April Blog Income Report (And Traffic, Too)

I’m not sure which phrase best describes April for me. It could be either “April showers bring May flowers” or “April fools!” Both would probably describe the mixed bag April was after coming off of an awesome March.

2016 Blog and Freelance Writing Goals

Setting Goals for 2016 My how a lot can change in a year! As I look back over my 2015 New Year’s Resolutions journal entry (yes, I keep a journal), I see a lot of naivety in my brainstorming and goals. I account that naivety to a few reasons: I was still learning how blogging and freelance writing works, let alone how to make money doing it I was only 6 months…
