Income Report {June}

Firstly, I have not written this post to 'bost' or brag on about how much I have earned. I am writing it because I am actually proud of something I have done, for a change. I can actually turn around and say that I have earned more this month that I did it one month at my two previous jobs, and that makes me feel proud. My first job wasn't the best. It was something I worked towards in College but my experience there was pretty rubbish. Let's just say the boss wasn't all that great and I was glad when I decided to leave.

When I started blogging back in 2013 never did I think I would of made a bigger income than my previous jobs. Never did I think I'd even make any money out of my blog. If I remember rightly I had my first e-mail for a sponsored post at around 8 months or so into blogging. I thought I would write a few tips in this post too so it's not just based on my monthly income.

Since I started blogging and started earning from my blog I have had people asking 'how?'. I guess it's just hard work. There is nothing else to it really but here just a few tips that have helped me and if you are a blogger yourself some of these could help you:

- Don't start a blog just to earn money, it will never work.

- Join Facebook groups and keep notifications on as there are a lot of sponsored/guest post opportunities there. (Remember to say thanks!)

- Keep writing. They will come to you.

- Make sure your contact page or e-mail address is clear on your site.

Now back to what I have earned this month. It's not a huge sum but it has helped me out a lot this month. I am still yet to be paid by a few but I was given all this work this month.

So, as you can see all my earning are mostly based on sponsored and guest posts. I try and reach a goal of £500 a month and I have gone past that this month, so I am very happy. My total outcome isn't that much this month so I am happy with that.
