September 2017 – Blog Net Income Report

Welcome back to another monthly income report on So Over This! This is my usual foray into my revenue and net earnings that I illustrate and publish for you all of you voyeurs each month. The best earnings are the kind that you make from the comfort of your own home! If you  want to replicate the earnings you see, or some form of them, check out my quick and easy tutorial on how to start a blog yourself.

I would like to layout that I am contemplating ending these income reports after the end of this year. That would mean three more reports to go after this one. I truly have no issues with privacy and disclosing my online earnings, in fact, I think it has helped me gain credibility and relevancy within the blogging and digital media community. I have actually gained some additional customers through conversations that stemmed from disclosing these monthly earnings. However, I do worry about safety and privacy, and publicly disclosing these kinda earnings opens me up to a lot of attention from spammers, hackers, and other people up to no good. I have seen some of that come through this year as it is. Anyways, my mind isn’t made up just yet, but be prepared for the possible discontinuation of specific monetary earnings at some point.

Without further ado, below is my summary of September earnings

 

 

September was a record-breaking month! Earnings came in at over $139,000!

Believe it or not, this actually beat my previous record earnings by an additional $40,000, and was the first time I have broken the 6-figure mark in a single month. Some of this has to do with payment timing, as I only record revenue and expenses within the actual period they are paid in-and-out. Regardless, I have seen a steady increase in business from my top 5 customers, and have seen an influx of additional new business from referrals. Customer service is my #1 focus, and I think that has shown through to my customer base.

Now on to my expectations, goals updates, and what’s to come over the next several months:

Acquire more websites and assure they are higher: I haven’t purchased any new sites since the last update. My position on new sites is that I will purchase good quality sites that come my way, when they come my way. Meaning, I won’t turn down a good deal, but I simply don’t have the time or energy to seek them out for the rest of this year. Come 2018, that might change.

Increase my customer base: This will always be a goal of mine, and I think it has been especially successful this year…but I think this can be removed from my “goals and path forward” section as it should just be a routine part of my business.

Work towards becoming a full-fledged digital marketing agency: Eventually I will have progress here, but nothing to report as of now!

 

Remember… it all started with one website…my entire business began with just starting a single personal finance blog! Now it appears I will have net earnings over $1,000,000 this year! I’m not a coder, I don’t understand anything that a website plug-in can’t do for me. I’m a technical idiot. My expertise and strength has been in my persistence to simply grow a business online and not to get discouraged and stop. It took me nearly a year until I earned a dime from my online endeavors, and now I’m on track to earning 7-figures annually.

My ultimate goal isn’t to retire, but rather, be financially independent. I work a day job currently, but the important part is that I don’t have to. I do it because it’s a challenge, I like the people, and I choose to do it. Eventually I might choose to do something else, and I am fortunate enough that I should be able to pursue whatever that is when the time comes.

Think of something you are passionate about and create a blog and put some effort into it! You don’t necessarily have to be the best at it…it only require passion and patience, and the money will eventually follow. Just go to my Easy 4 Step Tutorial on How to Create Your Own Website and get started. The sooner you start the sooner you can carve your path to financial independence!
