Welcome to October’s edition of the Income Report Roundup.
If you are new here, this Income Report Roundup is an overall report I have been making over the last 24months. Tracking the blogging incomes of a few amazing bloggers. It has been interesting documenting their struggles and successes with the single aim of encouraging bloggers like you that blogging for profits is possible.
One thing that amazes me is the tremendous growth I have witnessed with these bloggers. Almost all started with 0(zero) earnings and some are already closing in on the $200,000 earnings a month figure.
But one thing to note is that this doesn’t come easy. Making money blogging is a lot of work but eventually more than worth it. One of our bloggers who happened to be our biggest gainer in October says “She had to work her ass off” to get the $40,000 increase that she posted in October.
Hard work and consistency has been the key tools for these bloggers. When you go through their individual reports you will notice that they share their goals for the next month and at least 90% of them accomplish those goals. One thing that will blow your mind away is how accomplishing just one of the set goals translates into increased earnings. Learn from them and continue implementing and completing your goals and see your blog make profits you didn’t think possible.
October was a mixed month for our bloggers. Some reported it as a good month while others not so much. But one thing is for certain with it being the start of the last quarter of the year, most are excited and working extremely hard to capitalize on the opportunities of the holiday season.
So, without further a due, here are the numbers. But before we get to the numbers section, if you are curious as to why anyone would publicly share their income report, here’s why:
Why They Share
These bloggers simply share their income reports to encourage other bloggers out there. Most of these bloggers attest their income success from having read a blogging income report as well.
They all agree that it’s not an easy thing to do. Most have even tried to stop posting the income reports but they say that the overwhelming messages of gratitude, support, and requests for help keep them motivated to post the reports.
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.
