How I Made Over $12,000 In My 9th Month of Blogging


Ok, so in January, I was feeling renewed and I was ready to take my blog to the next level.  I knew that if I wanted to get serious about blogging income that I had to focus on services and product sales so I did and I had my highest income month ever!

I actually spent very little time on social media including scheduling pins in Tailwind and I still had growth. Here’s where the numbers fell at the end of the month.

    What is the Site Sale one? Does that mean you sold your website? If so, how does one go about doing that? I’m so curious about that one..

    Very nice, Jenn! I keep meaning to add your new blog to my Feedly account. I didn’t realize you had sold your other one until the author name changed. You had a very successful sale!

    You reference Freelancing in your Income Report. Would you please tell me what type of freelance work?

    Also congrats on your site sale! Would you please tell me how long you had the site before you sold it? I’m about to read your post about selling site like a pro. My apologies if you answer that question in this post.

    Thanks so much for sharing!
