This will be my 4th month fully blogging. I have to say this new approach to my business has done so much for me! I want to share my income reports with you all for a few reasons. I decided to start my blog after being influenced by others, there income reports always shocked me, the idea that I could make money from a hobby I loved doing was amazing. I’m hoping I can do the same for you guy’s! I also love the idea of taking note on all the income, expenses, traffic, etc. That goes along with my blog. It will be so interesting to see the changes that happen for me this year.
What I’ve learned this month -
Pinterest can do SO MUCH more for my traffic than I realized. I discovered Tailwind towards the end of this month and can’t believe what it’s done for my traffic in just a few weeks. Novembers Income & Traffic report will prove this.
What I will be changing this month -
This month I applied to Adthrive, this ad company is known for paying more but can also be pretty exclusive. Let’s hope I get approved! Mediavine has been amazing but i’m ready to see if I can up my ad revenue these next few months.
What I hope to see in the future -
I’m hoping to learn more about brand deals and sponsored posts. I’m a total newbie when it comes to the idea.

I do have to pay taxes on what I make but I have to make note; my job is SO EASY. I am a stay at home mom and am still able to provide for my family in a way that also makes me so happy.

I use a few different sources to increase my blog traffic below, I will go into more detail as to how much traffic each source brings my blog. T
So recently, I decided I would share what I’ve learned these past few months while blogging. It’s been a huge mountain for me to climb, in many ways I wasn’t aware of. With multiple bumps in the road.
The Cam Drawstring Bag was inspired by my own drawstring bags hanging in my closet, each one used and abused to the very end of their existence.
So, It’s Spring! Which means I’ll be spending my days frolicking through the flowers in a crochet bikini top and flower crown.
This week has been REAL crazy. So what does a crazy week call for? A quick and easy project that allows for some instant gratification. The Polo fanny pack is just that!
During the crazy busy holiday season, sometimes we need make a project that works up in under 30 minutes, and uses a simple stitch repeat. Well, I’ve got you all covered!
The Breah beanie was inspired by my love for quick, easy and simple projects. As we’re getting closer to the Holiday season I find myself needing more gifts for friends and family. I obviously don’t have enough time to make them a big blanket or sweater, so I always end up resorting to a beanie. The Breah Beanie is the perfect addition to your quick gift projects!
So, I have a pretty cool pattern for you all today. If I do say so myself, this has to be one of my favorite headbands i’ve made to date!
Shawls and scarves have recently made their way into my heart. These accessories were once something I despised making and wearing, but as I’ve grown as a designer (and moved to a colder climate) I find that I just can’t get enough of them!
Long ago, back when Hooked On Tilly was just patterns on Etsy and had horrible (Yes, that bad) photography, I designed a beanie pattern. I was so happy with the result and couldn’t wait to share it with my small following at the time. I quickly took pictures on my white fur rug (we were all doing that back then, right?) posted the pattern to Etsy and…nothing.
Today I have the Plume Shawl crochet pattern to share with you all. This design is worked easily, using only a few simple crochet stitches. You wouldn’t guess this pattern would be so simple with how gorgeous the end result turns out!
