So What! Wednesday - Ca$hing Out

Posted By: Leah
So What!  Today I am coming clean about cashing out in the blog world. 
(Note: I'm for sure not a big blog, but I do okay for a blog of my size.
 These ideas and tips are all my own, but I want to share with you!)

So What! my blog hit 100,000 page views yesterday. Many bloggers care about their amount of followers, but when it comes to stats and numbers, I look at the number of page views. I care because I get paid per page view. I know, I know, I come across as this 'I only blog for myself' kinda gal, and I am! But lets be serious for a second, there's $$$ to be made. I do really well with Google Ad Sense (you know, those lame ads under each post), I have made the most via sponsored posts from Clever Girls Collective. I'm in with a couple other brands and companies. But So What! You being here right now's putting a little $ in my pocket and I appreciate it! So go get signed up with Ad Sense and start earning $$ on your blog if you aren't already.

So What! I canceled my Birch Box. You probably felt it coming after this post. I just became un-excited about the past few packages I got from them. BUT...  I had racked up reward points and got $30 to spend on the Birch Box site... YES!

So What! I get Influenster Vox Box for free! WELL... So technically so far I only got one box, and it was the Natural's box... but I kind of like the free-ness of it. The actual content is... eehhh.... well it's free :)
So What! I have learned about sooo much awesomess via other blogs. From free Starbucks Day to $15 Modcloth surprise shipments, I have heard about great deals and steals just by checking my blog feed. And giveaways! oh wow... from Shabby Apple to SwimSpot and a bunch of cute etsy shops too. I feel sooo lucky about the amount of great things I've learned about because of blogs!

So What! I have gotten lucky in friendships via my blog as well. I have met the coolest from all around the world. Girls I would have never met otherwise. Annnnddddd, as a Hello Kitty Girl, there are other HK fans I've come across in my day-to-day, but online they seem to be everywhere in the blog world! It's awesome!

So What! I have grown my Etsy Shop sooo much too. I am so excited I've been able to share in my random and various ShopLeah craft endeavors. I started with flowers a few years back, then earrings, and now I'm on the hair ties. Who knows what will be next!?!

How has your blog helped you be successful?
