My first sale!

Last Update: February 25, 2019

Today I just learned I had my first sale. I posted a blog that is more like a news of electric pressure cookers that are on sale this week on amazon. I think it also helps that I requested many comments through SiteComment (about 20 requests) with the credits that I stored up which lead 100 users to view my post. But I'm just so thankful that my blog does help people making the right choices for healther cooking and save money from the sale and their future cooking.

I know one sale isn't much but I felt like I won $1000. I can imagine if I had 1000 viewers from organic traffic, or even 10,000 views. Oh man that would be great.

Unfortunatly, I can't put in the 50hr/week into my website that I hoped for as my husband and I need real cash flow for about 2 months to pay off our credit card debt that we got from our wedding last year haha. I'll have to work part-time as a DoorDash courier during the peak hours. So for now, I'll be putting in 25hr to 30hr per week. Hopefully that will be enough to achieve my goal of making $5k to $10k this year for my first year.
