So I put together my blog income report for September 2016 and it looks like I made $1,750! Not too shabby. I love the fact that blogging allows me to make my own schedule and work when I want to. A lot of this was passive income and I have even seen an increase in my pageviews this past month.

Why am I sharing my income with you? Because I want you to see how you can make a living doing something that you have a passion about. I love what I do. I love that I am able to stay home with my daughter and do fun things with her during the day and work at night.
I have learned a lot since I started blogging and I want to be able to share that knowledge with you if this is something that you are interested in. Learn from my mistakes!
You do not have to be tech savvy to be a blogger, I certainly am not. You can even start a blog for only $3.95 a month.
One of the ways I learned how to really make income from my blog was by taking the Elite Blog Academy course. I can’t recommend it enough. They will be open again for registration in February 2017 for EBA 3.0 so you can start saving up if you are interested in the course.
Ruth Soukup, the creator of EBA, actually has some free training videos that she is offering from EBA 2.0. You can sign up for that free training to get some great tips.
Here is how my income breaks down:
- Sponsored Posts: $875
- The Selling Family: $298
- Amazon: $26
- Ebates: $60
- BlogHer Tweets: $75
- ThredUp: $20 credit
- Blog Traffic ebook: $40
- Strategies Worth Sharing ebook: $12
- Skillshare: $50
- Siteground: $50
- Media.net: $179.25
- Other Affiliates: $56.18
I am waiting on a few other affiliate reports but that should bring my total to at least $1,750. My traffic increased a little from last month. I had 117,000 pageviews. Most of that is coming from Pinterest thanks to my use of Boardbooster.
What I’m Planning for Next Month
I actually switched my ads from Media.net over to AdThrive this past week. My traffic has been holding steady at over 100,000 pageviews/month so they accepted my application and things are going really well so far.
I have only had the ads on my site for a week and I have made almost as much as I did last month with Media.net….after only one week! I’m excited to see what the final number will be and I’ll keep you updated with next month’s income report.
I am also really excited about the launch of the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit! I love taking courses and reading ebooks about how to make my blog bigger and better. I don’t like spending a lot of money on those things unless I really know that it is worth it and boy, is the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit worth it!
They have over 62 ebooks, courses, and printables from some of the biggest bloggers. It is valued at over $3,600 and it will be on sale for $97! Plus, there will be over 17 bonuses, tools for your blog, that are worth over another $1,300!
There are some courses that I have been wanting to take but haven’t got around to purchasing that are included in the bundle! These courses are over $300 each! I’m so giddy, I can’t wait until it is released.
It will be on sale from Oct. 26th-Nov. 1st 2016. Go ahead and sign up so that you will be notified once it goes on sale. You don’t want to miss out on this…..give yourself an early Christmas present!
I am going to be putting everything I learn in the bundle to good use next month. I will try and put a review of the bundle together so that you can see everything that is included and how I plan on using it to increase my earnings next month.
