December 2016 Income & Traffic Report | Income Report | Hayle Olson |

Happy New Year! The end of 2016 ended much better than I had expected! I knew that both my income and traffic would be down the month of December, but surprises on both ends allowed me to beat my expectations! I am so thankful for all that I’ve achieved over this past year. I cannot wait to see what 2017 holds for me and my blog. Here is the final report of the year… the December 2016 Income & Traffic Report!


December Income:

Social Fabric – $40.00
SheKnows Media – $59.81
Etsy: Designs by Hayle – $70.06
Total: $169.87

December Expenses:

Patreon – $3.00
Boardbooster – $5.00
Studio Lights – $72.00
Giveaway Items – $10.00
Total: $90.00

Total Profit: $79.87


I knew that December wasn’t going to be my best month for income. Over the past few months I haven’t been posting as often and therefore I haven’t been writing very many sponsored posts. I was happy to see a few orders come through on my Etsy shop though!



I’m so happy to say that I ended the year on a good note! Views shot up a few days after Christmas and I was able to surpass my goal of 20,000 pageviews for the month.
