Here’s my income report.
I start 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.
Last month, I made over $41,000 working part-time.
And I’ve made over $305,000 this year.
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.

BLOG INCOME OVER TIME:
I think it’s fun to see the progress all in one place—so here is how much I’ve made since I first started the blog. And keep in mind, you can grow your income faster than I did.
Started a Blog…
I started The Realistic Mama blog in February of 2014.
In 2014, I made $10,072 blogging part-time.
2015 Total Income: $79,511 blogging part-time.
2016 Total Income: $84,785 blogging part-time.
Not to mention, I took 3 months of “maternity leave” at the beginning of the year and we traveled a large portion of the year.
2017 Total Income: $83,158 blogging part-time
After traveling and living in an RV for 8 months, we finally settled back down in coastal North Carolina. Living near the beach had always been a dream of ours and blogging allows us to work from anywhere.
This Year So Far (January – October Income): $305,033
All Time Grand Total…
Since starting the blog, we’ve made $562,559 total blogging part-time.
