September was a tough month in the numbers game. I only had six new posts, so traffic wasn’t being driven through Word Press itself. With my full time job starting, I wasn’t able to spend a lot of time promoting my posts on social media. I’m still trying to figure out the best way for me to juggle full-time work, part-time work, and my blog…but I’ll get there.
But for now, I’m done with that piece. Isn’t it fun (and stressful) watching your blog/brand grow and evolve? I haven’t been in this for even 3 months and I’ve made so many changes. Part of that might be because I didn’t have a solid plan going in, but it’s also happening as I’m learning.
And it’s fun watching it develop. It’s like a child that I’m raising and helping mature. Not that I have a child to compare it to, but I’d like to think it’s similar (and a lot less messy).
Since it’s the beginning of the month, here’s my income report from August. As I said in my July report, I write these because I enjoy reading them myself. I like to see what other people are doing both successfully and not successfully. Hopefully it helps someone else, too!
This has been an incredibly eye-opening, knowledge gaining, and frustrating month. Ha. It’s been full of long days and late nights and a never ending spinning brain. I’m constantly thinking of things I could do different or ways to improve my content. I’m glad I got the motivation to start this in the summer when I’m on break from my job and not in the middle of the school year. It would not have lasted.
