Sorry for the delay in getting this posted! As I write this, it is the end of April. Oops! Anyway, here’s how February went.
Things exploded for me in February. At the end of January, my Low Carb Sex-in-a-Pan took off. This carried into February. In January I only had 175 views and in February this escalated to 1,271 views! Holy smokes! That’s a huge increase, especially because February is a short month. My revenue increased with the number of views as well.
As you can see, I’m still working my way up to a full-time income, but the growth in one month is amazing!
So what did I do to cause this growth? Not that much… Not very helpful, is it? My low carb Sex-in-a-Pan brought in a huge following. I posted it back in February 2017. Why is it taking off now a year later? I have no idea!! But I’ll take it! I continued to post through Tailwind, always making sure my queue was full. I also continued to use Google Adsense. 100% of my revenue is currently through Google Adsense. I also use Share-a-Sale and Amazon Affiliates, but I have not generated income through these affiliate programs.
I had 3 posts at the end of January that were all Valentine’s Day related. A really cute heart cake / cupcake topper, Low Carb Red Velvet Cake, and DIY Chocolate Covered Strawberries. This helped to boost my viewership as well.
At the end of February, I posted a Low Carb Mint Chocolate Delight recipe, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. I took my popular Sex-in-a-Pan recipe and converted it to be mint. Not to toot my own horn, but I think the mint spin-off is better than the original! *Spoiler Alert* This version took off and really made a splash in March. Instead of investing hours on new recipes, I think I might try using my base recipes in new ways. For instance, blueberry muffins can easily be converted into cranberry orange muffins.
Until next time, Happy Baking!
