January 2019 Blog Traffic & Income Report
Gretchen here, with The Centsible Home’s 16th income report!
Its only, you know, 6 months later – sorry!
I started doing these reports with hopes that I could teach those of you reading a few things about blogging. That you could learn from the lessons I learned, not make my mistakes, and implement efficient solutions in your own business.
1 year and a half ago when I started these, I made a grand total of $1,071.18.
A great start, but not even close to the average $10,000 months I have now.
I am certainly no expert – nor am I making the most money, but I have been blogging for 6 years, which is like 60 years in blogging years, and in that time, I’ve learned a lot that I hope you can learn from too!
The reality of being an entrepreneur – in blogging, a brick and mortar biz, or something else – it that your life moves at warp speed. You constantly feel like you have 17 plates spinning in the air that you have to keep moving, and there is no margin for error.
Add in the internet changing even faster, and you have to realize that you’ll never catch up.
Marketing techniques that work right now may not work in a month. And in a year? Forget them. Social networks are constantly changing for better and worse, new networks are being introduced, and your audience is developing a thicker skin and bullsh*t filter for marketing.
It’s unbelievably exhausting, but if you read my article about 6 qualities of Six-Figure Bloggers you’ll know that there is no way around it – you can only persevere through it.
Through the ups and downs, the hard and the easy, the wins and losses, if you just stay the course, doing your absolute best, you’re going to hit a point where you’ve seen a measure of success and it starts to get easier.
So I started these income reports to help you stick with this crazy thing called blogging.
To encourage you when it gets hard.
To help provide solutions.
To give you the tools you need to find freedom from you blog.
