Let me jump right in and tell you story about how we nearly TRIPLED our page views in only one month (an increase of 28,699 to be exact).

Liz and I had just started the blog, and while we were excited our Mom’s were reading our blog, we knew we could be reaching more people. And the idea of connecting with productivity geeks like ourselves, got us really excited. I’ve been out of the blogging game for about 3 years and a lot has changed in that time.
I was looking at organizing pins one evening, (read: my wild Saturday night) and I stumbled across Just a Girl and Her Blog. Not only were the organizing posts amazing, but I found myself sucked into their collection of traffic and income reports.
Abby and her husband Donnie had tracked their income and traffic from the start, providing updates each month with what they tried, what worked, and what didn’t. Admittedly, I spent hours reading their reports and amazed at their growth. Within 2 years of blogging, Donnie was able to leave his full-time job and join Abby blogging full time.
They make enough money blogging to support a family, and to build a new home.
I hear so many bloggers talk about doing that, but no one was breaking it down for me.
Then on one of the income reports, I saw they were gong to share their strategies and techniques in an ebook. I’m a sucker for a short cut, and for the cost of just a few trips to Starbucks (I did the $25 option), I thought, what have I got to lose.
This was hands down the best investment I could have made early on with our blog. I read the ebook within the course of 2 days, made a list of the actionable suggestions they made, and got started right away.
This was our traffic in February:
And then this was our traffic in March:
Within ONE month, we nearly tripled our blog traffic, and have continued to see massive growth month over month since.
(Update: We had over 100k page views the next month! Check out our June Traffic & Income Report)
