Welcome to the March 2017 Blog Income Roundup! I wanted to do an income roundup because my blog is just in the beginning stage and I don’t have much income to report. So this post rounds up some income reports from various bloggers and I think you’ll find their reports to be very inspiring and motivating. Whether they make six figures or less than $100, it’s a good way to gauge the possibilities for your own blog! If you haven’t started a blog yet, maybe this will convince you that it’s time to get one set up!
First of all, some things to note – this is not an all inclusive list obviously but I wanted to give you a range so you can see that not every blogger starts out making a full time income. They all start off small and grow through time and effort. In addition, these are listed in order from smallest to largest. I’ve only posted revenue figures but I can tell you that most if not all of these bloggers have expenses such as hosting, promotions, premium services, etc. and they vary based on personal preference. Finally, I tried to give a little background on each such as the types of revenue streams these bloggers use but please feel free to click on each of them for even more detail as to how they earn an income!

Michelle (the lovely lady who runs this blog) is a serious inspiration of mine! In the future I would love to make six figures just in a year so this is just so incredible to me that she makes it in one month! I also love how diversified her income is.

As you can see, there is no one way that is “right” for how to monetize your blog! You can do whatever feels right to you whether it’s relying on ads or creating products of your own to sell. I hope you enjoyed the March 2017 blog income roundup and maybe it will help you to come up with a strategy and set goals for next month!
