  • Are Niche Sites Dying? Plus January 2023 Writing Report

    Are Niche Sites Dying? Plus January 2023 Writing Report

    While I’ve been in the online writing world since 2013, I’ve heard variations of the “are niche sites dying?” question since Day 1. Sometimes the question was, “is blogging dying?” or “are information websites a bad idea today?” or even “are blogs still a thing?” and there are all sorts of answers online. Here is […]

  • 2022 Report & Year in Review

    2022 Report & Year in Review

    Making New Year’s Resolutions hasn’t typically been my favorite thing. Don’t get me wrong – I love making goals as much as the next gal. Looking back to see how I did, compared to those goals (and realizing that I’m an over-planner) can be disheartening. Thankfully, I’m human – and I learned to change how […]

    December 2022 Writing Report

    ‘Tis the season for another writing report! Okay, mostly, I feel like a broken record every month beginning, where I lament that yet another month has slipped by. So starting with a season-appropriate pseudo greeting seemed more apropos. Plus, I got to use the word apropos, a highly underutilized word in regular writing vernacular. Because […]

  • November 2022 Writing Report

    November 2022 Writing Report

    It’s November and another NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), though I usually coopt it for website publishing. Even so, it’s another month where I try to focus on publishing a good quantity of quality content. Well, who am I kidding? That’s every month’s goal. This is just one month a year where if I meet […]

    October 2022 Writing Report

    Hello, October. September was another content warrior challenge month, so it felt like it rushed on past. Another content warrior challenge was attempted and completed, so that feels great! Now it’s on to October and moving towards doing the equivalent of a content warrior challenge every month. Daunting? Yup. Doable? Also yup. My team is […]

  • September 2022 Writing Report

    September 2022 Writing Report

    I’m shocked that it’s already September, but here we are. No amount of denial will change that fact. I’m working hard on all of the fronts: getting the kids into the current year’s school schedule, continuing to build and scale the business, coming to grips with the fact that everything keeps changing, focusing on eating […]

    August 2022 Writing Report

    Having sky-high goals can be an amazing thing. They’re what get you off your bum, jumping and running to reach new heights. However, if your goals are so high that attaining them becomes impossible, they cross the line into depressing. Looking back at my goals for the last few months, they’ve been too high. I’ve […]

  • July 2022 Writing Report

    July 2022 Writing Report

    Summers may be awesome, but they’re also full of lies. At least, that’s how I see them right now. You start the summer thinking there’s plenty of time. Then you blink and it’s almost mid-July (and you’re not even done with the monthly reports yet – fixing that now!). In any case, June felt especially […]

  • June 2022 Writing Report

    June 2022 Writing Report

    I’ve decided that sometimes math is weird. Looking back over the last year or so, I can see that I’ve been able to add a digit to my gross writing revenue. Dividing the new total by the year-old data, it would be easy to say that I’ve multiplied revenue by 10 times. However, that’s not […]

  • May 2022 Writing Report

    May 2022 Writing Report

    April flew right on by, and the end especially was an amazing month that last week or so. Normally, I’m super focused on hitting the publishing metrics, but in April, I got the opportunity to attend an in-person mastermind in Las Vegas. Just for the record, I’ve decided I’m not a huge fan of the […]

  • April 2022 Writing Report

    April 2022 Writing Report

    March was another content challenge month for Income School, and boy howdy did I spend a lot of time trying to get things published! Sadly, I didn’t get all of the content written during the month published. I’ve still got about 15 or so left in the queue. However, I did get 25 articles published […]

  • March 2022 Report: How the Publishing World is Changing

    March 2022 Report: How the Publishing World is Changing

    Before we get to the March niche site reports, I want to talk briefly about how the publishing world is changing. And don’t get me wrong – change is good. Most of the time, anyway. I’ll talk about that first – and why it’s relevant. Then I’ll dive into the niche site reports, and tie […]
