June 2017 Income and Traffic Report

Welcome to Budget with Belle monthly Income and Traffic Report. If you’re new to Budget with Belle, you may be wondering why I would want to publish my income report online.

This post contains Affiliate links. Please read Disclaimer.

I know, it’s a bit taboo to disclose what you made/lost. I wrestled with this idea of publishing my income and expenses online for awhile now. But, after much thought, why the heck not?! So, going forward (until I decide to stop), I’ve decided to create a monthly blog traffic, income, and goals report.

I have a few reasons why I decided to start doing this, but here are my big 3:

As a new blogger, I’ve been inspired by reading other bloggers monthly reports. Specifically, what they’ve learned, what they’d do differently, and other strategies that helped them grow their following.
Pinterest is chalked full of blog income reports! I could probably spend hours reading them all.  Hopefully, my blog reports will help other newbie bloggers as well.
I’m eager to share what I’ve learned over the past 30 days.  SEO, Pinterest, Social Media, etc…There is SO much to learn in the blogging world! Though it’s sometimes overwhelming, I’m looking forward to becoming a blogging subject matter expert.


By publishing my goals in such a public forum, I’ll be able to hold myself accountable more than I would if I just wrote down a few goals in my notebook. Plus, I’d like to connect with other bloggers who might be aiming toward the same goals.

If you are interested in starting a blog of your own, I created a tutorial that will help you start a blog of your own for cheap, starting at only $3.95 per month (this low price is only through my link) for blog hosting. In addition to the low pricing, you will receive a free website domain (a $15 value) through my Bluehost link if you purchase, at least, 12 months of blog hosting.

My plans for my blog.

“All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible.” —Orison Swett Marden

It’s important to have a plan and goals. They help you stay motivated and focused. I’m sharing my blog goals publicly in hopes it’ll help keep me accountable and hopefully help others along the way. Below are goals I have for Budget with Belle:

  • Earn $3,000/month. I would like to be able to stay home with our Daughter without causing financial stress to our family.
  • Grow Budget with Belle to 10,000 monthly page viewsThis would be fantastic to hit! I would love to see how the blog grows, and the readers that can benefit from my experiences.
  • Create a product to sell. Creating an evergreen product will help make my first goal of staying home with our Daughter possible by diversifying my income.
  • Grow my e-mail to 1,000 loyal readers. I’ve heard a lot of good can come out of one’s email list. I hope to be able to build and foster connections this year.
  • Get consistent with posting on Budget with Belle posts. I think the way I’ll be able to accomplish this goal is by getting ahead with writing blog post.
  • Promote the blog better. Currently, as you know my numbers are low. But, I’ll like that to change. I’m going to only focus on these 3 social media platforms at this time
    • Pinterest – 2,000
    • Instagram – 1,000
    • Facebook – 1,000 Likes
  • Continue learning and improving. On all aspect of my life. Especially this blog. I hope to someday grow it into a successful business.

If you’re wondering how I’d manage to make money with such low page views? Well, look no further. It was all with the help of:

Michelle’s Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing Course, the course went live in July of 2016. I purchased it in December 2016, and it was one of the best investments I’ve made for the blog. This course has helped increase my affiliate income drastically with very low traffic. I can only imagine my results with more traffic!

The course has 6 modules, over 30 lessons, several worksheets, bonuses, an extremely helpful and exclusive Facebook group, and more. Michelle goes through everything that you need to know about affiliate marketing, such as:

  • A quick introduction to affiliate marketing and how it works
  • The benefits of affiliate marketing
  • The exact steps she’s taken to earn over $500,000 from a single blog post
