Since it’s the beginning of a new month, it’s time for another blogging report for BecauseImCheap.com I like to do these reports every month to help me gauge growth and kick my butt in gear where I need to. Plus, I want to be transparent in my blogging. It’s my hobby, it’s work, and it’s NOT a get rich scheme. Hopefully this post portrays that clearly. January has been… a dry month.

I’ve read that January is usually a slump month. I know I felt it personally, and maybe that’s reflected in my numbers. As the growth wasn’t as substantial in prior months. Or maybe a lot of people resolved not read blogs in 2016. Maybe… But there is growth, however slight. So I refuse to let disappointments get me down. It’s a new month. Time to set some new goals and get myself in gear.
