1st Month Blog Income Report


Hey Guys!
You cannot believe how Thrilled I am to be sharing my first ever blog report with you all!
The Unwalked Path is Officially 1 Month Old! (yay!)
Starting a blog from Scratch with Zero experience was no easy task, but exactly what I did!
(and if I did it, You can too!!)

 

Almost a year ago, I stumbled across a Blog income report while scrolling through Pinterest for extra ways to make money. Never before had the thought of blogging ever popped into my head, but as I read about how people are able to make a full-time income from blogging, my jaw dropped!
I quickly became obsessed with the legitimate possibility of earning a decent income, without sacrificing 40 hours a week to a job I despised, and zapped all the energy I would have much rather dedicated to my family.
From that point on, every spare moment I had was spent researching the amazing and complex world of Blogging.

Even before I ever published my first post, I knew that I would be posting my blog income reports from month 1, regardless of whether they were good or bad.
Pinterest is filled with income reports boosting $2,000+/month or 20,000 page views, but I was only able to find One 1st month report, and even this was from someone with prior blogging experience.
My goal is to show you that it is possible to become successful without years of experience, or thousands of dollars invested. It just takes hard work and dedication.
So without further ado,

Check out my First Blog Income Report! ↓


** Unfortunately I cannot post data from my Google Analytics account.
While restructuring my blog, I accidentally broke the HTML code
so it was not connected to my blog for a week and messed up all the stats.
I will use analytics for the next post, Promise! 🙂
(All Stats are from WordPress Analytics)

 

Originally I was going to wait until June to launch The Unwalked Path, but by May 16th, I couldn’t hold back any longer and launched my blog! (Sorry not sorry lol)
My first month’s report will be for May 16- June 16 2017, but every subsequent post will be by month.
(ex. Next report will be for June 2017)


Goals
  • Have 10 Publish-Ready posts for Launch: FAIL

    • 4/10
    • Although I technically failed this goal, I am glad I launched with only 4 posts. There is so much more involved in a blog post than just typing up words. There is a definite learning curve at the beginning of blogging, and having minimal posts allowed me to fully focus on them and ensure they were perfect (pinable images, SEO, etc)
      By the time I reached my 10th post, I already had a good flow down 🙂
  • Set up Facebook page: CHECK

  • Set up Twitter AccountCHECK
  • Set up Pinterest Business AccountCHECK
  • Publish 20 Posts: CHECK

    • 20/20

I am extremely impressed with how well my social media accounts did this month!


Traffic Report

 

  • Views:  2504
    • I can’t believe I got 2.5k Views my Very First Month!! I am beyond thrilled!
  • Visitors: 1600
  • Subscribers: 6

Unfortunately all of the other Traffic Data on Analytics is inaccurate because of my little HTML blunder, I Promise this section will be far more in depth on the next report!

Pinterest has been an amazing source of traffic for my blog.
I have done so much research on the perfect Pinterest strategy, I may write up a post about it, or possibly offer it as a free course.
I haven’t decided yet, but stay tuned! 🙂

Stumble Upon has also been huge in attracting visitors to my blog. Through all my research, it seems not many people are aware of SU, or how to properly use it to their benefit!
Keep your eyes opened for a SU Tutorial post!

Blog Income

 

Ads

  • Google Adsense: $2.59 I have read that most blogs don’t get accepted into Google Adsense on their first application. Many state that you need a certain amount of views/month or must be already established.Like I said above, I launched my blog with 4 posts and zero traffic and was approved!Lesson: Don’t let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game
    (Can you tell I just watched A Cinderella Story? 😛 )

Total: $2.59

I know $2.59 doesn’t sound like much but I am THRILLED to have ANY income my first month!
We all have to start somewhere! 🙂


June Goals

 

Since my “First” month and June overlap quite a bit, June’s goals will be smaller than usual.
My Husband and I are also planning a move within the next month, and between property viewings, packing and cleaning, I will be limited on blogging time.

Twitter: 178 → 190

Facebook: 54 → 60

Pinterest: 94 → 100

Posts:  Publish 8 Posts

Subscribers: 6 → 6+
I have not had much time to invest in my subscriber list or opt-ins yet. This will be a goal for July 🙂

Apply to at least 5 Pinterest Group Boards

Make multiple Pinnable Images for each post

Start an outline for a Free E-Book

My first month of blogging has been such an amazing adventure!
It is so much more complex and rewarding than I ever thought possible.
In just one month I have already connected with amazing people and feel such a sense of community and support, it’s indescribable! 🙂
I have always loved writing (I have a B.A English to prove it), and figured Blogging would be a natural fit,
But there is Soooooo much more to blogging than just writing!
From Networking to Graphic Design, I can’t get enough!
