Hi everyone! I have my blog in DIY and home decor niche for a couple of years now. 17 articles 150 visits a day (about 40% google, 50% pinterest and the rest from FB groups or other blogs) Plus: IG with 4000 followers Pinterest with 1.5m monthly view YouTube with some unprofessional time lapse videos. I'm looking for the most passive way to get income. Being an influencer is not my thing. I started adding some affiliate links from Aliexpress as I launched the blog, up until today I've earned less then $100. I've decided to apply to Google adsense last week but didn't get approval yet (is it normal?) Reading this blog I realize I must write at least 50 more articles. Correct? I would appreciate any kind of advice. Also, how can I easily grow my Instagram followers? I'm aiming for real followers so I prefer not buying them. I do all "by the book" posting, adding hashtags, uplouad stories, engage with other instagrammers but it feels like I only get less and less likes. Have a great weekend!
