why working on the farm suits me right now, no taking work home with me!

This month’s posts have been:

All of my most viewed posts for the month were published this month!

Income Breakdown

  • Sponsored Posts: 0 jobs
  • Ads: 37% towards to the minimum payout. This will roll over to next month and is an increase of 36.3% compared to last month’s 0.7% (Adsense).
  • Social Media Advertising Packages: 2 jobs (80% of monthly income).
  • Affiliates: 1.1% towards the minimum payout. This will roll over to next month and is no change from last month (Amazon).
  • Products: 1 product (20% of monthly income)

In total, I have completed 3 jobs in July. This means my total income (not including the earnings that have to roll over) was 37% less than last month. I’m not too sad about that though as I did have less time to approach brands and PRs.

July Goals Reflection

  • I wanted to build more professional relationships. I am now in contact with more people who are in both the travel and mental health industries.
  • I wanted to have more relevant ads. I haven’t managed to personalise them as much as I wanted to yet.
  • I wanted to earn more money than I did in June. This didn’t happen but at least I still earned something.

August Goals

  • I want to focus more on gaining sponsored post opportunities, especially in the travel industry.
  • I want to be more effective in marketing my affiliate links.
