How I Doubled My Pageviews In 1 Month

15th February 2017

2016 was an amazing year for FITnancials and going full-time on my blog drastically changed my pageviews. I went full-time in November, and as you can see in 2 months, I’ve doubled my pageviews exceeding over 60,000.

I’ve been blogging for awhile, but never took it seriously until November of 2016. Blogging was a hobby of mine and I usually only spent a couple hours a week on my blog. I quit my full-time job and decided to go full-time on FITnancials, and I’ve never been happier.

As a blogger, the learning never stops. Social media is constantly changing and it’s one of the more frustrating jobs I’ve had, but it’s a job I would never give up. I am my own boss at 23, get to travel and see my family whenever I want. I’ve been to 5 continents and counting and have been able to work anywhere in the world. The amount of money I make is constantly increasing and I don’t have to wait for that 1x per year to get my raise.

At the very bottom, I’ve included actual proof of my pageviews from Google Analytics.

Find out how I went from 12,000 page views to 30,000 thousand page views, and now at 60,000 page views per month! Continue reading

So let’s get started with a secret that many of you might not know, starting with #1 below. 

Traveling on a budget is very doable, but there are other secrets and hacks when it comes to traveling cheaply. Find out here how you can see the world on a budget. Continue reading
