My Second Month of Blogging – More Good, More Bad, and Even Uglier

I wanted to share a bit of information about my second month of blogging on The Money Pixie. There was some good in the second month, but also a lot of bad. Read on to learn more.

(You can find my post on my first month of blogging HERE.)

Okay…let’s get to what you’re here for…my stats for May.

Page Views:

My goal was 3,000 page views for the month. I didn’t quite reach it but I was a 2,700. That is up from 683 for my first month, so I’m pretty happy with that.

Email List:

I had one very lonely person on my email list. I’m now up to 22. Having said that, I have to admit I haven’t done anything with the list. Yikes. I’ll get there. I promise.

Social Media:

I had 200 Pinterest followers at the end of my first month, and I was on 23 group boards. I added 2 group boards, and I’m up to 368 followers.

I had made an arbitrary goal of getting to 500, but I really didn’t have a plan to do so. It just sounded like a nice number.

Blog Posts:

My goal was to write 25 blog posts in May. That didn’t happen. (See above.) I did, however, write 9 blog posts and added 2 additional pages for a total of 34 posts and 15 pages.

Revenue:

As I mentioned in my first monthly blogging blog post, I’m not making revenue goals at this time. Having said that, I did make $4.37 for the month. That’s down from $43.28.

Summary:

  • Pageviews – 2,700 up from 683
  • Email subscribers – 22 up from 1
  • Pinterest followers – 368 up from 200
  • Posts and pages – 34 posts up 9, 15 pages up 2

Resources I Used During My Second Month of Blogging

In case it will help those that are thinking about blogging, I thought I’d list what I used my second month of blogging, and am continuing to use.

(These are affiliate links, so if you make a purchase, I will make a small amount of money if you use any of them. Also, there is no cost to you, but it will help support this blog and buy treats for my two puppy dogs, Sammy and Truman.)

  1. Blue Host – This is the hosting company I use for this blog.
  2. Tailwinds – I started with their free 100 scheduled pins and then upgraded to a yearly subscription. I think this is really how I got most of my Pinterest followers.
  3. Grammarly.com – I know I don’t catch all of my typos and grammar issues, but I do try my best. I use Grammarly.com to help. They have a free trial as well.
  4. ConvertKit – I started with Mail Chimp for my email list, but am in the process of switching over to ConvertKit. They have a lot of great features that Mail Chimp’s free service doesn’t.
