Extra Income Report – June 2017 – Money made from my blog
I’m so excited because this is my best month so far for passive income on my blog. I’m I chronicling my journey both so I can show people what is possible and also to track my progress and drive myself towards better results. These passive income reports show the extra money that I’ve earned through my hard efforts in blogging. It’s my pathway to financial freedom in the future.
June was a strong month for me, and it’s showed me that growth is possible. I felt for the last several months that things were just stagnating. But, this month, traffic started to rebound and affiliate marketing started to accelerate, especially with Amazon.

June traffic rebounded (in part due to my July 4th fireworks article) to around 115,000 page views.
The majority of my traffic is organic search (i.e. through google/yahoo/bing, etc). I have been working to grow and diversify my traffic and Pinterest is helping out with that. Here’s a helpful article on growing your traffic from Pinterest. I was a bit over 12,000 clicks for the month from Pinterest.
Oh, and if you have an interest in starting your own blog, check out my free tutorial here. (BTW, It costs way less than most people realize. You can get started for under $4/month).
Passive Income Results:
Affiliate sales $738.67 (my highest so far)
Amazon $664.72 (My highest so far. More customers are buying more expensive items more often).
EZBZ $ 63.40 (Customers can find local contractors here. Also, if you are a small business owner, you can sign up to be in the directory for free).
Tailwind $ .50 (this is my secret weapon to my success on Pinterest. Love it!). By the way, if you use my affiliate link here, you’ll get a free trial + later if you decide to do the paid version, you’ll get a $15 discount. One of the smartest investments I made on my blog.
Wayfair.com $ 10.05 (Home furnishings)
Ebooks/Ko-fi $ 59.46
Ad Revenue $1,133.81 (my highest so far)
Adsense $ 58.70 (only on 15% of pages)
Youtube $ 3.48
Total passive income = $1,932
My highest prior passive income was $1,571 and that was in March, a slightly longer month. Now, this month I had a few lucky/non repeating events, so I’d say my baseline is around $1,700-$1,750. Still this is higher and it shows things are going in the right direction. I’m hoping July will be even higher.
I’m in process of trying a few other ways to monetize my blog, and hopefully, they’ll be in place by end of July. I can never quite seem to get to everything I want to (especially since I can only blog part time).
Stay tuned for next month.
