I don’t know about you but blogging income reports are kind of a holy grail for me. When I’m feeling a bit demotivated? I go read income reports. If I feel like I’m out of ideas? I go read income reports. Feeling like my blog is going nowhere fast? Income reports. Income reports, income reports, INCOME REPORTS!
They are hella motivating and one of the reasons I actually started this blog in the first place. If you are new to blogging chances are you’ve read a lot of income reports already. And if not – then you should seriously start ASAP!
(P.S If you haven’t started your blog yet, check out how you can start a successful blog here.)
Lately, I’ve been searching for more and more blogging income reports and I thought that if I’m searching, then someone else is too.
So that’s why I’m making this list of different blogging income reports from different bloggers. They are ordered from lowest income to the highest income.
Are you ready to be motivated? Then read on!

Aren’t you feeling super motivated and inspired now? I sure am. When I read these blogging income reports I KNOW that I CAN make a success of my blog. Each of these bloggers started out small, exactly where we are right now.
If they can do it so can we! We just have to work hard and not give up.
One thing a lot of these bloggers have in common is AFFILIATES! Whether being part of an affiliate network like FlexOffers, using Amazon Associates or selling other people’s courses through an affiliate link. It is clear that affiliate marketing plays a huge role in monetizing your blog.
Ads are great but you cannot just rely on ads – you need other income streams as well (except if you are Chasing Foxes – they make a lot through ads alone).
