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!
If you feel inspired by this post – start your own blog right now!
Here we go-
#1) PinchOfYum.com – $31,073.42 (+$7,694.93)
The PinchOfYum team claim the top spot again with another record breaking month!
They have come along way since their first income report in August 2011 or $21.97.
Over the past month they have made a few changes to their blog that should help them increase revenue even further!
#2) MatthewWoodward.co.uk – $16,727.05 (+$2,381.57)
Last month was my birthday and the most the blog has ever earnt!
Strangely I took 2 weeks off entirely and income managed to grow, this has happened every time I’ve taken time off.
I also launched my internet marketing agency which is starting to bear fruit now!
#3) MakingSenseofCents.com – $12,787.00 (+$40.00)
Michelle started her blog after inspiration from reading income reports, this month she nailed it!
Not only that but she got married and still managed to improve income – congratulations!
She also managed to redesign her entire site & draw on new motivation after reflecting on what it means to be self employed.
#4) Moms-Make-Money.com – $10,728.23 (+$2,820.61)
Deby’s had a great month this time around posting a huge jump in earnings!
This was mainly due to one of her main affiliate programs having a huge sale which sent commissions crazy.
The only problem is they are now moving from a 30 day cookie to a 1 day cookie which will cost her 96% of earnings. Personally I would stop sending them traffic, dig my heels in and protest to get that changed.
#5) RatRaceGrad.com – $8,550.54 (+$2,452.45)
Last month Jennifer got the last paycheck from her job, but this month she has hit a home run!
Looks like her first month as her own boss has gone down a storm, earning 2.5x she would have at her job.
She sold a website, picked up some contractor work, made some book sales & has pushed forward with solo ads.
#6) AuthorityWebsiteIncome.com – $7,275.00 (-$13,860.00)
Although Jon has posted a huge loss this month he is well ahead of his income targets.
The services side of his business took a huge hit, but the passive income websites had a good jump up.
This is because the expenses for his service side business always hit the month after the income arrives.
#7) MyTanFeet.com – $2,659.36 (+$83.05)
Yeison & Samantha nearly doubled income last month and managed to post a small increase this month.
They have started to experiment with their sites which has seen a huge boost in subscribers so far.
With the world cup out of the way they can now focus on growing all of their projects before their big trip!
#8) DumbPassiveIncome.com – $2,602.85 (-$244.31)
Matt see’s a small drop this month but is still showing great overall growth.
He has been working hard on some secret projects behind the scenes which has had him distracted slightly, all will be revealed in Autumn!
Although his expenses are starting to get the better of him and he will be paying close attention to those this month.
#9) TrueValhalla.com – $1,533.00 (-$19,525.00)
Matt had a few tough months and had a screaming month last month, but this month the drop is huge!
This is because he move to Brisbane, Australia which took all of his time & energy instead of working.
He did see his ad revenue from HTML5 games along with book sales grow, but sponsorships suffered a huge drop as he wasn’t actively working.
#10) DigitalNomadWannabe.com – $930.00 (-$490.00)
Sharon is a newcomer to the list month and starts off in a good position.
Her income is made up from a range of affiliate sales, travel writing & her gambling product.
She is going to launch a new affiliate site soon and once income is solid plans to move to Kuala Lumpur in Asia, good luck!
#11) My4HrWorkWeek.com – $487.92 (+$201.64)
Eric posts a nice increase this month from his passive income streams!
He also took most of the month off while moving into his new house so it’s good to see the increase while he was distracted.
Now he is thinking about balancing his priority’s between work, family, new home & his online business ventures.
#12) RankTactics.com – $0.60 (+$25.49)
Rizvan was new to the roundup last month and posts his first profit this month!
It might only be a small profit but as you have seen, even the top dogs in this roundup start from nothing.
I’m really looking forward to seeing Rizvan grow over the next couple of months, keep a close eye on him!
I was happy to add another new blog to the roundup this month as the numbers seem to have been dwindling lately.
Last month the total income earned reached a staggering $113,210.94 which has dropped off to $95,354.97 unfortunately.
But what is interesting is 4 of the 12 blogs tracked here either took all of the month off or most of the month off which is what the dotcom lifestyle is all about!
If you feel inspired to follow in their foot steps then why don’t you start a blog today? It only takes a few minutes!
My next income report is due in a couple of days and it will be interesting to see what a month of hard work has done for me compared to the previous month!
I only include the earnings history of the top 10 blogs each month to make the graphs easy to read.
