April 2022 Niche Site Summary
April was a record breaking month for my niche site – across the board. It had the most traffic ever in a single month, and the highest earnings to-date.
My blog officially made more than $20,000 dollars in a single month and passed $100,000 in total earnings.
It’s still hard to believe the site is averaging over $670. Every. Single. Day.
I remember back in September 2021 (just 8 short months ago) being in complete disbelief that my blog was able to cover our monthly mortgage payment (I had made $2,623 that month).
And just 8 months before that, I was bragging to my wife about how my blog was going to pay for our unborn son’s diapers (I made $377 in January 2021).
The exponential growth of this site as of late has been astonishing.
I’ve logged a ton of hours, and put in a lot of work over these past 2.5 years, so having it pay off in such a big way has been incredibly rewarding.
But the best part about having a record breaking April is that my family and I took a full week off. I only published once during those 7-days (Declan insisted) and I sat on the beach for the rest.
But my site kept humming along without me.
That’s one of the great benefits of content sites – you don’t need to work on them daily, weekly, or even monthly in some cases. It’s not like the YouTube algorithm – which punishes you for not publishing on a consistent schedule.
Any ways, it was an exceptional month and I’m incredibly grateful. On to the data…
