When I got back into blogging over the summer of 2019, I knew I needed to set some goals, so I wrote three down and worked hard on them.
I had 3 blog goals accomplished by December and I was so excited. It was really happening.
Now that I have accomplished them, I see great things coming in 2020.
Here is what I did.
1. Blog Goals Accomplished – Making Money
This is not my first time blogging, I use to blog for years up until 2016.
When I blogged before, I thought I had it all figured out. I knew I wanted to make money but it just wasn’t coming in. I got discouraged.
I stopped blogging at the end of 2016 and went on another adventure, in which I am still doing.
Missing my blogging days, I decided to start it up again, this one. But this time I wanted to make it worth my time by actually making money.
And I have started making money!
All the researching I had one over the last year has started to pay off. If you are a blogger and not making money or want to start a blog to make money, don’t stop, it will happen.
The next two goals below are ways to make money on your blog but they are blog goal accomplishments that I have been working forever on to get into.
First goal, DONE!
2. Blog Goals Accomplished – Mediavine Approval
Just hearing about Mediavine this year (2019) and how many bloggers are making great money with it, I knew I wanted in.
I’m not going to go into what Mediavine is but if you would like to know, you can read more about them here.
But, your blog at to have at least 25000 monthly sessions (according to google analytics) and I was no where near it since I was a new blog.
So, I kept using Google Adsense until I got my sessions up to where they needed to be. I never made any real money with adsense until I started this blog, so it’s a great place to start.
I applied to Mediavine more than once because the first two times, I didn’t meet full requirements or my blog wasn’t where it should have been in other areas.
It wasn’t until the third time, I got the approval letter via email. I couldn’t believe it, I was finally in.
Second goal, DONE!
3. Blog Goals Accomplished – Shopstyle Collective Approval
Being apart of Shopstyle Collecting when blogging in the past, I had no idea how to use it, so I never really make any money with it back then.
Shopstyle provides a way to monetize links on your blog and social media accounts. They allow bloggers and other influencers to create links and widgets of the products they love and share them with their followers
I had a harder time getting a approved this time around because my blog didn’t meet requirements. Being that I was a little confused on what I needed to do.
I realized I had to implement something on blog to get approved (or at least that is what I think). So I went ahead and added the shopstyle widgets to my blog and applied again.
This time, the approval was almost instant.

Third goal, DONE!
BONUS GOAL that I just recently accomplished.
I finally switched my hosting over to a faster server with less down time. It was something
I never thought about doing with the past blogs, seems to have always been with a company that I had issues with.
If you are serious about blogging and making money, I highly recommend Siteground, they have great customer service and tools.
BONUS GOAL, DONE!
