Third Month Blogging | Making Money & Finding My Niche
My THIRD Month Blogging
It is that time of the month again, the blogging update. Like every month there are strides and there are setbacks as I continue working towards building my blog. Overall, my first half of November towered over my whole month of October, this was an exciting improvement! Let’s get into it.
Last’s Month’s Goals: And Did I Accomplish Them?
- Reach 15 Followers on Pinterest: So Close!
- Hit 1,500 Followers on Twitter: Also, Incredibly Close!
- Hit 300 Followers on Instagram: Once again, close but no cigar.
- Create an Email Newsletter: Nope
Stats & Gains
Instagram: 280 Followers (28 new followers)
Twitter: 1,397 Followers (232 new followers)
Pinterest: 14 Followers & 27.3k Monthly Views (8 new followers and + 20.7k views)
Am I Making Money?
I am not looking to get rich quick, and these stats prove just that. I have, however, taken on a couple more affiliate programs. This is very much still in the beginning stages and I am still learning how to make the best of these opportunities.
ShopStyle Collection Affiliate: $0.00
Amazon Affiliate: $0.00
Target Affiliate: $0.00
Google Adsense: $0.08
I have currently signed on for a one-year self-hosted subscription with SiteGround after taking advantage of their one-month trial opportunity which most other self-hosted sites do not provide. So far, I have made great gains by doing so!
Doubling my visitors has been a very motivating turn of events, I guess hard work pays off after all!
Setting Next Month’s Goals
Setting goals each month is a great way to stay accountable and to keep track of your progress. I am excited to look back a year down the road to see where it all started.

Finding My Niche
Three months ago when I created Fall for Maine I had no clue what it was going to become, and I am still pretty unsure. However, it has evolved slowly from a beauty blog into something more my style. With exciting moves coming in 2018 I would like to see Fall for Maine become a lifestyle, home decor niche that features all the things I adore.
