First Ever Income and Traffic Report

Adsense, affiliate links, and google analytics can all be a bit overwhelming for a new blogger. When I first started blogging in 2013, I never even thought to learn about bounce rates and pageviews. I didn't know I could  find out how many visitors I had or what posts were the most popular.

Now I have been enlightened. I am learning how to write better, promote my blog, and track my progress. The competitive Type A in me gets really pumped about being able to compete with myself. 

While a lot of small bloggers don't post income and traffic reports, I really like the idea. I love the idea of being able to record my growth for myself, but I also love the idea of sharing with my fellow blogger friends and new bloggers. 

I know that the fear of not being successful can keep people from even starting. I also know, from personal experience, that it can be hard for newbies to relate to bloggers that are already getting 10k pageviews a month. 

I've been blogging since 2013 technically, but I didn't really start taking it seriously until 8 months ago, hence why I am just now posting my first income and traffic report. I've posted all of the monthly stats that I have so that you can see the traffic growth over time. I don't have all of my past statistics to show my social media growth over time, but I have included the information that I do have.
