September was another really great month for me! I spent a lot of time working on sponsored posts, and I did my first bit of work for Pollinate Media which is a blogger media group that I’d been dying to get accepted into for months now.
Other than that, there wasn’t anything totally new that I tried.
And actually, it was extremely difficult for me this month because I was trying to juggle writing for my blog and writing my book.
If you haven’t heard yet, yes, I’m writing a book. You can read a little more about it here. Just so you know, I’m holding a contest that could win you a shout out in my book, so check out my book update post to learn how to enter. I’m still accepting submissions.
And while I’m super excited about it, I’m a little behind on my deadlines, so I need to spend most of October focusing on that, not on sponsored blog writing.
Joe actually told me that I’m not allowed to take on new sponsored blog writing until after the wedding, because I’ve been a giant stress-ball trying to juggle a full time job, blogging, writing my book, our moving into our new house at the end of the month, and last minute wedding stuff for our November 7th wedding.
LOL how on earth could I be stressed??
So yea, I have a bit of sponsored work left to finish up for October, but I know that October and November won’t be as successful monetarily for me as the past few months have.
But that’s life.
Right now I’ve got OTHER super important stuff going on that needs my attention.
Once we get back from our honeymoon, I can get back to it.
I can also spend more time focusing on my Etsy print shop, since I’m having so much fun with that.
I’ll also be looking at ways to better automate my social media so I can spend less time promoting my work manually on Pinterest, and more time writing content.
So that’s it! My September Blog Income Report!
