I like that kind of articles on other blogs, so I figured I could do the same thing too. On the other hand, the majority of bloggers who write this kind of blog posts have incomes in the four digits. It can discourage more than one. This is the first time I’ve been making money on my blog for over six years, so I thought I would make an income report for that occasion – and to encourage you never to give up if you want to monetize your blog!
I’ve had a blog for years, but I’ve never earned a dollar. In fact, I rather spent hundreds (server, domain names, emails…). I am still in the red, that is, my income does not exceed my operating costs, but it is already a start!
This post contains affiliate links. Clicking on these links won’t cost you anything, but it might help me to maintain this blog by giving me a small commission. You can read my full disclosure here. Thanks!
Google Apps: $5
Namecheap: $13.04 + $16.06 = $29.10
DigitalOcean: $0 ($50 credit with the Github Student Pack! Which pays my server for a year for free)
Tailwind: 0 $ (still on free trial – used for Pinterest automation)
Grammarly: $ 92.50 (correction of my English articles)
Total : $126.60
By joining the “affiliate program” of Grammarly on ShareASale, we get $25 if we publish an article by mentioning them two weeks after approval of their marketing program. As I have been using Grammarly for several months now, it was perfect for me!
If you want to start to make money with your blog, I recommend ShareASale! On the other hand, it is important only to recommend the products that you have tried and love. I only recommend those I was already using before starting monetizing my blog.
Unfortunately, this month, I lost $101.10!
I hope that this article might help you and give you hope that you can earn a bit of money (or at least lose a little less money) while blogging!
