How I Made $83,730.04 Blogging In 2018! Plus Where To Learn How To Make Money Blogging
Welcome to my 2018 yearly blog income report. If you’re new here, I also do monthly Blog Income Report that you can see here. On this page, I’m going to cover Full-Time Job From Home’s income for all of 2018.
Below I’ll list all of the sites I made money with this year, give you a brief description, leave links to my reviews, and show you exactly how much I made. If you have any questions about the sites on this list, don’t be afraid to ask, I’m happy to share more about the site and describe how I promote it.
Before we get started, if you have any interest in making money online with a blog or website, I highly recommend you get started right away. I started this blog in December of 2013 (5 years ago,) and income like this did not happen overnight. It takes a lot of hard work and patience to get it going and then it’s usually a slow climb to build a large online income.
The training course and community that taught me to blog is called Wealthy Affiliate. They let you join and try out the first module of training for completely free.

My Thoughts On 2018 Income
Overall I’m pretty pleased with 2018. I had a huge January due to a new affiliate program that basically went viral but that only lasted a few months and after that income did fall back to expected earnings.
I can’t complain though. I usually try to meet three new posts a week, and there were several times throughout the year where I didn’t meet that and didn’t even publish any content for a few weeks. It’s unfortunate to not keep up with your goals, but it’s incredible that an online business can continue to bring in a great income even if you don’t have time to do the work needed to keep it going.
2018 was a great year for Full-Time Job From Home, and I’m excited to continue to grow and bring new great content in 2019 and beyond.
Now that you’ve seen my income let’s talk about how you can get started on your blogging journey.
Where I Learned To Blog: Wealthy Affiliate
Overall 2018 was a great year for Full-Time Job From Home, and it’s been a long journey. I haven’t always published income reports, but I really wish I had because although this blog made money within three months of starting it, it didn’t make much for a while. But that’s how blogging works, you learn, apply what you learn, and keep repeating the process. It takes a long time to gain traction and build an audience, but once you do it’s a process that you continue to repeat to grow.
For that reason, I recommend anyone that has any interest in starting a blog at any time to get started right away. Even if you just learn the basics of how it works and create your first website today, you can give yourself a huge advantage if you decide you’re ready to give blogging a shot a year from now.
The place that I learned to blog and the place that I recommend is called Wealthy Affiliate. It’s a blogging training course and community. The course is 5 modules that cover everything from how the money making process works, how to create your first website, how to create content that brings in traffic, how to monetize your site, how to promote your content on social media, and much more.
The course is designed for complete beginners, taking you step by step with text and video training. If you find that you’re stuck or don’t understand a concept you have one on one support from me along with a community of 1,000s of other members ready to help.
The best part about Wealthy Affiliate is they let you try for completely free. You can sign up for a free membership and work through the first ten lessons plus have access to the community (which includes me) for completely free. The first lesson is going to teach you the money-making process, which means you’ll know exactly what you’ll need to do to make money with a blog before you pay anything. If you’re familiar with most “Make Money Online” products, this is usually not the case. It’s usually huge unrealistic claims with no real mention of how you’ll be making money until they already have charged your credit card. With Wealthy Affiliate they let you try for free to make sure it’s right for you. Blogging isn’t for everyone; there’s no reason to be charged if blogging isn’t your thing.
So if you have any interest in making money with a blog, make sure to sign up for a free Wealthy Affiliate Account. Once you do, I’ll send you a welcome message, and you can reach out to me if you need anything. Work through the free lessons to see if it’s right for you and if it’s not, no worries!
