Blogging Income & Stats February 2017

Blogging Income & Stats February 2017

February hasn’t been a great month blogging income wise, it isn’t that I’ve not been getting the work, it’s just that people aren’t paying. I have quite a bit outstanding now so am hoping for a bumper month in March to make up for the slow February.

My stats have gone back down quite a bit following the increase in January, I guess all those people searching out Slimming World recipes have given up on their diet now! This combined with having a day of down time on the blog when moving over to WordPress and being a little poorly hasn’t helped.

 

My blog received 15,524 page views 9,683 of which were from unique users. I finished the month with a domain authority of 28 and a Klout score of 70. Last month I mentioned that I was chuffed to have broken the top 100 of Tots100, this month I am even happier to report that I am now number 69!

 

My followings on the 1st March are as follows :

 

Facebook : 917
Twitter : 6,369
Instagram : 19,103
Pinterest : 900
Google+ : 404
Bloglovin’ : 1,151
YouTube : 151

 

My earnings during February were :

 

Sponsored blog post fees – £295.16
Commission/referral fees – £153.11
Total income – £448.27

 

less

 

New blog theme – £39
Hosting fees – £4.49
Paypal fees – £4.76 (annoyingly I get charged when companies pay me via Paypal)
Social media scheduling programme – £9.95
Photoshop – £8.57
iCloud Storage – £0.79

Total Expenses : £67.56

Total income less expenses : £380.71

On top of the income I received the following to promote/review.

Pen Heaven Journal, scooter, balance bike & helmet, jumpers & changing bag, Degustabox and Peppa Pig World tickets.

I currently have outstanding sponsored post fees totalling £430 so I am hoping that they will all be paid in March along with a few other new projects that I am currently in talks for.
