Blogging Income Report – November 2016

Blog Income Report - how much do bloggers make? Read this and see.

November has been a crazy and busy month, buying lots of supplies for posts, and posting a lot of recipes. Gearing up for the Christmas season!

Curious on how to start a food blog (or a general blog)? <– Check out the guide! Don’t forget to check out my blogging resources too!

New expenses: 

Mad Mimi – After comparing my Mail Chimp to Mad Mimi, I saw that Mad Mimi was far more superior – for a lot less money! I’m saving over $20/month USD right now since I have made since the switch.

Broken Blog – Sometimes we come into unexpected expenses and after finding so many broken links and errors in my Webmaster Tools, I knew that I had to save myself the sanity and hire someone who know’s what they’re doing. That is why my VA bill is so large this time around (just fixing these errors is taking 20 hours and almost $700 Canadian – sigh, but I want my readers to have the best experience possible).

As for my income, I’m waiting on close to $6500 in unpaid invoices so hopefully, they show up before the year ends!
