Blogging Income Report for December | Making Mommy Money Online

Blogging Income Report for A Cotton Kandi Life. Blogging Incomes. How to make Money Online. Mom Blogger Incomes WAHM Income Report. How to make money Blogging. Blogging Money Reports. What an amazing year. I think it’s safe to say that I set my goals a little too low. I had no idea that this Blogging adventure would take off so well. This is my final report on Making Mommy Money for the year of 2016. It reflects the whole year and how I got here. You can scroll to the bottom and see what I did every month. This month I’m reflecting on where I am and more importantly how I got here, then using that information and the experience to guide me into 2017.

If you’re just joining in on this monthly income report series, my goal for 2016 is to expand this blog into a financial contributor so that I can stay home more and learn with my Hooligans.

I write 2 blogs, this mom blog {You’re here! Thanks!} and another blog for my career as a Wedding & Event Coordinator, which you can find HERE. This report is a combination of the two blogs. Truth be told, it IS wedding season right now, so I am busy with my in-person clients {really busy} so blogging is taking a backseat for the next few months. I’m actually heading out the door for a rehearsal right now! #ALLSummerFridays

Please join me by subscribing below as this Newbie Blogger fumbles her way through each Ah-Ha moment and forehead slap…perhaps I’ll save you a month or two on your own blog! 

To get the full rundown on my 2016 Game Plan visit my original Mommy Money on the Internet Post HERE.

The punch line for the year is to:

Build the Internet into a bigger financial contributor

Year Goal: $4,750
{2015 = $1,923.80}

December enters…

Looking Forward

Oh boy, where to begin? As I get ready to dive into 2017 I have so much in my head but not really a sure plan on where to start. I am so thankful for all the unexpected success, both from the blogging community and on Etsy. As you’ll see, most of my income this year came from Etsy sales, which are marketed from the blogs. I also have a huge overall income from Tradesy which is also a big factor over at the Wedding Blog, Green-Eyed Girl Productions.

 Here are this month’s results:

Sales Goals

Tradesy: December Report: $107.28 This is where I sell my wedding supplies. But I still have it down since I have yet to reconfigure the inventory I have left after the Wedding Resale Event at the Launch Party last month :/ You can sell your clothing and maternity clothes too. Not to mention buy pre-loved items at great costs! Join and start selling your stuff too.
