Small Blog, Big Profit

I’m always very interested in how much money bloggers make, to the point of being nosy, for sure. While other industries have basic standards for pay, blogging is all over the place. In general, the more people you have visiting and reading your blog, the more money you can make. However, some bloggers get massive amounts of traffic but don’t monetize and therefore aren’t making money from their blogs. And some smaller blogs are able to pull in a sizeable income.

Blogging revenue can range from a full-time income to none at all. Some factors include your priorities (do you blog to make money, or is it a nice bonus?), the amount of time you have to spend on blogging, and, to a certain extent, luck!

I always find it helpful and interesting when other bloggers share how they are making their money. It’s a great way for me to compare my own stats and learn new methods of monetization.

2014 was a fortunate year for me, and I decided to share my 2014 income report on my blog about blogging, Shaping Up Your Blog. Click below to read the full post and see all of my stats.

I hope the post will help newer bloggers who are just beginning to monetize and are looking for information on how to make money off blog posts and projects. I think seasoned bloggers might learn something, too!

Marathon Training Week 14: Let The Taper Begin!


Let the taper begin! The long runs are over (well, except for the long, long run!), and mileage now starts to decrease for the remainder of my marathon training. Week 14 is sneaky. You are all excited for the taper, but then you realize that the short and medium runs are the same as last […]

Our Family’s Favorites on Netflix #StreamTeam


It’s time again to share what we are watching on Netflix this month, and I thought I’d share what we are all enjoying, from Mom and Dad down to the baby! That’s his “watching Elmo” face. One thing I love about Netflix is the variety and sheer volume of selections. You can watch all day and […]

Marathon Training Week 13: Last Long Run


It’s week 13 of marathon training, and this is the last of the high mileage weeks! In fact, this week is a copy of week 12: 5 miles, 8 miles, 5 miles, and 18 miles! I was nervous about this week’s long run because I already did 18, and I wouldn’t have the mental boost of […]

Get a Whiter Smile with Smile Brilliant


The new year is here, and everywhere I turn people are talking about their goals for 2015- what they want to do, or see, or be. One goal that I’ve always had is to have really white teeth. Don’t we all have that friend with the incredible smile that makes you wonder why yours doesn’t […]

Marathon Training Week 12: Only Crazy People Run This Far

15 in 2015


Can I confess something? I’m not ready for 2015. I’m excited for the new year, and I can’t wait to see what it brings, but I’m not ready. 2014 was supposed to be my year of preparation. Of getting myself together so that 2015 could be my year to take action. But I took on […]

Wrapping Up 2014


It’s time for a new year, but not before we say goodbye to the old one! 2014 was the year for traveling and parties! No new babies, no new jobs, no moves. But we took big trips, celebrated birthdays, and enjoyed time together as a family. Here are some of the highlights from 2014: In February, […]

Marathon Training Week 11: A Low Point


Here we are in week 11 of my Marathon Training Plan For Beginners program. I’ve run over 200 miles in training so far, and I’m getting excited (yes, excited!) for the big race! Nothing like finishing 16 miles and telling yourself, just 10 more to go! This week was a low point for me. I […]
