Yup, today’s my birthday and I’m never one to announce it like this, never have but today, why not?
Let’s take one special day to recognize me for once… on my own blog! Lol
If you’ve been following my blog, I’ve been building this website for just over a year now.
I can tell you it’s been a lot of work, more so than I ever thought, but how worth it it is to have this money making machine on the internet!
ONE YEAR LOOK
Just to give you some stats, while I write this, it’s earlier in the month so it’s closer to a year at this time of writing but I won’t publish this till another 3 weeks.
So here are my stats for a one year blog:
- 157 posts published, 12 scheduled
- 17 pages published
- 1327 comments
- 5100+ visits/month
Sometimes I wonder if I am in the wrong niche because it’s very competitive and I know my income won’t really take off till my second year which I just started.
So far I have not earned what I want from my blog YET, there are still a few more miles to go, especially for my niche.
Persistent here is the key and I hear this over and over again from successful members where I train at.
I know this because I’ve seen so many of my fellow members earn a full time income from their site in my same niche so I know this is very possible if I just keep going.
You will definitely get a much more interesting report from me by the end of my second year of blogging.
NEXT STOP: PPC
I think I have to try PPC again, paid advertising for my site. I tried earlier but was quickly banned from Google Adwords for being in the make money online niche so I’ll have to find alternatives.
I know there are other ad networks that are more tolerant of my niche so I hope I can get some PPC done during the next few months so I can better results.
There’s a member I heard that he got into PPC and lost $2000 in his first month, then broke even in the second month, and then, get this, he profited $5000 in his third month!!
How is this possible?!
I obviously don’t know much about PPC or else, I would be telling you “I’M” making $5K a month! lol
Well, back to training, there is great PPC training that I’m going to take advantage of and get this money start rolling in!
If you have any PPC tips, please let me know in the comments below.. please!
ON MY SPECIAL DAY
I find that I don’t let myself be treated and get a relaxing day.
I’m a stay at home mom and my girls are in full time school now, grades 2 and 3, so I can pretty much do all I want.
However, I can’t let myself do that, I’d feel too guilty.
Feel guilty that I’m not doing enough for my family.
So I write, I write all day long when I’m alone to build this online business.
But today, I think I will take the day off and enjoy it how I please and see where the day takes me.
I hope it’s not back on the laptop! LOL
Whatever I do though on my birthday, I know that I’ll be making money regardless because this online business is working 24/7 no matter what I’m doing.
Happy Birthday to me!
