It’s my blogaversary! It’s official. I have been blogging at bexcapades for a whole year. It feels like a big achievement so I wanted to commemorate it with a post of it’s own. It feels like I’ve been blogging forever now & it has made me fall in love with writing again.
So, in 365 days of blogging what have I achieved?
Blog Views: 26,172
Pinterest: 1,829 (69,000 monthly reach)
I am so proud of myself. The numbers might be small compared to a few, but big compared to others. It’s not the main thing though. I have enjoyed creating the content, talking with other bloggers, making friends (sorry mum, but I’ve got internet friends!) and pushing myself to keep going even when I couldn’t be bothered (eek).
Since June, I have been earning money from my blog. It is not a lot by any stretch of the imagination but it is nice to know that people are willing to pay for me to write! I have 5 Blogging Income Reports which detail how I earned money that month. Altogether, including what I have earned this month so far, I have earned the equivalent of 2.5 days as a Newly Qualified Teacher (my usual income). Not much for 5 months work but the last 2 months have been better individually than the first 3 combined so I am optimistic that this will continue to grow. Find out how to work with me.
I have written about a variety of topics but my main two focuses are Travel & Mental Health. I have also discussed blogging techniques, lifestyle, saving money and Christmas. I try & post as often as I can.
Overall, I have published 121 posts. This works out at between 2-3 posts per week.
I am excited to see what the next year of blogging has in store for me & I have a lot of travel content planned! I am even through to Round 2 of the UK Blog Awards so when the voting opens, I will add a link!
Thank you for the views, comments & especially shares! Here’s to the next year!
