June is here, amigos! It is that time where all nosy folks out there look forward. You know what I’m talking about first week of the month we hop around from blog to blog to read those motivating blog income reports. So there you have it, May income report & June goals post.
May Personal Goals
On this department I have to said I failed terribly. We had some major events since March that really damped my moods but thanks to the support of family and friends we are getting through.
This affected our personal goals for the month but over all we managed to save money and make more money so all wasn’t that bad in May.
Get back to walking every evening. – HA! That didn’t happen the way I wanted.
Date night – This DID NOT happen this month.
Start planning our family outings for the summer – We talked we just haven’t decided since we are not sure what the outcome of our summer will be. My son goes to Pre-K and is getting therapy that will last the entire summer until August. My daughter, I have no clue what she plans on doing. She wants to get a job, then camp? Who knows. This week we will find out how our summer will be like.
Go over our budget – Our summer budget it really rocking and what I love is that we have about $550 saved and our goals was $500.
May Blog Goals
Not going to look at GA – This was hard but I managed to quit my Google Analytics obsession for them month. I had other major things to work on and a special project that I am working on.
Find a great online course to improve my blogging techniques – Funny thing that I just bought Crystal Paine Make Over Your Mornings on June 1st. Though I took time during the month of May to work on EBA material and updates. Did I mention how much I love this e-course?
Focus on growing my Facebook – Facebook is amazing and though many bloggers focus on Pinterest because well, it drives traffic, I love to experiment and see other options. Facebook drives traffic and if you invest on ad it will work. What happens if Pinterest decides to change things again and your traffic tanks? This is something every blogger should think about. Now if anyone has Twitter figure out please shoot me an email.
Facebook groups – I think I have it down to a managing number. Facebook grousp are amazing if you are a blogger. They can also suck your time.

With higher payment came higher expenses. Below you will find my expenses that were paid for the month of May.

- Facebook Advertisement – $27.77 – Now this ads includes the month of April and worth the return of investments as you can see.
- Pinterest Ad – $7.15 – This was for the month of April. I didn’t run any ads during the month of May because quite honestly, they aren’t worth it for my budget. Meaning, I’m sure they will work if I had a higher advertisement budget.

Things are getting better in our home and I hope this continues. I have been able to continue to work on my site and I am very grateful that you all take the time to visit My Stay At Home Adventures. Here are June’s personal goals:
DATE NIGHT – I am telling you I don’t recall the last time my husband and I spent time together. THIS WILL HAPPEN.
Start walking the trails once a week – This is something that we love to do as a family.
Set our summer schedule and routines – This is something I will write about I think with the purchase of Make Over Your Morning will sure help me.
June Blog Goals
This month I have set our to do a lot of work behind the scene. I will continue to work on social media. I will continue to work on EBA (I am taking the course over again).
Submit posts for The Happy Home Life – This is one of my latest projects I am working with other bloggers. This is one of my “highest” investments for the year so far and I am praying that will pay off during this year.
Work on BTS projects – Need to get started with some BTS (back to school) projects for July including a giveaway.
Start working on my e-book – I never thought I would be saying this; Me writing an eBook. The most insecure person when it comes to writing.
