Hi friends & thanks for checking in on my Blogging Income Report. I finally hit the $1,000 mark! Crazy to think I've been writing these since January when my income was just about $450.  I've been able to increase my earnings this month thanks to adjusting some of my coaching practices & earning more from sponsored posts. Take a look at my income, expenses, & net total. I also get delve deeper into each income category. Read on, my friend!

Linqia Sponsored Posts

Linqia has been a consistent part of my blogging income for a few months now. In May I received compensation for Time Management Tips for Bloggers & Those Working From Home, a post I created for TP-Link as well as my post about Zevia, a stevia-based soda. Bonus for me: TP-Link added my post to their website, so I get a small trickle of views from that.

Blogging + Social Media Coaching

May was my best coaching month & I saw an increase in repeat clients! As a coach, I work with people one-on-one to better their blogs, their social media presence, & their brands. This is a really fulfilling part of my business. Learn more about my coaching & how it could help you!

Social Fabric Sponsored Post 

I wrote Self-Care Essentials to Bring to a Camping Music Festival, a sponsored post with Cetaphil, back in early March. It kept getting delayed until late May when we finally we were given the go-ahead to post.

Social Fabric Reimbursement 

I received advanced reimbursement for an upcoming trip & sponsored post. June's Income Report will see some additional expenses because I'll use the reimbursement for products, food, gas money, & experience purchases related to the post. 

Real Clever Sponsored Post 

I finally got paid from a Facebook & Twitter post from 90 days ago for the OREO MILKA Chocolate Candy Bar. Yum. A 90 day wait for payment is one of the longest I've encountered.

Linqia Referrals

As I mentioned earlier in this post, Linqia has been a consistent part of my blogging income over the course of multiple months. I've included it on my Blogging Income Reports, so some people sign up. I receive $5 for anyone who's accepted into the Linqia network.
