Reviewing my Last year accomplished I have realized that I had been a completely lost person during 2015. I had been working on multiple projects, working on two jobs, failing to keep a good eye on my health and fitness, trying to make ends meet. AND LOST!.
During Dec 2015, I finally decided to take control of my life. I started writing down my reflections on the past year gone, reflections on my life and health, my spiritual growth and business, and found that I really was nowhere!. I was lost!
Come Dec 15th I started creating a workbook to channelize my life. “Create a plan, Create a plan life it is too short” is what kept banging on my head.
A part of this plan that I laid down was to share my financial growth with my readers as well. So here is a little breakdown, I am quite scared about sharing my financial information but I think I need an outlet to confront me as well.
So here goes Lets get this growth shared series started!
I have had this blog up since 2011 but really NEVER concentrated on earning money through this site. I have had the Etsy Shop from where I made sales usually but really didn’t put much effort into this blog at all. But with the coming new year I plan to work on this blog and somehow monetize my other websites and possibly share the income report and growth of this one. Once in a while.
Below is the screenshot of the analytics which will show you that I just recently decided to write via this blog hence the hits are working a bit upward.
My page views in DEC 13th – JAN 11:
TOTAL INCOME FOR DEC-JAN 2015: $121.57
Etsy Shop: $32.20

Website Shop: $0
Zazzle Shop: $52.37
Number of posts published this month: 2
Average time on page: 1.24 mins.
MONTHLY EARNING RECAP:

WHAT I LEARNED THIS MONTH:
I felt like I had too much on my plate with my other blogs, Aivault for clipart and graphics, My studio website One8edegree Studios, Decalideas Blog. And my Coloring book underprocess. I feel that I am working on too many things at the same time. I will be dropping off a few of these websites I have been blogging lazily at and just concentrate more on this and Decalideas website.
With only 2 posts in the bucket, you can see that how bad I need to manage my blogging and job and kids.
I will be focusing more on writing quality contents for this site and increase the engagement of my readers.
I will be creating products but not as many as I used to make before. I will only be creating more of quality and less of quantity in terms of product creation.
AREAS TO WORK TOWARDS COMING MONTH:
1- I will be posting more
2- Creating Quality products
3-Using Pinterest and Explore autopilot apps for this.
4- Expanding my How to Start a Blog series posts with more tutorials.
5-Start adding more affiliate products & links to my top 10 posts on Google Analytics.
6-Upgrade my Goal Planner workbook and more valuable pages to it.
MY GOALS FOR NEXT MONTH:
1- Update my shop with tons of new designs still unpublished in my hard drive
2- Complete my planner workbook and publish it through Amazon.
3- Create a new E-book that is full of organization templates free to download through my site.
