April/May Income Report: My first months blogging

Income report for my first month of blogging. Mom blogger income report. I’ve finally completed my first month of working on my blog. I’m starting my Income Reports before I actually have an income as the expenses have already started. Yes, you have to spend a little before you make anything.

Income

Total Income: $0

I only launched at the very end of May so I don’t expect to have any income this month and not much for at least a few months. The first income goal is to earn enough to cover the cost of running the blog.

Expenses

Total Expenses : $16.42

$9.00 Fiverr – I used a freelancer on this site to create my site logo. I got lucky and loved what I got on the first try…I’ve heard it can be hit or miss at times but I got something I loved my first time out. Click here to get a freelancer to help you with your blog.

$3.25 BlueHost. I paid for one year of hosting. It was a much better deal to pay the whole year up front for $71.28 than to pay it monthly. You can sign up for hosting through BlueHost here.

$4.17 Color U Bold stock photos. Every blogger needs stock photos to use for pinterest images, post photos etc. I love the photos from Color U Bold because they’re so bright and eye catching. I used their photos for the pin image for this post as well as the picture at the top of the page. It cost me $25 for a 6 month membership and I get new photos each month.

Takeaways from April/May

  1. You have to spend a little to get started.
  2. I wish I had waited a little longer to launch. Don’t write time sensitive posts until you have a good amount of other content ready. I had spent a bit of time writing a Father’s Day gifts posts so I had to launch if I wanted to get that post out there but I wasn’t truly ready. I was still figuring out the basic nuts & bolts of blogging so I was limited on time to actually promote that post and write additional content. Without that post I probably would’ve waited another month before launching. So I guess the takeaway here is to not rush, it’ll be less stressful and you’ll have a better site at launch.

Goals for June

  1. Write more posts. It’s early days so I want to focus on beefing up my content.
  2. Continue to figure out how to blog. There are so many variables that I’m still learning.
  3. Learn a lot more about Pinterest as it’s apparently the key to getting blog traffic.
