Blogging Income & Stats December 2016

Blogging Income & Stats December 2016

December wasn’t a great month income wise which is entirely my fault as I’ve slacked. I had a last minute holiday which meant working extra days the week before to make time up, I took my Mac on holiday with me with good intentions but while I was away I decided to enjoy my holiday and take a break. This combined with the fact that I attempted (and failed) Vlogmas and the Christmas preparations meant that I had very little time for blogging.

As expected when I took a chunk of the month off blogging my stats took a dip, thankfully google searches and the competitions that I had running meant that they didn’t fall too low. My blog received 15,684 page views 7,944 of which were from unique users. I finished the month with a domain authority of 29 and a Klout score of 69. As hoped my Tots ranking is climbing back up and I’m now ranked 147. My followings on the 1st December were as follows :

Facebook : 825
Twitter : 5,397
Instagram : 14k
Pinterest : 773
Google+ : 403
Bloglovin’ : 1,140
YouTube : 112

Sponsored blog post fees – £280
Total income – £280


Paypal fees – £2.41 (annoyingly I get charged when companies pay me via Paypal)
Social media scheduling programme – £8.09
Photoshop – £8.57
iCloud Storage – £0.79
Total Expenses : £19.86

Total income less expenses : £260.14

On top of the income I received approximately £543.74 worth of products to promote/review.

Total income, less expenses + review items : £803.88

Review items/products to promote were : Aveeno products, 2 x phone cases, Degustabox, bread maker, Bluestone Holiday and Teapigs matcha. 

I currently have outstanding sponsored post fees totalling £100, I’m 60p away from the payment threshold on Adsense so am hoping to receive that £60 this month and I have £18 of eBay commission which should be paid this month. January is the first month that I am relying on my income from my blog so seeing so little outstanding is making me really panic, I must work hard, I must work hard.
