My 2018 Results

Last Update: January 04, 2019

Just a quick update for those of you/us that like reading how things are going for people here in WA. This year was a pretty good one for me, although I definitely wasn't able to dedicate as much time as I'd hoped... my site has 32 posts now and is about 14 months old.

After expenses, my total earnings were $4,450 CDN (approx $3320 USD)

I'm really hoping this year I hit my first 4 figure month... maybe more than once. It's a bit of a seasonal niche, so I expect a few slower months until the weather warms up. Hopefully come Spring!

Overall, I do consider 2018 to be the year that I've made this work. Well enough, at least, to meet my initial goal (of $500-1000/month) for me not to have to re-enter the workforce part time next year when my kids are both in school. So, yay! WA has helped another family have the lifestyle they want, in my case, to be there for my kids!

Wishing you/us all a great 2019!! Cheers,

Marlaine

Wow! That is excellent! Congratulations. You are doing very well with only 32 posts. I am sure 2019 will be even bigger since you know what to do.

What is your niche? You switched to a different niche so I assume this profit is from your second site?

Yeah, the profit comes from my second site, which is mostly product reviews. My first site still brought in $300 without my touching it, so I suppose that's good.
I'd LOVE to have more time to commit to this... feels like 32 isn't that many posts. I think if I had more coming in and more consistently, I'd rank higher. Oh well.

Congratulations, that is so awesome, they grow up so fast it can feel as though you blinked and missed it.
Wishing you all the best in 2019.

Thanks Sherri. Yes, I really don't want to miss it :)
The days are long but the years are short.
Sometimes I miss my old life working in an office doing adult stuff, and wouldn't mind going back, but overall, my husband and I are really glad I can be there for the kids when they get home and on holidays, etc.

Yes, I remember very well wondering if I actually had a name, or if it was just "MOM!!" and typically at the top of someones lungs.
Now the quiet drives me mad and I so miss hearing those shouts.
Enjoy them, play, be silly, make a mess!! You'll miss it desperately when your house is always quiet and pristine. ;)
Cheers,
Sherri

Hi Marlaine. This is really great news, especially as your site is seasonal and does not have hundreds of posts - it shows that what you are writing is good quality stuff so well done you.
And great news about having more time to spend with your family too.
I look forward to hearing more of your success in 2019.
