Most of us start a blog hoping to turn it into a business. But a few months down the lane, we sometimes lose HOPE.
Maybe because we are not getting as many visitors to our blog as we expected. Or those affiliate links are not converting into sales, and your ad income is just not moving past $10!
So today I have compiled a list of income reports from NEW BLOGGERS making over $1000 a month in their first year blogging. Take advantage of learning from these new blogs on how to make money blogging for beginners in any niche.
I honestly hope this motivates you. Don’t be upset if you haven’t made money on your blog after a year or so of blogging. It could be the smallest mistake you are making that is hurting your blog.
Learn how these bloggers are nailing it and see if this is something you could incorporate on your blog.

Need a little more motivation?
This is my 5th-month blogging and as a mom of two kids that are not past their diapering stage, I ONLY spend 2 full hours on my blog every day. And I don’t blog as much over the weekend – I enjoy spending time with my family and the kids hate it when mommy is near the computer. I LOVE working from home, but I wouldn’t want that coming in the way of being a mommy first 🙂
For personal reasons, I don’t publish my income reports. But with the few hours I spend every day, I make around $600 a month. Hoping to increase those numbers when the kids start school. More time for mama to work on her blog, right?
The only two resources that have got me this far is this Pinterest course and this traffic transformation course. Both are written by moms and that’s why I love it even more. It’s easy to understand and written in a very non-techie way with excellent examples and videos to make life easy.
SEO is something that I am working on now, and if I find the easiest resource, I will add that to my list here!
