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.Do you know those times where you feel like kicking yourself because you realized to do something really smart and you’re wishing you had started it a long time ago? This is again how I felt when I Registered for Ebates… and regretted {still do} all of the online purchases I had made before getting cash back… It’s not too late for you… you can still Register for Ebates! You’re welcome.


I finally made some big steps this month, after everything settled down and I hunkered down into my “Husband Holiday” or at least that’s what I’m calling it… The time of year when I actually see my husband and focus more on him, not my income… He’s a big fan. What that means is actually going to bed before midnight and not running straight into my office as soon as he walks in the door with the greeting of, “Dinner is in the crockpot and Wyatt needs a change!” I’ve established it to be from my birthday, Nov 10th, to Valentine’s Day. This is a very low wedding season time of year for me so it works out great!

I was able to take another look, from way back at my small screen and attempt to automate a lot of it so that I didn’t have so many little pieces to keep up on…

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}

November enters…

Automated Income

This month I spent a little bit of time {not much} automating my websites to better filter to each other. I linked credit card accounts to pay automatic fees which would earn me extra money. I added additional Amazon links and even some Affilaite Window links to many more posts. I install plugins on the blogs that will build Facebook adn Instagram followers quickly and easily as people are viewing my site.

 Here are this month’s results:

Sales Goals

Tradesy: November Report: $0 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 teh Wedding Resale Event at the Launch Party last month :/ You can sell your clothing and maternity clothes too.

Chase Freedom Card Cash Back: $150– Now here is the biggest additions to my brilliant automation… I finally opened up another credit card account that is just for my businesses and online. I switched all of my automated fees {mostly Etsy} to just bill to this new account and then I set it onto autopay. So… ta-da! Instead of my Etsy fees {which I have to pay anyway} drafting out of my checking account, they now go to this credit cash, which earns me cash back, and then IT is autopayed too, but from my checking account automatically.
I went with the Chase Freedom Credit Card which gives me 1.5% cash back. I set it to autopay the balance so I never have to remember to pay it! Although, I do still login into my account often to check in on my rewards! My first round was $150! For doing nothing extra! Just paying my Etsy fees that I ALREADY have to pay! See all their details HERE
Blog Earnings 2016 Goal: $200 – $250
=$16.66 – $20.83 per month
November = $212.67

As stated in my original post I believe in order to accomplish a larger blog income I must continually work at increasing my Internet presence and “impact” which is calculated by the Klout App. Klout measures your internet REACH and how many people you’re influencing.

My current Klout Stats:

Klout Score 77 or higher- Currently at 56
