How I Made Over 10k My First Year Blogging With Sponsored Posts

Landing sponsored posts as a new blogger can seem totally overwhelming. I was able to figure out how to reach brands with a small Instagram account, as well as a new blogger. I made over 10k my first year blogging in purely sponsored posts. Landing sponsored posts can actually be a large part of your income strategy, if you do it correctly.

Creating the Perfect Pinterest Strategy

Well, now that I’ve been blogging a year, I’ve learned so much about Pinterest. I had no idea I would need to become a Pinterest strategist in order to succeed at this whole blog thing. Literally, I dive deep into my Google Analytics, Tailwind analytics and Board Booster stats at times to really understand what the heck is going on. This post contains affiliate links. It took a couple months for my traffic dropping below 100k a month for me to push myself to learn more. I can’t tell you how sad I was when my traffic started dropping, but it taught me so so much, and how to get it to go back up. My traffic dropped mainly because of that darn Hurricane Irma (my manual pinning strategy went out the window with no wifi), traveling, solo parenting, moving and basically having a massive amount of life changes to…

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!
