It’s time to wrap up another month with the blog and it was a successful one in terms of income. I surpassed last month’s income by over $300. I’m pumped! Check out how the income is broken down into various sources.
Google Adsense $12.76
In-Text Advertising $5.33
Text Link Ads $11.20
Private Advertisements $350.00
Affiliate Programs $99.00
Paid Content $20.00
Total Blogging Income: $498.29
As you can tell this is by far my best month in terms of blog monetization. It is exciting to see some of the hard work pay off. While I just about hit my monthly goal of generating $500 a month in additional income this month, most of the money came from a single private advertisement for $350. Unless this begins to become more consistent, I am still a ways away from generating a consistent $500 a month.
Also worth noting is my Adsense income has definitely dropped off. I am trying to find ways to get that back up. If you have any thoughts or advice, send them my way!
In order to run this blog, I use Dreamhost. It is the easiest and most cost effective hosting I have found to run a WordPress blog. You can get your own blog up and running with no technical expertise required.
I also use Aweber to manage email list subscriptions. They have a fantastic service and no blog is complete without them.
Stay tuned to 20s Money to watch my my progress in my journey to build $500 in additional monthly income. How would your life change if you added $500 to your monthly budget? How would your savings or investing change if you had that extra money each month? Would you be able to get out of debt faster?
