January 2016: Blog Net Income Report

This blog income report shows Justin earning a whopping $44,821 from blogging, in a single month. I wish I could do that! I guess I need to start a blog, for it to be possible. That's more money than a lot of people I know make in a year. The best part is it's actually easy and quick to start blogging, and Justin even shows you how.


Welcome to the January 2016 blog net income report and happy belated New Year!

I have been watching many people around the blogosphere disclose their monthly online income, and quite honestly, I thought it would be a good idea to do the same. I am not disclosing any income from my day job as a Corporate Finance Manager. Instead, this will serve as a marker for the additional earnings I achieve as a result of my online endeavors and various side gigs.

Please understand that I am not disclosing this to make anyone jealous, only to serve as a very visual and tangible reminder that any of you reading this can achieve the same results…probably better even!

Category Explanations:

Advertising Sales: These are direct advertisements from various media companies. I have several sites which I own and have sectioned off that amount that I earn from those. I also place ads for clients of mine as well. These are other bloggers that I find advertising for, in which I keep a small percentage of the earnings for myself.

AdSense/Clickable Ads: These are the earnings I get from all of those banners you see spread throughout sites…they could be on the sidebar or even within the article itself. I actually keep the ads hidden and the only people that see them are the ones that find me through a search engine like Google or Yahoo. This way my more loyal readers aren’t bothered by the additional clutter and noise. This is an area I am always looking to increase.

Affiliate Earnings: These are the earnings you receive from selling other peoples (or your own) products on your website. Think of major players like Amazon Affiliates. If you put up their affiliate links people can buy items from Amazon from your site directly, which in turn earns you a portion of that revenue.

Misc Earnings: There will be always miscellaneous ways of earning income and racking up expenses! This misc. buckets is a collection of many items, some are recurring while others are one-off items. I might write an article for a major site and get paid $50 to do so. Or perhaps I help someone with organic link building. I also offer some minimal paid services for blog coaching and helping others start blogs…this earns me some additional income, but I haven’t widely publicized and advertised it to really grow that part of the business yet.

Summary and Conclusion

I totaled just shy of $45,000 this month! I know I’ve said this before, but I really mean it this time, this should be the peak of my increasing earnings. I am very happy and proud of the results, but I also had a huge backlog of payments/accounts receivable owed to me, and I was extending a great deal of credit to many of my customers. A lot of this work was done in anticipation of the holiday shopping season. Regardless, I’m not complaining in the least. I might not be able to sustain my 4th quarter earnings throughout the rest of the coming year, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t still increase my year over year revenue and earnings, which I am very determined to do.

Lastly, many of you may have read my journey of increasing my net worth $400,000 in just 4 years that I shared awhile back. I’ve been asking each month in these income reports if any of you would be interested in seeing a monthly net worth update as well. Well, if you were paying attention, I finally published my first net worth update for June, and will continue doing so for the foreseeable future.

If you are interested in earning online income, and making $200,000 blogging, trust me it can be done! I’m telling you, the internet has opened up possibilities that used to be non-existent. If I can start a website and earn money, then literally everyone else in the world can too! You just need to have a little patience, and a little persistence. If you’re inspired, I included a banner below for BlueHost, this was the Hosting company that I started with as well. They help you setup your site for free, and are one of the cheapest and more reliable hosting companies in the game!


  1. Oh my god – that is an insane amount of money to make in just one month! I’m going back through your old income reports now to learn a bit more about the number of sites you run and how you pull this off and organize everything to make so much. You just blew my mind!

  2. Wow, that’s amazing! I am a tad jealous, but it also sounds like you hustle your butt off. So sounds like you earned it. (By the way, do you find other bloggers ads? Or only more professional sites?)

    Glad you’re clipping along on your goals!

  3. Justin these amount blow my mind! Good job and congratulations!

    I really hope you can do more detailed reports, in particular for the Advertising sales. Basically how does it work? Do you create websites and then monetise with ads? If so… how many hours do you work per week and do you contract anybody helping you? You really know how to do things!! =)

    Also, I’ve updated you in the favourite bloggers list at and now you are second position.


    • Thanks Francisco!

      I probably spend about 25+ hours a week generating online income. I do have a friend that assists me with article writing, and he will eventually be taking an extended role. It took quite a few years to get to this level, but it can be done. I manage the advertising for websites for many many people, I find them deals, post the ads on their sites, and then send them their %…simple as that. But it took a long time to find a good client base of sites, and a good customer base that keeps coming back for more!

  4. Wow, great job!

  5. What the heck Justing, lol. That is a nice chunk of change. Well deserved!

    Congrats man!


  6. I truly trust you can accomplish more itemized reports, specifically for the Advertising deals. Fundamentally how can it work? Do you make sites and afterward monetise with advertisements? Assuming this is the case… how long do you work every week and do you contract anyone helping you? You truly know how to do things!!

  7. sir, your money is increasing month by month. Sir please write a strategy post by whic we are also able to earn that much amount.
