Financial Report ~ Q3 2016

Q3 2016 Financial Report details my earnings throughout the quarter on the blog. I am a part-time blogger but I have been fortunate enough to found a way to earn some money. In my monthly sponsor posts, I share information relating to Brands and PRs that I worked with. Unlike my previous Financial Reports, I will not be listing monthly earnings instead I will list the overall amount earned.

All the Financial Reports shared are to show fellow part-time bloggers that you can still earn from your blog. I am not saying it will be easy to earn money from your blog but that, it takes a lot of hard work and dedication. In the 3 years that I have been blogging, I have read about the many ways you can make money through blogging. Some of the tips and advise offered are great, they work and some don’t. Whilst reading such posts do not be focused on the method working, instead adapt it for your blog.

Q3 2016 Financial Earnings

Q3 2016 Financial Report covers the months of July, August and September. Any earnings for October are not included, they form part of the fourth quarter earnings. The difference between this report and the last two reports (HERE & HERE) is the breakdown. This month I decided not to break the earnings down by month but to share just the earnings.

The Q3 2016 started off pretty well, I had a number of clients who wanted to collaborate. I am always honour, humbled and thankful there are companies who wish to work with me. I am not a ‘big deal blogger’ in any sense, my following is not ridiculously huge like others. But there is a difference between me and the some bloggers, I still have my individuality and voice.

With that being said, let me share how much I made in Q3 2016. This amount is calculated after the paypal charges are paid but before tax.

Q3 2016 total earnings: £703.83

I think I did pretty ok, I have not been able to replicate the 1k earning from quarter 1 2016 but that’s ok.

Do you ever share you blog earnings?

    • Thanks Stephanie, it’s true Q3 is usually quite

  • Sarahjane

    Well done! It’s always great to earn money from something you love doing! I’ve only started but haven’t really monetised my blog, like you say it takes so much time and dedication and I don’t think I quite have enough of that right now

    Congratulations on your blog earnings. I do keep track of what I earn through my blog- I have to as its my job but I wouldn’t blog about it personally xxx

    • I think it’s important to keep track of the earnings definitely. The sharing part is a personal choice

  • Blair Villanueva

    Congratulations on your progress! Keep what you are doing and never stop 😀

    • You definitely it takes some time and hard work with dedication

  • Lyndsey O’Halloran

    I keep track of what I get for review and how much it’s worth. I don’t get much through sponsored posts yet though.

    • I need to set up a proper fracker to document my reviews and how much they are worth

  • That’s awesome! I’ve done a few reviews in exchange for products, but I haven’t done any paid posts yet. One day! 🙂

    • That’s how I started too

  • I think it’s great when people share things like this, I’ve never thought about doing it myself x

    • Thanks Rhian, I saw it on full time bloggers mostly but hardly part time so I share mine for my fellow part timers

  • It’s great that you’ve had the opportunity to work with so many brands. Your earnings are excellent!

    • Thanks Esther, if I can inspire even just one person I am a happy bunny

  • Well done!! I love reading this information because it’s so hopeful for other bloggers. I earn part time from my blog too and the income varies from month to month, but there is definitely potential to always earn more. x

    • Exactly it changes every month but the potential is there

  • You did and awesome job! I love that your so transparent about how your doing with blogging part time.

  • Well done and thank you for sharing this info with us.

  • LaaLaa

    Amazing, you’ve done really well. I don’t share mine but I commend others that do as it’s encouraging for P/T & F/T bloggers.

  • J’adore Le Décor

    Great job on earning from your blog! I also like the honesty of your writing voice. I haven’t shared my earnings yet. But it’s something to consider for the future, especially if I’m able to help others.

    • Thanks so much, I hope never to lose my individuality as I move forward with the blogging

  • Well done on your earnings, I don’t discuss earnings on my blog

    • Thank you for your honesty

  • Mellissa Williams

    It’s always interesting reading financial reports from bloggers, my blog is my main income these days

    • Glad to hear your blog is main income, it’s nice to show fellow bloggers it’s possible for all types of bloggers can make something

  • Little Steps

    No, I don’t. And only because I’ve never really kept track of my earnings, and I doubt mine amounts to anything bigger than yours 😉 Well done! x

    • Awww your blog is lovely and I am sure it would pass mine lol 😂

  • Yvonne

    Good for you making money from your blog. i have made very little so far, in fact I think I have spent more than I have made. Maybe 2017 will be different 🙂

    • Sometimes it’s like that, spend a little more to maintain it and then it can start repaying it back slowly once you start earning

  • Imaobong Asuquo

    Your earnings are pretty good.
    I haven’t started making money from my blog, I have zero idea as to were to begin still .

    • I must admit I realised on Facebook groups to start off and still do sometimes

  • Jo Wiggins

    Well done for being able to make your blog a little money earner, I’m hoping to do the same one day x

    • And I am sure yours will become one too

  • I think it is great that you are making money from your blog. Congratulations and more success in the future.

    • Thank you so much

  • I don’t discuss earnings on my blog but I wish I could. I think it would draw too much attention to me and all. Brave of you to discuss yours.

    • I think it’s a personal choice and thanks for your honesty

  • Well done that is an amazing amount of money. Its easy to see why people want to collabe with you, your blog is lovely xx

    • Awww thanks so much Nikki much appreciated

  • Tracy Morgan

    I think it’s awesome people make money from their blog (I’ve made a tiny amount, but nothing ever worth disclosing), and that’s a nice little sum, I think! Good for you!

    • Thanks Tracy, I started out small as well and it’s been growing steadily sometimes better than other months

  • Lisa Lambert

    Well done that awesome I am 12
    Months in now and just starting to monetise and earn a little part time wage I plan to keep going. X

    • The secret is not to give up and give it your best effort

  • It’s so awesome that you’re sharing your earnings. When I was a new blogger I had no idea what I might be able to earn and I don’t want to ever ASK anyone what they earn as it’s rude! So it’s brilliant that you’re willing to share this, thanks 🙂 x

    • I found myself in that very situation when I started blogging but last year I decided I would share on the blog. This is not my main salary this is my side funds if I can say it that way

  • Wow, nice report! I hope to get like this soon! I don’t share my blog earnings, but perhaps I will someday. I know they are helpful for others.

    • And I hope when you do I can help them too 🙂

  • Jessica Dolnick

    Well I’m from the US but I think I can learn a thing or two from these reports!

    • Glad to hear it and hope you do

  • Lois Alter Mark

    I think it’s so generous of you to share this information. The more we can all help each other, the better for all.

    • Exactly my thinking, I know for some its too personal but its not that personal for me

  • Oyinkan Ogunleye

    So brave of you to share your earnings! People usually don’t do that. If you don’t mind me asking, is this total from affiliate linking & ads or sponsorships?

    By the way, its cool if its too personal to answer 🙂

    • Not a problem hun, for me earnings are 90% from sponsorship and ads. I don’t do affiliate as I don’t seem to earn anything from that
