Happy February, everyone! It’s a new month which means it’s time to publish my income report! I’ve been doing these for over a year now in order to show bloggers that monetization is possible, to hold myself accountable, and to track my progress. I’m keeping this income report a little shorter than usual, because if I’m being honest – there wasn’t much strategy behind it. In the coming months I’ll be moving away from sponsored posts and ads, and I spent all of January setting up the ground work to do so. Before taking out expenses, I made over $2000 in January… View Post

Happy New Year, everyone! This income report marks my first full year tracking my blog’s income, and I am still in a bit of disbelief over my being able to turn this into a full time job for myself! If you’ve been around for a while you know why I do these posts every month, but in case you’re new, let me explain: To monitor my growth. I take blogging seriously, and it’s something I hope to do for the rest of my life. It’s exciting and inspiring to be able to track my numbers and see what does and… View Post

Happy December, Everyone! It’s a new month which means I am due to put up my income report! You all know why I do these by now so I’ll save you the spiel and jump into things. November was a strange month to say the least. I was under more stress than I’m used to dealing with, and some of my passion (temporarily!) fizzled out. That’s not something I like admitting, but I’m all about being open here. I turned down a few opportunities that I’m regretting, and I generally just didn’t use my energy towards being productive. At the end… View Post

I’ve been looking forward to November for quite some time now: November brings new adventures (I’m travelling twice!), a much needed break from school come Thanksgiving, and another income report! You all know the spiel by now: I’m not doing this to brag,  I write these to teach and inspire. I make money blogging, and you can, too. You don’t need a crazy amount of traffic, a crazy amount of time, or a crazy amount insider secrets to make money blogging and I’m proof of that. My traffic has been going down (yikes!) yet my income (before expenses) is continuing… View Post

So I’m a bit later than usual with my income report this month –  sorry about that! But I’ve finally crunched the numbers and analyzed my analytics and despite lack of growth on both ends, I’m actually pretty excited about this report. I’m going a little more in depth and telling all when it comes to what I charge (something many bloggers keep very hush hush!) But before we get into that, I always like to add a little disclaimer about why I write these. People who I know in real life and are outside of the blogging world are always… View Post
