Site Net Worth - May 2021
By now you all know why I started The Saving Dude and what we are trying to accomplish. Our monthly net worth reports are how we track progress and growth over time.
May 2021 was another month of positive momentum. From a financial perspective, we didn't make progress.
We made some progress on a few fronts. We are pushing more social content, the challenge there is ensuring we provide engaging and meaningful content. If you don't connect with your audience, then there is no reason to post.
I'm excited about the progress we continue to make with Google and showing up in search results. This is the best way to gain free traffic. The next step will be converting that traffic into repeat traffic, subscribers, and ultimately a revenue stream.

Not really a revenue driving force, ha!
Total Hours Spent: 8 hours
Really scaling back on efforts the last few months. I'll pick things up again this summer as more vacation time will allow me to research and prepare articles.
Articles Written: 3 in May vs 4 in April
$0.08 - Google Adsense
$0.00 - Affiliate Income
$0.00 - Other (adding this because I like to think positively)
Alexa Site Ranking: 1,603,559 - Writing articles that are found on Google is driving this month over month increase.
Here is a quick list of what we are worked on in April with updates:
Continue sending weekly emails - this really fell off in late April
Mix up our content types - pretty solid performance there
Here is a quick list of what we plan to work on in May:
Create a better cadence for social posting (and potentially add more to our stories) - we have seen growing engagement with our social posts
Mix up our content types - not really enough content to say there was a "mix"
Get the site Alexa score down below 500k - trending well for 1/3 of the way through the year
Have one month where I write over 15 articles - still not there yet
Make more than $50/month from affiliate partners - trending backwards
Now go out, set up your own blog, and try to turn it into a side hustle just like me!
