August 2016 Blog Stat Reports Review

Not only have I been totally slacking on updating these blog stat and income report posts but I have been slacking on blogging pretty much altogether.

We all know that life gets like that sometimes.

I was so busy taking care of the present that I neglected to prepare for the future.

Since I am getting back to my first love (blogging), I thought I was start with an State of the Blogs update.

I am starting from scratch with August stats and then, starting next month, I will be putting up the comparison stats to help us track

June 2016 Blog Income and Traffic Report

Yep, it is time for another month’s blog income/traffic report. It has actually been 2 months since I wrote one as I was totally slacking (my bad, y’all) on all my blogs last month.

The wonderful thing is that my traffic and income only took a slight dip without me. Yay! That’s exactly what I want. Passive traffic and income. I have posts coming up in the near future on things that I set-and-forget to keep my stats going strong(ish).

These blog reports are great for me to see what I am doing right (and what I’m doing wrong).

22 Plugins that I put on every blog

22 Plugins that I put on every blog post

I love WordPress because of the plugins.

There is a wealth of plugin on WordPress that you can use to make you blog or website sing.

Sometimes, I only use certain plugins on certain blogs or test various versions on different blogs to see which one I like better.

But, there are some plugins that I have on every single blog that I own.

My Favorite Theme:

Atahualpa: Although not a plugin, it is my theme of choice. It is a flexible theme that you can make do almost anything. Yep,

My Blogging Life May 21, 2016

Hi, all…

I took the morning off so I am getting a late start on my blogging day.

I didn’t take the morning off for any particular reason but that I wanted to.

Being able to do that is one of the reasons that I desire a full-time passive blogging income from home.

I was going to say a self-employed income but some self-employed people don’t have that flexibility.

And I went back and added in the words passive blogging income because some people that work from home don’t have a flexible schedule and that includes many bloggers.

7:00 a.m.

Got an early start due to my daughter needing a ride to school because she had an awkward project diorama (thank God for spell-check. I was all wrong on the spelling of that one) to carry, so

My Blogging Day 5.19.16

Now that I’ve started writing these blogging life posts, I actually feel guilty when I skip a day…or two…or three.

Some days I skip because I didn’t do much on the blogging front.

Others, I skip because I was just too lazy to write ’em.

Yesterday was a semi-combination of both.

I didn’t really do to much on the blogging front and I really didn’t feel like writing about what I was not really doing.

Make sense?


That’s ok.

I am going to tell you what I did yesterday here and you can be the judge.

Besides the
