Time for my March 2017 Online Income Report – that came around fast!
The months sure are flying by – my little guy turns ONE this month. Can’t believe that I have a toddler – where did that tiny baby boy go?!
If you’re new to The Million Dollar Mama, each month I document my blog progress, including my income, and what did and didn’t work.
I’m currently going through Elite Blog Academy, so this is also a helpful way to see how the course is helping me achieve my blogging goals.
I published my first online income report in November 2016 (my blog was just a baby at the time – only 3 months old.)
I didn’t make much money ($276) but I was really excited – it showed me that it really is possible to make money from blogging.
I also think it’s nice to be able to see my progress from the beginning. If you want to read my first ever online income report, you can read it here.
Thinking about starting your own blog but not sure how?
I’ve put together a step-by-step tutorial on how to start a blog with Siteground (the absolute best hosting company there is.) Everything is laid out for you in an easy-to-follow manner, so you can get started today!

Why Do I Share My Online Income Report?
People often ask why I share my online income reports?
I think Pat Flynn was one of the first people to start sharing his online income reports. If you haven’t heard of him, he’s incredibly inspiring. After Pat started sharing his online income each month, a lot of bloggers started doing it. And I read every single one I could find. I found it so inspiring, and I thought to myself, “Why not me?”
My goal in sharing my online income reports is to inspire you, and make you think “Why not me?” Because really, there is no reason why you can’t make money online, if you put your everything into it. I don’t have a journalism degree. I’m not a reality TV star who cashed in on my sudden fame (maybe I will be one day, haha!)
I’m just a normal person – a mom, wife, gym junkie, and personal finance nut, who decided that I wanted to share my knowledge and thoughts with the world. I know it sounds cliche, but if I can do it, so can you. Feel free to email me if you have any more questions about this crazy fun blogging world!
March 2017 Online Income Report
This is solely money made from my blog. This doesn’t include any other income sources, including freelancing, sales, investments, etc.
Total Online Income March 2017:
(This is the most I’ve ever made in one month in my entire life. Pretty dang awesome that I was able to do it from home, and get to spend every day with my little man.)
Blog Income Broken Down
Affiliate marketing makes up the bulk of my income.
I took a great course called “Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing” which definitely helped with this!
I mentioned last month that I had been accepted into a larger ad network. This was my first full month of being with Mediavine and as you can see, it’s been a big boost.
Update on March’s Goals
1) Continue focusing on Elite Blog Academy
I’m still slowly working my way through Elite Blog Academy. There’s a LOT of information to work through and I’m just taking my time and not rushing through.
2) Continue working with my designer for the site redesign
As you can see, I completed my site redesign. I worked with Laura from Pixel Me Designs and she was great. I really like how it turned out!
Goals for April
I’m considering bringing on some contributing writers – I’ll be looking into the logistics of this this month.
What are your goals for April? Have you considered starting a blog? If so, what’s holding you back?
