My Blogging Income Report: December 2018

It’s time for me to reflect on December and how I have created an income through blogging. It is my 7th month of monetising my blog. You can see my progress each month by starting with June 2018’s Income Report. Also, a big thank you to everyone who voted for me to be short-listed in the UK Blog Awards. I will find out this month whether I have been successful.

Posts Published in December

In December, I did a partial Blogmas which is where I started to post every day of December and you can see a full list of my published posts by visiting my Blogmas schedule as I linked all of my posts there. I didn’t post every day as I’ve been working on something very special that I’ll be talking more about later in the month, so watch this space & follow me on Twitter! I did publish 11 posts.

5 of this month’s published posts were in my most popular posts of the month.

December Income Breakdown

Ads: 25% towards the minimum payout (AdSense)

Affiliates: 1.1% towards the minimum payout (Amazon)

Products: 3 products (100% of monthly income)

This works out to less than 1 day as a Newly Qualified Teacher (my usual income) but I haven’t taken on any additional projects this month so that was to be expected.

December Goals Reflection

  • I wanted to complete Blogmas, sharing a post every single day (31) of December and I managed 11.
  • I wanted to write about conservation projects that I discovered in Cairns which I have been doing and have some scheduled to be published this month.

January Goals

  • To write about Conservation
  • To talk about my goals and aims for this next part of my life.
