Welcome to my sixth Monthly Blogging Income Report!
January was an awesome month for me, kicking off the new year on a high note! :)
I've spent the past 3 months rebranding Whipped Dream to be more of a blog rather than a service-based business (graphic design and web design) and I'm happy to announce that the new site is officially launched! It's now an online business and blog resource specifically for ambitious introverted women who are looking to create success in their own way.
It's going to be packed with lots of DIY tutorials (blog posts, videos, ecourses, etc.) that will help women create and beautify their own website or blog so they won't have to pay to have someone else do it for them.
I also plan on providing business advice to help them grow their business or blog, and will be creating stock graphics they can purchase to help them make everything look pretty. :)
There will also be a private FB group that women can join to find and connect with other introverted women who are just like them!
For more details, see the about page.
My ultimate goal is to create as much passive income as I can so that I have more time freedom to do more of what I love, which is learning and creating. I do better when I'm working alone, on my own things, without the stress of deadlines and having to figure out how much to charge someone for a service. That being said, I'm very excited about this new venture!
Anyways, on to my monthly income report...
I'm producing monthly income reports in an effort to learn how to earn passive income through blogging.
Monthly income reports help me analyze everything better, in order to figure out what's working and what's not working when it comes to making money online. I'm hoping they also help keep me more accountable, give me the motivation to keep improving and inspire others who are looking to do the same!
MONTHLY BLOGGING INCOME REPORT
The income on this report was earned either through this blog or any of my other 3 blogs.
I consider this money passive income, as I did not exchange a set amount of time for a set amount of money in order to earn it. Instead, I put in the time up front to create certain things that continue to generate revenue streams for me but with little effort to maintain them.
That being said, this amount does not include the income I make from any service-related jobs I do. This is because service jobs require me to work with people one-on-one and puts a limit on how much I can earn each month, since there are only so many hours in a day.
The income reported here is the total money I received this month (some amounts were earned in the previous month, but weren't deposited into my bank account until this month.)
These numbers also do not reflect the taxes I will need to pay on this income.

I also wrote my first yearly review!
GOALS I ACCOMPLISHED FROM LAST MONTH
- I finally finished developing Whipped Dream and launched the new website January 23, 2017! There's still a lot more to build onto this, but I just wanted to start somewhere and get the ball rolling. I have a lot of copy prepared, I just need to lay out the pages on the website, which is my plan for the next month!
GOALS FOR FEBRUARY
- Keep building onto the new website. I want to see how much I can add to it, especially since I now don't have client work taking up most of my time!
- Figure out how to sell stuff on Etsy, Creative Market, Storevy, etc.
I'm really happy with my income this past month. Starting the year off on a good note helps motivate me to push harder! I'm so excited that Whipped Dream is now up and running and I can't wait to keep adding onto it! I think it's going to be really fun and helpful for others who are looking to create their own thing, too! :)
