Today marks the first day of May, which is good and bad. It’s good because this is the month my wife and I get to move into our new house. It won’t be until the end of May, but it’s still this month! On the other hand, it’s bad because this year is going way too quickly. This whole year has just been one giant blur, for whatever reason. I’m hoping things start to slow down this summer, but only time will tell. Anyway, back to the purpose of this post…
If you’re new to my blog or the income and traffic reports that I run, here’s a quick rundown:
Every month, I post the previous month’s income and traffic received on this blog. Why? Because I feel it’s important to stay transparent and accountable for everything I post. Blogging is definitely NOT a get rich quick scheme, regardless of what most people think. My goal is to highlight that and show you the statistics, because they’re very interesting!
You can view the last three reports below:
It’s been a slow month in terms of traffic, but that’s more than likely due to my lack of posts. I only posted 14 articles this month opposed to 17 last month, 18 the month before that, and 25 in January. Most people only read blogs when there is fresh information, which is completely understandable. This month has been a whirlwind in my life, which is what lead to the lack of posts, however, come June everything should start picking up again.
So, how did the numbers look? This month’s visitors stayed relatively consistent with last months, but my views decreased about 9%. As I mentioned, the lack of posts this month is most likely solely responsible for this.
The final numbers:
|Views per Visitor||2.24||2.20||2.24||1.96|
There’s not much to talk about regarding my blog’s income this month. In fact, there’s 0 to talk about. Ha! You see what I did there? I earned and spent $0 this month, leaving me with a net income of $0 from this blog. Hilarious, I know. Overall this year, my blog is $40 in the black. Not bad!
And the final numbers are:
April has been my slowest month of 2015, but I only have myself to blame for that. There has simply been too much going on in the real world that’s kept me from my blog. Sad, I know. As a matter of fact, my manufactured spending for this month has been under 10k! I don’t think it’s ever been that low…
Anyway, that’s all for April. Come back next month for May’s report.
