July was such an amazing month! This blog has started to take off, my husband and I took our big annual vacation, I quit my day job, and it has been the best online income month of my life!!! Thank you all for reading and for all of the support! Your comments and emails push me everyday!
Since this blog is all about How I Make Money Blogging, I will be breaking down the past month’s online income at the beginning of each new month. You can see my traffic stats for my main blog, Budgeting in the Fun Stuff, at the beginning of every month over there. So here we go!
July 2011 Income Breakdown:
- Homepage Ads: $2620
- Sponsored Posts: $1415
- Writing (Staff Writing and Ghost Writing): $545
- Freelance Online Tasks: $485
- Ad Negotiations for Other Sites: $1592.50
- TOTAL: $7007.50
First of all, HOLY MOLY!!! WHOO-HOO!!! HECK YEAH!!!
Okay, now I am putting that aside and acting as if it is completely expected…
As you can see, I do have multiple income streams but I am severely lacking in regards to passive income. Even though I work from home now, I’m still putting in at least 60 hours a week. That is probably not sustainable long term. I think I could happily pull it off for a few years and then I may just drop dead typing…
This tells me that I need to dig in a bit more. I need to write the eBook whose idea actually inspired the creation of this blog. I also should probably start concentrating on affiliate income a bit more, although I do tend to appreciate direct ads way more. Time to learn something new and take my medicine, lol.
Okay, just one more time, *DOING THE HAPPY DANCE*, *DOING THE HAPPY DANCE*. Okay, I’m good.
Any recommendations, questions, comments, or anything?
