How I Got 50,000 Pageviews in My 1st Month of Blogging
You read that headline right. I got over 50,000 pageviews this month on my brand new blog (this is Month 1)! I’m going to share my blog more in depth, share my stats, talk about what I did to promote, and how I got ttraffic without spending any money on advertising.
About Mama’s Hustle
I created this blog with the vision of sharing work from home opportunities with moms. I know many mama’s that are homemakers and married to a partner who is the sole breadwinner. I thought it’d be great to show moms how they could earn a side hustle or earn a living from home and so I began!
I want to mention, my results are not typical. While this is my first month of blogging on this blog, I am not new to blogging. This experience has helped me gain traffic and build momentum quickly on this blog.
I also wanna note, I’m no super blogger. I’ve never gained 50K or even close to that number in page views, in my first several months of any of my former blogs.
This is all a Journey and I’m delighted to take it with You!

In the first few days of blogging, I was earning around 50-100 views per day, then it went up to 100-300 views a day, then around mid-month, my daily views were averaging around 3,000 per day. I’ll tell you how..keep reading!
My Traffic Strategy
For Traffic I used all free methods. No paid promotion whatsoever.
I used a specific strategy that you can find in this ebook, Traffic Transformation. This guide is 100+ pages of awesomeness, plus video. It’s an easy read and you’ll be so exciting going over the material, that you’ll want to start executing the strategy right away!
The moment I started using the strategy, my views shot up!
Look at my Pinterest monthly views…
Over 500K monthly views! I started at 17K a few weeks ago. It’s grown by leaps and bounds thanks to this little helper.
I am all about using tools to help automate, organize, make money, etc.
This is it how it started..
I knew I wanted to do zero paid promo. With that in mind I focused on social media. I started a social media account for my blog with Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, StumbleUpon, and later, Instagram. This is where I stand now, just 30 days later:
Pinterest: 465 followers
Facebook: 425 likes
Twitter: 1,287 followers
You can see my numbers are not sky high. Pinterest has under 500 followers and my monthly views are over 500K!
