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 – $15,048.82 (+$2,629.80)
The PinchOfYum team were knocked off the top spot last month but it’s great to see them reclaim the position!
They are making great money with their eBook products as well as some tidy affiliate commission from BlueHost.
I’m loving the new fan gate you built for Facebook guys – great tips!
#2) ACoupleTravelers.com – $13,902.00 (-$961.00)
Dave & Vicky continued on their around the world adventure a post a healthy profit this month!
Although they posted a slight drop from last month they did spend the entire month trekking around Nepal.
They have continued to grow their business and blogging relationship to boost earnings next month!
#3) MakingSenseofCents.com – $11,927 (-$407.00)
A new comer to the round up Michelle has posted a great month!

Be interesting to see what Michelle does with all of this new found free time!
#4) MatthewWoodward.co.uk – $9,855.79 (+$3,352.78)
While I posted a nice month on month increase I still fell just short of my $10,000 target!
Unfortunately I was ill for most of the month which left me unable to record any new tutorials.
I focused on upgrading the blog behind the scenes with some new features that have already started to pay off!
#5) LeavingWorkBehind.com – $7,556.86 (+$3,297.86)
Tom makes big steps this month with a huge increase in profit from last month.
He has relaunched his blog with a swanky new design and introduced some forums!
The big boost in his earnings came from securing some new writing clients throughout the month.
#6) GodOfSEO.co – $5,032.00 (-$8,207.00)
Charles posted a screaming month last month but this has taken a heavy hit this month.
With good reason though, he took a break to visit family in Cyprus.
And more importantly, he quit his full time job to work for himself full time – good job sir!
#7) Moms-Make-Money.com – $4,893.06 (+$1,184.79)
Deby has posted sure but steady increases in profits month after month.
She saw a great boost in her site traffic after a recent plateau which converted into some nice affiliate earnings.
November marks the 1 year anniversary of her blog so it will be interesting to see how the year wraps up!
#8) LostCyclist.me – $3,278.14 (+$655.95)
Quinton recovers from last month’s drop by posting a recording breaking month this time around!
He is making most of his money from Amazon although Penguin 2.1 gave him a slight wobble.
It’s great to see he also met Autumn from FallForDesign.com after both getting featured in these very income reports :)
#9) TrueValhalla.com – $2,545.00 (+$510.00)
Matt has taken some major hits over the last couple of months but it’s great to see him bringing it back.
He invested a lot of time re-designing and upgrading the blog which is looking much cleaner now!
Most of his income is made up from his html 5 eBook sales along with custom html 5 sponsorships & development work.
#10) MakeMoneyLessons.com – $1,374.18 (-$262.05)
Dean dropped off the radar for a little with income reports but is back in action this month.
Posting a slight loss from last month he was expecting it to be worse.
Most of his earnings are made up of freelance writing and publishing sponsored posts.
#11) AvocadoPesto.com – $1,259.00 (+$657.00)
This is ran by Vicky from ACoupleTravelers report.
Earnings have declined the past couple of months but it’s great to see revenue more than double this month.
This is mostly down to the new direct advertising relationships the couple created.
#12) MakeMoneyOnlineHQ.com.au – $794.00 (+$106.06)
Greg got hit with Penguin not so long ago so it’s nice to see him on the recovery path.
He broke some personal bests though including most traffic, highest ticket item sold and biggest adsense day.
I’m sure Greg’s recovery will continue in months to come!
#13) 87Studios.net – $258.26 (+$202.59)
Another newcomer to the list, the blog focuses on WordPress & blogging.
Kris has seen a nice increase in a range of metrics like traffic, search traffic, social media interactions & email subscribers.
Income also increased mostly from affiliate sales – next month should be interesting!
#14) My4HrWorkWeek.com – $253.83 (-$205.67)
Eric’s income reports are always an interesting read due to the sheer diversity.
However we have seen Eric’s earnings slowly dwindle over recent times due to his lack of focus.
He has learnt from his lessons though and has some great plans in play to turn it around!
There were a total of 14 blogs featured in the round up this month. Last month only 10 publish income reports so I’m glad to see more people publishing them again.
Last month the blogs earned a combined total of $60,709.99 which has increased massively to $77,977.94 this month!
Last month I was hoping we could break the $70,000 barrier collectively and we have managed to shatter that target this month!
Would it be unreasonable to break $90,000 next month? There is only one way to find out!
I only include the earnings history of the top 10 blogs each month to make the graphs easy to read.
