If you ever have the misfortune luck to ever meet me at a conference, you will quickly find out that I am a data nerd. I love analytics, the technical side of blogging is my favorite part, and yes, I even enjoy SEO (something virtually no one anywhere ever says).

So it should be no surprise that when it comes to tracking blogging income, I have a spreadsheet for that and I update it every single week.

As it turns out, I recently passed my 400th week of tracking my blogging income (which for those who don't want to do the math is nearly eight years), and I thought it was time to share some insights I've learned along the way.

Some of these insights are helpful to bloggers outright, and others are reasons why you, too, should track your income at a set interval (if not weekly, at least monthly). So let's dive into them now!

Niche Product Site Case Study #3 – Finally Seeing Growth

Welcome to the third entry into our niche product site case study series.

In this case study, we are tracking the performance of niche product sites that I created between 2020 and 2022, what is working, what is not, income and traffic changes, and lessons learned along the way.

The first site we will look at is The Grape Pursuit, a wine blog I started in early 2020. The second site is Hipster Homesteaders, a home & garden plus food & beverage blog we started in late 2021 (where we merged two lagging product sites, a coffee blog and a sous vide blog, into a broader umbrella branding to allow for more content to be produced with other topics).

So, how are they performing? Let's check it out!

We like to see creators getting their due when it comes to the content they create.

But apparently not quite as much as the creators of FYPM (F*** You Pay Me), a service which calls itself the “glassdoor for influencers.”

We're not exactly going to deliver earth-shattering news when suggesting that in the world of tech, things are changing rapidly.

Some things that we figured would always be a part of our tech ecosystem may not be, while trends we could have never expected to be a part of our life may become commonplace.

Something that has changed dramatically in recent years is password management, and big news out of Microsoft suggests that the future may be passwordless.

Note: This feature is still being rolled out and we have some reports from users outside of the USA that this feature may not be available just yet. As such, if you do not have it yet keep checking. We only know this works in the USA at the moment. (But if you have it and live elsewhere, message us!)

More often than not, a new feature on Facebook causes us to groan. It is quite rare that they roll out something new and actually useful to business owners, but when they do there is reason to celebrate.

So when they rolled out the ability to bulk invite people to like your Facebook page in just a few clicks, we were giddy with excitement. This is a tool we've been wanting them to roll out for years, and is going to make all of our lives easier in just a few simple clicks!

So in this one, we thought we'd share more about where you can find this new tool, how to use it, and why it is so helpful.

Shout out to Uncovering PA for this great tip!
