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.
March 2019 Blogging Income
Last month I said February would probably be my lowest month income-wise. Well….in March I only beat February by one dollar! (Haha…so maybe I am right?)
In March I earned $3,013.64
(As a reminder this is the money I actually received in February.)
It broke down like this:
- Ad Networks – $1,006.94
- Affiliate Income – $1,406.70
- Sponsored Posts – $600
Nothing too exciting happened in March. I did a couple of sponsored posts. (I don’t accept many sponsored posts as I only work with companies that truly are a good fit.) Other than that traffic and income all stayed about the same.
Blogging Goals Check Up
I set some blogging goals that I want to accomplish this quarter. I’m scheduled to have these tasks finished by June. Here’s the current progress:
Get 2 Months Ahead on Content – Currently one month ahead.
Create 2 New Email Opt-ins – Haven’t started yet.
Create a Money Product – Haven’t started yet.
Resources for New Bloggers
First of all if you’re always saying that you want to start a blog but haven’t done it yet-why not? Starting a blog is not as a hard as you think or very expensive. (I have a discount affiliate link that will get you hosting for $3-$5 per MONTH depending on the plan you choose.)
Blogging is something that can open up many doors but at the same time takes a lot of learning and hard work to build up.
