The purpose of these Traffic and Income Reports is to keep myself accountable. You see, back in October of 2013 I decided to see if I could make money at blogging. Knowing that I’ll be reporting in each and every month not only keeps me consistently posting fresh content but pushes me to try harder.
I’ll be honest and admit that there are months when I wish the income was higher, but blogging is not for the faint of heart. It takes a lot of work and I’m excited for the day when it all pays off! I’m thankful that I’m able to pay for my expenses and still have leftover to keep in the bank!

What I’ve Been Up To This Month
Other than trying to be consistent about what I learned in the Pinning Perfect Pinterest eCourse (their next session starts April 20 so you’ll want to sign up ASAP if you haven’t already) I haven’t done too much different this month. I’m still updating older posts and have seen consistent traffic them.

Paying It Forward
Last month I shared that a portion of each month’s blog income would be used to lend a fellow entrepreneur money through Kiva. Using both this month and last month’s funds we were able to help Gisella!
She lives in Columbia and works six days a week from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m making and selling industrial mops. These funds will be used to purchase materials so she can increase production and provide a larger inventory to her customers!
