Income reports have become very popular 'reads' over the last few years.
They provide inspiration, motivation, belief, confidence & often help answer the many early-stage questions that most online entrepreneur's, blogger's & startups have.
Below is a collection of income reports published by blogger's and entrepreneur's who believe in transparency and this is my tribute to them.
The income reports here are classed (by myself) as tier 1 income reports. That's simply because the blogger's who published these reports not only include the income they make from various sources, but they also include their expenses too.
By doing this I believe readers get a better idea of what is involved in running a successful blog.
It also allows us to see the actual profit each blogger is making, giving us a truer reflection of overall earnings.
The layout below is simple. Just click on each 'board' to reveal further details including a link to the actual blog, should you wish to investigate further.
The following section is a list of blogs that publish income reports that detail the income they make. However, I have classified them as tier 2 reports as they do not provide their expense figures.
I plan to update this post and maybe do it on a monthly basis. I think it would be great if the blogger's in this section would consider publishing their expenses too.
Oh and if you do decide to do that, you WILL be 'promoted' and placed in the tier 1 reports section! (a great way to earn yourselves a link too by the way!)
So there you have it. This is my take (and tribute) to real blogger's who make real money online via their blogs and websites.
I have wanted to publish something like this for the longest time and once I saw what Gael Breton from AuthorityHacker.com did with his analysis of 23 blogger's and their income, I just knew that I had to get this put together and out there.
I hope this post inspires you and gives belief to all those who keep wondering "is it really possible to make money blogging?"
I hope it motivates all those who are just starting out on their blogging journey as well as those of you who just need a mental kick up the 'brain side'!
Most of all I want this post to be a testament to what can be achieved if you work hard and stay on the path to your dreams.
If you ever feel like giving up - come back to this post and have a look around again.
Let it rekindle your enthusiasm and pull you back on course.
Those who never give up will be sure to succeed!
I would really love to make this post a regular thing. Maybe updating it every month or publishing a new post every month.
To do this I would really need blogger's who publish income reports to do so by a set date - say latest 20th of each month.
That would then allow me to compile, create and publish these roundups earlier so that they reflect the previous months figures.
I do however understand that each blogger has his/her own publishing schedule, deadlines and issues so this may not be possible.
Either way I'd love to get some feedback about this from you guys, so leave a comment below. I will respond to each and every one!
As you may have noticed I am linking out to all the sites featured in Tier 1.
I admire the work they put into revealing their incomes and expenses online and as I result I thought it appropriate to link out them with a "dofollow" link.
For all those blogger's who appear in Tier 2, I'd like to offer you the chance to also get a free "dofollow" link to you sites too. Just click the button below for instructions.
Now I'd love to hear from you.
What do you think of this roundup?
Would you like to be included my next income roundup?
Have I missed someone who deserves to be included?
Either way, leave a comment below right now and let me know.
