Blogging Income & Stats October 2017

Blogging Income & Stats October 2017

I’ve struggled in October, a bout of food poisoning earlier in the month and now half term this week have left me struggling to keep up and with an overflowing email box. I’ve managed to pull it back working late evenings and on the rare days that I’ve had childcare I’ve pretty much pulled a twelve hour shift. This has meant that my income hasn’t suffered too badly, but I am probably pissing PR’s off with my very slow replies!

The bots have been blocked again and my stats seem to be more accurate now, which is unfortunate as those over inflated figures did look good, but I pride myself in being an honest blogger so had to get rid of them!

During October my site received 11,915 page views, 7,952 of which were from unique users. My domain authority is now 38 and I am ranked 88 in the Tots100 chart. My Klout has fallen to 68.

My followings as of 1st November were:

Facebook : 1,243
Twitter : 8,663
