Pinch of Yum's Traffic and Income Reports

In the summer of 2011 we started an experiment called "The Food Blog Money Making Experiment." The goal of the experiment was to find out if it was possible to create an income from a food blog.

 

Our first report was published in September of 2011. In that post we made a commitment to share what we were learning through ongoing monthly income reports. The links below are those reports from September 2011 to present. We hope you find them helpful!
