Hi all! I have been blogging since 2016 and I decided to monetize my blog at the beginning of this year. It wasn’t until this month that I could finally post an income report. I made .60 cents! I am not signed up for a lot of affiliate programs and I hope to sign up for a few more as my blog grows, so without further ado, here is my August income report:
$0 through Bluehost. I highly recommend Bluehost for web hosting. They have great service and a live chat option if you need help.
$0 through Amazon. I use Amazon to promote the kitchen and gardening supplies I like to use.
How I use affiliate links
Ads-My blog is a specific niche and I don’t want to bombard readers with irrelevant ads, so all ads you see on my site are made by me. I have used Canva to create ads with affiliate links.
Links-I use both text links and photo links in my posts to promote relevant products.
I am pretty frugal when it comes to my blog, so I did not have any expenses this month, though I did spend $45 last month on a new theme from StudioMommy because I wanted to add a scrolling bar of my posts on the homepage.
Goals for September
I do hope to earn more through affiliate links in September.
I did not post as much as I wanted this month because I have been so tired. Hopefully, I can pick the pace back up and write at least one post a week.
Finally, I want to promote my already written posts better. I am a member of a few different blog promotion pages, but I have not been as active as I want.
If I earn anything in September, I will write another post like this. Thanks for reading!
