I might as well just say it: April was my best month yet! If you've been following along, I've been doing my blogging income reports since January. I've seen a steady increase each month & look forward to what May has in store. For reference, my January income total was $478.43 — I made $300+ more than that in April. Okay, let's get to it!

This month I continued focusing on coaching. As a coach, I work with people one-on-one to better their blogs, their social media presence, & their brands. I'm thrilled to see growth in this part of my business. I'm even more excited since I have repeat clients. It's fantastic to see them reach their goals & surpass them. Learn more about my coaching!

Linqia Sponsored Posts

I got paid for a couple of Linqia campaigns from March. I did a post with KAABOO, a music festival held in Del Mar, California. I also wrote 5 Steps to the Perfect Date Night, which was a sponsored post for Grocery Outlet. Linqia is becoming a regular part of my monthly income.

Miscellaneous Sponsored Posts

Miscellaneous Sponsored Posts were paid campaigns with brands that reached out to me directly via email versus through a blogger influencer network like Linqia. One such example is my Mother's Day post. These come in randomly, but I'm able to negotiate them more than if it were through an influencer network.
