Had you told me a year ago that in one month I’d be leaving my full-time job in banking to pursue a blogging career; that I would actually make money blogging, I’d of thought you were nuts. Truth be told, I thought because I didn’t know anything about computers, I’d never be able to blog successfully. I also thought I’d never know how to make money on a brand new blog.
I’m happy to say, I was wrong.
Now, I have two blogs and I’m doing the first income report for A Jar Full Of Change to show earnings for the month of March.
Why Would I Share My Blogs Income?
Income Reports are what inspired me to start a blog.
I used to feel trapped and caged in by a job that literally sucked the life out of me. I had hopes and dreams that I thought I’d never have the time or income to achieve.
Blogging is changing that for me. I finally see a future where I’M in control instead of working to make someone else happy.
For that reason, I feel like the question should be, “why wouldn’t I share my blog’s income?”.
If there is:
- One mom out there searching for a way to leave her job.
- A woman desperate to stand on her own two feet.
- Anyone looking for a way to earn more money.
I want to show you that YOU CAN.
*Right now, through this link, you can set up your site for $3 – This is the best deal on hosting, domain name, and email I’ve seen in a while so don’t wait too long.( I pay $10/mo.) You may be wondering why you would pay for hosting when you can get it for free elsewhere… It’s because you don’t want to be limited in ways to earn money and your content will truly be your own. Free sites tell you what you can and cannot do with your work. Trust me; you do not want that.
How Did My Blog Earn Money?
Affiliate Marketing is when you receive a commission for promoting a product or service within your blog posts, and this class has taught me all I know.
It has been more valuable than I ever dreamed and it’s way more than just a class on affiliate marketing.
For starters, the support from the Facebook group is mind blowing.
It is full of “top bloggers” and share day has proven to be crazy beneficial. Every time my post gets shared by one of them, it goes viral.
As a result, I’m starting to earn money while I sleep.
Nothing will show you how to make money on a brand new blog more than this class.
March 2017 Blog Income Report
Affiliate Income: $158.35
Total Pageviews for March 2017: 1,903
Social Media Stats March 2017
Pinterest: 385 Followers
I started a separate Pinterest account for A Jar Full of Change and grew it to 385 in the first month.
I was torn between a new one or somehow incorporating this into my other account with 4,000 followers. In the end, I chose to go with new and am hoping I don’t regret it.
I’m using BoardBooster to automate some things and am manually doing the rest. I’m using the same strategy that has grown my other blog to over 50,000 page views per month and keeping my fingers crossed it works with the new one.
Facebook: 32 Likes
Honestly, I’ve not been focusing a lot on my Facebook page.
I believe focusing on one, two tops, social media accounts at a time is more productive than focusing on all of them. Once one is doing well and you’ve pretty much mastered it, then it’s okay to move on to another one.
For now, Pinterest is my number one focus because it is my number one source of traffic.
Twitter: 228 Followers
Like Facebook, my Twitter account has not been a primary focus of growth.
When I write a new blog post, I’ll post it to all social media accounts, but I’ll continue to focus on Pinterest.
Blog Goals for April 2017
- Page Posts – 4
- Page Views – 3,000
- Pinterest Followers – 500
- Facebook Likes – 50
- Twitter Followers – 400
- Income – $300.00
I purchased Elite Blog Academy in December and am currently working through it very slowly and deliberately. So far, it’s been a crucial part in setting up A Jar Full of Change. If you are a beginner blogger, I highly recommend at least getting on the email list. Even it provides a mind-blowing amount of value.
