Hey there! This is my December income report (a few months late), and if you’re wondering why it’s so late, you can hop over and read the explanation in my November income report.
Basically, I did absolutely nothing for my blog between November and February, so I’m just now catching up on the income reports I missed during that time. I want to make sure that I don’t just leave you hanging about how the blog did during those months, and I think it’s pretty interesting to see the kind of income you can bring in with a small blog by doing absolutely nothing.

At the end of December, I was blown away by how well the blog did revenue-wise. While I was over here finishing a class for my MA and enjoying the holidays, I made over $100! And I promise you that I didn’t even look at the blog once during the entire month.
So, without further ado, here’s my income report for December!
December 2019 Traffic
Pageviews: 7,492 (down from 8,591)
Email Subscribers: 576 (up from 518)
Here’s a look at my blog traffic for the month:
Pageviews were down in December, which was to be expected. Pinterest is my main source of traffic, and, after a month of not pinning any new pins, people weren’t seeing my content as much. But the fact that I still had over 7,000 views without pinning anything new definitely shows the power of older pins and their tendency to circulate much longer than just a few days or weeks.
December 2019 Income
Here’s the breakdown of my income for the month! As you can see, a little over half of the revenue came from one affiliate sale. While the rest was spread out between three different affiliate programs.
It is so important to have several different streams of affiliate income if you’re trying to make money through affiliate marketing. The different affiliate programs will each provide a small amount of income, but together they can add up to something significant.
December 2019 Expenses
My expenses for December reflect the new normal for my monthly expenses, with ConvertKit and GSuite being the only two things that I pay for on a monthly basis.
One Last Note
December was obviously a really great month for the blog, especially because I didn’t do any work to make over $100 in revenue. Once I get back into the swing of things with the blog, I hope to see a lot more months like this and better!
