October Income and Traffic Report

This post may include affiliate links, you can read my Privacy Policy.

I’ve decided to start sharing my traffic and income as I find it motivating for bloggers as well as myself. Last February, I took a blogging break due to my pregnancy. I’ve just gotten back into my blog again and my traffic has taken a HUGE nose dive! When I was actively working on my site, it was growing every single day. At one point I was getting close to 50k page views a month. Needless to say, I now feel like I’m starting from scratch all over again.

I hope you find these reports inspiring. I’ll be sharing not only my traffic and income but the things I’m doing to try and increase those numbers.

I know one of the big questions is how much time do bloggers actually spend on their blog. Well, this will vary from blogger to blogger but currently, I’m doing this very part-time. I just had my 4th child and my time is pretty limited. I’d say I’m currently spending 10 to 15 hours per week on my blog.
