Ok, I swore I’d never post these income report type blogs, but yet here I am following the trend. As many of you know I created The Busy Mom Diary as a journal, a real-live diary where I could jot down my thoughts on my latest parenting fails. However, it quickly became something that I wanted to share more publicly. I don’t have a specific niche, but I’d say I fall somewhere into the category of a Mommy Blogger. I share parenting adventures, product reviews, the occasional recipe and most importantly I share whatever the heck I want too – afterall it is my blog. I am also using my blog as a platform to speak out and raise awareness about mental illness and bullying. I hope to take a more active role in this venture.
I didn’t create this blog and embark on this adventure to make money. This is a hobby and I don’t spend too much time promoting or seeking out opportunities. I am also still a newbie when it comes to the blogging world and if I’m being serious, I’m just faking my way around. I really have no idea what I am doing most days.
I’m calling this my first quarterly income report and it will cover the period from October 2016 to December 2016. This is when I established my site and really started to entertain the idea that I could make a little bit of money – my aim has always been to make enough to allow my site to run smoothly without any out of pocket expenses.
Alright, let’s get to the numbers!!
