It’s time again for my monthly blog income report. I’m happy to tell you that once again, my blog income went up. I have to give you guys some of the credit; knowing I’m going to be sharing my income numbers online really motivates me to work harder at making sure my blogging side hustle numbers continue to go up.
I like sharing my monthly income reports for the motivation it gives me, but my main reason for sharing how much money I make blogging each month is to motivate readers.
How I Went from Employed to Working for Myself
When I quit my job in early 2013 to start working on my own, I never would have dreamed that my side hustles would have taken off so quickly. By listening to podcasts, searching the Net to learn all that I can about making multiple streams of income and by committing to putting in the hours to get things done each day, I’m able to make an income that helps support my family well and allows my wife and I to continue living debt free, saving money and investing in order to reach financial freedom.
As you’ll see from the list below, my blogging income comes from several different sources. For me, using multiple sources that will benefit readers and help me earn money has been a huge key to my success. Read the report below and you’ll see how I make money blogging.

Making money from side hustles helped my wife Kim and I pay off $52,000 in debt in just 18 Months, and now side hustles are allowing me to do the work that I love and bring money into our family so that my wife and I can achieve our dream of financial freedom.
