Income Report {July}


In June I wrote my first income report on my blog. I wasn't quite sure how people were going to take it. I was worried that some would think I was writing it to 'show off' but that's not the case. I decided to share what I earn each month because there are so many people who have asked me 'how do you earn money through your blog?' and so on. I wanted to show them that an income through a blog can be up and down. I also just wanted to show how proud I actually am of myself. Never have I been proud of myself about something before but knowing it is me that worked hard to get my blog to where it is right now, I am pretty proud of myself. 

All my income is from sponsored posts and guest posts. I need to learn how to affiliate programmes and so on, but that will come in time as I just never have the time to read more into it. Last month I gave tips on how to get work coming into your blog and the main thing was to do what you love and just carry on blogging - the work will come to you! This month I've decided to talk about why it is good to keep in contact with a PR. This month I had quite a bit of work from the same PR and it's because I have a good relationship with this PR. So, how do you keep a good relationship with a PR and why is it good to keep in contact?

- It's always good to keep in contact with everyone you work with because you never know, one day they will come back to you with more work.

- Always and I mean always keep to deadline dates, they will more than likely come back to you if you do! 

- Don't be scared to e-mail everyone you have worked with every now and then {every few months} and ask if they have any work going on at the moment. You won't get if you don't ask. 

- Be polite. Be kind. Ask how their day is. Just be nice. 

Now, back to my income report for July. Like I said above, all my work through July has been guest post and sponsored posts. Here is my report: 

INCOME: £1048.08

OUTCOME: £67

TOTAL INCOME: £981.00

I am really happy with this month's income. I couldn't be happier, as never would I have thought I'd receive that much through my blog in one month. Esepcially that July was a hard month for me because I was heavily pregnant and gave birth to my beautiful baby boy on the 16th. I am not expecting this much for August but I would still love to reach £500 or over.

  4. It would be interesting to see how you achieve the amount this month. Just a break down, as it might give people (like me I suppose) an idea on what work for you and what doesn't. xx

  6. I hope I get to make the same as you one day because it would mean I can stop working three full time jobs as well as clients on the side to blog full time. Would you mind me asking how you made that amount. You can DM me if preferred I am just curious. Don't worry your not showing off I think it is brilliant that you are so open about what you earn.

  18. I love reading income reports, really inspires me to keep going with my blog so that one day I can earn some extra money. So far I've only done review things for companies, not had any sponsored posts yet :/

  19. I love reading blogger income reports, it's so useful and insightful and I think it's really good of you to share this information in order to help others out. I only ever make the odd £50-75 here and there from sponsored posts. Do you charge other bloggers for guest posting, or do you mean if a company wanted to write on your blog that you'd charge them? Also, what are the best ways that you can recommend to find sponsored post opps? Thank you!

    1. Hi Kacie. Really glad that posts like this are useful. That's why I wanted to share them.
      I charge other bloggers if I don't know the blogger. I don't charge them if I know them and followed their blog {and they follow me} for a while.
      All my guest posts haven't been bloggers - so they are mostly PR's and companies.
      Bloggers required, Facebook groups and just work hard on your blog - get it out there. they are my tips on finding sponsored post opps x
