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) PinchOfYum.com – $26,245.58 (+$6,745.82)
The PinchOfYum team do it again and reclaim the top spot where they belong.
They had nearly 1.5 million visitors last month which is absolutely incredible, over 500,000 of those are coming from Pinterest alone!
The team have been focused on improving conversion rate of their landing pages they also experimented with long vs short pins to see which got the most attention.
#2) MakingSenseofCents.com – $23,758.00 (+$8,362.00)
A big congratulations to Michelle for posting her best month so far!
Although the huge jump in income is down to selling a website, that does means she now has more time to focus on her other projects.
So we might see a big drop off in income next month, but looking to the future I would expect Michelle to beat this month soon with her newly found time & focus.
#3) MatthewWoodward.co.uk – $16,775.90 (-$4,187.83)
The blog had quite a big drop off as time was spent elsewhere.
First of all I’ve been working hard on the back end of the agency which has left less time for the blog.
However as I’m writing this I know what I’ve been upto this month that I am confident will see the blog reach the $50k month! All will be revealed on Wednesday :)
#4) TrueValhalla.com – $5,184.00 (+$2,046.00)
After taking it easy the past couple of month’s, Matt has stepped up a gear this month.
With a solid plan in hand and a new motivation to get things done Matt has invested time tweaking his workflow for optimal efficiency.
It is going to be interesting to see what happens this year with the Aeon Chapters project!
#5) AuthorityWebsiteIncome.com – $2,787.00 (-$12,169.90)
We haven’t heard from Jon for a while & unfortunately it’s his worst month ever.
The services face of his business took a big hit which is typical in the industry over the festive period but that has just filtered down to him.
Not to fear though Jon has a lot of assets and with multiple faces to his business he’ll be over the festive bump in no time at all.
#6) MyTanFeet.com – $2,398.82 (-$1,506.29)
With a similar increase last month, the travel blogging duo see a similar loss this month.
They have finally returned to Costa Rica after a long trip but that hasn’t stopped them travelling round and having fun.
The team striked an exclusive deal with a company that pays them great commission which is already starting to bear fruit! There is a lesson in that.
#7) DigitalNomadWannabe.com – $2,309.00 (+$1,001.00)
Sharon has had a great month of income growth even if it was a frustrating month.
Her computer broke and then the replacement didn’t work, then the shop was closed for a week. Living abroad certainly does have it challenges at times that’s for sure!
Traffic is growing steadily but more impressively she managed to quadruple sign ups to her blog – not a bad crack at the whip :)
#8) DumbPassiveIncome.com – $2,244.38 (+$3,302.90)
Last month Matt posted a $1k loss after making some investments that have really paid off this month.
Going from the bottom of the table after posting a $1k loss to the number 8 spot with a healthy profit is a great effort!
Hopefully he keeps that forward momentum going as he continues to reinvest and profit from his Amazon business.
#9) TravelBlogBreakthrough.com – $1,662.96 (+$834.16)
It’s great to see a new entry post a healthy boost in profit in their first appearance.
He has some great content on the blog and I’m sure we will be seeing Will rise through the ranks. Especially if he had his own product ;)
#10) LifestyleUltimatum.com – $386.61 (+$229.50)
Andrea has spent his time elsewhere but still posted a profit on last month.
While he is working with clients he has managed to switch his workflow to spend less time on the blog, but while still updating it just as often.
Planting seeds like that now will certainly grow and flourish in the future!
#11) OneHourProfessor.com – $92.08 (+$115.84)
Ron posted a loss last month but has fought back this time around!
Most of his income is made up from consulting and all of his time is broken down, but unfortunately expenses ate into the net profit.
He didn’t manage to meet all of his goals which have rolled over into this month, launching a Udemy course is certainly going to help with income!
#12) RestaurantCoverings.com – -$101.74 (-$7.75)
A new entry to the roundup & a blog that is still in it’s very early stages.
Even though Philip’s blog is still growing, he has already built an audience of nearly 2,000 people per month which is very impressive!
It’s now just a case of staying consistent, tweaking, growing & enjoying the ride.
#13) MyRecipeBook.co.uk – -$178.94 (-$196.12)
Charlotte is still growing her little recipe blog & is staying consistent with her efforts.
She is focused on creating new recipes left, right & centre but that’s not the only food content she could create. How about X Foods From The 80’s You Forgot About – there are lots of viral angles in the food niche.
Charlotte also spent a lot of time improving her photography, building foundation skills like that will reflect in all of her work moving forward.
#14) MissBiziBee.com – -$435.18 (-$95.74)
The third newcomer this month is Kaitlin. Nanny by day, blogger by night.
Her blog is focused DIY & crafts after deciding to quit her job and follow her true passion – a big step for anyone!
Traffic is already growing nicely and she is spending time and money to put the right foundations in place to grow quickly in the future.
We have had a bunch of new blogs added to the roundup this month and although 2 of them are posting a loss right now, they are the best blogs to pay attention to.
It is always interesting to watch blogs that are just starting out, the challenges they face & how they overcome them.
Last month all of the blogs featured earned a combined total of $84,163.31, but this month that has dropped slightly to $83,210.97!
Not a huge drop but with the festive slump well and truly over combined with some exciting new blogs to watch I am sure we will break the 6 figure barrier again.
If you feel inspired to start your own blog then why don’t you start right now? It only takes a few minutes!
