Takeaways This Month
Yep you read that right! We lost $910.55. Bah. You can’t always have good months right? My computer decided it didn’t really want to work anymore so we purchased a new one. Which has helped my stress level tremendously. I’m not constantly upset that my computer froze or it’s being super slow. Technically I was still working part time during April so the income wasn’t too bad if you don’t factor in the expenses. Ha.
January you usually always have a spike in traffic and then it seems to decrease for a few months. My stats continue to decrease and I will be trying different ways to increase this. My plan for this will be to continue posting regular and awesome content on the blog, increase posting to social media (mostly Pinterest), utilize Instagram and Google+ more. Also, increase mailing list, increasing link back to older posts, and work more with other bloggers.
Goals currently and from last month:
- Post more often- was getting better but then had an off week. Striving for at least 2-3 posts per week plus the blog hop.
- Increase sponsored content- working on this still.
- Increase traffic- ugh we will talk about that
- Work on email list- continue
- Continue working on writing an e-book
New Posts This Month:
