Hey yall! Happy August! I hope you all have been enjoying these hot days of summer. I have, and hate that it’s coming to an end for me due to the girls going back to school August 10th. What happen to when kids went back to school after Labor Day? I think that is not fair and it’s too hot for kids to go back to school so soon, their minds are still in vacation mode, including mines.
July was a month of travel and getting prepared for back to school. Last month, I traveled to Memphis for my families’ annual family reunion and flew to Las Vegas for a Beauty Convention.
What I haven’t mentioned on my blog post about what happened to me in Vegas is that I slammed one of my fingers with the car door while I was out there, so it has been very hard for me to type and I’ve been having a lot of typing mistakes because of it. Part of my finger nail has turned black and I’m hoping it’ll grow out because it still hurts and it’s ugly to look at. Has this happen to you? How long do I have to expect it to grow out?
Again, I had another good month of blog earnings. Nothing really has changed, just staying consistent with it. My focus now on my blog has been back to school in which I’m getting good hits with Google and social networks that is making my income stay afloat.
Remember, if you’re a blogger make sure to write evergreen articles (most important to keep traffic coming to your blog consistently) and also seasonal ones. Back to school is seasonal and my traffic for that topic is high and will start calming down by the end of September. Next seasonal topics are Labor Day, Fall, and Halloween; make sure to start focusing on those topics now.

I can’t believe that I made over $10k again! Hopefully this trend will continue because I’m paying off all my debts and saving a lot of it since my day job ends at the end of the year. Soon I’ll be fully self-employed, I can’t believe it! I’m nervous, but I know it will be the best for me and could really help my business grow. No more of me always having to turn down event invites due to me always being at work.
Last month, something has been really bothering, something to where I’m starting to see who has my best interest and who just want to use me and this is one of the reasons why I’m going to be ending my income reports at the end of the year.
Due to me exposing my blog income I’m noticing, mainly old friends, I haven’t spoken to in years started talking to me again and wanting to know about how they too can become bloggers. They’re telling me all these sob stories of their financial struggles and wanting me to help by making them bloggers too.
What ticks me off is that these so called friends didn’t even bother to ask me how I’m doing, what I’ve been up to besides blogging, how’s the kids! Basically they see I’m doing well and want the piece of the pie too. If they want to get into the business of blogging they could buy my eBook that explains how to make an income from blogging, for goodness sakes the book is only $1.99!! I’m pretty sure they have $2 bucks to spare and help support me, but instead all they care about is free information they can milk out of me.
What they don’t understand is I worked hard all these years to get to the point where I’m at today. I too struggled financially but I never looked for a handout, I worked extremely hard to get out of my situation. You know how you see when people win the lottery and then all of a sudden people they haven’t spoken to in years start coming around? Well yeah, that’s what seems to be happening to me and I don’t like it at all. This is the reason why I didn’t really tell my family and friends that I was a blogger.
The reason for these income reports is to share that there are ways to make an income from home that is legitimate and I wanted to share my tips how I did it. Also it helped me with my growth on what worked for me and what hasn't. Just so unfortunate that people take advantage.
So I’ll be ending my income reports and if you’re one of my loyal readers that would like to know how my income with blogging is doing next year you can contact me.
Sorry to rant but I really needed to get that off my chest. I love helping people to achieve their goals, I want everyone to win, but I do not like being used.
I hope you all had a good month of earnings and cheers to the month of August!
