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).

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.

My Blogging Life: Thank God Its Friday

TGIF, people. TGIF!!!

I have already been so busy this morning, both with personal stuff and with blogging.

Yeah, I know that you are only hear to read about the blogging stuff…

I know, I know…

Hm. Maybe I should do one of these on my lifestyle blog.

Think it will fly?

Anywho, on to my blogging day thus far.

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

My Blogging Life 5.11.16 thru 5.15.16

I know, I know…based on the frequency lack of posts of my daily blogging life, you would think that I have done absolutely nothing over the last 5 days.

You would (partially) right.

On Wednesday, I drove to pick up my middle kid from his college which is about 45 minutes to an hour away so that was about 3 hours out of my day gone bye-bye.

So, I just finished up my Facebook blogging group work and called it a day.


Because the very next day, I drove to pick up my oldest from college which is

My blogging day: book blog

Good morning, readers and bloggers!

I am actually on time this morning.

My schedule is built for my preferences to get all of the work that I need to do done.

I specifically do the tasks that I have previously been neglecting first.

I know from experience that I will stay up late to complete a post but not so much with the social activities.

8:00 a.m.

I am up and off to a good start this morning. I have already checked my Adsense for yesterday ($0.65) and my statcounter (my niche blog hit 114 and my demographic blog

My blogging day: Housing Niche Blog

Man, oh, man…I keep forgetting that I want to keep a log of how I spend my blogging time.

Here it is, almost 11:30, I am just now remembering.

My blogging day generally starts at 8 a.m. and ends around 8 p.m.

Yep, I put in a full 12 hour days and, God willing, I will one day have something to show for it.

Don’t get me wrong, I do take breaks to shower, walk the dog, go to the store, etc.

But, most days are spent simply blogging.

Now, on Mondays, my focus is on my housing niche

May 2016 Blog Income, Traffic, Goals, and Linkup

Welcome to May 2016’s Blog Income, Traffic, Goals, and Linkup post.

Wow, April was a busy month.

I learned a lot.

I tried a few things.

I failed at a few things.

Some things that I tried, I won’t be able to see the until well into this month, so the results will probably be reported on my June 2016 Blog Income report.


Well, let’s get started by looking at my April 2016 Goals success and failures. I put the failures in red (boo!) and the successes (woo hoo!). The kinda dids are in grey.

Blogging Goals for April 2016

I have been ignoring this blog.

Actually, I have been lapse on all of my blogs but this one in particular took the brunt of my neglect.

I mean, my last post on joining my Amablogger Tribe was Oct 5 2015, nearly 6 months ago. (Missed the 6 months mark by 1 day. Uh…go me?!?! )

I mean, it is a pretty enough post but, come on….I can do better than that. Geesh.

And to make matters worse, when I did attempt to login over the weekend, the whole website was gone.

Nowhere to be found.

And I had
