Q2 2017 – Blog Traffic & Income Report

Ever wondered how much money I’m making? This covers April, May, and June of 2017. As I’ve said previously, I really enjoy reading similar reports and figured sharing my own would entertain someone and also keep me accountable to keep track of these things. You can read my previous income reports all here. I am looking at average daily visits, income/expenses, subscriber & follower counts, traffic in/out, & goals. If you’re a creative blogger yourself, be sure to check out my list of links for affiliate programs, networking opportunities, and places to submit your work!

I have spent a large chunk of time working on my other website, which has divided my focus, but as summer winds down DSMOF will require less time and I can shift my attention back to Swoodson Says, which is perfect because fall/winter are consistently my busiest times! While I missed one of my goal deadlines, listed below, I’m still feeling pretty good about how this quarter turned out.

If you like these income reports, I’d love to hear what you think in a comment or your support shopping through my affiliate links 🙂

How Sewing Fit In After Baby #2

Sewing and motherhood are intertwined in the past 5 years of my life; being pregnant sparked my urge to make things and while I love staying at home with my 2 kids, crafting is my main outlet. Life after my first child looked much different than after my second child, so I’m joining Erin, Monserratt, and Jodi for a series called Ease In to Motherhood, which is “a sewists’ celebration of motherhood and the changes it brings to our lives. During the month of July, we invite you to share your experiences of the physical and mental changes of pregnancy, childbirth and/or any other way a child comes to your life.” Be sure to click over and read what other bloggers had to share for the series – and if you’re pregnant or parenting  check out my other related posts:
