Better late than never with last month’s income report! In November, I made $2,473.33 in income… woot! Actually, it was just shy of $3,000 due to my course pre-launch but I won’t see that money in my account until January, so I didn’t record it in November.
Anyway! Super happy with another month over $2k consistently. This is over half of my salary from my full-time job… meaning, I bring in more than an extra paycheque every month working just a few hours a week!
Read on to see the full breakdown…
Why I Write Income Reports
I don’t write blog income reports to brag, or make it seem like blogging is an easy path to endless riches. 💰 (Spoiler alert: it’s fackin’ not, okay.)
To be honest, every month I post one, I feel a little squicky about it. Should I be putting my blog income report out there? Will people judge me, either too positively, or negatively? Will it affect my relationships with other bloggers or, gah, clients?!
But, I push through, at least for now.
When I first set out to turn my blog from a $0 hobby into a profitable venture, I remember seeing income reports from well-known bloggers. Those were the turning point for me. Before seeing those, I never thought my blog could make any money at all.

I thought that was only for famous people with huge audiences, and people who blogged full-time.
Now, I realize that’s far from the truth! Anyone can make money blogging if you treat it like a real job, and that means putting in the time and effort to grow. These reports are a glimpse into how I do that for my own blog, and I hope you can find a new tip or tool in this report to help your blogging journey. 💁🏼
Blog Income Report
- Freelance writing clients: $2,007.72
- Etsy store sales: $84.92
- Siteground affiliate income: $63.72
Total Gross Income: $2,473.33
I do make most of my money from freelance writing for clients, and only a little from my own products and affiliate income. I plan to ramp that up in the next year!
Also in November, I earned $288 from the $48 special price pre-sale of my course, Blog SEO Bootcamp. I’m super excited about how that went.
I’ll write a full post on that soon, but I challenged myself to finish the course I had in my mind in only ONE WEEK. I forced myself to do it by pre-selling it and listing the release date. I made it, just in the nick of time (uploading videos takes awhile as I found out, lol).
