Trevor here, swinging by to present our June 2016 Income Report.

Okay, on with the income report!
If you haven’t read one of our income reports before, you may be scratching your head. This is where we open up and show people how the business side of blogging looks and that it’s possible to make an income doing something you love and working on your own terms. As always, the food will return shortly. If the idea of sharing income and learning how to make a living online isn’t interesting to you, I suggest making this Lemon Lava Cake, a new recipe will be coming Monday!
Here’s a brief introduction to these traffic and income reports…
If you’ve stopped by our about us page, you know that Jennifer and I started this blog a year and a half ago with the hopes of it earning an income for Jennifer. I’ve since quit my job and we’re taking a calculated risk that we can make this blog both of our full-time jobs.
Without income reports like this, we never would have known it was even possible to take that leap. Our hope is that, for those interested, these reports can help to show what worked for us, the mistakes we made and that it is possible to make an income online doing something that you love if you work hard and stick with it.
None of these reports on their own tell the story of how to create, grow and monetize a blog. Think of each one as a chapter in a book that continues to be written. To get the full picture, I suggest looking at our traffic and income reports page where you can click into individual reports, like this one, to see the slow steady growth from our first month a year and a half ago where we made $28.

I’m keeping things short this month, because… well… July (when this report is typically written) was crazy busy with officially launching The Blog Village, and weddings and just an all around jam-packed month. Head on over to the July 2016 income report where I’ll be getting back on track and going into much more detail about what’s been going on and some fun new announcements!* This post contains affiliate links, thank you for the support in keeping SMTY up and running!
