How I Made Over $12k Blogging | May Blogging Income Report

What goes up, must come down and what goes down shoots right back up! It seems as though I’ll have a high month, then a lower month and then it shoots back up! I had the best month of my life in May and I’m so excited to share it. Here’s the May Blogging Income Report.

May Blogging Income Report - How I made over $12,000 this month in blogging. Working from home resources.

New Expenses:

As always, the more money I make – the more I spend. I have a huge list of expenses that I need to dive into and when I make a little extra, it’s the time I do it. Updates to my design, SEO updates to my recipe card, supplies, equipment, education, it all works in there.

Milotree: I’ve been hearing about Milotree for months now, so I finally bit the bullet. It’s affordable (I think it’s $9 USD a month) and it produces results. I’m really happy with it so far.

Teachable: Teachable is the platform of the Click Start Club courses. As we’re rolling out a beta test group for the Editing with Photoshop course, w’re using the basic plan of Teachable to do so.

Hashtag Jeff SEO Course: These past few months I’ve been focusing on SEO. I enrolled in Hashtag Jeff’s beta group to test out his SEO techniques. It’s only been a month (not even) but I feel pretty confident in this investment.

CrashPlan: CrashPlan is an automatic backup of your computer. I paid for the year, so now it’s done. What I like is it backs up my computer, even when I don’t tell it too. I have too much valuable business and personal things on my Macbook and I don’t know what I’d do if it was lost. It’s peace of mind insurance.

I believe that the kitchen is the heart of the home. Whether it’s discussing your day, sharing the highlights of your trip, or just having quality time with a loved one; lives are brought together at the kitchen table.
