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 – $32,647.95 (+$6,261.94)
Although the PinchOfYum team took a hit last month they still remained top – this month made an awesome recovery.
You have to hand it to them with consistent income numbers like that in a niche that everyone says is not possible to make money in – there is a lesson in that somewhere.
As always the team has pushed forward on a number of fronts and they are continually building there RPM – revenue per thousand visitors.
#2) MatthewWoodward.co.uk – $19,236.09 (+$811.19)
Last month broke the blogs income record and this month was even better!
Another record breaking month has pushed me to a new goal of $20k – it wasn’t long ago I was struggling to break the $10k barrier and fell just short a few months in a row.
Although I don’t think I will be reaching the $20k goal for another 2-3 months just yet, but let’s see what happens with my new income report in a couple of days.
#3) GodOfSEO.co – $17,799.00 (+$1,373.50)
It is great to welcome Charles back into the income reports especially when he is doing so well!
He got busy and didn’t publish on time a couple months back and then I forgot re-include him a couple of times so between us we are useless.
But with that said since Charles was last featured in the income reports his online efforts have grown leaps and bounds!
#4) MakingSenseofCents.com – $14,156.00 (-$781.00)
Michelle had her best month ever last month although there is a small drop this month.
You certainly can’t argue with those numbers though even if she is falling slave to the classic working from home syndrome. I think I still suffer from it personally.
But on the flip side she managed to take a decent break this month so you have to take the rough with smooth sometimes!
#5) AuthorityWebsiteIncome.com – $13,189.00 (-$3,019.00)
After seeing a near $14k drop a couple of months ago Jon is recovering well on his rocky road.
Jon has a lot of different faces to his business which helps to spread his risk and income. On top of that he has very ambitious goals and is certainly one to watch.
It is likely we will see a huge jump next month due to how the services face of his business is setup – good luck!
#6) Moms-Make-Money.com – $11,597.72 (+$2,701.71)
After having a $10,728 month in May, Deby has shattered her previous record this month.
Not only did she set a new income record she also set a new traffic record at the same time with 350,864 visitors between 2 sites mostly driven by Google & Pinterest.
The latest dress pattern she released was the fastest selling yet which has helped drives sales – not bad considering her top affiliate income channel was under threat last month.
#7) TrueValhalla.com – $7,538.00 (+$2,311.00)
After a $19k drop, moving to a new city & a small recovery last month – Matt is firing on all cylinders again.
Although it does seem he is also suffering from working from home syndrome losing most of his days to sitting behind a desk 12 hours a day.
He managed to secure a range of new HTML5 sponsorships for his games this month which helped bring home the bacon!
#8) RatRaceGrad.com – $6,381.92 (+$574.80)
Jennifer has had a great month all round if you read her report – there is more to life than the money!
While she had an increase in income she also managed to find 28 geocaches, spend 2 weekends with family, attend a football (hand egg) game and lost 6 pounds.
That is what the dot com life style is all about and it is great to see Jennifer balance work/life effectively which many of us are struggling with this month!
#9) MyTanFeet.com – $2,762.13 (+$771.81)
The travel blogging duo have posted a great increase in income this month.
They are starting to reap the benefits of all of the seeds they have planted the last couple of months seeing passive income grow significantly.
Right now they are working their way through Korea and Malaysia so it will be interesting to see what happens next!
#10) DumbPassiveIncome.com – $1,792.80 (+$9.94)
Matt was seeing month on month drop offs recently but has managed to put the breaks on this month.
He is busy working on his niche site at night case study where he will teach people how to build their own niche sites in the evenings.
While he is spending time and energy on that he is facing opportunity cost by not focusing on growing the income of established sites – but I believe it’s the right direction to head!
#11) DigitalNomadWannabe.com – $1,180.00 (+$10.00)
Sharon is another travel blogger and manages to maintain income levels this month.
She has had a busy month including a week long trip to Singapore and attending the Pro Blogger training event on the Gold Coast.
On the 31st of December she will move to Malaysia with her family so its make or break on all fronts!
#12) My4HrWorkWeek.com – $414.43 (-$79.75)
Recently Eric decided to stop focusing on making money online and focusing on his career but is still posting income reports.
It is great to see that even though he spent zero time maintaining anything he was able to add an extra few hundred dollars in his back pocket.
I hope Eric continues to post income reports so we can see how those passive streams perform over time!
#13) SelfMadeBusinessman.com – $108.00 (+$108.00)
Dave is new to the income reports this month but also runs the chart topping ACoupleTravelers.com before they stopped publishing income reports.
He has been working on this site for the past few months and is starting to get good traction on all fronts as he continues to build it.
This month marks the first earnings of the blog and I’m sure we will see that continue to grow in the coming months!
#14) RankTactics.com – $100.76 (+$70.76)
When Rizvan joined the roundup a few months ago he posted a lost of $38.40 – this month he breaks the $100 barrier.
He has a few interesting things in the works including a private blog network case study and is creating a lot of new content.
This has helped to ensure that traffic, earnings, subscribers and more continue to grow slowly but steadily.
It was great to see the return of 2 old faces to the round up this month, Charles from GodOfSEO and Dave from SelfMadeBusinessman.
Last month the blogs featured earned a total of $101,353.14 breaking the 6 figure mark for the first time in a while. This month that has increased to $129,903.54 which is a huge leap forward!
I wonder if next month we can break the $150,000 barrier collectively – if PinchOfYum and Moms-Make-Money continue on their current trends it might just happen!
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!
I only include the earnings history of the top 10 blogs each month to make the graphs easy to read.
