Blog Income Report June 2020
Blog Income Report June 2020 : Find out how I made $1867.85 through my blog with various strategies.
June was a really hard month for me physically and emotionally. It’s been about 3 months since we’ve really gone anywhere or had any true fun or connection and it is definitely wearing on me in a lot of ways.
Couple that with the extreme work we pulled together to get our house ready to sell (in the manner of for sale by owner) and a pending move on the horizon makes for a lack of time and energy for blogging. Even with all of this, I am so impressed that I was able to make more than I have in previous months, especially for a slow time. June has been my highest income since January and I have done the least work on the blog this month since then.

Blog Income Report June 2020
Here are some noteworth things that happened in June:
- I barely blogged at all! WE’RE MOVING!! We knew this was a strong possibility and now it is finally a reality. After months of searching, Mike got a great job offer a few states away that we couldn’t turn down. We’re very excited to move to an area where there is more to do albeit a much higher cost of living. I’ve already started looking into options for a new house. From having a custom home built by firms like Ware (waredesignbuild.com/custom-lake-home-builders-wisconsin) and other similar ones, to buying an existing property and sprucing it up, there’s just so many places to look for. But anyway, that’s not a pressing issue right now. Coming back to the story and the main reason why I’ve barely blogged at all. After the job offer was accepted, it was time to sell our house. We had a huge laundry list of things to do to get it ready and we busted our asses for 3 weeks during which time blogging was NOT a priority. It all paid off because we sold our house in 36 hours! Check out the vlog I made on our Skinner TV YouTube channel all about it.
- Zero Instagram Activity: I feel like I am constantly taking breaks from Instagram for many reasons, but this break was totally not planned. Long story short, for a while I felt like I was forcing myself to post as much as I was before having James. I kept trying to keep up and ultimately kept falling “behind”. Seeing everyone else in a position I wanted to be in but wasn’t in was hurting too much. Not only that but I feel like the politics of it all got out of control. During the height of the protests I felt like there was nothing I could do right and ultimately I decided that the people I follow on Instagram 100% do not dictate how I should feel or what I should post about or what I should be bullied into posting about. My journey starts at home in my own hows and I was just so OVER everyone that made me feel like shit for many different reasons. The best thing for me to do was cut myself off once again. I realize how damaging this could be to someone who makes her income online right now, but my mental health is much more important. I honestly don’t know if and when I will be “back” and even then I may just stick to the food. I haven’t thought things all the way through and I probably won’t for a while. In the meantime, I am going to try and start posting more on Youtube because it’s much more enjoyable to me.
- Blog Makeover Pivot: In my last update, I was super excited to announce that the blog was getting a little makeover! After scheduling things out and hiring someone, I’m sad to say that things fell through on their end. I really am trying to be sympathetic to the personal situation that happened there, but it really sucks as it was over a month completely wasted. I thought hard about what the reason was for this and decided to take a shot at changing my blog theme myself to fix a lot of the issues. I switched my theme, spent a few hours updating the aesthetic and it looks SO much better and costed less. I still would like some branding and logo work done and I am in contact with a few people now about it, but it’s not completely necessary right now and overall I am happy that I took matters into my own hands and made it work somewhat.
- Traffic and RPM’s Increasing: With cases increasing, people are still online more than ever this summer. Advertisers are putting money back into their budgets and because of that, I was able to see a nice increase in RPM’s and even a little bit of traffic. I know in July this will taper off until September, but I feel confident about the direction and will hopefully have a fruitful rest of 2020.
- Adthrive Continues To Be A Great Decision: So far, I am extremely happy with Adthrive. I do miss the community that Mediavine has but I can’t express how important it was for me to make a better financial decision. I am so excited to see what the future brings with this ad network!
- Setting Expectations for Work In Q3: At the time of writing this, it is July 1st. We officially have 1.5 months to find a place to live and move out. That seems ok except Mike is not allowed to leave the state with the military restrictions and so we have to look and find a place VERY close to our move out date which is very stressful. In the meantime, I need to get the house packed and as ready as I can get it which is not proving to be easy with a growth spurting, sleep regressing and teething 9 month old. I am EXHAUSTED already. With that said, I need to keep things light with the blog and have very little expectations of what I will be able to accomplish in the next couple months. Realistically, I probably won’t be able to get back on a true schedule until September or October and even then we won’t have any childcare which will throw a wrench into everything. I just have to hope that the work I have done preparing for this up until now has been worth it and will pay off for the rest of the year.
