Welcome to my Monthly Blogging Income Report for March 2017!
March was an awesome month for me. I've been working very hard and so I'm really glad to see the fruits of my labor show up so quickly!
This month was a little different because I actually decided to take on some client work, which has brought in a nice chunk of additional income, just in time to pay my taxes in April! I don't feature this income in these income reports because I want to focus on showing others how I make passive income through blogging and not through service work. However, offering services is a good back up when you are in need of some extra money!
Last year I didn't save up much money at all for my taxes because I was too busy trying to pay off the debt I accrued on my credit cards over the past few years (I racked up $40,000 in debt... but I just see consider that as a sort of education fee for learning how to become an entrepreneur.) I've paid off half of my debt, and I'm trying to pay off the second half this year... but first, I gotta pay my taxes. Wah.
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 PASSIVE 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.

NEW THINGS I CREATED THIS PAST MONTH
Uber Driver Referral:
GOALS I ACCOMPLISHED FROM LAST MONTH
Create a new featured weekly post on this blog for the month of March: A 5-week personal nutrition + fitness challenge. Work on building up my new Facebook group and learn how to make money from it.(Still have a lot more to learn but I did take a free course from Caitlin Bacher and have been fairly active in my group!) Finish writing my story and why I rebranded my business for my About page on Whipped Dream.
- Create at least one blog post on Whipped Dream. (I did not make time to do this.)
GOALS FOR NEXT MONTH
I'm going to focus on helping female entrepreneurs create their brand and website (yep, I'm going to be doing client work!) See this post: 3 Reasons Why I've Been Working So Hard Lately for more info!
I'm actually pretty excited to be focusing on design work again! I feel like I've been doing so much writing on my blogs that it will be a nice change of pace for me... plus I'm excited to meet some new badass women! :D
BLOGS I'VE BEEN FEATURED ON!
Really happy with this month's blogging income report... I hope it keeps up for next month! I'm really trying to focus on helping people in any way possible and hoping the universe somehow rewards me for all my hard work! :)
Cheers to all the hustlers out there! Let me know how I can help you!
