August blogging monthly income report

Followers & Stats

Twitter: 10,200+

Pinterest: 1,500+ (39k monthly viewers)

Instagram: 1,300+

Facebook: 260+

Monthly Blog Views: 1,655

I had a 3 week holiday this month so I didn’t promote my blog on social media as much as I usually do. I also didn’t post as often as usual. Both of these have contributed to lower monthly views however I had had more referrals from google this month than any other month meaning I’m starting to get higher up on the google search rankings!

This month I changed my Instagram so instead of having a personal & a blog account, I combined them. Now I’m only using @rebeccaburke95.

Referrals

  • Pinterest – (33%)
  • Twitter – (20%)
  • Search Engines – (5%)
  • Facebook – (4%)
  • Instagram – (1%)
  • Other – (37%)

Posts Published

In August, I posted 4 posts compared to last month’s 10!

This month’s posts have been:

    Sponsored Posts: 0 jobs
    Ads: 3.7% towards the minimum payout. This will roll over to next month.
    Social Media Advertising Packages: 1 job – (100% of monthly income)
    Affiliates: 1.1% towards the minimum payout. This will roll over to next month.

I only had 1 job this month so it was lower than previous months. It was less than 1 day’s work as a Newly Qualified Teacher (my usual work). This considered, I do have work lined up for September than could make it my best month yet so hopefully it all goes to plan.

August Goals Reflection

    I wanted to get a sponsored opportunity this month but I didn’t reach out as I was on holiday.
    I wanted to market my affiliate links more effectively but I spent my time writing new posts rather than rejuvenating old posts.

September goals

  • To publish at least 8 blog posts.
  • To earn more than I did in July.
  • To market my affiliate links more effectively.

    Great to see your reach continue to grow (even if it’s not as fast as you’d hoped!)

    Looking at your ‘Work With Me’ page, I wonder if you could reduce your number of packages down to two or three? There are a lot of options and it’s almost overwhelming. I think you’re on the right track, though — laying out exactly what social media services you’ll provide for the price.

    Look forward to seeing next months report!

      I definitely agree with you. I’ve cut it down to 1 Week package & 2 monthly packages for now, I’ll see how it goes & reassess whether I need to change it up again or not. Thank you for the advice!
