Hey everybody! Welcome to our Food Blog Income Report March 2016. We made $188.51 this month! What what what?! We can finally afford this awesome dehydrator we’ve been eyeing ->
So, we knew March was going to be an interesting month, seeing as we ran out of photos/recipes at the end of February. We had to pull out all the stops to keep the ball rolling until my return to the USA on the 15th (and get back into the swing of things with shooting new recipes). We promoted a different one of our old recipes almost every single day on all our social channels, we kept up with our weekly themed roundups, published our new income reports, and I also tried submitting some of our previously rejected recipe photos to foodgawker after some tweaking and it was pretty successful!
When I finally got back to our apartment after almost 5 months of being away, I was just roaring to get started. I wanted to shoot right away. It was really exciting to be able to create new content again. After 5 days of getting settled, we finally went back to our old posting schedule of Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. The month really went way better than we expected. We were hoping to do about the same as we did in February and we ended up doing almost 1.5x of it! Yeey!
Where Did The Traffic Come From:
For not posting new content for half a month, it went incredibly well for us. Even though there was a slight downward trend (as expected), we were still able to keep the momentum going for the most part. We’re really excited to see how much growth there will be once we start consistently adding new content.
Our social media is also growing really well and that’s definitely very exciting to see. We now have over 4000 followers across our 4 social media channels and it seems that the more followers you have, the faster it grows. I can’t wait to look back at these numbers again next month.
Blogging really does takes a lot of time and effort and I couldn’t imagine being able to keep up with it if I were working a full-time job as well. Our ideal situation would be that by the time I am legally able to work in the USA, to not even need to get a full-time job. That’s what we’re working towards, especially now that we’re about to start building our own tiny house on wheels – every free minute counts! 😀
So, as always – if you have any questions about anything related to food blogging or specifically about something in this income report, feel free to leave a comment down below! I will either answer it there or address it in the next report!
Till next month!
