July 2020 In Review

  • Adthrive – Super happy with Adthrive ad revenue, down from what I typically expect from my blog traffic numbers but still slightly up from June.  Due to COVID-19 everyone is seeing budget cuts right now, and the ad industry is no different!  Budgets seem to have been cut across the board, so ad revenue is considerably down, but appears to be working its way back up.
  • Etsy Sales – Etsy sales are looking great and are still up this month, but down a bit from June.  Pattern sales increase is likely in relation to more people spending time online and looking for crafts to do at home during quarantine.
  • Youtube – 14,800 Youtube subscribers.
  • Amazon Affiliate – Amazon affiliate earnings are down this month.  This income really seems to vary, and not super dependable for me.
  • Sponsored Content – This will always vary – I had one sponsored project this month.
  • Guest for Q&A – This was a one-off freelance opportunity
  • Blog posts – I had no posts this month.  I temporarily went back to my desk job (to fill in for the person who replaced me when I left to blog full-time), so blogging bandwidth was running thin!
  • Final Thoughts – Considering I did not publish a post this month and still netted over $2,000 – I’ll take it!
