One of the most popular posts I publish are my income reports.
So I decided to round up as many income reports as possible and rank them based on earnings to see how I stack up against the rest.
If you publish an income report on your blog and would like it included in next month’s post then please let me know in the comments!
Here we go-
#1) ACoupleTravelers.com – $9,920.00 (+$885.00)
Dave & Vicky have held onto the top spot this month with a great performance all round!
They have continued to grow their income with a superb blogging partnership while on their merry travels but are losing the will to blog.
Hopefully I’ll be meeting them next week in Prague though!
#2) MatthewWoodward.co.uk – $9,366.19 (+$3,933.95)
A better month for me that I was hoping would grab me the top spot but no dice this time :P
Still just falling short of my $10,000 target which I probably won’t hit this month either!
It seems once the blog has a great month like that I step off the accelerator & my time gets spent driving other projects & sites
#3) LeavingWorkBehind.com – $8,887.00 (+$568.29)
Tom got knocked off the top spot last month and slides down another place this month.
Still he is making a fair wedge so can’t complain! I hired him to do some writing for me this month and was worried how that may affect the income rankings :P
Nice to see you pushing forward in both work and personal life!
#4) PinchOfYum.com – $8,673.27 (+$1,579.75)
Another great month from Bjork & Lindsay showing us it’s possible to make money in any niche.
Most of the money comes from BlogHer but they are also making strong sales of their food photography eBook.
They’ve also launched an affiliate program for their memberships site so expect some bigger numbers next month!
#5) TrueValhalla.com – $5,565.00 (+$2,545.00)
Matt brought home the bacon this month with a huge boost in profits!
Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to move him up from the number 5 spot though.
It’s great to see he has caught the travel bug recently planning to live in Hong Kong for a month – I want to live in another country for a month this year as well :)
#6) LostCyclist.me – $2,098.13 (-$771.83)
The first blog this month to post a loss Quinton has held onto the #6 position.
Although he is in a do or die situation he did slack off a lot which he using to regain focus this month.
It all swings in roundabouts =D
#7) FallForDesign.com – $1,350.06 (-$650.61)
Autumn is another non mover in the mid field ranks this month posting a loss on last month.
Instead of working crazy 60 hour weeks she decided to throttle back to 20 hours to enjoy some quality time.
Still it’s not a bad amount to earn working part time hours as a designer!
#8) HowIGotRich.net – $1,673.00 (+$242.00)
Joe didn’t publish his report in time to be included last month, but this month he has posted a nice profit!
He has put a focus onto his writing services this month and hope to grows his earnings while building passive income streams.
Perhaps you should speak to Tom to see if he has any tips ^^
#9) Moms-Make-Money.com – $1,567.73 (-$348.00)
Working full time has caught up with Deby’s earnings has she hasn’t had time to maintain her sites.
She has also seen a drop off in search traffic (you should use the google sandbox and penalty checker tool) but managed to keep overall track levels on an even keel.
I think you could set some more aggressive targets :P
#10) CloudLivingJourney.com – $1,080.78 (-$559.74)
A newcomer to the roundup but a regular reader and commenter, Tung is doing a great job!
Take a look at some of his content and you’ll see what I mean!
Sorry to hear about your problems with the niche site – have you done this?
#11) AvocadoPesto.com – $903.00 (-$583.00)
Vicky didn’t actually publish an income report this month but the numbers were included in the ACoupleTravelers report.
So that means I don’t really know what they did or didn’t do this month!
I know they have had a hard time with search traffic and I completed a very brief site review for them, no changes yet though :P Must get the full report over to them.
#12) INeedDiscipline.com – $695.44 (-$9.14)
Dean is still pushing forward to grow his earnings but made just a tad less this month.
He experimented with a new advertiser that didn’t perform at all! And advertisers wonder why we don’t want to blindly gamble traffic with them ^^
Dean is branching out into some niche based affiliate marketing this month to help drive his earnings.
#13) WPSquared.com – $650.80 (+$363.61)
The WPSquared time have posted a good month jumping up from the bottom spot!
Try driving some social signals to your Genesis theme post so all that hard work doesn’t go to waste!
Keep on growing guys – the 17% increase in traffic says it all!
#14) MoneyHomeBlog.com – $637.25 (-$750.84)
CeeJay has posted a pretty big drop this month as his focus was elsewhere.
He has spent a lot of time planting a lot of seeds to turn into Amazon based money trees in the future.
I hope you’re running those 2x 600 word articles for $5 through Copyscape before posting them on your money sites though!
#15) MakeMoneyOnlineHQ.com.au – $552.00 (-$699.83)
Greg predicted he would have a hard time this month due to the recent round of Google algo updates.
Hopefully though this will be the bottom of the barrel in terms of earnings as he has been busy turning things around.
Let’s see you get back to those 2k months eh?
#16) My4HrWorkWeek.com – $540.04 (+$22.96)
Eric manages to remain steady this month after seeing some big drops in previous months.
Good to see he has managed to take control of that to a degree and get back to a stable platform.
I still admire his huge diversification of income streams, let’s see you grow again next month =D
It looks to be another fantastic month all round and I was confident I was going to nab the top spot this month but Dave & Vicky remained strong.
Perhaps they’ll buy me a beer or something in Prague next week so I stop crying about it :P
Still it’s nice to have some healthy competition to break that $10,000 a month barrier!
Last month the bloggers earnt a combined total of $46,408.75 – this month that jumpoed $7,750.93 to a massive $54,159.68!
Congrats guys! Last month I wondered if we could break $50k so next month its only right that was push to $60k collectively right?
I have decided to only include the earnings history of the top 10 blogs each month to make the graphs easier to read.
Let me know if that’s any better for ya’ll!
