October 2014 Income Report

Happy new year friends! My first post of 2015—an other exciting edition of my monthly income reports! Yay! Up until now, I’ve been running about 45-60 days behind on these reports, because of how some of my ad networks report earnings. However, I’ve made some changes to some of those sources, and I should be able…

September Income Report

I’ve been doing these monthly income reports for a while now (feel free to check in here if you’re looking for more info on why I’m doing them), and I have to say, one of my major goals for writing them was to motivate myself, and man, is it ever working. I am so proud of how far my monetization strategy has come in just a few short months. When I first started this, I went into it thinking that if I could just make a little bit more cash to justify the amount of time spent, I’d be happy. But now I’m starting to see that this might actually be a viable career for me (combined with my design business). A career that I am excited and inspired by!

July 2014 Income Report

It’s time again for my monthly income report! If you’re curious what this is all about, I started a back-end overhaul of the business aspect of my blog on August 1st, and I want to share my results with you monthly. Why share? Well, a few reasons:

  • Accountability: I want you all to hold me accountable. Keep me in check if I stray off the straight and narrow. Turning your blog into a money-making venture is often a delicate balance between authentic and smarmy, and I really want to err on the side of authentic—and I’m hoping you guys will help keep me there.
  • Transparency: I think it’s hard to be authentic when all things financial and traffic related are hidden under a cloak of mystery. I’m hoping by sharing my numbers and stats, we’ll all feel a little more comfortable with the business side of my blog.
  • Motivation: My goal is to make the work I put into this blog “worth” my time financially. The problem is, I love doing what I do here so much that I’d do it for free. That doesn’t really light a fire under me to work on the business side! By sharing my financials every month, I hope to motivate myself to keep on keepin’ on the road to figuring out how to make this blog financially efficient.
  • Inspiration: Maybe along the way, I can figure out a thing or two and help inspire some other bloggers out there to find out how they can make their own blog more successful and profitable. That’d be super cool.

Let’s Talk Blogging Income

cash

Ready for an obnoxiously long post about the ins-and-outs of my blogging income? Probably not. But here goes anyway… I’ve pretty much always treated my work here on Back to Her Roots as a hobby. Sure, I have some ads in the sidebar, and I do some sponsored posts here and there, but for the…

Odds + Ends

me pregnant

Well, I’m officially past my due date, and I’m still pregnant. Shock. Awe. Surprise. Okay, not really. We definitely expected to go late (on average, first time mothers go eight days late, plus, we felt like the due date was set a little early anyway), so this isn’t any big surprise to us. People keep…

All About Cooking with Superfoods

I had so many great posts planned for you guys this week. But I woke up on Monday morning with one heck of a cold, and I’ve been fighting the good fight against the germs ever since. Long ago, I accepted that the best way for my body to fight colds is for me to stop, rest,…
