I entered a new chapter this month.
And it did not have anything to do with my blog. Well it actually did but more on that later.
This month I took a step back from my blog and focused on creating a Virtual Assistant Business! Check out my business here!
Don’t worry I will still go into everything that happened with my blog this month and how my new business fits right in.
Before I go into my stats for my 10th month I want to disclose why I am writing this post. Blog income reports are what got me here today. They have inspired me and keep my motivation going so I want to do the same for you! It also holds me accountable and allows me to track my progress.
So I hope you find this report helpful.
If you are wondering the steps I took to start my blog you can check that out here.

Month number 11 blog results
Eleventh month goals:
- 5,000 page views
- Publish 4 posts
- Update 2 old posts for SEO
I based these goals off my tenth month results which you can read here.
So how did I do?
|5,000 Monthly Page Views
|Publish 4 posts
|Update 2 old posts for SEO
Alright so I was being a little ambitious on getting four posts out when also starting up my VA business.
Here is what my 11th month blogging looked like:
I did however increase my pageviews and published a post that had been put aside since I started my blog!
Where am I getting my Traffic from?
95.1% of my traffic came from social media with Pinterest accounting for 98.18%.
My Organic Search traffic (aka Google) is slowly but surely going up. All I can ask for at this point!
Why I focus on Google Traffic:
Google traffic is by far more valuable than Pinterest traffic for 2 reasons:
- It is passive (meaning no constant work to drive traffic. Just post and your’e done)
- It converts better (meaning more money)
Additionally, it can take up to 6-12 months for Google to start ranking your posts, however, they will not have a chance if they are not optimized for SEO. I do not think I would be getting ANY traffic from Google if it weren’t for Debbie Gartner’s amazing Ebooks (which are very affordable by the way).
You can check out her ebooks below:
Additionally, you can buy both books here for a discounted price which is what I did.
Now I feel confident when I publish my posts and know they will have a good chance of ranking in google 4-6 months down the road.
Now lets talk about Pinterest
My Pinterest account has been hanging pretty steady.
I am still only posting 2-3 pins for each post and this month. This month was clearly a lot less since I only got one post out.
How did I make money this month?
Amazon – $7.46
Enough for a coffee this month!
Honestly I am just grateful that I continue to make sales each month even though it won’t exactly pay my bills.
I know that if I increase my traffic I will also increase my affiliate sales.
I do plan on taking an affiliate marketing course down the road.
Here are some other affiliates that I am a part of:
If you are interested in joining Rewardstyle send me an email here (Include first and last name & website url) and I will send you a referral email. If you get accepted we each would get $25!
I could not have made money through affiliate income without my own domain and web hosting. You can sign up using my link here for only $3.95 per month!
Last but not least…
What does my Virtual Assistant Business mean for my blog?
I LOVE blogging, however, it really is a long game especially if you are doing it all on your own like I am.
So while I am “waiting” for my blog to generate a full time income I will build up my business so that I can not only support my family but also my blog!
In addition, my target clients are bloggers themselves so I will get to learn about building a profitable blog all while gaining new skills.
I am beyond excited to start my journey as a Virtual Assistant. It not only allows me the utmost flexibility but also allows me to exponentially grow a business!
Fortunately I came across an AMAZING program that helped me set up my business in less than 2 weeks! The program took all of the guess work out of building a business and truly set me up for success.
If you are interested in becoming a Virtual Assistant I highly recommend checking out this program.
If you are not quite ready to jump in and want to know more you can check out the FREE Workshop here.
Well I am officially nearing my 1st year of blogging. I NEVER imagined I would be where I am today. I have learned so much and know I still have a TON to learn.
I am so glad I started my blog. It truly has opened up a world of opportunites.
My next Income Report will include the entire year of 2020 so you do not want to miss it!
Here are a round up of my posts:
Goals for next month (November 2020):
