It’s JULY!! I wish it weren’t so hot in Mississippi, but other than that, I’m really enjoying our summer. I’m also excited to be on track sharing my June 2017 Blogging Income Report!
The goal I set for 2017 was to increase my gross income every month this year. I didn’t set a specific percentage (although that’s something I may need to think on), but I just wanted to see steady growth for the whole year.
So for, for all of 2017, I’ve hit my goal! The increases haven’t been huge or dramatic, but seeing steady growth is so exciting!
By doing these reports, I hope to see areas where I’m slacking so I can focus and grow each month. I also plan to evaluate my expenses and make cuts where I can.
I’ve continued to spend money on Facebook advertising, by following the Moolah course. This course is not available now, but you can get on the waiting list for next time and I’ve continued to see growth in my income directly from Facebook and I’m up more than 20,000 new fans in 4 months. I’d love to hit 100K fans by the end of 2017 but I’m not sure it’ll be possible since Facebook seems to hate me right now :-(.
One more thing I want to mention. The majority of this income comes from Rose Bakes, but I do earn small amounts from this blog (CakeBlogging.com) and my personal blog, RoseAtwater.com. So far, the income from the other two is tiny compared to Rose Bakes but I do lump it altogether for these reports.
Hopefully one day Cake Blogging & RoseAtwater will warrent their own reports, but as of now, it’s not worth separating out. Also, these reports do not include the income from my real-life cake business.
Anywho… let’s get to the numbers!
