Welcome to my October 2016 income report.
I decided to do this income report to share with people who are on the fence about blogging. This report does not have the BIG numbers like some of the guru’s and that’s ok with me, it’s proof that the internet is amazing. I’m not sure if I’ll keep doing them, but like I said, if you’re on the fence I wanted to you show that it is possible to earn income from blogging.
Understand that it does take time. I started my blog in 2013 but I didn’t get serious about monetizing it until about 6 months ago. I’ve seen some bloggers do well fast. How successful you become will depend on your work ethic, audience, marketing strategies and other things. If you don’t have many followers right now that shouldn’t stop you, if you have something you want to share with the world and wanting to monetizing it at the same time GO for it!
Remember, you may be bad before you’re good and good before you’re great. I know I was horrible LOL. Check out How to Start a WordPress Blog in Three Simple Steps for more information.
Here are a few topics you could start a blog on:
- Weight Loss Journey
- A lifestyle blog
- Home Business Tips
- Cell phones and hacks
- Decorating Tips
- Mom Life
- A Family Blog
These are just a few, but you get the picture right?

I switched up the link in my Instagram bio for a week from Link In Profile to www.MimiZackery.com, just to see how it would show up in my Google Analytics, and it does. I will do better at driving more traffic to my website in the coming months and years, as I have made it a goal to become more visible online.
