Top 10 Traffic Sources
Thank you TheSunnyPatch.ca for being my number 1 blog referral!
My income for May was down, but that didn’t mean I didn’t have any offers for extra income. I received quite a few leads from SocialSpark but they weren’t a good fit for Thrifty T’s Treasures. Sure, I could have made a little bit of cash, but it wasn’t worth it. I’d rather share information that I truly enjoy and that my readers will be able to relate to. Let’s see – I had leads for insurance and motor companies, to name a few.
Wow Me Wednesday
In the month of May I started hosting Wow Me Wednesday, a weekly link-up where other bloggers come share their blog posts. This is not only a fun way to generate traffic, but is a wonderful way to meet new people and make blogging friends. Yes, it takes a bit of extra work because I pick my favorites each week and share them at Saturday’s Pick Six, but it also gives me plenty of information to share via social media without having to ask the blog owner’s permission before using their picture.
So far, I’m thoroughly pleased at the amount of participation I’ve had each week at Wow Me Wednesday. Plus, I’ve already met a few new friends!
Adding A Personal Touch
I don’t know about you, but I love to see what goes on in the day-to-day life of a blogger. It makes the blogger seem more “real” and I relate better to them. So, I’ve trying to add more of a personal touch and, about once a week, have been sharing more about everyday life in my family and home category.
It’s funny because these type of posts seem to get the most interaction on my Facebook page! Which proves my point that people like to see the real blogger!
