Online Income Report | January 2021

In an attempt to track and stay more aware of my side hustle efforts, I've decided to start posting an Online Income Report every month. This might seem silly right now as I'm hardly making any extra money, but I have big dreams for 2021 and I'm hoping that if I start this now it will be fun to look back on at the end of the year and see what my progress was.

Thanks for checking out this blog post! If you have any advice or want to share some of your own side hustle wins for the month of January, let me know in the comments below.

My Side Hustles

  1. Blogging. I write this blog and use Google Adsense to put Ads on my blog's sidebar.
  2. Writing & Publishing. I write and publish romance novels under a couple of different pen names on Amazon.
  3. Affiliate Marketing. I use affiliate links on my Youtube and Blog when I have a product that I love and want to share.
  4. Creative Writing Business. I make zines and sell them on Etsy.

My Income

  • Google Adsense - $0
  • Amazon KDP - $1.38
  • Amazon Associates - $0
  • Etsy - $58

Total: $59.38

Some notes:

  • I currently have Ads place on my blog by the Google Adsense program. In order to receive a check from them, you must reach their $100.00 minimum threshold first. So while I did make some money with blog ads this month, I will not be receiving a check because I did not hit the threshold.
  • My writing and publishing business has become a bit stagnant lately as I have not had any new releases in 2020. What a year, right? But I'm currently working on a couple of projects that I hope to have up in February.
  • I have not figured out how to hack affiliate marketing yet. But I'm going to be working on an online course called Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing soon so hopefully this will give me some ideas.
  • I was thrilled to have some Etsy sales this month! I do pretty well by selling my old zines on there but I have some new zines that I am working on and will hopefully release in February. Stay tuned!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out this blog post. Let me know in the comments how your month has been going and what some of your goals for February are!
