HOW I MADE $4273.93 IN JUNE
Hey there! Can we talk? How was June for you? Did you reach the goals you set for yourself in June?
I hesitated to start blog income reports. Why, might you ask? Well, I find that large numbers seem unattainable for some, whether newbies or whether they have struggled for years, and they think I can’t achieve that. But guess what? I started with no knowledge and learned as I went!
This post may contain affiliate links, which means I may earn some money if you click on one. Read the full disclaimer here.
So, doing a blog income report will allow me to show you it can be done, from scratch, with little or no knowledge, if you follow the steps given by real people with real knowledge. This also allows me to evaluate what has worked for me and where I need to improve.
My focus was mainly on getting accepted into Mediavine.
I’m happy to say I did just that!
I was accepted and ads were placed on the 13th of June.
I’ll break down everything I did from how, strategies, even expenses.

This post is provided to show the income provided by my blog and the progress of the blog.
You Too Should Start A Money-Making Blog
You may be hesitating because you think you cannot achieve this, but if I can do it with no starting knowledge, you can too! Or even if you have a blog but you’ve been having trouble determining how to make money from it, check out my post ‘How To Set Up A Blog In Under 30 Minutes ’.
So Why Did I Do A Blog Income Report?
Everyone should be tracking their income, whether their traffic is up or down, what their progress is, even if you don’t publicize it.
Everyone needs to look back on what worked, what didn’t work and how you can make changes.
Blog income reports also help me stay accountable, continue with my goals or change them, maintaining and increasing success.
I started my blog only with the hope of making an extra income, a side hustle if you will.
If Your Dream Is To Work From Home With A Successful Blog, It Is
I am always looking to learn and grow and develop my blog to its highest success.
For some, that may mean quitting a job they hate and staying home with their kids. For me, it’s a side hustle. I have chosen to stay in my career for now because of its perks. I not only work part-time but I make a full-time income, as well as get free room and board in my own luxurious apartment that has housekeeping and a chef. Sweet gig, right? No, I am not a sugar baby or anything unsavory lol.
I hope that you will be inspired to know that there is more in life and that you too can Chase a Better Life!
You just have to start!
Blog Income Report
Ok, So Here’s The Info You’ve Waited For!
I was accepted at Mediavine and ads placed June 13th with well over 25,000 page views (I actually have about 300,000 page views but it does fluctuate) at Chasing a Better Life, and it is continuing to rise every day! Page views are over 400,000 after my recent check.
The secret sauce for my success is positively Pinterest.
I currently use Tailwind (approved by Pinterest) to schedule my pins to all of my boards, including group boards. I do incorporate manual pinning as well.
2 ½ weeks = $3,949.35
My goal was simply to exceed my highest Adsense income ($450 was my highest month). I was accepted and ads were placed starting June 13th and ended up making $3,949.35 for those 2 1/2 weeks – woo hoo!
I am obviously happy with this since my blogging income jumped from $450 to over $3k! I was also excited to see what I full month would bring!
As I am always reading and researching, I have discovered that there are bloggers that have been working many years and still not making this. I will keep what’s working and continue learning new things to implement.

I found this, as with Jens other book: You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life, a great read. Her writing alone keeps you entertained but she is as full of wisdom as she is wit!
