March 2016 Blogging Income Report

April 5, 2016Kelly Baum

March was quite an eventful month! I’ll admit, I’ve fallen off the blogging wagon a bit now that graduation is coming up so quickly but I am doing my best to post at least a few times per week. I’ve decided to start posting about my monthly earnings and traffics stats because I think it gives a good idea if you’re curious about what a modest blogger makes – I’m not rich by any means but I do have a passion for blogging and love to share it! And, I’m also hoping that if I make some short term goals and share them with the internet, I might feel more accountable and inclined to fulfill them!

March 2016 Metrics

March 2016 Blogging Income Report

Overall March’s metrics were down by about 9% – not a terribly huge loss in traffic but I’m definitely looking to bump it up this month. I’m running my anniversary giveaway to give my numbers a boost, especially since I’m going to be beyond busy in the new few weeks with graduation and my big move!

March 2016 Earnings
Affiliate links: $1.85
Sponsored posts: $285
Youtube: $3.80

As you can see, March was an outlier month for me – I don’t typically make so little but I really have not been on my blogging game as of late. So here’s some goals that I’ve set myself for April:

-Secure at least two more sponsored blog posts
-End with at least 3,500 pageviews
-Bump up my returning visitor rate to at least 12%

I’m excited to report back on May 2 as to how this went! I already know that this month’s earnings will be higher since I completed a lot of sponsored posts in March and the turn around time for payment is usually 30 days.

 

Pin me!

So here’s to a successful April! I have a lot of really exciting posts planned and I’m really excited to see what new opportunities this month will bring!

Thanks for reading,
