When I first started back in May of 2,016 I had the free WordPress plan. As I was doing so many more reviews then, I was using up my allotted storage quickly. I then went for the cheapest paid plan, that allowed me to remove the ‘WordPress’ from my blog URL.
Even compressing my photos, I was getting close to using my storage back in September of last year. I had no choice but to go for the Premium plan, that costs $8 a month, paid yearly. With this plan I could use their WordAds, and was hoping that it would cover the cost of my blog.
November, and December were good months, and I was excited that if it carried on, I wouldn’t be out of pocket. January, February, and March went really downhill, but all of a sudden my blog took a huge turn at the beginning of this month. I have already had as many views as last month, and we are only halfway through.
The ad views have been between 600 and 1,300 a day, and although the average CMP changes daily, I am feeling that I have hit the number I need to finally pay for my blog. It’s taken me 3 years to do so.
I am sure many are making good money on their blogs, but I am happy to break even. Maybe towards the end of the year I might even make some money. Who knows?
I wrote this to give new bloggers an idea of what I have achieved over my 3 year period here on WordPress.
