Making Money From A Blog – June Blog Income Report
I strive to help others realize that you don’t need to work a ‘job’ for someone else.
You can be in charge of your life and work for yourself by making money from a blog.
And you can make a damn better living from it, too. All you need to do is start.
Making money from blogging is my fulltime job. In addition to blogging about affiliate marketing here at HerPaperRoute.com, I also run several other niche blogs.
June was a busy month at HerPaperRoute.com.
Although I didn’t post as many posts here as I usually do, I actually had a lot going on behind the scenes this month.

Blog Page Views In June:
Traffic on HerPaperRoute.com doubled in June, I’m happy to say!
In May I had 20,100 pageviews and in June I had 41,232 page views! Yowza!
This was thanks to two things:
1. I’ve really been working on improving the SEO of my blog, and have been editing all of my old blog posts with better SEO techniques.
This has really helped with my ranking on Google, and has been sending lots of new organic traffic! You can follow my SEO tips by enrolling in my free SEO & Keyword research course.
2. And second, in June I was developing and testing my new Pinterest strategy.
Pinterest had some big changes earlier this Summer, so I was busy fine-tuning my new pinning technique and improving my Pinterest SEO. It paid off!
Not only did I improve my Pinterest traffic by 60%, but I also had 4 pins go viral grew my Pinterest account from 2,500 followers to 4,100 followers in just 2 weeks.
