I can not believe it is October already. This year feels like it’s flying by. This month is my 1 year anniversary of really writing on my blog.
I am happy with the progress! My challenge was to write one blog a day, everyday that I worked, for a year. It didn’t happen. But I did really well until the summer. I was starting to burn out trying to write and promote everyday and it started to not be enjoyable anymore. Now I aim for 2-3 posts a week about whatever is going on and then I promote them for a couple days through twitter, pintrest and sometimes facebook. That seems to work best for me.
I thought I would make some money but I have only made $4.00 off ad’s. I tried joining Amazon Affiliates, I didn’t sell anything through my links so they suspended my account, which is fine. I haven’t really written a lot of blogs that push products. I’m not really interested in that right now. I am not mad about it. I am happy that people are reading, relating, commenting and liking. I think that makes it worth it. I also love that I can see all the countries that are reading. It’s really cool to me to see that people across the world have looked at my blog.
If you do like what you read, you can buy me a coffee, or buy my book “Little me, Big world”. My son picked that name. Either way, thank you for stopping by.
My goal for October is just to keep writing. I think my next step might be to self host my blog so I can add plug ins and try to grow it a little more. I am not that tech savvy though so the thought of moving over to something new is a little scary to me.
Do you self host? What’s your experience?
