Huh, how fast these six months have passed.
In this post, you will read the Blog Income Report for January 2018, but I’ll remind you where I started from.
BOB for Her is my second site. When I started the first site I decided to be in health niche, knowing they were very popular. However, as I advise other moms who want to start their blog, when you start a site, write about something you like or you will be bored quickly.
When I started BOB for Her 6 months ago, I knew that I would enjoy making this site. Before that, I worked for more than 10 years as Event and Social Media Manager and I love that job!
Some companies still hiring me to do promotions.
So writing about this is something that never bothers me, especially as new apps are constantly appearing.
So, the goal of this site is to help moms develop their online business, and social networks are an inevitable part of it!
In order to track my progress, I decided to start writing a monthly blog report. If you’ve missed some of them, here are the links:
Frankly, I personally expected faster progress, primarily organic visitors (these are those who search on Google, Yahoo or Bing), but Google still did not like me.
In fact, when I analyzed my posts, I realized that I overstated the number of links to other sites or products probably that is the reason. What will be one of the tasks this month is to read all posts and delete some of the links.
Another thing is that Google “does not take seriously” young sites. So I will need more patience. I hope that in the next 2-3 months the number of “organic” visitors will increase.
FEBRUARY 2018 BLOG STATS
A number of blog posts: 6
If you read the previous Blog Report, I wrote that my goal is to set 8 articles in February.
I did not make it, February is so short!
A number of users: 1,473
Although I have never fulfilled the desire to see a number of 2000 people in one month, this number is not bad! That’s even 30% more than in January!
Page views: 3,355
3 MOST READING articles last month:
Email subscribers: this month – 84, a total of 6 months – 989!

BOB for Her Facebook page: 2,318 likes
Great! Last month goal is fulfilled. My Facebook page has exceeded 2300 likes.
Facebook group BOB for Her: 1,210 members
Last month, I did not do much for the Facebook group. Unfortunately, this was reflected in the number of members – only one new! This is a great group and I promise that I will be more engaged in it. Be free to join!
Pinterest: 1,122 followers
Another accomplished goal! This month was the target of 1,100 Pinterest followers.
If you have not read my post, then you do not know that I am always praising Tailwind for my success at Pinterest. A phenomenal tool that makes it easy to set pins.
Tailwind sent me an email today, so I will not tell you anything, just look at the picture below!

FEBRUARY INCOME REPORT
This is not the best month for earnings on the site. In total, I earned $ 50 from only two sources: Wealthy Affiliate and Google Adsense.
What I am very pleased to see is a constant cash flow from Wealthy Affiliate. They have an excellent affiliate program and I really recommend them!
Google Adsense – $ 25.5
Wealthy Affiliate – $ 24.5
TOTAL FEBRUARY INCOME: $50
Wealthy Affiliate – $ 29
IAs a Wealthy Affiliate premium member, I pay a monthly subscription of $29. For this money, I get lessons and courses in all areas of blogging and monetization of the site, SEO, affiliate marketing and social networks. Every Friday we have video lessons for 1.5 hours, as well as live help 24/7 + access to their affiliate program. I think this is more than a good price for what I get.
Fiverr – $ 30
Fiverr is an online service where you can find everything you need for your blog. Creative Writing, design, video editing, web programming … Also, you can also offer your services if you have the talent for something like that. If you look at the profiles on Fiverr, you will see that many people make good money from their services.
I use the services of the editor because it is my second language in English and I do not want my posts to be written badly. (Blog reports are the only articles I myself write and edit since it has a lot of information)
Tailwind – $15
Mostly every month, a few people log in to the Tailwind VIA MY LINK (they get $15 and I get $15), so I’m always in the plus.
TOTAL FEBRUARY INCOME: $50
TOTAL FEBRUARY EXPENSES: – $74
PROFIT: – $24
This is the first month since I started this site that I did not make a profit!
Do not worry, I’m sure I’ll keep on going because I know you’re with me and follow this journey.
Did I reach February goals?
Do not be very disappointed with my unrealized goals in February. Immediately after them, the explanation follows why I did not fulfill them:
▪ Get 2,500 Facebook Followers – FAILED! – gained 2,318 followers.
▪ Get 1,100 Pinterest Followers– WIN! 1,122 Pinterest followers!
▪ 100,000 Avg. Monthly Viewers on Pinterest – WIN! 119,911 Avg. Monthly Viewers thanks to Tailwind!
▪ Hit 2000 unique site users – FAILED! This month I got 1,473 unique site visitors
▪ Post 8 Articles – FAILED! I wrote and posted 6 articles in February.
▪ Earn $200 – FAILED! – earned $50
And now the explanation: I fell in love with Instagram!
I already told you that I love the Social Network, but I’ve been out of touch with Instagram for a long time.
In February I activated my old account (I only had 3 images) and started learning about Instagram. I spent hours and hours searching for hashtags, changing my description of my profile 10 times, making and arranging photos, and of course collecting followers.
I got 487 followers.
So, please, please… follow me on Instagram!
March strategy and goals
I am absolutely sure that my obsession with Instagram will continue in March. That does not sound like a strategy, but as soon as I make an Instagram strategy, you’ll first find out.
For now, the only strategy is to publish pictures once a day, or once in two days, and follow the women and moms interested in blogging and online business.
▪ 2,500 Facebook Followers – can you help me reach the number of 2500? Click here to like my page
▪ 1,000 Instagram Followers!
▪ 1,300 Pinterest Followers – Here is my Pinterest account
▪ 150,000 Avg. Monthly Viewers on Pinterest! WoW!
▪ Hit 2000 unique site users – I still hope to reach this number
▪ Post 8 Articles!
Maybe I’ll concentrate and succeed in writing 8 posts. Still, March has a few days more than February 🙂
