My blog mojo finally seems to have returned, even this week while battling a Winter cold and flu I have managed to post EVERY SINGLE DAY! Can I get a round of applause please? While September wasn’t a great month income wise I certainly made up for it with review items, I received some fantastic goodies and am looking forward to sharing them with you soon. The sponsored posts seem to be picking up again and I am really hoping for some good income months going forward, especially in the run up to Christmas.
During September my blog received 13,983 page views 8,798 of which were from unique users. I had hoped for better stats this month as I have been putting more effort into my blog, but I haven’t been putting much effort into promoting it which I guess is why my stats aren’t great. I finished the month with a domain authority of 28, a Tots100 ranking of 256, Foodies100 ranking of 127 and a Snapchat score of 1,627. My followings on the 1st September are as follows :
Sponsored blog post fees – £50
Sponsored Instagram fees – £82.36
Blogfest Ticket – £75
Facebook Advertising – £3.09
Total income less expenses : £52.37
On top of the income I received approximately £613.29 worth of products to promote/review.
Total income, less expenses + review items : £665.66
Review items/products to promote were : JD Williams clothing for me, me&i clothing for Aria, Piccolo pouches, Riverford box, Degustabox, Aldi baby food hamper, Just Us Box, JORD watch, family meal at STRADA Cardiff and a Wow Toys Advent Calendar.
I have outstanding fees totalling £240 which should be paid out in October.
