Another month has come & gone. You know what that means: time for my March blogging income report. I'm excited to say March was my best month of 2017 (so far). I really hope to break the $1,000 threshold sometime soon. Let's look at this month's numbers.

Income 

Blog Sponsor - $5
Coaching - $280
Linqia Referrals - $20
Miscellaneous Sponsored Posts - $384.77
ShopStyle Collective - $2
Total - $691.77

Expenses 

itsCarmen.com Influencers - $5
PayPal Fees - $9.05
Product Purchases - $51.84
Total - $65.89

Net 

Net Total - $625.88


Note: I base my income report on earnings that were deposited into my bank account during that month. I did a couple projects in March that have yet to be paid out, therefore I will take that into account for my April Income Report.

The only exception to this rule is the $2 from ShopStyle Collective. I only get paid once I make the $100 threshold but thought it'd be misleading to post that I earned $100 from ShopStyle when in fact that was many, many months in the making.

March was pretty slow as far as sponsored posts. I had one paid Instagram photo with Secret Squirrel. Their cold brew coffees are scrumptious, so of course I was down to work with them! I also got paid for my January post, A Super Delicious Vegan Edamame Dip Recipe with Best Foods. 

I published a couple sponsored posts in March (5 Steps to the Perfect Date Night & I'm Going to KAABOO Del Mar (Again!)), but I won't get paid for them until April/May. I'll include them in my income reports as they come in.

I mentioned a couple sponsored posts with Linqia in my previous income reports, so a few people signed up with them. I make $5 if someone is accepted into the network (not everyone gets in). Thanks to Linqia's referral program I earned $20. 

This month was all about coaching, something I started in January. As a coach, I work with people one-on-one to better their blogs, their social media presence, & their brands. I'm excited to make this a regular part of my income!

I will continue to include coaching & paid social media posts in my blogging income report because if it weren't for my blog I wouldn't have those opportunities in the first place. I've learned the necessity of dabbling in multiple avenues.
