Hello and welcome to my November Online Income Report. In the chaos of December I quite forgot to post this!
Before September, I had never done an online income report before. You know why? Because I never had an income to report before! (You can check out my first income report right here!)
To be honest I feel kind of funny sharing this with the world. I was brought up that money, and especially income earned, was private.
BUT, one of the main reasons I started to want to make an income on my blog, was because I saw and read other peoples’ reports and I was inspired! I think the first one I read was one of Rosemarie’s (The Busy Budgeter) and that was way back in March or April. I believe it was through Rosemarie’s blog that I found Michelle’s blog (Making Sense of Cents). You should check out both those ladies blogs, they are an amazing source of information and inspiration.
Anyways, after checking in on both blogs for a few months, I hit the jackpot when I found out Michelle was launching a course called Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing. I took the course and learned so much and started implementing right away and guess what? It worked! After a few months of “monetizing” my blog, it was finally making a (tiny!) income. I was thrilled!
So, how and where have I started to make an income? Through affiliate marketing of course! The other big difference was making the change from a wordpress.com site to a wordpress.org site hosted by Bluehost. (If you want to know more about how to start a blog with Bluehost, click here to check out my how to start a blog page )
I will forewarn you, November was kind of disappointing….ok honestly it was very disappointing, but it is all a learning experience and since I don’t have massive pageviews (yet) this isn’t super surprising.
Also, although I’ve been publicly publishing my income reports, this whole process has been a way for ME to remind myself to check in and keep tabs on things at least once and month as I’m not the most organized person in the world 🙂
Ok so, onto the nitty gritty of the breakdown:
Dream Big Printables ~ $0
Share a sale affiliates $0
Amazon.ca ~ $0
Grand total = $0 Not nearly as exciting as last month.
Now, I realize that income is not huge and exciting, but it is exciting to me! After 7 (!) years of blogging for fun, I made a little bit for my efforts these last few months. And I have plans, big plans to make this little blog of mine grow and grow. I don’t know if I will ever get to the amazing results that Rosemarie ($24,347.68 in August) and Michelle ($ 102,911.00 in September!) get, but they sure are inspiring! If you are interested in learning more about making some $ online I totally recommend taking Michelle’s course. You can even check out my review of Making sense of Affiliate Marketing here
My blog had a bit of a decrease in site views, down to 237 for the month of November from 303 in October.
My Instagram followers have definitely increased from 24 in September to 80 in November. 🙂
