Do you remember my blog income report from December? I earned little over 100 dollars and I was over the moon because of that.
Well, I continued to work hard this year and last month income report shows that.
Money is not why I am doing this. I have been blogging more than 10 years now. It is something I enjoy. I love writing stories that help and inspire others. I also enjoy reading stories that help and inspire me. I am happy to say that I found some amazing blogs that I read every day.
So, now when I said that, I can go back to money. So, even though money isn’t a reason why I blog, my dream goal is still to do this as a full time job. And because of that, I am working hard to earn as much as I can on my blog.
April 2016 Blog Income Report
How much did I make?
Until recently, I just had two sources of income on my blog. Those were Amazon Affiliate and Google Ads. Two months ago, I decided to start accepting sponsored post and reviews on my site. I know some bloggers earn enough money to support their families just by doing sponsored posts. I don’t see a big issue there, as long as you stay honest. If you’re doing sponsored post for things that you don’t actually believe in, your readers will get that soon and you will lose them.
When it comes to sponsored posts, my favorite platform so far is Linqia. Really easy to register and use.
But back to my income report…
Here is what I made in April:
Amazon Affiliates: 36.57 USD
Google Ads: 8.43 USD
Sponsored Posts: 292 USD
Total income: 337 USD
I know this is not much, but for me this is a great deal.
I have found lots of inspiration and new ideas through reading blog income reports from other bloggers. I wanted to provide the same feeling to those of you who are reading this and have some doubts about earning money through writing. I don’t plan to earn bunch of money here like some, but it’s good to see that I earn some extra money by doing something that I absolutely enjoy doing.
