June Report: Blog Traffic, Word Count, and Income

Like to read income reports from bloggers? On Writing Abby, Abby posts the blog's traffic numbers, the word counts of the blog and her books, as well as Writing Abby's income. May Report: Traffic, Word Count, Income // Writing AbbyBefore we get any further, I’d like to try and explain my absence. A few days ago, I contracted a rather vicious case of hay fever. So, I’ve been sick in bed for the past week. Still, I’ve managed to stop being a wimp and pull myself together to write this post.

Anyway, enough with my whining let’s start analyzing. Shall we?

Blog Traffic:

This month surpassed my expectations, in multiple ways. Again, during the course of this past month, I’ve met a lot of great people. (Ya’ll know who you are.) Writing Abby surpasses its previous pageviews for the month of May, bringing the grand total up to 1,622.

Here are some things that maybe boosted this number:

Top Referrers:

  1. Pinterest: 175
  2. Search Engines: 44
  3. Twitter: 25
  4. WordPress Dashboard/Reader: 14/11 = 25
  5. Blogger.com: 9

(This is, by far, the most successful post on Writing Abby to date. It’s kind of surprising but it kind of isn’t. The post wasn’t as “in-depth” as I wanted it to be. The post was supposed to have a quiz, more resources, etc. But, deadlines.)

Blog’s Word Count:

This is always an interesting statistic. I’ve writing for the blog more so than my work-in-progress. That has to change, I know. I need to work on that next month, especially since it’s Camp NaNoWriMo. *cue ominous music*

ROV’s Word Count:

You can see how this stat barely moved. I mean, it ain’t peanuts, but it ain’t gold nuggets, if ya’ll know what I mean. That’s a shame, really, because I’m in love with this story. Isn’t that what makes us write in the first place?

Adios for now, you wonderful people.
