My July Income Report ($1,312.75)

Welcome to my July blog income report, where I show you exactly how I made money with my blog last month.

Let’s have a look at this month’s update.

If you’re new to How To Live In The U.S., you may wonder why I would share my blog income in the form of reports.

Well, simply because when I started out as a blogger, I knew absolutely nothing about how to grow and successfully manage a blog.

Because of other wonderful bloggers sharing their experiences, advice and the way they created income with their blogs, I was able to figure out some important key parts to creating and growing a successful blog.

So, I decided to give back to the blogging community by sharing the way I run my blog and make money off of it, simply because I know how inspiring it can be to read over and over again how people are growing their blog.

It’s motivating, educational and can help you discover new ways you never thought of managing and growing your own own blog.

Even though I’ve decided not to publish an income report every month, it’s still an excellent way to track the progress I’ve made so far and really makes me reflect on how far I’ve come since the very beginning.

I’ve also included a special hosting discount link (only available through my link) which will not only give you a huge discount, but also a FREE domain).


Total revenue for July 2016: $1,312.75

In general, July was a great month!

Traffic was up, and while last summer is suppose to be a low season for bloggers, it seems like the blog is still going strong.

There's definitely been an increase in traffic, and I wouldn't be surprised to see a huge increase in traffic during the next few months as we've decided to up our posting schedule.

Instead of dropping 1 post per day, we're slowly upping our posting schedule to dropping multiple posts per day, with as goal dropping 3 posts per day by the end August.


Let’s have a look at all of the difference ways I made money with my blog this month.

Bluehost: $355.00

Bluehost has been a great source of income. For those of you who don’t know anything about blogging, Bluehost is a hosting company that you will initially have to sign up with in order to start blogging.

There are some other hosting companies out there, but after trying a handful of different ones I’ve decided Bluehost is the best choice for me.

The way I earn this income and receive commission from them is by referring people to their website incase they are interested in starting a blog.

As an affiliate partner, I have access to a special hosting deal I can offer you guys in case you are interested in starting a blog of your own, that you can only find through this link.

Not only that, but if you sign up using my link you’ll also receive your domain for FREE.

Mediavine: $957.75

I switched to MediaVine only a few months ago and am absolutely loving them.

I initially started out with Google’s Adsense, which honestly was a complete joke compared to the revenue I’m currently receiving from MediaVine.

Though, I have to mention that at the time I was using Adsense I had way less traffic than today, so before I judge their performance I would have to switch back to make a legitimate comparison, which I’m not going to do.

Regardless, I absolutely love the way MediaVine works. Their revenue user dashboard is amazing which allows you to manage everything. Their response team and customer service is extremely helpful and in general their just an amazing group of people doing an amazing job.

Couldn’t be more happy with them.

My MediaVine revenue is also increasing tremendously and I've decided to start focussing more on ad revenue rather than affiliate sales.

I don't consider myself to be much of a sales man as I feel like I'm tricking people into buying something with me really knowing if they're passionate about the product.

Regardless, everything I present I use myself and believe in 100%.

Though I've decided to full focus on increasing traffic, upping article quality and quantity and optimizing ad revenue positioning.


Blogging is absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Some days, weeks and months are less great than others, but in general I can say that my life has changed completely.

There is a general growth happening, and I know my blog will look and be completely different in 6 months then it is right now.

Looking back, I would’ve never guessed I would be at this point with my blog 6 months ago.

Heck, I would’ve never thought in October 2015 that I’d ever earn more than $1,000 with my blog.

But it happened. 

And I know I will hit $10,000 in monthly revenue with my blog very soon. It’s only a matter of time.

I can’t wait for that to happen, because more income means more money that I can use to reinvest in my blog.

Better design, better user experience and maybe even hire professional editors and writers to create better and more valuable articles.

Earning more money is always fun, but I can now honestly say that it’s the blog itself and the purpose that comes with it that keeps the excitement coming.

    1. Hi Patchesoft.

      To get around $1,000 per month income, I have to get around 150,000 monthly page views.

      Advertising money and rpm increases exponentially, so the more traffic you gain, you’ll receive way more money in advertising.

      There definitely is plateau, but I haven’t seen it yet! 🙂
