My 2nd Month Blog Income Report

Sharing is Caring!

My 2nd Month Blog Income Report

Spring is finally here and my blog is slowly springing into life.

My blog will be turning 2 months on April 4th and I am excited to share my second month’s progress. A lot of things happened this month, some are good and some are bad.

But first off, if you haven’t yet, check out how I did on my first month of blogging.

Before we go into my blogs’ stats, let me tell you a little bit about My Worthy Penny.

My Worthy Penny was born as a result of our quest for financial freedom. I decided to start a blog on personal finance not only to hold myself accountable but also because I wanted to share my journey to others who has the same goal.

I wanted you to learn from my mistakes and from my successes. In that way, I will be able to help you reach your financial goals through my own little ways.

Why Am I Sharing My Blog Income Report?

First and foremost, I am sharing my blog income report as a way of documenting my blogging journey. By doing this, I will be able to have something to look back on with regards to goals and strategies that I did.

Secondly, I want to instill trust and give inspiration. I want to show you that I am also a real human being, who is starting from zero. I am a wife who works a full time job. Even with my very busy schedule, I still make sure that I have time dedicated to this blog.

Finally, I want to motivate myself. By posting this blog income report, I am motivated to put in the work and take blogging seriously. It makes me hold myself accountable.

What Happened This Month?

The game changer for me this month was that I was finally able to create a Facebook account. If you recall on my first month of blogging, Facebook deactivated my account and was not responsive on my appeal, despite submitting requirements that they were asking.

But this month, the problem was finally resolved. I was able to join Facebook groups and increased my engagement.

I also joined a couple more affiliate programs because I was pleased with them.

If you recall, I did a lot during my launch month. I signed up with the following:

This month, I focused more on growing my blog and writing contents.

However, just when you think everything is finally going the right way, there is always something that goes wrong. If last month, I was having trouble with Facebook, this time it’s my Instagram account.

After that big Facebook outage, my Instagram was disabled. It was a bummer because it was starting to grow. The account was shut down because of a third party app that I used to check who follow/unfollow me.

I guess I have learned my lesson learned the hard way. So if you are using one of those follow/unfollow apps, better stop right away before you get shut down. And if you are curious, don’t even think about it.

Now, I am starting from scratch to grow my new Instagram account. If you haven’t yet, you can follow me here. I will follow back and will not unfollow.

Income

This month was exhilarating for me when it comes to income. Although I did not make a whole lot, I am still pumped because I made my first affiliate earning and my first Google Adsense earning as well!

My earnings are very minimal but as I’ve said before I am doing this because I want to show you that I started from zero. Although a lot of bloggers out there earned a lot on their first month of blogging, there are also those (including me) that takes longer to make any.

Since I blog about personal finance and that includes making extra money online, I am including my earnings from the money making apps that I use:

SUBTOTAL INCOME= $14.18

Please note that these are earnings, not actual payout. Each app has its own payout threshold. I also earn gift cards from these apps but I am not going to include them on the total income.

  • Fetch Rewards (Referral Code: AN3AJ)
  • Shopkick (Referral Code: SHOP741145)
  • Drop (Referral Code: d0m46)
  • Receipt Pal
  • Honey-this browser extension is my new favorite when shopping online; it automatically searches for coupons for me during checkout.

If you want to check out the above apps, I would appreciate it if you will use my referral codes.

Here are my earnings from each category.

  • Ads and Sponsored Post: $8.64
  • Affiliate Income: $20.2

TOTAL INCOME: $43.03

Very minimal but for me, it is very encouraging.

Expenses

All my subscription trial ended this month, so the monthly charges started kicking in.

I am a subscriber with the companies listed below. They offer free trials so you can try them out.

  • Tailwind-you will get $15 credit when you use this link and a FREE trial

  • Convertkit-you can try them for 30 days

I used Siteground for my blogging platform but it was already prepaid last month so I do not have to worry about it for the rest of the year.

I also purchased two courses last month for a total of $99.80.

TOTAL EXPENSES: $177.73

NET INCOME: -$134.70

Traffic and Metrics

My traffic this month is quite encouraging. I was able to double my stats compared to February stats. However, I am still learning a lot along the way and I know I could do better.

I use Google Analytics for my data.

Page Views: 1,355

Visitors: 726

Most of my traffic still came from social media, but this time, Facebook was the primary traffic driver.

  1. Great job keeping everything in order! I just started my second blog and decided to keep it slow – I’m going to wait until I have several posts within each category I choose before I do the affiliate route (besides an Amazon one that never closed me out on my OLD blog) and then add extra finances.

    Right now I’m just paying for my Adobe Lightroom (since I enjoy photography) every month.

    1. Great job girl! My 2nd month blogging was around the same amount. I made $42 and I was totally excited about it. Great post and inspirational for other new bloggers. Keep up the good work!

    2. Amazing results. I need to learn from you. Did you pay for marketing through Facebook? How did you grow your Pintrest account. Also how do you get people to subscribe? As you can see in lost. I think I have good content, but I’m not getting subscribers.
      Love your stuff and any insight you can throw my way.

  2. It’s refreshing to read posts like this and not the β€œI made $5,000 my 3rd month blogging…”

    I am in my 5th month and so far have made a grand total of $90.53. Haha. I know I have much to learn, but constantly see the high dollar posts can be discouraging. I sometimes think if it has to do with me blogging about 3 topics versus just one. But I like having variety. That’s just my style I used.

    Again thanks for sharing and I wish you the best on reaching your goals!

    1. I agree it can be discouraging how other bloggers who post that they make a lot in their first few months of blogging but it can also be a motivation for us to strive harder. I think the most important thing is to do whatever you want as long as you are having fun doing it. Good job with the $90.53!!! Keep it up! :0

  3. I love that you are so transparent and detailed! I wish I was this organized. I feel like I’m all over the place right now. Great job and keep pushing!

  4. I am almost in my second month of blogging too, but have not done any monetizing yet. I need to learn it and get started on that. I figured I’d wait till I had some of the learning down first. Maybe in April I will set it up. Your profit is a good start. I don’t always believe the people who claim to have earned 5K in their first or second month, maybe after a year or two. Thanks for being honest.

  5. I love how candid you are. I just celebrated my first month blogging and made a whopping $0.72! I knew it wasn’t going to happen right away for me so I’ll keep plugging away at it and I hope you do, too.

    I’ll be following your progress in hopes I can keep up πŸ™‚

    1. Very interesting. I have been blogging for almost 3 months. I guess I should read your 1st months post to see how you got started. I will follow your progress

  6. Great post! I still haven’t made anything except $1.18 from AdSense, but every little bit counts. I think what you’ve made so far will really grow, at least you’re on track! This was really refreshing and inspiring to keep me pushing with my blog.

  7. Awesome job!
    I am in the very early stages of my blog too (April will also be month two of my blog since I launched). I feel like I have been focusing more on content than traffic but traffic is my goal this month. It’s so encouraging to see other bloggers successes (even if they are small in comparison to the big-time bloggers) because it give hope for little guys like me that everyone starts from somewhere!
    Congrats:)

  8. I am literally just starting my blogging journey. Doing research on Pinterest and came across your blog. I have to say this is the most realistic down-to-earth, and honest post I’ve seen so. Those huge numbers I see elsewhere are so daunting. I am following your journey for encouragement and wishing you well.

  9. You are doing pretty good for a new blogger. How comes you made such a small amount for sponsored post or is that just what you made from ads?
