Welcome back beautiful people for August’s income and traffic report for my blog here at Uniquely Mickie. This blog is only three months old so I am just starting out in the blogging world, but I’ve learned so much since I’ve started blogging and made plenty of friends online. I started this blog to help out fellow millennials who are either in college, grad school, or who are just wanting to learn about the multiple topics that I discuss. I started doing these monthly reports to help my viewers and I see the growth and the progression of my blog over time. One day, I hope to make a full livable income from writing about the topics that I love. So without further ado, let’s get this show on the roll…
If you’re not a fellow blogger, then these might come off as quite strange. But let me explain why I want to start doing these reports for you all.
- Growth Tracking- These reports will allow me to see my growth in traffic and income over time. Most other bloggers only start posting these reports once they start making money, but everyone has to start from the bottom before they reach the top. I hope that these reports help inspire other bloggers that you can eventually make money through blogging
- Transparency- There are a ton of ways to make money through blogging, some that are honest and some that aren’t. I want to be totally honest in how I make money, where I get the money from, and that this blog is legit. No funny business here, I promise!
What I Did This Month
With concern to blog posts, I was able to write 8 posts for the month of August. This month I not only focused on making great content and connecting with other bloggers, but I also focused on setting up sponsored posts and creating my first media kit to send to companies. While I can’t go into too much details on the campaigns yet, you will be seeing them very soon here on the blog including a few giveaways!
This month, I also helped my apartment with move-in and went back to school at the end of August. While I won’t be able to post as often as I have been, you will be seeing a new post every Monday and surprise posts when I am able to have some free time to write for you all. But bear with me until I get into the groove of things with school being back in session.
I have also gotten better at my social media platforms, with the help of automating posts and social media reminders.
