Full disclosure: this post does NOT include a recipe. Sorry about that- I promise I’ll cook something extra delicious and share it with you the next time!
Instead, this post shares how I am making money on my blog. Back in April, I wrote Bowl of Delicious’s First Quarterly Income Report. In that post, I talked about how I made just over $1000 in the span of the first three months of 2015. I’m happy to report that I’ve made almost $400 more- for a total of $1387.54- in the second quarter (April, May, and June) of 2015!!
In this post I’ll break down where that money comes from and talk a bit about what I’m doing to increase my revenue. And by increase my revenue, I really mean increase my traffic, since more readers=more moolah. It is my hope that these kind of posts help other bloggers, or would-be bloggers, see a realistic income report from a new(ish) blog, in order to a) be helpful! and b) help broaden my audience.
If this doesn’t interest you and you’re purely here for the food, I completely understand. Go check out my recipe section and look for something that strikes your fancy, and I’ll see you next time! If this IS interesting to you… read on :-)
