How I made $152.06 in December 2017
Since I have started this blog back in March 2016, I haven’t made an income yet. Mostly because I wasn’t focusing on my website full-time, and sometimes not even part-time. I am a wife and mother to 5 children and I am super busy all of the time. I used to work a full-time desk job at an employer and with my children’s school schedule and them having so many field trips and days off and this new early release day, I found it only logical to switch to something I could do from home where I could make my own hours and set my own schedule. One thing I do remember is enjoying reading other bloggers income & traffic reports, and I’m so glad I get to do this myself now.
As a blogger, I feel like December goals are high because everyone is shopping for gifts. You want to reach your audience and share with them the best deals. That’s exactly what I did last month. I finally bought myself a pair of new shoes. I don’t often get myself new things because I have 5 kids and they are growing like weeds and always need something, that doesn’t leave much time or money left for myself, but this pair of new shoes was very important, I needed them really bad. I actually found out about them from Ashley over at Little Lovelies Blog she had them on her Insta stories. Thank you Ashley!
Anyway, back to the Income Report for December. This is my first Income Report and although it’s not much, it’s still something and now I actually have set goals to exceed the previous month’s earnings. So, the goal for January is to make over $152.06
I joined the Gymboree, Crazy 8 and Janie & Jack Affiliate Program since I have 5 kids and my youngest just loves the style of those brands. I’m so thankful to get to work with them and they had some amazing sales going on before Christmas. I make an 8% commission and had one sale within the first couple days of being accepted into their affiliate program. I was very happy!

I still have a lot to learn and a long way to go, but earning just $152.06 this month has given me motivation and determination to keep going, keep doing what I’m doing and share with others how you can do it too! I would love for ya’ll to go on this journey with me and if you have any questions just comment and let me know, or if you have any tips or suggestions I would love to hear it!
