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) MakingSenseofCents.com – $32,474.00 (+$17,323.00)
Michelle has posted her best month ever more than doubling up on last month.
This was in part to selling another website she ran in order to gain more focus on key projects like her blog.
However she also saw a huge jump in her affiliate income which resulted in her storming the #1 spot this month!
#2) MatthewWoodward.co.uk – $26,283.41 (+$14,068.19)
After a couple of big drops this month saw a huge recovery!
This was largely down to the launch of an exclusive internet marketing deals section & jumps in affiliate income.
I have however being traveling for the past 6 weeks straight into finding & moving house this week, so let’s see how that has affected income this coming Monday.
#3) PinchOfYum.com – $25,496.19 (+$131.68)
After celebrating their 5 year anniversary last month the team have maintained earnings this month.
Interestingly they have handed over the management of their blog ads to an external company. This is something they have experimented with for a while so it will be interesting to see what happens.
There is some great advice throughout their income report as usual, so don’t miss it!
#4) PassionIntoPayChecks.com – $12,000.00 (+$10,500.00)
Josh is a newcomer to the round this month and post’s his best month ever.
His income is made up from a number of niche sites that are broken down site by site in his income report for you to see.
He also sold his first website this month which led to a huge jump in his income from last month.
#5) TrueValhalla.com – $10,463.00 (+$5,643.00)
Matt was distracted last month with tax season but what a difference a little focus makes.
However it wasn’t smooth sailing as he spent half of the month with a hand injury, which is pretty important for programming and well – men in general.
But despite that he adjusted how he spent his time and moved forward on organization, research and design which has him primed and ready for his passion project Aeon Chapters.
#6) CubicleHoudini.com – $6,346.00 (-$4,155.77)
You might remember Quinton Hamp from the roundups when he published income reports on TheLostCyclist.
His new blog has being up and running for a while and gets featured here for the first time, posting a month on month loss unfortunately.
However he has some very interesting projects running at the moment including his product Houdini Act One.
#7) MyTanFeet.com – $4,041.22 (-$410.65)
Yeison & Samantha manage to remain steady this month while spending time in an inclusive resort.
Don’t be fooled though, they are working hard at launching something much bigger than the blog – a dedicated affiliate network.
This is already starting to bear fruit as they forge new deals and continue to grow!
#8) FreeYouNow.com – $2,214.31 (+$1,015.16)
Paul Piotrowski was new to the roundup last month and post another increase this month.
Last month he hammered through 31 posts in 31 days and he is done exactly the same again this month across a range of topics.
Although his traffic dropped he did manage to pickup some mentoring/coaching work which saw his income jump again.
#9) DumbPassiveIncome.com – $1,634.71 (+$96.16)
Matt’s passive income streams have allowed him to maintain earning levels this month.
He still continues to invest time with his family and introduced a 4th child to the family this month, a puppy.
His income comes from a mix of sources included amazon niche sites and selling physical products he sourced and placed in Amazons warehouses himself.
#10) OneHourProfessor.com – $1,127.36 (+$224.47)
Hitting a hat trick third month in a row Ron is seeing continued growth.
While he only managed to write a couple of blog posts this month, he did manage to finish and launch his first Udemy course.
Although the course is available now, he hasn’t properly launched it yet and is building out his launch sequence this month – stay tuned!
#11) LifestyleUltimatum.com – $482.05 (-$137.07)
Andrea continues to focus on working with clients rather than building the blog.
This is reflected in the drop in income this month for the blog although he would like to transition to full time blogger one day.
With that said he is wondering about what to do with the blog and it’s future direction.
#12) MissBiziBee.com – $452.60 (+$274.86)
Kaitlin is a new blogger but has posted a great month this time around.
Traffic is up by 80% and her earnings doubled but most of her income came from the growth of her craft based Etsy shop.
Who would of known that selling Britney Spears costumes (and others) could be so profitable huh?
#13) IncomeMesh.com – $354.36 (+$261.30)
Drazen Prastalo was a newcomer last month and posts his first increase in the roundup this month.
This was also his first month working fulltime on his web business after quitting his job on the 1st of April – congratulations!
He launched his first free WordPress plugin to build content upgrade popups and continues to grow his blog.
#14) MyRecipeBook.co.uk – $38.09 (-$6.47)
Charlottle has decided to make some major changes to her blog recently.
This includes changing the name, domain name and a total rebrand with everything she has learned so far – a high risk strategy!
Unfortunately this will be the last month she posts her income in the reports as she doesn’t believe income should be her focus right now.
#15) RestaurantCoverings.com – -$92.50 (-$25.26)
Philip is still growing his blog but was distracted by the day job this month.
He didn’t get to publish many posts or work on his kindle book and traffic dropped by 600 visits month on month.
Still he continues to invest time and money in his new blog and has lots of opportunities to explore this month.
Last month brought 3 new bloggers to the roundup and this month saw 2 more new ones, it’s great to see more & more people publish income reports to track their growth and share their knowledge.
Be sure to check out the reports of some of the lower earners, these are the guys fighting a real fight and you can learn a lot from their experiences.
Last month all of the blogs featured earned a combined total of $74,639.66, but this month that has seen a huge jump to $123,314.81!
The vast majority of the blogs tracked posted increases including some huge jumps by the heavy hitters towards the top of the table.
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.
