Starting out, can I earn a monthly income from my blog?

Ok, I’ve decided to try the same thing that many people are already doing, and supposedly succeeding with as well. Earning a monthly income from blogging.

Initially I set this site up in the hopes that it would become an affiliate gold mine, using an automatic script (yes I’m lazy), pulling products from Amazon and then automatically pushing them to Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest and Google+.

The overall outcome was meant to be:-

  1. Get people to visit my site
  2. Click on a product link
  3. Purchase product on Amazon
  4. Check the bank – yay!

Has it worked out that way?

Well, no, not yet – however, one thing I did notice was the number of visitors rose.

Now I started this venture on 3rd February 2017 and the graph below is actual visitors, the majority of which are coming from Facebook (you can see where it suddenly starts to lift, which is where I began). The drop in the graph (I’m hoping) is when I reduced the amount I published to social media.

Impressive?

Well, I thought so, and it may not bring in the income I’m hoping for – only time will tell.

I will also be posting to my blog, so not so lazy after all, as I’ll have to think about what I’m writing 😛

Is it really is possible to make a serious income from a blog? Who knows? Well, hopefully I’ll be able to answer yes to that when it happens. (pma)

It would be nice to be able to meet the people who successfully earn a monthly income from blogging, just so I know I’m hopefully not wasting my time in trying this.

Either way, I’m still going to try so wish me luck.

If anyone is reading this and is earning an income from blogging, get in touch – I’d love to hear from you.
