Blog Income Report – July 2016

Blog income report for July 2016. If you're curious on the income and expenses of bloggers, give this a read.

A new month, a new income report. I posted my first income report last month and I’m planning on doing so until September (or longer if I get enough interest).  So let’s get to it.

New expenses on this month’s blog income report:

Kelby One: I did a 10 day free trial and forgot to cancel. This is a photography course and resource site. Since I had a month to play around I took a few landscape lessons from Moose Peterson, learned a lot and downloaded the Nik Collection he mentioned for photoshop.

MailChimp: I can’t believe I didn’t realize this but my newsletter stopped sending out months ago. I’m a little upset I wasn’t notified via email about this, but it was because I had too many subscribers for the free option. I’m now paying, and I’m looking for new CRMs so if you have a suggestion, I would love to hear it.

  1. I love the full disclosure. plus outlining the expenses provides some great information for those of us still looking for new tools. Thank you for this.

  2. I am looking to start a blog and this info was very helpful.

  3. I most certainly would love it if you could keep posting this info! As a blogger I am always looking for new ideas on branching out as have had my blog for years and feel like I haven’t done much with it, except the fact that I like writing so it gives me a space to do so but would be nice to make some money at least. Any hints and tips I can get are welcome!
