Well… it looks like I need to write more blog posts as the last one I wrote was about my April 2023 income report and today I’m writing about my May 2023 income report.
I made just a little bit less in May than I did in April but this was planned. Since my kids will be home with me this summer, I decided to take on less part-time work so I could spend more time with them but still continuing my full-time job as usual. Now I just wake up earlier to complete my tasks!
If you are new to my income reports, read below to learn more about blogging income reports and why I am so willing to share how much I make.
What is an income report?
I am going to use me as an example. My income report is where I break down how much money I made for the month through whatever streams of income I get such as ads, sponsored posts, affiliate marketing, passive income, etc.
Why am I writing an income report?
I am writing an income report to show you that earning money can be possible through different social media avenues. Back in 2018, I stumbled across a blog that talked about income reports and how much money they were making. My world changed that day. They were making 5k, 10k, 100k a month!
Yes, you can make 100k a month too but remember the most important thing. Pay attention to what you have to say to your followers!
What will their takeaway be after reading your blog? Does your Instagram content provide value? Do you have a good ROI for the brands you are working with?
Back in 2021, I quit my full-time job as a wedding planner to pursue content creation full time which has also led me to become a social media manager/expert where I help other Businesses, Brands, and Influencers with their social media through Picking Daisies Media and Peace of Mind Media.
For me, it has gotten to a point where I think income reports provide quality content and value to my readers so I wanted to share mine with you.
P.S. Are you thinking about starting a blog?
Starting a self-hosting blog is actually incredibly easy! I talk all about it in this mini course I wrote. The course is $15 and teaches you how to start a blog! Seriously, it’s been one of the best decisions of my life.
Keep in mind, these income reports won’t include my income from Picking Daisies Media or Peace of Mind Media but rather through part-time work like advertisements, sponsored posts, affiliate marketing, and passive income.

(The income I am reporting on has been earned and deposited into my bank account. Most of the money I made was made earlier in the year but took time to be deposited into the bank. A lot of the income I made in May will not be deposited into my bank account until 60-90 days later.)
