Blogging Income Report for July | 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.July was a whirlwind, and frankly… I don’t even remember it… I was focused on my day job, Wedding Planner, and had a full wedding season. My Team and I did 15 weddings this summer. You can head on over to my other blog for those details…

Over here in Mom-Land I did not do much. However, this Online Income report does include the wedding blogs and online stores so it effects the outcome. Which did well, still.

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 back seat 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}

July enters…

The Great Migration

I finally did it. I moved my websites {all 3 of them} over to WordPress from Blogger. I became self-hosted with Siteground and worked with Linda Martin & Performance Foundry for the overall migration. It was a lot of work, but overall very successful. Thanks Manuel! 

You too can Optimize your websites with Performance Foundry by reserving any one of their WordPress Services.

Performance Foundry also does hosting and they give you a LOT for your money. Inquire about switching to their hosting service HERE.

My budget sent me in the direction of Siteground for hosting. If your budget is much smaller like mine {you also get way less} then perhaps looking into hosting with Siteground.

Web Hosting

This is really all I did the month of July. I migrated, tweaked and ironed out wrinkles that couldn’t possibly migrate such as teh Blogger re-directs on Pinterest and the Alt Text titles for images. I published no new content, except on the wedding blog, and yet…
 Here are this month’s results:
