Monthly Blogging Income Report: September 2018

This is my fourth monthly Blogging Income Report. I have earned money from my blog every single month across the last 4 which I know is a privilege and I am grateful for the opportunity. This has been my best month yet in terms of earnings! I have included my followers/stats for September, my popular posts, income breakdown and where my referrals are from.

September Income Breakdown

    Sponsored Posts: 3 jobs. (88% of monthly income)
    Ads: 12% towards the minimum payout. This will roll over to next month
    Social Media Advertising Packages: 1 Job (12% of monthly income)
    Affiliates: 1.1% towards minimum payout (Amazon). This will roll over to next month.

This has been my best month for earnings as I have had multiple opportunities to write sponsored posts. Sponsored posts are also my favourite way to make money as I get to write and create content. This month, I earned between 1 to 2 day’s work as a Newly Qualified Teacher (my typical day job).

September Goals Reflection

  • I wanted to publish at least 8 blog posts which I haven’t managed. I was 1 post less than my goal. I have been preparing to post every day in October though which has taken priority.
  • To earn more than I did in July (my best month so far) was achieved making September 2018 my best earnings yet!
  • I wanted to market my affiliate links better which I started to do on 15th September. I am testing out utilising Pinterest for this first.

October Goals

  • To publish a post every day for Australia’s Mental Health Awareness Month. I’ve currently planned all Mental Health posts that I am set to write and have began to write and schedule them. I have also lined up a few guest posters who are going to share their experiences.
  • To learn more about affiliate marketing on Pinterest.
