Welcome to my third Monthly Blogging Income Report!
So I've seen a decrease in passive income from my blogs this month, BUT, I have been very busy doing branding and website work for various clients, so I'd say it all kind of balances itself out. 🙂
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 my design and marketing services or any other 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.

*UPDATE 7/8/2017: Herbalife is no longer allowing me to disclose my earnings due to laws and regulations established by state and federal law and Herbalife Rules. They have asked me to remove all of my Herbalife earnings from my blog, which means all of my monthly income reports will be changing.

Keeping things simple this month.
I think it's kind of odd that I'm putting more effort into my blogs, yet I'm seeing a decrease in income. Maybe it's just the time of the year.
My traffic, however, is going up so I guess that's not too bad.
They say don't put your eggs all in one basket, and to have multiple streams of income, but managing 4 different blogs is tough! Plus client work. I feel like I made more money this past summer working just a few hours a week (I took about a 6 week break/vacation/hiatus) than I do now, and now I'm working allllll the time.
Ahh well. That's what these reports are for... analyzing & learning!
Let's see what November brings!
