Blogging and Income Report - June 2016

Hello! Welcome to my Blogging and Income Report for June 2016! Wow, the end of the month really snuck up on me! I can’t believe it’s almost August and 2016 is more than halfway over. I had a busy month in July with some personal victories and tragedies, but I’ll talk more about that in the July report. June was a solid month for me, even though I was on vacation for nearly half of it! My amazing readers really stepped up when I put a call out for guest posts and I had more than enough to share while I was vacationing in Hawaii. So THANK YOU so much to all of you, I’m so grateful. I really do have the best friends a blogger could ask for!

Blogging and Income Report – June 2016

Starting with my goals from last month. Since it’s mid-year I’ve been reassessing my goals for 2016 and I actually have been spending small amounts of time here and there trying to get some other things finished. Things that have been on my to-do list for a while now. I’m almost done with one of them and it will be ready to reveal soon, which is exciting!

I didn’t get around to playing with my blog’s main page layout but it’s still something I want to tinker with when I have the time.


Like I said earlier, I had a pretty decent June. My stats dipped a little compared to May but considering I was away for a big chunk of the month, I feel like I maintained pretty well. A 1-3% drop is not bad at all!

My top referral sources for June are the usual suspects – Google, Pinterest, Direct traffic, Facebook, and old URL traffic.

Other June Happenings

I kicked off June in Hawaii and didn’t return home until the 12th, then at the end of June I took off for a couple days in Martha’s Vineyard. Between that, I worked my tail off to get new content out five days a week, only missing a day or two. I didn’t go to Disneyland AT ALL in June. Isn’t that sad?!?


Here’s what I earned in June 2016. I list the earnings by network, and then state the specific brands/shops in parenthesis. If I didn’t make any money through a specific affiliate channel, I will leave it off the list (all those zeros could get depressing)!

(Keep in mind this is just money I’m making through my websites. I also have a few other part time jobs which I am not including here.)

Ad Networks

Google Adsense – $60.23
Media.Net – $0.05 (Still a mystery!)
PadSquad – $194.26

Brand Campaigns

Sponsored Content – $250
Sponsored Tweets (Izea) – $4

Affiliates (some of the links below contain my affiliate code)

Amazon – $59.38
ShopSense – $21.76
Share-a-Sale – $134.09 (Wayfair, RedBubble, Rent the Runway)
Affiliate Window – $355.96 (Etsy)

Total revenue for June 2016 = $1079.73.
– Total revenue the previous month = $904.02.
– Difference: $175.71

So happy to have my second ever four digit month! Look guys, I know I make small potatoes compared to other income reports, but if someone had told me a couple years ago that some day I’d make $1000 on my little website I’d never believe them. So it’s very exciting to me. And hopefully in the future when I have my first or second five-figure month, I’ll still feel humble about it, haha.

Things I need to work on:

Continuing with my big goals for 2016 and seeing what I need to do to get them all done this year. I should also probably spend less time playing Pokemon Go and Disney Emoji Blitz.

That’s it for now! Thank you for reading. Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll try my best to answer! I also would like to know if the information I’m providing is helpful or what else you would want to see/learn from an income report. Let me know how I can help you! Have a great month, everyone!
