Welcome to December’s edition of the Income Report Roundup.
This December marks exactly 2 years and 2 months since I started sharing these blog income round-up reports. If you have been with us, you know it has been a true life changing, mind shifting experience.
I have been sharing blog income reports for a number of amazing bloggers with the goal to encourage you and to show you that you too can build a 6 Figure Income through blogging, if and only if you take action and get started with your process.
But don’t get it twisted; blogging is not a get rich quick scheme. Far from it, blogging takes time, strategy and commitment. Our bloggers work hard and are consistently churning out great content, researching and finding new ways to expand.
They all started with zero earnings, some for over a year but with the right blogging education and consistently working to improve, most are now reporting thousands in profits monthly. So keep going and know that this journey will ultimately pay off if you remain consistent and stick things out!
With all the work they put in, it has been very interesting to watch them grow through their challenges and success as we continue to monitor their income reports over time.
December being in the last quarter of the year is a month that just flew by. It was a great month as well and all the last quarter implemented goals seemed to pay off for our bloggers; with almost every blogger posting an increase in earnings.
Some even started their New Year resolutions and started working on their next projects so as to keep up their momentum.
But if you are wondering why they share their incomes publicly then here are the reasons:
Why They Share
The major reason why our bloggers share their income report is to show other bloggers who are starting out or considering monetizing their blogs that making money from a blog is possible.
Another great reason is to share their blog strategies showcasing what works and what doesn’t, to newbie bloggers.
Income reports also help our bloggers to track their own progress over time and keeps them accountable to their goals and to their following.
These reports are a great way to see how other bloggers are making money, how you can improve traffic on your blog and shows you where you are lacking.
The beauty of it all is that you get to learn from their mistakes and their successes.
We personally began providing these Round-Ups as a means to provide a “shortcut” to the Reports, while providing insight and tips to help you fast-track your way to building a successful blog as a business.
Why I share the Roundup with you:
One of the main reasons why I share this Income Report Roundup is to help you realize a couple of things:
1. Blogging Works
2. Blogging Pays
3. You can turn your Passions into Proﬁts
4. You must commit to being consistent
5. If you treat it like a business you’ll get paid like a business, if you treat it like a hobby and be consistent, it will eventually pay you for a business
The more I read and create these Income Reports, the more I want to help you learn how to build a profitable blog quickly.
