October sure was a fun month for me! My family and I celebrated my oldest daughter's birthday in Savannah, GA, and I did my first ever in person interview of Miguel Dakota, a finalist from the show America's Got Talent!
I'm happy that I was able to face my fears and start doing interviews for my Product Review Mom blog. I knew the day would come when I needed to start but I didn't know it would happen so soon. America's Got Talent PR company contacted me to see if I would like to do an interview of Miguel since their tour stop would be in Atlanta. I was hesitant at first but then I thought this is on my bucket list so why not get it done and learn how conducting interviews works.
I think I did a pretty good job considering it was my first time. But next time I'll need to use a voice recorder to make things easier so I don't have to email the PR person the questions I have asked him during the in-person interview.
Anywho...here are my totals for October:
1. Private Clients- $242.45
2. Squidoo- $13.09
3. MaxBounty- $509.40
4. Escalate Network- $976.87
5. ROI Rocket- $1444.20
6. Panthera Network- $4931.80
Grand Total- $8117.81
My income is pretty much the same as last month and I'm not complaining at all, I'm very thankful of it. I gave myself the goal of making at least $5000 a month so I'm very happy to be making more.
Last month I started my holiday gift guide which seems to be off to a good start, I'm getting a lot of clicks but no buys yet. Fingers crossed that I'll start making sales soon. I went the route of pretty much doing only affiliate links for my gift guide because I didn't feel like hunting down sponsors. I'll have paid sponsors here and there but I'm putting all my effort with affiliate marketing because that could bring me income that is consistent then a one time payment deal.
This month I'll be attending several different events! I'll be heading down to Florida for a conference and I booked two press trips that I'll be going to while I'm out there, you got to wait and see what it is. But if you don't want to wait then make sure to follow my adventures on Instagram.
Before I go, how do you feel when bloggers reveal their income each month? Do you think it should be kept to themselves or do you enjoy reading their monthly totals? The reason why I'm asking is because the topic came up last month in a group I'm in. The reason why I started revealing my totals so I could go back to see how much I've grown from blogging and show others that it is possible to make money from it. I see way too much negativity of people complaining they are not making money from their blog but some don't put in the time and effort to make their blog successful. Success with anything doesn't happen overnight, you have to work hard at it.
I hope you all had a great month of earnings in October and cheers to November!
