I promised all of you when I purchased RDS that I would report my earnings on this blog. You can read about my first month’s income right here. Keep in mind that this is the income just from Red Debted Stepchild and does not include the other websites that I own or income received from freelance writing. 🙂
Just like last month, I want to throw out the disclaimer that my income on this blog really isn’t “starting from scratch.” I purchased this blog because it was already established, which makes it easier to monetize. I also leveraged Budget Blonde’s advertising network from the past few years which helped a lot.
So, without further ado:
Second Month’s Income:
Affiliate and Direct Advertising: $1,001.25
Help With the Blog: $316
As many of you know, I have help in the form of virtual assistants here on RDS, and I also pay Grayson to regularly update the technical side of things. Combined, their services cost me $316.00 last month.
So, Earnings – Expenses =
Total Income: $685.25
This was an increase of $65.25 from last month, so I’m pretty happy with that. I was worried this was going to be a low month because I went out of town to Fincon and things were in general kind of slow. However, last week things got really popping, and I want to thank Kayla for all her hard work otherwise we’d probably have half the income we actually brought in if she wasn’t there to help me!
Hopefully next month will be even better but only time will tell. 🙂
How have your side hustles been going this month?
