First full year summary: $2000 made online from 33 sources
Hi WA friends!
It's time to summarize 2019, as it was the first full year of running my blog.
I joined WA in May 2018, bought my domain MoCashForYou in June. Later on I opened an account on Pinterest and created a Facebook page.
My niche is about money - ways to save and make money online, financial apps etc. Just being in this niche pushed me to discover new apps and sites that make money.
In 2019, more than 30 sites and apps paid me, including WA, Adsense, affiliate portals, surveys, grocery scanning apps and more.
In total I made about $2,300 and spent about $320 (WA membership and domain). In addition, I've got hundreds of free items, from toys to kitchen gadgets, clothes and shoes (I wrote about it in my blog as well). I don't have time to check how much all this worth, but probably several thousands as well.
Out of this income, more than $1,200 can be classified as my blog income for sure.
Some sites I use pay me not only for my activity (receipt scanning, for example) but also for referrals, so it's not easy to distinguish.
The rest of the income could be earned without the blog, just by using my time online. It's something anyone can do.
Unfortunately I don't have too much time to spend on my blog, so my productivity was not high - only 19 posts in 2019 (LOL, just noticed the ironic similarity of the numbers).
The best money making posts are .... guess what?
All other stuff that I like to write about finance doesn't make money.
Looks I have to chose between writing profitable reviews or having more fun expressing my thoughts.
Hope for better 2020. Maybe 20 posts? :-)
Wishing all my WA friends an exciting year of learning and making money.
