Hi there! So I know we are over halfway through July, but better late than never!
Ever think that you could write something on the internet and get paid for it? I sure didn’t!! But this platform has grown and I’m blessed to make a little money doing something I truly love! I don’t write this report to brag, but because I have learned a lot by reading other bloggers income reports; I love those bloggers who are open enough to say here’s how I did it–you can too! Here are some income reports I read regularly: Pinch of Yum, Your Modern Family, Beauty Through Imperfection, and By Regina.
I had 21,200 pageviews in June. My second quarter average pageviews is 21,133.33. 😉 Thanks for reading, sharing and overall being awesome! I want to take a monthly look at my combined social media growth too, so I’ll start tracking that this month.
Sponsored Posts: $305
Social Media only campaigns: $0
Total Revenue: $334.14
2015 Average monthly revenue: $409
As you can see my income was down this month. I noted last month that I was cutting back on my blogging to three days a week which is a good fit for my life now and family priorities (aka raising a baby, having a good marriage, my work at camp & enjoying my life). I am happy to see that my ad revenue went up, if even just a little. Although the majority of my income is from sponsored work, I’d like to grow my income in other more passive areas. In case you are curious I find my sponsored posts through Mode Media (my ad agency), TapInfluence, Fitfluential, Collective Bias and Clever Girls Collective.
You got to spend money to make money, or at least that’s what they tell me.
Hosting and Domain Name: $7.50
Fiverr e-book formatting: $21
Total Expenses: $33.50
Income less Expenses: $300.64

I completed one very big blogging goal at the end of June which was publishing a free gift for my newsletter subscribers, a downloadable cookbook filled with my favorite, everyday nutritious recipes: 7 Quick & Healthy Dinners for Your Family! This is only available to my newsletter subscribers so if you want it enter your email address below and you will get a link to download it in your email inbox. So sign up! Just do it! Do it now!
I’m promoting this bad boy like crazy and I’m so thrilled to have it checked off my to-do list for the year! It’s exciting and seriously, I’d love for you to be a part of my newsletter community. 🙂
I guess that is all to report for this month! Now I’m off to soak in some summer!
