Red Blue UPDATE – Red Blue Challenge and Little White Lies

Today, I’m giving everyone a bit of an update and letting everyone know about a few changes coming to heyyouredblue.com!
Over the weekend, I had some time to sit back and think about just where I want Red Blue to go and where it’s currently heading.
Here are a few of the decisions I’m making this month!
Red Blue Health and Fitness Challenge

So I’ve been doing a bit of thinking and decided that the Red Blue Challenge doesn’t really “Fit” well with what Hey You Red Blue is all about!

Parenting

So for the time being, The Red Blue Challenge won’t be a key focus of the site.

Don’t worry about me though, I’ll be continuing the challenge with the same goal.

And I’ll also be keeping everyone updated from time to time, but from now on, The “Challenge” just won’t be as prominent on our site!

Little White Lies

For the time being, I’m also considering cancelling the new blog series Little White Lies.  Although, I’ve gotten quite a lot of positive feedback on the series itself, I’ve gotten pretty much zero submissions.

I’ll continue taking in submissions if they come, but if I don’t receive enough to complete this months Significant Others Edition, then I may have to put the series on hold until Hey You Red Blue gains a larger following.

We’ll see what happens I guess.

Advertisements…

A few weeks ago, I added a few small Google AdSense Banners around the site to test out the “Profitability” of putting ads up and determined that Hey You Red Blue is no where near big enough to make any noticeable profit from affiliate programs like Google AdSense.

Over the course of the month using the program, the site racked up a grand total of $0.10!  Impressive right?

The other Affiliate programs I’ve tried have shown the same success rates as well.

Without having a thousand visitors a day, these types of programs just don’t seam to work!

I’ll continue testing every once in a while though.

So what does that mean?

Hey You Red Blue will be returning to it’s Original “Game Plan” and focus on Parenting Advice and Stories.

Future Blog Series will also focus on this as well.

I’d also like to reach out to other “Parent” bloggers for future guest blogger posts as well.

As for “Profitability”, I want to stay transparent with my readers!  While I’m not 100% focused on making money with this site, I would still like to find some way, if at all possible, to make money.  I’m still a parent and have mouths to feed and all that.

I’ve been reaching out to various business’s which fit in with the “Core” of the site in attempts to find Sponsorship.  Hopefully something will pan out soon on that front.

A Donation button in the Sidebar/Footer of the site has also been added.  Nothing too distracting I hope!

What can I do to help you might ask?

It’s Simple!  Just keep visiting and reading all the great articles as I post them!

I’m also 100% open to suggestions to improve the site. So feel free to either post one in the comments below or send me a direct email via comments@heyyouredblue.com if you have any!

    It’s hard to decide exactly what to focus on, isn’t it? I have found over the last few months that linkups help in increasing site traffic, and I’m trying to improve the SEO as well. Like you said though, not until the traffic goes up significantly, will I sign for Google AdSense. Good luck with your new direction!

      I’ve been doing a lot of linkups lately. SEO is still a mystery to me though! I’ve been doing everything I can that I’ve seen online, but I’m still not seeing anything at all in the SEO console.
