June 2017 Traffic & Income Report

I’ve decided that I want to start taking this blogging thing seriously-ish! Wondering why I say seriously-ish? Well, I don’t have the same goals as other bloggers I personally know. A lot of my blogging buddies want to make blogging a full-time income, they want to retire their husbands and turn their blog into a business.

I’m personally not at that point right now. I have a full-time job and four kids, so I feel like I have enough on my plate. However, I’d love to turn the blog into a very lucrative side hustle. For me, that would mean earning $1,000 to $2,000 per month from passive income (ads & affiliates).

With that said, I’ve decided to publically share my journey to accomplishing my blogging goals!
