May 2014 Blog Income + Traffic Report

Save For Later

I am just getting back into the blogging swing. During college I was unable to blog full time (or even sometimes at all!). Now that I’m on the job hunt, I’m able to devote more time to writing and photography.

I’ve been thinking A LOT about what I want to do for the rest of my life. My degree is in Criminal Justice, and behind the scenes jobs (aka no guns or dirt) are harder than I thought to come by.

I’m considering going into something like marketing or social media instead.

Want to hear a secret? Did you know some people blog for a living? Pinch of Yum’s income reports give me hope that that could someday be me. Please tell I’m crazy and not to get my hopes up ๐Ÿ˜‰
