It’s income report time and it’s my 9th month of blogging! The last day of January is here and I’m tallying up my numbers. How’d I do? I’ll show you the full income report including what worked and didn’t work, income sources, and more!
Ready. Set. GO!
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 DIDN’T WORK
Not much. I published a handful of posts, focusing on promotion instead of churning out low quality, high quantity posts. All in all, I’m super thrilled with my efforts.
Now, onto income!
