Hello! Welcome to my Blogging and Income Report for January 2018! It’s difficult for me to believe we are already halfway through the second month of the year; time is just flying by! My January was really busy (more on that later) but I’m happy to report I had solid numbers for the month.
Blogging and Income Report – January 2018
Starting with last months goals. I’ve been working on my goal setting for the year but need to put some final deadlines on it before I can say I have a solid plan. My February is turning out to be much busier than I had anticipated plus I currently have Olympic Fever which makes it tough to concentrate on work! But my goal setting calendar is in progress.
January is historically good for me; people are coming out of their holiday slump and starting to search the internet for “Disney weddings.” My numbers are up 25% compared to December which is great!
My top referral sources for January were the usuals – Google, Pinterest, Direct traffic, Facebook, and Bing.
Other January Happenings
Here’s what I earned in January 2018. I list the earnings by network, and then state the specific brands/shops in parenthesis. If I didn’t make any money through a specific affiliate channel, I will leave it off the list (all those zeros could get depressing)!
(Keep in mind I’m only sharing the revenue I generate through my websites and social media accounts.)
Affiliates (some of the links below contain my affiliate code)
Total revenue for January 2018 = $1876.55.
– Total revenue the previous month = $1797.43.
– Difference: $79.12
It’s always good to see my revenue a little higher! With no sponsored posts in January, I was saved by the addition of Fuze360, which offers some affiliate ads for Disney. And Disney just happens to be my jam, so it’s a lucrative partnership so far.
Things I need to work on:
In February I need to finalize my goal outline for the year, finally get my Joy Social e-book published (it’s soooooo close to being done), and I’m looking into doing a few tweaks to my website design.
That’s it for now! Thank you for reading. Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll try my best to answer! I also would like to know if the information I’m providing is helpful or what else you would want to see/learn from an income report. Let me know how I can help you! Have a great month, everyone!
