The number one question beginner bloggers (or those considering blogging) ask is: “Can you really make money blogging?”
I’m here to tell you that you CAN make money with your blog. If you put in the work, you can make really good money with a blog.
Don’t believe my word for it, see if for yourself!
Through my income reports, you can see how I started making money. You can read about the very first money I made, how I made my first $1,000 blogging, and my first $2,000 month (which was less than a year after starting my blog).
So yes, it is possible to start a blog in 2021 and earn money from it.
(if you haven’t started your own blog yet you can check out this post that shows you how to start a blog for only $3.95 a month)
What are income reports?
First things first, what are even blog income reports?
They are posts people write where they talk about their blogging income. They share how much money they made, how much money they spent, what they did, etc.
They are detailed posts where people share exactly how and where they earned money.
Why I’m sharing my blog income reports
It might seem strange to share your income on the Internet for everyone to see (not gonna lie, it is a bit) but I’m doing it anyway.
I think that income reports are incredibly valuable and you can learn A LOT from them (if they are done right).
That’s why I share mine. To teach you about blogging and making money. To share my struggles and success.
To show you what blogging is ACTUALLY like. And that you CAN make money with your blog.
I don’t write income reports every month.
I share an income report when I have a reason to.
When I have something new to share, a new strategy, a lesson I learnt, an update on my blog, etc.
I don’t want my income reports to be posts where I brag about how much money I make or posts where I don’t provide real value.
I want these posts to be informative and helpful to YOU.
To teach you something. To show you something.
Some other reasons why I share these reports are:
To track my progress
Income reports are a great way to track my progress and how I’m doing.
It’s so nice to be able to look back to my first months and see how far I’ve come.
I feel like it can be so easy to focus on the future, and reaching new milestone, achieving new goals. That you end up forgetting where you started.
We all start with zero.
Zero followers. Zero pageviews. Zero money earned.
And sometimes we forget that.
Having these income reports to look back helps me remember how far I’ve come and what I’ve accomplished.
When I’m having a bad day or I’m feeling discouraged I can look at my income reports and see where I was a few months ago. And where I am now.
They really help me get out of that mindset and motivate me to keep going and working hard.
I love reading income reports
Another reason is because I love reading income reports.
I love reading about other people’s journeys. How they started blogging, how long it took them to start making money. How much money they are making. How they are making money.
I love learning about other people’s business and what they are doing to grow it.
