• 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?

      Well done for earning over £700 in the last quarter. I also earn money from my blog but I don’t write a report about it.

      • October 29, 2016 / 12:26 pm

      I think the 3rd quarter stinks too. I’m praying this quarter is much better.

      • October 28, 2016 / 10:52 am

        Yea me too but its cool regardless

    19. October 27, 2016 / 7:54 pm

      Congrats on working with some great brands and those earnings. It’s an interesting concept to publish this kind of content for sure.

      • October 28, 2016 / 10:51 am

        Thanks Ellie, it has been awesome working with these brands

      October 27, 2016 / 5:42 pm

      I always find Q3 the slowest as it has the summer holidays through it

      • October 28, 2016 / 10:51 am

        Yea! That is true actually

    21. October 27, 2016 / 4:26 pm

      That’s a super earning! I’m thinking that I should start running a series like this too. It’s a great idea!

      • October 28, 2016 / 10:50 am

        You should hun its lovely and also ecourages other people to know its possible

    22. Tooting Mama
      October 27, 2016 / 3:27 pm

      Well done! Congratulations you’ve been doing so well. Like you say it’s hard work! But you are making money from something you love!

      • October 28, 2016 / 10:50 am

        So true, making money from something I love something I view as a hobby turned small business

    23. October 27, 2016 / 12:24 pm

      I think it’s naturally quieter for Q3 in terms of work but you’ve done amazingly well for earning that much! Well done! x

      • October 28, 2016 / 10:50 am

        Thanks Stephanie, it’s true Q3 is usually quite

    24. Sarahjane
      October 27, 2016 / 11:05 am

      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

      • October 28, 2016 / 10:49 am

        Take it slow, one day at a time

    25. October 27, 2016 / 10:57 am

      Well done! I would love to earn some extra money from my blog.

      Can’t remember if I had made anything in my first year of blogging

    33. Laura
      October 27, 2016 / 3:44 am

      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

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:56 am

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

    34. Blair Villanueva
      October 27, 2016 / 3:17 am

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

      What a great idea for a post 🙂 I have only been blogging a little over 3 months, but hope to be able to eventually earn a little from it x

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:55 am

        You definitely it takes some time and hard work with dedication

    36. Lyndsey O'Halloran
      October 26, 2016 / 10:46 pm

      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.

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:54 am

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

    37. October 26, 2016 / 10:23 pm

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

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:54 am

        That’s how I started too

    38. October 26, 2016 / 10:15 pm

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

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:53 am

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

    39. October 26, 2016 / 9:52 pm

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

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:53 am

      I love reading these, always so interesting. x

        Glad to hear it

    42. Esther Mukoro
      October 26, 2016 / 8:28 pm

      Well done! It’s is great to read this and it so inspiring for other bloggers to know it is indeed possible to earn money from their blog.

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:52 am

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

    43. October 26, 2016 / 8:16 pm

      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

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:51 am

        Exactly it changes every month but the potential is there

    44. October 26, 2016 / 7:28 pm

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

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:51 am

      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.

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:50 am

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

    47. October 26, 2016 / 1:55 pm

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

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:49 am

        Thank you for your honesty

    48. Mellissa Williams
      October 26, 2016 / 1:15 pm

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

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:49 am

        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

    49. Little Steps
      October 26, 2016 / 11:13 am

      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

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:47 am

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

    50. Yvonne
      October 26, 2016 / 11:07 am

      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 🙂

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:47 am

        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

    51. Imaobong Asuquo
      October 26, 2016 / 9:29 am

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

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:46 am

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

    52. Jo Wiggins
      October 26, 2016 / 8:57 am

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

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:45 am

        And I am sure yours will become one too

    53. October 26, 2016 / 8:51 am

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

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:45 am

        Thank you so much

    54. October 26, 2016 / 8:48 am

      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.

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:45 am

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

    55. October 26, 2016 / 8:45 am

      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

      • October 27, 2016 / 4:44 am

        Awww thanks so much Nikki much appreciated

    56. Tracy Morgan
      October 26, 2016 / 8:24 am

      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!

      • October 26, 2016 / 8:30 am

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

    57. Lisa Lambert
      October 26, 2016 / 7:27 am

      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

      • October 26, 2016 / 8:30 am

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

    58. October 26, 2016 / 5:46 am

      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

      • October 26, 2016 / 6:34 am

        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

    59. October 26, 2016 / 2:27 am

      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.

      • October 26, 2016 / 5:40 am

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

    60. Jessica Dolnick
      October 26, 2016 / 2:20 am

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

      • October 26, 2016 / 5:39 am

        Glad to hear it and hope you do

    61. Lois Alter Mark
      October 26, 2016 / 1:52 am

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

      • October 26, 2016 / 5:39 am

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

    62. Oyinkan Ogunleye
      October 26, 2016 / 1:01 am

      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 🙂

      • October 26, 2016 / 5:39 am

        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
