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 – $53,168.14 (+$27,164.30)
It’s Lindsay & Bjork’s best month for earnings so far and they’re expanding their team!
They recently announced that they will be hiring a remote office manager and have announced the position and opened the application process on Pinch Of Yum.
Lindsay has also started running food photography workshops which they have decided to host in a permanent studio location.
#2) MakingSenseOfCents.com – $29,069.00 (-$2,713.00)
Michelle decided to take some time off from writing in November to relax a little.
This month was the biggest ever month for affiliate income for her and in this month’s report she reveals the tool she uses to optimize on Pinterest and how she manages to stay connected to the internet on the road.
Next she aims to get herself one month ahead with her writing and is still working on her book creation and creating something like a course, webinar or forum to help her readers.
#3) AuthorityWebsiteIncome.com – $28,857.00 (+$13,878.00)
November has seen Jon celebrating his best month for income so far.
He’s seeing great results from his FBA business and both of his Amazon affiliate sites, and is reporting a record month for his Passive Income Portfolio.
He did however lose $1,500 in one day as he forgot to limit the numbers on a promotion code, a mistake which he says prevented him from reaching a new income milestone this month.
#4) MatthewWoodward.co.uk – $27,552.76 (+$2,527.91)
In November I managed to launch my first product, so now I can finally take some time to relax after a year of hard work.
This month we also had Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which made for the best month of income I have ever had on the blog!
For the next couple of weeks I’ll be sticking to maintenance on the site and putting together a plan of attack for the year ahead.

#5) JustAGirlAndHerBlog.com – $21,009.00 (+$6,357.00)
In November Abby launched her new product ‘The 2016 Intentional Life Planner’.
Joining in the Black Friday sales and offering 50% off an eBook, she was pleased with the results and felt that the decision not to put everything they have for sale on offer was a good one.
Much of what they planned for the business in the new year last month has already changed, so they have decided to stick to a 90 day planning strategy they recently came across.
#6) Untemplater.com – $12,312.00 (+$5,371.00)
Sydney is happy to announce her best month for earnings so far!
After experimenting with Amazon promotion for Black Friday and holiday shopping trends she was a little disappointed that nothing much came of it.
That said, she’s relieved to see traffic rising again and also picked up some extra freelancing in November. A new freelancing stream she’s currently looking into is pet sitting.
#7) DigitalNomadWannabe.com – $6,799.00 (+$1,091.00)
Sharon is pleased to be celebrating her best month for income so far for the second month in a row!
That’s not all she’s celebrating as she recently discovered the reason she has been feeling so ill, and it’s because she’s actually pregnant!
She’s now looking forward to putting her passive income to the ultimate test as she’ll be leaving things on complete autopilot when she takes 4 months of maternity leave.
#8) TrueValhalla.com – $3,487.00 (-$6,535.00)
In November Matt decided to take a well earned rest after October’s record breaking month for income.
On the days he did work he spent most of his time on his major project, a HTML5 game called Dragon Depths and a few other titles, working almost exclusively on games.
Orders for his new book ‘Learn To Make Games’ were higher than usual and sales of his ‘Mobility Engine’ also remained unexplainably high, selling itself through word of mouth alone with zero time spent on promotion!
#9) MissBiziBee.com – $2,918.69 (-$1,853.22)
Kaitlin has had a bit of a downturn for traffic and sales this month with no posts covering Thanksgiving and Christmas to draw in visitors.
She’s finally got an idea of what a full year cycle looks like in her business though as she celebrates a year since Miss Bizi Bee’s first post!
Although she would love to see her blog starting to earn more by itself, she reflects that it’s been difficult to find the time to invest in it.
#10) MyPathToPassiveIncome.com – $864.60 (+$772.55)
Also celebrating his best month so far for yet another month with a huge leap in earnings in November is Estaban!
This month he focused a lot more on social exposure and kept to a strict posting schedule which has resulted in his best month for traffic and income.
Going forward his goals include getting one or two guest posts on the blog, reaching 100 email subscribers and hitting the $1,000 profit milestone.
#11) DumbPassiveIncome.com – $562.70 (-$1,090.20)
Matt managed to make up for a not so great month in November at the last minute with his Black Friday and Cyber Monday affiliate sales.
His expenses were very high as he paid a writer to produce a 16,000+ word guide for his ‘one thing’ site which he will be giving away as a lead magnet.
He says this will more than pay for itself in the long run with the email list he is building on the site.
He’s been working on a two-step optin process to build the email list and going forward says it’s time to promote the site and start getting links.
#12) OneHourProfessor.com – $409.53 (+$956.99)
Ron has been spending the month focusing on his new authority website and getting his new course done.
Since this has been the first thing to make him any decent income online he has decided to make yet another authority website and a new consulting website.
His goals going ahead include getting both of those sites finished and figuring out a strategy to get new consulting clients.
With little time to post on One Hour Professor and an unfinished project already ongoing, only time will tell if having so many projects at once is a good idea…
#13) LivingOffCloud.com – -$1,969.90 (+$13,169.81)
New to the lineup this month with her third income report is Nadya.
She bought a new website this month, the second one so far, and decided to do everything herself in order to learn through doing after outsourcing the building of her first niche site.
Although she’s making some huge investments the sites have already begun to pay for themselves with actual expenses much lower than income.
Having only spent $16,996 on purchasing online businesses with a budget of $20,000 she’s decided to stop there for now to develop what she already has.

We have one newbie and two drop outs in the line up this month.
This month has been the biggest month for combined earnings so far with the total rising $36,357.20 to $185,039.52!
That’s despite the number of bloggers in the lineup decreasing this month and our newbie making some huge investments right off the bat, taking away from our total rather than adding to it!
Six out of thirteen of our sites featured are celebrating their best month for earnings so far with two of those celebrating for the second month in a row.
It’s certainly been a great month all around with Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales combining with the holiday shopping season to finish the year on a high!
If you feel inspired to start your own blog then why don’t you start a blog now? 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.
I’m having a problem with the graph right now and will update the post when fixed
