Financial Report ~ Q3 2015

Financial Report

In July this year, to commiserate my 28th birthday and 2nd blogaversary I shared with you my financial report where I detailed the earnings for the two quarters as well as the different products and sponsored posts I had the opportunity to be involved in. I did mention that I would share my third quarter so here it is, it’s not as explosive as the 2nd quarter but it’s still been good enough to support me through my holidays, spontaneous shopping  and unexpected bills.

Although this report is a month late I thought better late than never, so quarter 3 will cover the last 3 months excluding October which will be included in the Q4 report.

July 2015 – During this month I had such wonderful opportunities to work with different companies, I made £100 cash in the bank and £150 in products sent to facilitate my reviews. Not a bad month as this money helped me buy a ticket to Lithuania and pay my virgin media bill.

August 2015 – This month was also one busy month for me, I had fun mostly because I had finally booked my 2nd trip to Korea for the following month. I made £175 cash in bank and £75 in products sent to facilitate the reviews.

September 2015 – Though I had some amazing opportunities to work with a lot of brands I turned most down because I was fighting my blogger’s block and my lack of motivation but still then I did a few and made £175 cash in bank and £0 in products for review. All the products I was sent in September were moved to October/November for review.

So for the third quarter of 2015 I made £450 cash in bank and £225 in products for review. I think this was a good quarter as well.

Blogging has brought me so many opportunities I never thought I would have the pleasure of experiencing.

What has your blog brought for you? Do you write financial reports for your blog?

    I love to read income reports from bloggers describing how they made their income from the blog! Congratulations on making money on your blog!

    I think you did an absolutely amazing job this year & I hope I can do better with my blogging! It was a good read 🙂

    I love reading about things behind the scenes. Love a good earnings post. It satisfies the nosy in me 😉

    I have not seen bloggers post financial reports, but I like this! I always wonder exactly what blogs are making. Some do them for “fun” and others say they quit their full time job just to blog, so I always wonder how they were able to do that.

      I have met bloggers who have quit their jobs and doing blogging full time and earning considerable incomes from them but for me this is part-time and maybe one day I will be in that position too.

    I don’t write reports on my earnings. I feel that it’s personal but I see more and more bloggers doing it. So maybe in time I will.

    • November 22, 2015 / 4:12 pm

      I agree its personal but for me I felt as most things I share on here are personal so not why what I earn.

    Great job on an awesome quarter. I do believe doing the financial reports each quarter is an important part of doing your own business from home. If I did have a blog I would be doing the financial reports.

    • November 22, 2015 / 4:13 pm

      Thank you, and I agree this is a small business from home and has made it is easier when I am doing my taxes

  9. November 20, 2015 / 10:16 am

    Not a bad Q3. I’m terrible, terrible, terrible at doing financial reports. I hate tax time because of it. I need to get better!

    • November 22, 2015 / 4:14 pm

      Thank you, I hate tax time but with doing these types of posts I am hoping it will make it easier moving forward

    I always find these financial reports so interesting to read. Thanks for sharing. Blogging has given me a platform to share some of the projects I do for our house.

    • November 22, 2015 / 4:15 pm

      It is an awesome platform indeed.

  11. November 19, 2015 / 10:30 pm

    Sounds like a great month for you!! I haven’t done a financial report like this before great way to look back at previous months.

    • November 20, 2015 / 6:49 am

      Thank you, it was not a bad Q3 at all

    While I don’t write financial reports myself,, I really enjoy reading them! So many bloggers are doing them now and its really inspiring. It shows you can make something more out of your blog. I’ve been wrestling with the idea of starting them in 2016 <3

    • November 19, 2015 / 10:16 pm

      I never used to but now I am liking the idea hoping to inspire new bloggers and other bloggers alike.

  13. November 19, 2015 / 6:24 pm

    Congratulations on a wonderful quarter! Blogging can be lucrative but it’s also so much work!

    • November 19, 2015 / 10:17 pm

      Thank you, it is definitely a lot of work but I am loving it so far

    • November 19, 2015 / 10:18 pm

      Not a problem, I have just recently started sharing them and loving them too

    I have never heard of a financial report for blogging until now. It is a good breakdown that showcases what you have made up to now.

    • November 19, 2015 / 10:19 pm

      Thanks, I have seen it a few times and thought it would do me good to write one too

  15. November 19, 2015 / 1:12 pm

    I think it’s great that you are making money with your blog. I’ve never felt the need to share my financial report on my blog. I’m old school when it comes to sharing about finances, but I am thankful that my little hobby blog turned into so much more than I could ever dream. Who knew you could make so much money doing what you love to do? 🙂

    • November 19, 2015 / 10:21 pm

      I never even considered making money on my blog and then one day it happened, it was total shock but I loved it.

  16. November 19, 2015 / 11:30 am

    I always love to read how other bloggers are doing with their blogs. I have never thought to post a financial report, but it sounds like a great idea for a future post!

    • November 19, 2015 / 10:22 pm

      Hope you do one one day, I am find reading others inspiring so I did mine too.
