October 2016 Income Round Up

Welcome to this month’s edition of the Income Report Roundup.

I started sharing these numbers earlier this year, and it’s been interesting to see the growth, the up and down cycles and the consistency of these bloggers as we watch their income continue to grow over time.

It’s very much like the slight edge, where a penny per day doubles, and after 30 days it’s worth over $5 Million… that’s the way these bloggers journeys been where they create one blog post after another, that begins to help them establish consistent income over time that continues to grow.

September was the month of getting back in motion, post the long summer break.  According to the numbers, the summer months didn’t stop their businesses from growing, which is the benefit of building a Blog Profit Center and more encouragement for you to get started today with yours.

I love sharing these income reports because it allows you to see that there will be varying months, and you can witness that cycles happen in business, but the goal is to remain consistent.

So let’s see what October’s numbers looked like for our bloggers report!

Why They Share

One of the most exciting things about reading blog posts to me is reading the Income Reports from Bloggers who decided to build a Business blogging.

For years I’ve been following several of these individuals as they’ve built their businesses over time and I’m inspired every month to see how their consistency and commitment has grown into successful blogging businesses.

Most people share their income reports to show their progress, create a sense of accountability and to track their growth over time.

What’s blown me away the most is how someone can go from their first check of earning just $20 for the entire month, to now averaging at least $50K per month on average.  It just goes to show “never despise small beginnings” and know that you gotta start somewhere.  And if you’re consistent, you won’t be earning small for long…

It’s very challenging to open up your world and share your income with total strangers, but it’s also super invigorating and liberating to see that people truly are creating a life around doing what they love, and getting paid well to do it.

Why I share the Roundup with you:

One of the main reasons why I share this Income Report Roundup is to help you realize a couple of things:

  1. Blogging Works
  2. Blogging Pays
  3. You can turn your Passions into Profits
  4. You must commit to being consistent
  5. If you treat it like a business you’ll get paid like a business, if you treat it like a hobby and be consistent, it will eventually pay you like a business

The more I read and create these Income Reports, the more I want to help you learn how to build a profitable blog quickly.
