Hello! Welcome to my Blogging and Income Report for June 2018! I know I say this a lot but time seems to be moving so fast. We are officially halfway through the year and I’m having trouble understanding where the time has gone. I’ve been keeping so busy, but as for the blog … well … the summer slump is here, and it’s legit. I had another rough month but things are already starting to look up for July so I’m crossing my fingers.
Blogging and Income Report – June 2018
Starting with last months goals. I really tried to get my page views up and I had a little boost from the Disney Weddings TV show (people tend to search Google for “Disneyland weddings” when an episode airs). Aside from that I tried to push my links a little more on Twitter and Facebook. I think the efforts saved from from having a disastrous month, but I will continue to make more effort.
Ack, this is painful. For the third month in a row my numbers are down. Boo. Not sure what else I can say about it.
My top referral sources for June are the usuals – Google, Pinterest, Direct traffic, Facebook, and Bing. At least my traffic is predictable.
Other June Happenings
June started off with our Jamaica adventure! I also attended two media days: For INCREDIBLES 2 and ANT-MAN AND THE WASP. Finally I explored the re-opening of Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure.
Here’s what I earned in June 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.)
Campaign Bonuses – $55
Affiliates (some of the links below contain my affiliate code)
Amazon – $19.48
ShopSense – $0.34
CJ – $3.37 (Hot Topic)
Share-a-Sale – $36.37 (Redbubble, Jane.com)
Awin – $147.18 (Etsy)
Pepperjam – $1.75 (Shutterfly)
Fuze360 – $3.50
Moolah Courses – $24.80
Getaway Today – $20.00
Total revenue for June 2018 = $1042.59.
– Total revenue the previous month = $1557.39.
– Difference: -$514.80
This big drop was bound to happen at some point. I didn’t have any sponsored articles this month and no big affiliate pushes. Truth be told, this is my lowest blog revenue month in over a year and it doesn’t feel good.
Things I need to work on:
I’m going on vacation (again!) later on in July so really my sole focus is to get my blog, social media, and podcast prepped and ready for while I’m gone. Wish me luck!
