My income and stats report last month proved to be very popular and so I have decided to carry on publishing this on a monthly basis. I had a better month in May than April, there were a few more sponsored posts and also two advertising commission payments.
During May my blog received 16,863 page views, 9,572 of which were from unique users. I finished the month with a domain authority of 26, a Tots100 ranking of 199, Foodies100 ranking of 105 and a Snapchat score of 862. My followings on the 1st June were as follows :
Sponsored post fees – £216.50
Paypal fees – £1.39 (annoyingly I get charged when companies pay me via Paypal)
Total income : £325.32
On top of the income I received around £115 worth of products to promote/review.
Total income + review items : £440.32
I’m not really sure what to expect income wise next month, I don’t have much in the pipeline at the moment which is always a bit worrying. I do have £265 of fees outstanding which will hopefully be paid out in June.
I’m not going to set any targets this month because Aria is still waking up during the evenings meaning I don’t get much time blogging.
I have made the decision to stop accepting low paid sponsored posts for follow links and start giving my blog the respect that it deserves. As a result I am expecting a drop in my income for a little while, but I am hoping that it will eventually result in bigger and better opportunities. I’m receiving a regular income from my new job so (hopefully) can afford to be more selective about what I decide to promote.
