Hello! Hello! I hope your February was spectacular! If this is your first time visiting, WELCOME! I’m April and I’ve been blogging here since 2008. Just this past year though, I decided to get serious about things – so last August I started buckling down and (inspired by Pat Flynn) also began publishing these income reports as a way to keep myself accountable and (hopefully) help others along the way. If you have any questions or suggestions, please please feel free to ask in the comments or shoot me an email.
Thoughts and Things To Do
- This month was a bit discouraging and I don’t think March will be a whole lot better, but I’m determined to keep moving forward and learning from my missteps. On my to-do list in the coming months is: finishing the ebook, redesigning my header/sidebar, creating a media landing page/media kit, finding a printer-friendly option for my recipes, and find more ways to diversify income.
- I am absolutely in *love* with my Lowel Ego lights (purchased last month). I don’t have to worry about having daylight any more and that has taken a huge amount of stress off. I’m also seriously thrilled with the vinyl backdrops I got from Swanky Prints and can’t wait for an excuse to order more. You can see them both at work in this Lemon Cookies post. I took those pictures at 2AM on my coffee table!
- This was the first month I started collecting receipts for food shopping. I noticed I was buying foods specifically for blogging and cooking more than my family could eat (whereas in the past I fit it all into our grocery budget). So now if I’m buying specifically for a post, I will itemize the purchase.
- How about you? Did you try something new this month that worked? Do you have any questions about what’s happening here? Hit me up in the comments!
