Let me start by saying that I’ve always loved reading blogging stats, I especially love income reports! You best believe that I’m that girl in the corner always cheering others on!
Hopefully this little blog report is encouraging and/or entertaining. 😉 Also, I’d love all the advice and encouragement I can get, so feel free to bombard me with your blogging knowledge. 🙂
If you’d like to see where I started, go check out my post here and if you’d like to see the reason why I’ve chosen to give this blogging thing another shot, then you can find my crazy thoughts here.
The month of April proved to me that I can stay consistent and with that consistency comes reward. I loved not only sharing our lives, but I loved the creativity…and, not to mention, the HUGE amount of income I brought in. 😉 😉 😉 <—–emphasis on the winks
In all seriousness though, this was a good month. I’m beyond proud of myself and there’s a lot of learning that’s taken place.
I’m learning that every social media platform has potential, whether I have 18 followers or 600.
I’m also learning that page views matter, SEO matters and Pinterest matters. Link up parties have also helped me meet with new friends and reconnect with bloggers from back in the day, which makes me feel comforted.
So here we go, without knowing much, but with lots to learn along the way – my first income report that I’m posting brought in…..
Google AdSense Complete Earnings Month of April 2022 – $2.52
Amazon Affiliates Complete Earnings Month of April 2022 – $8.83
Okay, so that $11.35 may not seem like much, BUT you guys – I earned that! I stayed with it, met other bloggers, and blogged my little heart out and earned it!

This month I plan to continue to stay consistent with my posting. Consistency, I’m learning, is key. It also seems that Pinterest is a major source of page views for me, so it’d be worth me understanding more about how Pinterest can benefit my blog through Idea Pins. I also started sharing on my Facebook page again. I need to somehow figure out how to direct traffic over there, too. My other major focus is to get my page views numbers up so that I can apply for another way to monetize from advertisements.
Okay, so, there you have it – I’d be ecstatic to make $15.00 this month – so we shall see. Slow and steady…
Thanks, as always, so dropping by! It seriously means so much!
Congratulations!!! Earning any amount of money is a good thing! You should be proud. Thank you for sharing at #omhgww. See you next week.
Woo hoooo! You are on your way! And you're right, consistency is key. And you were soooo consistent this past month! Once you start getting those pageviews you need to apply for Mediavine and ditch Adsense. You'll be astonished at the payout compared to Adsense. Getting on with them was the best thing I've ever done for my blog. Cheering you on forever and ever, Marie!
Also, may I say that your graphic is STUNNING. Loving your photos and the way you arranged them. Definitely Pinterest-worthy!!
Thanks so much! I was so scared to share it – this means the world to me!
Thanks so much, Lindsay! This past week is off to a good start in views, but not so much with the moola. There's so much to learn! I'll 100% apply for Mediavine once I can. I was watching YouTube videos on it over the weekend. Haha! That's who I am now! LOL! Thanks for being my biggest cheerleader!
Thanks so much!!! I have no idea what I'm doing – lots of testing things out, so this means soooo much!
