Blogging Income & Stats March 2017

Blogging Income & Stats March 2017

As I had hoped quite a few of my outstanding payments from January and February came in during March. Thankfully all but one paid without chasing, huge relief as I hate having to chase people.

My stats have taken another big drop and I’m not at all surprised. House viewings, finally selling our house and going on holiday has meant that I’ve taken a lot of time away from blogging and just haven’t had the time to create and promote new content.

During March my blog received 11,635 page views, 7,847 of which were from unique users. I finished the month with a domain authority of 29 and a Klout score of 70. My Tots100 score has dropped slightly but I am still sitting pretty at 72, while I remain in the top 100 I can happily cope with a drop of three, although I am quite concerned about the next update due to my huge drop in page views.

My followings on the 2nd April (I forgot to jot down the figures yesterday!) were as follows:

Facebook : 946
Twitter : 6,705
Instagram : 20,652
Pinterest : 1,000
Google+ : 404
Bloglovin’ : 1,153
YouTube : 163

My earnings during March were:

Sponsored blog post fees – £692
Commission/referral fees – £25

Total income – £717

less

Hosting fees – £9.98
Paypal fees – £7.44 (I get charged when companies pay me via Paypal)
Animation & Header image – £100
Photoshop – £8.57
iCloud Storage – £0.79
Social media scheduling programme – £9.98

Total Expenses : £136.76

Total income less expenses : £580.24

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

Degustabox, Trespass walking boots, Huntleys shoes & outfit for Aria, Blade & Rose clothing for Aria and a holiday to Butlin’s.

I currently have outstanding sponsored post fees totalling £153 which is a little worrying as it is quite a low figure, but I am in talks for a few other projects and have got another £215 worth of work to invoice today so hopefully all will be well!

    I’ve had a WP for at 4yr…zero income…I’ve heard folks can make a bit of change with blogs and YT…

    My life is boring and I’ve never been much of a salesman either…

    Congratulations to you…may the years continue to bless you
