Making My First $1000 From Blogging

I’ve been blogging for almost a year now, but I haven’t gotten too much into income reports like some of the other bloggers you will find. I just didn’t want to report $20 here and there, and I was more interested in writing. That is my true passion. Writing about motherhood. My goal is to continue to write and develop my writing, but also have my blog provide an income. When the day came that I added up the income streams, and they were over $1,000 I couldn’t believe it! Skip to the bottom of the post for the breakdown of the income streams. this post contains affiliate links.  When I started this journey, I definitely didn’t start the right way to make money. If I did, I would’ve hit this mark a lot sooner. But, I learned and wrote about that to help you all as well. Most of…

My Massive Traffic Boost: 6k to 40k Page views in Two Months

this post contains affiliate links.  I wrote a post a couple weeks ago about the two investments I made in my blog, which substantially increased my traffic. I am writing again about my traffic because I want you all to understand how completely honest and sincere I am, that these two resources have dramatically increased my page views. In the previous post, Pageview Breakthrough: How I Went from 6k to over 17k in One Month, I talk about the giant leap in page views I accomplished for April. Update: I am above 50k pageviews and made my first $1,000!!! Making My First $1000 From Blogging I can’t tell you all how excited I am that I blew April out of the water, and hit a milestone of 40k pageviews for May! When I was reading other page view reports from bloggers detailing 2-3k hits a day, I thought it would be…

Pageview Breakthrough: How I Went from 6k to over 17k in One Month

Cracking the code for page views is an obsession I failed to achieve. I couldn’t do it! I was stuck for months around 6k or less visits. I needed help. I finally made some investments for my blog, one being a Pinterest strategy book, and the other specifically a traffic book. Update: I am above 50k pageviews and made my first $1,000!!!  Making My First $1000 From Blogging I bought an eBook to help me with Pinterest. I literally was failing, and not understanding how to pin to group boards. This eBook transformed my game, and I got my first viral pin the month I bought that book.

How I Turned $17.99 Into Over $300 With One Blog Post

I was the blogger who was obsessed with reading income reports from other bloggers. Most of us are working hard when we first start our blogs, to figure out the famous equation. What plus what will bring in a decent amount of money. By studying other bloggers income reports, I was able to understand the different income streams that are out there. But, many bloggers, myself included, where always wanting me to buy something. They mentioned their referrals to Convertkit or BoardBooster, and I thought, great, but I’m not making any money, so I can’t buy anything yet. Update: I am above 50k pageviews and made my first $1,000!!!  Making My First $1000 From Blogging A couple months later, my pride was going down, and I was desperate to get my traffic up. I had been blogging six months and made $50. I found Carly’s book, Pinteresting Strategies, and because…

Let’s Start Your Blog and Make Money Now By Doing What I Should’ve Done

Okay, this is the post I wish I read when I first started blogging. When I first started, I was so excited to write, photograph and merge a passion into a business. Writing, marketing and all-things motherhood are basically ho I am at that core. My degree is in Communications, I lived and breathed entrepreneurship in college, and I still have a small web-design and online marketing company that I take select clients for. That being said, I did not set myself up correctly to create a passive income from blogging in the beginning. I’ve solved that problem finally, after 8 months of blogging, and you definitely don’t need to wait that long. This is the only post you need to read to create a blog that increases in traffic and income each month. And no, I didn’t invest in expensive courses to do this. I may do that soon, but…

The Alternative to Adsense For Bloggers: Finally Make Some Money!

So, I’ve mentioned a few times in my post, I am a new blogger. I am just shy of 6 months blogging very part time. As in, I have a 6 month old baby, two toddler boys, no steady nanny and we’ve moved across country…so let’s just say my blog gets the short-end of the stick when it comes to attention. **EDIT! I signed up without realizing that AdBuff requires an average of 2k pageviews per day. I was able to get the accunt going, insert ads and build some income, then to have them close my account. As of last month, I exceed their requirements, so I am resigning up!  You might also like: My Massive Traffic Boost: 6k to 40k Page views in Two Months Pageview Breakthrough: How I Went from 6k to over 17k in One Month How I Turned $17.99 Into Over $300 With One Blog…

How I Went From 0-60 Email Subscribers In Two Days

​I’ve always been daunted by the idea of building an email list. What will I email them? What do I have to offer that people are interested in? What valuable information can I offer as a freebie incentive? If you want to skip straight to the questions, sign up here! Get The Questions As a new blogger, the task of coming up with an offer that will help other bloggers is hard because we aren’t yet confident in our abilities. Let’s Start Your Blog and Make Money Now By Doing What I Should’ve Done Well, it took me quite some time to craft something. I ran multiple ideas over in my head, and basically, I didn’t put pressure on myself to build an email list right away. With pressure, I was afraid my offer wouldn’t be genuine or just a cheesy attempt to get sign ups. I focused on creating content I loved first.…

How To Connect With Brands For Sponsorship on Instagram

Instagram, as I’ve said in a couple other posts, is my favorite social media platform because it is aesthetic, and I love photos.Many bloggers see Instagram as another method to build a following and traffic source…which it is, but if that’s all you see it as, you’re missing out on a lot. I’ve just gone over the 1k mark. That’s huge when you are just starting out on Instagram, and I’ve been able to work with large brands like JORD Watches, Smile Brilliant, DockATot, Lillebaby, Finn and Emma and more. I’ve also connected with smaller, local brands to work together, where I’ve either been paid to post, or posted in exchange for the product, depending on the brand’s policies. You don’t have to have a large following for the brands you love to be interested in you. My account is proof! I also launched my Instagram eBook, Irresistible + Authentic…

How I Got My First Viral Pin

As a new blogger, I am basically doing a trial-and-error method when it comes to getting my content out to readers. I actually love writing on all things motherhood and lifestyle, and taking the photos is another passion of mine, but it’s not that fun when no one knows or reads because they don’t know you exist. So, I too am working to make my blog visible.

I focused on building content, and my Instagram first. Instagram is a revenue source and business all on its own, so I’ve been over there working with brands and connecting with more and more people on that platform. If you are looking to…
