If you’re new here I started posting income reports when I started this blog, almost seven years ago. I initially had goals of making a few hundred dollars per month and then slowly growing that amount. Luckily, that’s what I’ve been able to do.
In 2012 I decided that earning money online was going to be the only way I could create the life I wanted living in a small town with no good job options. I dove in head first and started trying things out. I’ve failed at sooo many different things and have had great successes with others.
I’ve earned money through being a freelance writer, virtual assistant, and blogger. (And yes, I know how crazy that sounds to most people!) Right now my income is coming solely from blogging.
I took a year off from doing income reports after the birth of my last daughter and now they’re back.
January 2019 Income Report
Last year I worked a lot less than I ever have in my adult life. And because of that my income was somewhat affected. (You can see my 2018 income report here.)
In the past few months I’ve gotten a babysitter and got back to work 😊 And income-wise, January wasn’t too bad of a month.
In January I earned a total of $5,472.71.
It broke down like this:
- Ad Networks – $1,031.81
- Affiliate Income – $3,815.90
- Sponsored Posts – $625
Considering my income has gone way up and down over the past year I consider this to be a pretty good month. February wasn’t quite as good to me but I’ll share more of that in a couple weeks.
My income goal for the year is to reach $100k.
I have a ton of ideas for doings this I just have to make myself focus on one thing at a time so I can get stuff done!

More Blogging Advice
If you’ve been thinking about starting a blog I hope my income reports inspire you at least a little bit. I know it can be super inspiring to read income reports where the blogger is making $20k+ per month but those can also be a bit intimidating.
When I first started blogging my goal was to make $2,500 per month. I’m really happy that I’ve been able to reach where I am working part time, taking care of my kids and without selling a product.
If you want to do the same, you can! It just takes time + hard work.
