Welcome, it’s been over a year since I did a blog income report, but I think I’m going to start doing them again in 2018.
If you haven’t seen any of my others, you can see all of my income reports here.
Over the last few months, I’ve been earning over $10,000 a month with my blog. In January I had my highest month ever, $13,841.39. I know, I can’t believe it either, but I wanted to share with you exactly where that income came from.
Before we get started, a few things to mention. I started this blog in December of 2013, and have consistently published new content since the start. Over time, traffic and income have continued to increase. Don’t expect to start a blog today and make over $10,000 a month right away. It takes a lot of hard work and time to be successful. It took me a few years before I was making a full-time income.
If you have any interest in making a full-time income online, check out my review of Wealthy Affiliate. It’s the course and community that I joined in 2013 and it’s where I learned how to make a real income online.
Below, you’ll find the exact programs that I use to make money with this blog if you have any questions make sure to leave comments below.
