Welcome back to my monthly traffic and income report series! My goal from the beginning of this blog was to learn how to make an income from it.
Each month I’m sharing with you my successes, failures, and things that I’m learning along the way. I’ve revamped my reports to add more value to my readers and any bloggers who read along. Let me know in the comments what you would like to see in these reports!
If you’re here for the food and wondering why I’m not talking recipes, you can stop reading here and go check out the Best Vegan Apple Crisp you’ll ever eat!
As a reminder, I count income earned in the month, not income received (as sometimes I do not receive payment for 1-3 months, depending on the company/project.
- MediaVine: $420.24

Total July Income: $420.24

July’s RPM went down from June, but I expected this. With my due date of August 6th, I decided not to take on any sponsored posts in the month of July, just in case I went into labor early.
