    Good post girly. I’m a fellow EBAer so I’m right there with ya. I’m still hoping to make my first affiliate income soon. Maybe we can guest post on each other’s blog? Would be fun. Check out my blog and let me know if you want to collaborate! I’m excited to follow your journey!

    Thanks for sharing this. I’ve been blogging for over a year and need to break into affiliate marketing. It’s helpful to see how others do it.

      Thank you, Anna! That is one of my reasons for writing my income reports. I have had so much inspiration by reading income reports from other bloggers. Having affiliates are really great because people want to know what products you use and love.

    Thank you, Stephanie. As a new blogger I appreciate all of the direct links to what you are doing as I am still constantly learning. The start up cost are a bit daunting, but I have to always remember with any business, there are costs upfront if you expect growth.

      Hi, April, thanks for visiting! As for the blog expenses, I don’t think I would have spent that much if I was on my own. My husband is a business man and he was the one to encourage me to get the blogging tools and courses. He helped me to research each tools and course I chose so that I got only the best. I have since seen my blog as a business and am more encouraged to take my blogging courses more seriously, so in the end, it has been a win-win all around.

    Thank you for being honest about your start up costs. I get frustrated when I read income reports that dismiss certain expenses because they paid for them in advance.

    It makes new bloggers feel like they are over spending when they are starting and they read those other types of income reports. We need to know that there are expenses upfront before they can start making that kind of money.

    All businesses have start up costs and an online business is no different. Sure you can start a blog for under $100 but it’s going to take a lot more dollars to get it up and running to a level that will produce income.

    Thanks again for this post I enjoyed it and pinned it.
