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 🙂

I switched in the middle of last year to Mediavine Publisher Network and have absolutely loved working with them; they don’t have an affiliate program, I’m just sharing in the hopes of spreading the love to fellow bloggers!

2017 Goals

2017-blog-goals

I shared my look back at 2016 earlier this week, and now after reviewing all that, I am looking ahead! To start, one of the biggest conflicts I’m experiencing with blogging and crafting is the blurring between building a business and having a hobby. I’ve often called Swoodson Says a wobby – work/hobby – in that I enjoy it, but not all of it, and make some decisions that are to build a business and some decisions that are just because I want to. The more knowledge I have about blogging and promoting and monetizing, the more tension there is between how I choose to spend my time.
