December 2016 Blog Stats And Income Report

blog income

I’m about 20 days too late with this post, but I thought I would get on and publish it anyway and hopefully remember earlier in February!

At the end of December I had over 26,000 page views on my blog, a domain authority of 34 and a Tots 100 ranking of 66.

So as of the end of December my social media stats were:

Twitter: 17,100

Instagram: 16,300

Facebook: 2,150

Pinterest: 1,580

You Tube: 154

Bloglovin: 125

Income from sponsored posts: £2050

Total cash income: £2050.00

[Income awaiting payment, £350]

I also received a large number of review items this month, including a Decathlon Quechua jackets, Furry Friends Watches, Smiggle Goodies, WILF book subscription and tickets for the Irn Bru Carnival.

It’s a definite increase in stats from last month and over £1000 more than November, but this is mainly due to a large contract that I have just been paid for.  We’ll see how the total rises and falls throughout the year, although personally I would clearly like to earn this amount more often!

I find it interesting to tot up all the stats and income for the blog each month and this post is nothing to do with boasting.  It’s partly for my record, but mainly because I like the transparency and it can help other bloggers who are wondering what they should be expecting to earn for similar stats (although it’s not all about the stats!).

    Wow! What a month. I’ve been toying with the idea of a similar post once a month to help me track my own growth. I certainly don’t see it as a boast, if anything it’s nice to see other bloggers stats, especially as a relative newcomer. Thanks for sharing

    Wow what a fab month! I don’t see it as boasting at all – as a 1st yr blogger, it’s inspiring to see what is achievable! Congratulations and thanks for your openness.

    It would be handy if you could include a list of what sponsored posts you did 🙂
