Hello, fellow squirrels!
January was not the start of 2022 we wanted. That’s how life goes sometimes. We had some major life events in January that had to take precedence over everything in life. Again, that’s okay. Although Wallet Squirrel means the world to Andrew and me, our family always comes first.
I see this a lot in our society. People forget what really matters in life. Frankly, I can’t blame them. It’s very easy to get priorities mixed up. I do this all the time with my phone by spending too much time mindlessly scrolling through Instagram.
Let’s take a look at what we have achieved and what we plan to do in February.
What we accomplished in January!
The biggest item of the month is our comment sections are back for every post! We took a break from comments, but we missed the community involvement in our posts. One of our goals in 2022 is to bring back that sense of community.
We missed hearing for all of you! Shoot us a “Hello!” in the comments below!
We have published several more articles. We share tons of cool financial jokes, infographics and quotes on social media. Check out our Instagram!
For January, our monthly income fell $385.66 to $196.50. That’s how it goes when you’re an entrepreneur. Some months are more prosperous than others. This does cause an emotional rollercoaster that it took me a long time to understand.
One day you’ll be on cloud nine because this awesome thing you made had a great month. Then the next month comes like a dark cloud casting a shadow over your joy. If you’ve ever felt this, don’t worry, it’s normal. A few months pass. It’s how you deal with those bad months that will determine whether you get back on track or not. So keep your head up. Stay positive. Use these bad months as motivation. If you can, I can almost guarantee you’ll bounce back even stronger.
These are all pretty incredible revenue generators and we’ve mentioned them before on the blog.
Monthly Expenses for Wallet Squirrel
The phrase “It takes money to make money” is actually quite accurate. As we learn new skills, we find new software and processes that help us make more money. However, they come at a price for their convenience. This is where our money went in July.
Monthly Fee – $215 Total
bluehost [$36] – Hosting service Ahrefs [$104] – Keyword and web traffic research Sitelock [$8] – Extra security for our Bluehost servers Domain [$2] – So we can keep the domain WalletSquirrel.com Bloom [$7] – Our email forms, but we will probably get rid of this soon Grammarly [$12] – We can’t live without this great grammar tool The Noun Project [$4] – The best site for icons for our infographics Sendible [$30] – A social media scheduling platform. Adam seems to really enjoy it! Canvas [$12] – Helps us create cool images!
Everything that remains is invested in my dividend portfolio.
What’s next for February
Adam and Andrew met in early February to discuss our goals for 2022. We feel we need to get back to our blogging foundations and continue building our community. Over the next month, we plan to create a lot of new content for Wallet Squirrel and our affiliate website.
We also have some cleaning to do to get back to basics. These basics will make us more efficient and should increase our monthly views in the coming months.
Adam continues to work on his final piece for his Metaverse series. This article is taking a lot longer than he expected, but this is something not to rush.
