As I’ve been saying at Crystal Clear, I want to blog full time by 2012. To reach that goal, I need a bunch of traffic on all of my blogs. Specifically, I want 25,000 unique visitors a month at BFS by August 2011 and need to be making $25,000 a year total by the end of 2011. I figured the best way to keep my eye on the prize is to hit monthly targets.
Between that and the fact there seems to be major interest in the subject, I’m starting a new update around the 1st of every month of my blogging stats and income generated. I’ll also do a huge 1 year update at the end of every year and an anniversary update as well.
Here were my goals for November 2010 followed by the results (not as well as hoped :():
My goals for December:
I’m not sure why my visitor numbers are down so much, but I truly hope it’s just because of the holidays. Any questions, comments, or advice?
FYI: I worked at a dead end cubicle job from 2005-2011 for about $30,000 a year. I went self-employed in July 2011 and make between $80,000-$100,000 through blogging, a rental home, and professional pet sitting. If you’d like to start your own site (link to my free step-by-step guide), I highly suggest checking out Bluehost (my referral link with a nice discount for you). I even have all of my favorite tools on a resource page - I hope they help you too. This all gives me the time to be with my aging family members, the flexibility to stay close with my friends and family, and it should help if we finally get pregnant too! Please contact me any time at budgetingfunstuff*at*gmail*dot*com with questions or just to brainstorm! I’d love to help!
