Posts Published in October

This month, I tried posting every single day for Mental Health Awareness Month, whilst also posting travel & blogging related posts too! I managed to post 22 posts, compared to the 7 in September. I didn’t quite manage 31 Mental Health posts but I tried my best!

4 of this month’s posts were in my most popular of the month.

October Income Breakdown

  • Sponsored Posts: 1 job: (68% of monthly income)
  • Ads: 16% towards the minimum payout (this is a really slow income, it takes a lot of views to even earn 1p but I do get a slightly better amount when ads are clicked which doesn’t happen very often, ha)!
  • Affiliates: 1 payout: (SiteGround); 1.1% towards the minimum payout (Amazon). (32% of monthly income)

This has been a good month for my blogging though September is still my best month so far! This month, my blogging income was less than 1 day’s work as a Newly Qualified Teacher (my usual income). I haven’t actively been promoting myself and reaching out to companies as I was focusing on writing more content.

October Goals Reflection

  • I wanted to post a Mental Health Awareness post every day but I only managed 18. This was an ambitious goal though when I only decided 1 week before!
  • I wanted to learn more about affiliate marketing on Pinterest and though I have started to learn, I haven’t fully implemented any strategies yet. I did make my first affiliate sale on Facebook for Siteground though which I was very excited about!

November Goals

  • To upload some of my back-dated Bali content from August.
  • To contact Australian East Coast Companies to see if they are interested in potential collaborations.
  • To start implementing affiliate marketing strategies for Pinterest (and trial Tailwind and see if it makes a difference).
