    Hey Deby,

    You said ad revenue isn’t looking as good this month as last time around, but I and many other successful IM’ers will tell you: there is no such thing as a perfect upward curve in income growth within this online game! There’s a good chance that you’ll experience a dip for October, but then November will be better than September was!

      I’m already blown away every month. I just can’t believe how successful it is, although in fairness, I do work very hard. I still keep expecting it all to come crashing down. I’m confident that the traffic increase will result in new long-term followers and hopefully I’ll earn their trust and turn them into paying customers down the line.

    Wow!!! This is super super inspiring!! I just started a blog on personal finance and reading this income report is extremely motivating!! While I’m not looking to make money right away (I know I won’t, haha), I do hope to monetize my blog within six months so I’m learning anything and everything I can while it’s new!! Thanks for sharing these details!!! I will be back 🙂

    How soon can one sign up for shareasale? I did complete the application even though I am very, very new. I have not heard anything yet but it really has not been very long. Do they require a certain number of pageviews before they accept the application?

    I appreciate you sharing this information each month. I do get inspired.

    Thank you.

      I hear they like to see you have been active for at least 3 months, 6 months is better. You need to show a certain amount of posts and that you are writing regularly and have good layout and content. If you do get turned down, you can always appeal. Write and tell them you are serious about working with them, what your plans are for your site and the future and get them to reconsider. It’s worked for others.

    So inspiring again!

    I have made a little money with Izea each month- but it limits me to 3 applications with the membership I have- do you pay to have the higher level of their service?

    Thanks:)

    Hi Deby. I have been following this blog for awhile (over a year), and I am wondering if you’d ever consider showing your stats for each blog separately to give us a better idea of what one blog can do since most of us only have one blog? Also, when you show your traffic, do you mean “sessions” or “page views”? I really appreciate you writing all your different income sources as it gives me a better idea of what to pursue or not. We just got accepted to BlogHer so we are excited about that. Thanks for sharing!

      For my traffic, I mean page views. For splitting the rest, I could certainly split the traffic, but the earnings would take me a lot more time to work out where each item came from as sometimes earnings can come from both or either site. In general, 90% of earnings and traffic are attributable to the sewing site and only about 10% to the MMM site.

    Hey Deby,

    I can see a steady increase in your income reports since you started documenting them.

    Congrats.

    I love reading and writing income reports.

    Take care and have a nice day ahead.
