Favorite Blog Course
Best Thing About Blogging
I love being able to help other people and the freedom to work from home and have a flexible schedule.
I also love being creative and blogging allows me to do that daily.
What Frustrates You About Blogging
It frustrates me that the beginning is so hard and that it takes really long to grow and reach a larger audience.
I know this doesn’t happen to everyone, but it does to most bloggers and if you’re not persistent, you end up giving up.
I’m thankful to have a really supportive husband, family, and friends. Without their support, I’d have given up a long time ago.
One Big Goal for Next 6 Months
Grow my traffic so I can grow my email list and income.
Ideally Where Would You Like To Be 1 Year From Now
I see a much larger audience, I see personal growth, and I see myself overcoming my fears and being able to do live videos (which I currently cannot do because fear doesn’t let me).
I see my blog income being enough to provide for my entire family.
That’s in a perfect world, of course…
3 years From Now, How Would You Define Success
I’d love to be able to make enough income that neither my husband nor I would doubt even for a second if we’d be able to achieve our dreams as a family.
My husband would be working with me and we would be able to help tons of people to have a thriving home and family life.
Number of Email Subscribers: 509
Average Monthly Page views: 1,749
Average Monthly Unique Visitors: 1,178
Desired Average Monthly Income: $5,000
Favorite income stream:
So far, affiliate marketing and private promotions. I like affiliate marketing because it’s somewhat passive. Once I create a post or include the affiliate product in my email sequence, I don’t have to do anything else other than seeing the money come in. However, I don’t have enough page views to generate much income from this method. I like private promotions because although I don’t have a lot of page views, I can make money this way by posting on my social media.
Current income breakdown:
- 90% sponsored posts
- 9% affiliate income
- 1% product sales
Favorite Family Life Affiliate Program
Biggest Wins So Far
I have grown my sponsored content income more than I thought possible in the beginning.
This has been very helpful for my family.
