Interested to see how much money I made online in January 2017? In my January 2017 online income report I share exactly how much I made from my blog.
Hi everyone! Can you believe we’re already in February? Sometimes it feels like the days are just flying by. January was a crazy month for us – we finally made the big move from Tennessee to North Carolina.
It was a crazy ride – we did the whole thing ourselves (we didn’t hire a moving company) and let me tell you – it was an adventure. After 10 hours of driving, 2 adults, an 8-month-old baby, a dog, two cars, and massive UHaul full of all of our worldly possessions (of which we had WAY.TOO.MUCH.) finally arrived.
The roads were iced over when we got here, so it was awesome when I started having a severe allergic reaction to the antibiotics I was on for an ear infection, and ended up in the emergency room. A couple of IV’s and a few hours later, I was released – still looking pretty scary, but feeling much better.
So as you can see, January was kiiiinda crazy, life-wise.
However, income-wise, January was awesome. For starters, we finally closed on our house (after some delays on the buyers end.) The market in our old city is absolutely saturated with houses, so it was a huge blessing that ours sold. Our initial goal was to break even, but we actually ended up making a nice little profit, so that was great.
As for online income, my January 2017 online income report is really exciting – it’s by far my best month yet.
If you want to be publishing your own online income reports one day, then I highly recommend starting a blog. I decided to start this blog back in July of 2016 (not that long ago!) and it’s far and away one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Not only has it allowed me to make money from home (and not have to put my son in childcare) it’s allowed me the opportunity to meet some amazing people and gain tons of valuable, marketable skills.

Why Do I Share My Online Income Report?
People often ask why I share my online income reports?
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.

Blog Income Broken Down
As you can see, affiliate marketing makes up the bulk of my online income, which is great. Whenever I use a product or service that I really love and feel like could benefit my readers, I will check to see if they have an affiliate program.
Of course, when it comes to actually make a full-time income from affiliate marketing, there’s a lot more to it than just telling a friend or slapping up an affiliate link on your blog. I’ve taken a few affiliate marketing courses but the one I highly recommend is Affiliate Marketing for Bloggers – Everything You’re Missing by Carly Campbell.
Ad network income is up from December, but it’s still not much to write home about. As I wrote in my December online income report, because my pageviews increased a lot (thanks to the strategies I teach in my course, Traffic Boost Bootcamp), I was accepted into one of the larger ad networks.
It takes a few weeks for them to get everything squared away and ready to go, so I’m still using Sovrn for ads. If you don’t have the pageviews to get accepted into the larger ad networks but you’d still like to place some ads on your blog, I recommend joining Sovrn. While $60.51 isn’t much, it’s more than nothing.
