July Income and Traffic Report
And just like that it’s August! July was such a productive month. I also happened to turn 30 years old and I’m already feeling wiser haha. On top of my birthday trip, bachelorette parties and school, I have managed to stay on top of blog. Yay me!
I crushed some goals and kept my head above water. I feel really good about my growth this month. My pageviews skyrocketed! I went from 5,805 page views to 13,354 page views. I really can’t beleive it! I’ve been focusing on consistency, quality, and engagement with my post and it looks like that’s working great.

TOP TEN TRAFFIC SOURCES
SOCIAL MEDIA REFERRALS
SOCIAL MEDIA WORKS
This isn’t new. Social media is the source of most of my referrals to my site. Having pinnable images, quality content, and being engaged with your followers is crucial. Pinterest has done well for me and being part of group boards also has given me more engagement. Instagram is so hard to get people to your site but I’m happy with almost hitting 100 sessions with it. Twitter…well I obviously need to work on that. I didn’t even know how twitter worked until a couple months into blogging but I’m getting the hang of it slowly. .
