One Year Report! $5500, 189 blog posts, 7922 comments, 20k Alexa

It’s one year today since this blog went live. The domain name was registered on October 28th 2013. This coincidentally is a day after my birth day, which is 27th of October.

This is one year of blogging on I have been blogging however for 2 years. I started blogging on in August 2012. Here is my 2 year anniversary post.

My one year journey with has been an exciting one. The growth has been crazy and I have met with more and more awesome bloggers.

My community has been exceptional. My readers (including you) have been the most important asset I have ever had. These stats I’m about to share  here with you are as a result of these wonderful readers.

The first article I published on this blog was on the 29th October 2013. I wrote about Google’s hummingbird update. Click here to read the article. Since this first post went live, I have written many more both for my blog and clients. I won’t mention about clients’ here though.

I’m publishing this post to show appreciation to my readers and friends who have greatly influenced me in one or many ways. You have read, commented, shared, tweeted or linked to my blog from an awesome content. That action you did has hugely contributed to where this blog is today.

Some stats after 1 Year!

one year


In one year, I have published 189 blog posts (an average of 15,75 posts per month) and you my readers have made thousands of comments. Including my replies, there are up to 7922 comments (an average of 660 comments per month). This is of course, clear proof that this blog has been very active during the past 12 months.

Alexa Stats

Though the importance of this traffic and engagement  measuring tool is still highly disputed, it has proven to me its worth.  We cannot completely dismiss Alexa stats if we want to be recognized online.

A good number of advertisers and clients will still consider your Alexa ranking as a pointer to how popular your blog is. I have published a couple of paid posts on this blog thanks to the convincing Alexa stats.

20k after 12 months is impressive. With no blackhat method, I’m so excited to see my stats dropping and dropping. In the next 12 months, my blog should be within the first 10000 sites wordwide.

alexa stats

Income report

In this report, I won’t be able to give you details. However, I made good earnings from paid product reviews and affiliate programs. Writing reviews of interesting products and linking to them through your affiliate links is a powerful way to generate consistent sales from your blog.

So many of these review posts I wrote in the past keep generating affiliate commissions. If you do affiliate product reviews that keeps getting traffic from search engines, you keep making money from them.

Often, we forget this long term consistent benefit and rush after instant payment from product owners.  It’s stupid to accept $50 to review a product with an affiliate program except the product owner allows you to sign up and use your affiliate link.

Here below is exported report from Paypal. I have removed other earnings that are not linked to this blog. Note that ClickBank payments are not included in this report. Clickbank pays directly to my Payoneer Account.

income reportA few months after the blog went live, I accepted paid post from clients for a fee as low as $20. They did their content and submitted. I had a couple of these kind of contents but as my traffic and engagement grew, I began shifting away from low payments.

  17. Hello Enstine.

    Congratulations on an amazing 1st year. Many people won’t see a dime coming from their blog, but it’s apparent that you started out with a direction, and although you may have made small adjustments to that direction, you have always had a clear view of what you wanted to give through your blog.

    Some of the stats are amazing – extremely impressive is your comment count – proving that your content is worthy of discussion.

      It will be great to read your experience too 😉

      However, I have shared quite some information on how to generate income from your blog. There is alot too online on that. Just do some search and apply those steps. You should be up for some earnings too 😉

  22. Hey Enstine,

    I think that’s very impressive for a blog that’s only one year old. To also have that low of an Alexa rank too, nice.

    I know you post often though and are really teaching some great things that are driving that traffic here and people are just dying to learn from you. I say way to go and keep it up.

    Your earnings are impressive as well, great job. I’m sure you’re very happy with where your blog is as you should be. I can only imagine what the next year will bring too.

    Thanks for the credits too, very nice of you to dish those out.

    Happy blogging and here’s to another glorious year.

      Better days are ahead my dear friend 😉

    – Tharun

  29. Congrat bro! This is not to flatter you ……I tell you, you’ve done more than what many bloggers do achieve in two years combined.

    If you could achieve all these amazing stats in just a year, then the sky is just the beginning. And thanks bro for always been kind and there for me, am glad to be part of your story.

    Thanks, do have nice party.

    • Hey bro,
      It’s been wonderful since we came together. Your constant support is one of the reasons behind the success of this blog. We still have better days ahead so let’s keep moving 😉

      May you have even a bigger success this year in Jesus’ name!

  30. Hi Enstine

    Congratulations for such impressive statistics though you deserve more than that and will make it in days to come.

    Writing 189 wonderful posts in a year is itself a heck of the task and then driving more than 7000 comments on them collectively is another big achievement.

    Your new product is making wonders in blogosphere and am damn sure the coming days will bring more and more success for you more particularly and for all doing hard work to achieve their goals.

    • Hi Mi,
      You know one of the reasons for these stats in your input. It’s so glaring that I can’t deny it. Thanks for your constant engagement sir. I’m always very grateful for every minute you spend here on my blog reading, commenting, sharing, etc

      We have better things ahead. Success is our portion

  31. Congrats bro.

    You deserved this stats and income and more.

    Greater accomplishment for the second year.

    Happy Birthday too

  32. Congratulations to you Enstine on this achievement. Your stats are impressive, no doubt that came as a result of your hard work and dedication. I can tell you have invested a lot of time on your blog.

    I have learned a lot from you here and I want to thank you for valuing your readers and followers in such a unique and special way. Keep up the good work. Blessings and many more years in the business.

    • Hey Yvonne,

  35. Hey Enstine,

    Happy Birthday my Friend… 🙂

    You are such an inspiration for all of us… 🙂


  36. Hey Enstine,

    I congratulate you for the successes you have achieved during the past one year in which you started this blog.

    We thank God for your life who has seen you through the past year.

    I have been able to learn a lot from your blog and the wonderful assistants you are rendering to other bloggers who are starting out.

    I just redeemed the coupon given in the article. Thanks brother.

    I really love the way your blog has grown till now but there is one thing i would like to point you to and that is as regard your email list.

    I do see a subscription box on the right hand side of the blog, apart from the RSS subscription beneath every post.

    I have never received a follow up email from you except your latest updates from RSS.

    I want you to work on your email list for this blog, as this can be a very good source of traffic for the blog apart from the RSS, since not everyone would subscribe for RSS feed.

    This is just my one cents.

    Overall, you have been able to achieve great success within a very short time. This is very inspiring.

    Take care and have a nice day ahead.

    -Oloyede Jamiu

    • Hey bro,

  39. Hi Enstine,

    Excellent and fireproof report that there is money to be made from blogging. My very good friend, reginaldchan shared his report about four months back and his earnings are amazing.

    I’m making money also on a much more considerable level; one thing I discovered is that we all started around the same time; my blog clocked 1 year on Oct 3rd this year, yours ( today) and reginaldchan was June this year.

    Blogging is rewarding, challenging and time consuming but worth it if you have the passion of not giving up.


    • James, it’s amazing because I was on your a few minutes ago and was wondering where you have been. I ran a search in Google and found your blog post on spot one. You are doing great in SEO bro.

      I’m glad to hear that you are doing well too in making cash online. I’d like to read your report too. I however didn’t read Reginald’s. Can you share the url to his report?

  40. Hey Enstine,
    Congratulations for your 365 days with such a nice blog. You have helped a lot of bloggers including me.
    Your earnings report inspires me to continue in the world of blogging.

    Also wishing Be lated Happy Birthday to you.

    You’ve really impacted my life too with your wonderful blogging style that always bring the desired results
    You blogging style is unparallelled and you always thinks out of the box to get the result

    This is really motivating reading such annual report from a proactive blogger like you. It’s indeed another blogging tactic to fuel up the zeal to blog in other bloggers following you. Blogging is all about what works and in most cases practical examples.

    Your one year report no doubt shows you have been on top of your game. in one year has turned into a global brand. I see most of your traffic coming the US which is a healthy sign you have been on top of your engagement.

    The earning aspect is also awesome 🙂
