Success is steady progress toward one’s personal goals –
Starting with a good quote, let me quickly go to the updates that I have. And later, we will see the blogging income report for May 2018.

Back with the schedule:
Over the past 6 months, I have been struggling to maintain my blogging schedule. I had a time, where I posted just 1 article a month.
There were so many reasons why I was not able to post regularly, but the major reason was my academics. I found it too difficult to concentrate in both.
But, I have found my rhythm back. This time, it’s even better.
Maybe this was due to this summer vacation, I found enough time to write blog posts. But, I am very sure, I will keep up my blogging schedule this time, even after the summer vacation ends.
One of my best Blog Posts ever:
As, you know, I am writing regularly nowadays, it gave me the motivation to write one of the best articles ever in my Blogging Career.
Why do I feel this as my best?
It’s all about the journey I came across in these last 3 years. It’s all about understanding what I did in the past and what I am supposed to do in the future.

Exclusive Talk by Sir Tim Berners Lee:
Also, I should consider myself lucky. Because I got this opportunity to listen to one of the greatest minds on the Internet. He is Sir Tim Berners Lee.
He is the one who developed this World Wide Web (WWW), without which we could have never imagined about Google.
When I say, no Google, it means there is no Google Adsense and no Affiliate Marketing. There wouldn’t have been opportunities for writers to come online and share their valuable content.
Do read these key takeaways as a Blogger from this Exclusive Talk.

Removed Google Auto Ads:
In my last income report, I mentioned using Google Auto ads. But, then I decided to stop using it. Because I was little annoyed with too many ads. Though it generates a small revenue out of my website, it shouldn’t be disturbing user experience.
And, so I removed Auto ads and now I have only 2 ads on my website.
I hope now, the reader experience is a lot better. I guess Adsense team should have a look at their Auto ads to place the minimum number of ads with higher CPC.
And let’s move on to see my traffic.
Here is my audience overview for May 2018
This is how my usual audience overview looks like. Unlike my previous income report, where I got suspicious traffic.
But, then there is a big shock to me.
Why is the bounce rate so high?
No idea as of now.
I should check my traffic source to identify this.
This traffic source shows a lot of referral traffic for this Cenmax Giveaway. I guess the high bounce rate is also due to this Giveaway. People visit randomly from other websites to check what is the Giveaway going on here.
Let’s move on to the next section.
