Are you looking for extra side income?
Here’s how I made $7,832 working part-time last month…
A few years ago, I started publishing income reports so that others could see that blogging is a great way to make extra income.
I started a blog to test if a stay-at-home mom could make money online “blogging.” I put blogging in quotes because blogging is totally different than what I used to think of it.
The awesome part about this particular side business (besides the fact it makes over full-time income with part-time hours) is that you’re creating PASSIVE income and can be done from ANYWHERE.
Last month, I made over $7,832 blogging part-time.
MAY INCOME REPORT:
In May, I made $7,832 blogging PART-TIME. Here’s the breakdown…
Advertisement Income: $1305
Affiliate Income: $3085
My Book—175 Best Date Ideas: $252
Our Course: $3071
Misc. Income: $119
There are multiple ways bloggers make money blogging—ads, affiliate income, sponsored posts, virtual assistant work, freelance writing, products, courses—just to name a few. I used to do a lot of sponsored work until I published my own book and courses.
Not to mention, I only work PART-TIME on the blog.
Note: I do set aside a percentage of all my income to pay taxes, blog expenses and Facebook ads.

Started a Blog…
