Welcome to Another Mommy Blogger’s tenth blog income and traffic report!
We’ve entered the fourth quarter. People are online and shopping for the holidays which means RPMs and affiliate sales are up!
I have my hands full with a four year old and a two month old baby at home so I haven’t worked much again this month. I’m working less than I ever had but making more money than I’ve ever made.
You’ve got to love blogging.
If you’ve ever thought about starting a blog, stop thinking and just do it. I’ve written a short guide to get you started HERE.
If you need more convincing, read my story below. If you’ve read it before feel free to scroll down to this months numbers.
Why Am I Sharing My Blog Income & Traffic Report?
It seems a little weird doesn’t it? Posting my mom blog income report for the whole world to see?
Trust me, the reason is not so I can brag about how much money I make. This is far from brag worthy money and I only plan on publishing my income reports for a year.
So why in the world am I sharing this incredibly personal information with you today? For one very important reason:
I 100% would not have started my mom blog and be on this road to financial freedom if it wasn’t for other bloggers sharing their income reports.
It just wouldn’t have happened. I mean let’s get real, the idea that you can make money online from home sounds like a pipe dream.
You’ve got to be someone special or one in a million to pull that off right?
But I kept reading these mom blog income reports. One after another seriously I couldn’t get enough of them. All these stories of ordinary moms making money blogging from home and I was hooked.
Why I Started My Mom Blog?
I started Another Mommy Blogger in February 2018 because I desperately wanted to be a stay at home mom. Unfortunately, living on one income with a family is not an easy thing to do.
At the time I was incredibly fortunate to have a job working part time as a nanny and was able to bring my daughter with me.
I loved being a nanny but if I’m being honest cooking, cleaning, and splitting your time with someone else’s kids starts to wear on your heart when you wish you were giving all your attention to your own household.
So I started my mom blog. After a lot of hard work and prayer I’m making enough money to stay home with my daughters. Things aren’t perfect and I still have a long way to go but this is a dream come true.
Who Can Make Money Blogging?
I’m writing this mom blog income report because I want to get through to some moms today. I want to reach out to any moms who hate leaving their kids for that 9 to 5 just to end up giving a large portion of the money they make to pay for daycare.
I don’t make money blogging because I’m special or because I’m some tech wizard. The truth is I’m not either of those things. Far from it actually.
I’m a college drop out. I didn’t have any money. My husband and I were living out of one bedroom with our baby at his parents house when I started this blog.
Along the way my computer died and to this day I’ve been running this blog from an iPad praying it lasts long enough until I can afford a new computer.
I didn’t have the funds to take Elite Blogging Academy or to pay for any other blogging books or courses. I have literally not taken a single course or paid for any information to help me blog.
The only reason my blog is successful and makes money is because I have given this my all and I never gave up.
I’m telling you my story because I am the definition of an “ordinary mom”. I share about my journey through motherhood and tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way. All from the comfort of my own home and. IT. MAKES. ME. MONEY.
If I can do this, then anyone who is willing to put in the work can do this.
If you want to make money blogging its time to push aside the doubt and the excuses. If you believe in yourself, if you want this enough and you put in the work I guarantee you can build a profitable blog too.

Blog Income & Traffic Report: October 2020
Amazon Associates: 120.68
Total Income: 3535.95
Thats an increase of $274.53 compared to last month. I’m very happy with this month considering I’m only working an hour or two a day.
imark Interactive: 27.00
Canva Pro: 12.95
Total Expenses: 74.90
Thats a decrease of 10,228 compared to last month. It’s my fourth straight month in a row with a dip in traffic, but that’s what I get for only posting 3 times a month instead of my usual 6-8.
I’m nervous but I’m hopeful that with winter coming people will be inside more and spending more time online and we’ll start to see traffic come back up on its own. We’ll see.
RPM means revenue per 1000 pageviews. So for every 1000 views I got this month I made $17.16. That’s an increase of $2.08 compared to last month.
Email Subscribers: 34
Increase of two compared to last month. I know I’m missing out by not putting any effort into an email list. I really had plans to focus on this this year but I was pregnant, had a baby, and hello it was 2020 so hey maybe next year.
Social Media Followers:
Up 1 from last month.
Up 177 from last month.
Plans For November:
Honestly my plans for November are just to survive. I try to work a little in the morning and a little before bed but I’m not getting much done.
My oldest still isn’t in school but they’re talking about opening this month🤞The baby sleeps a lot so if Alexa could be in school three days a week I could work when Hailee is sleeping and we’d be golden.
When life FINALLY goes back to normal I plan on creating free printables to grow my email list, investing in an SEO course to learn how to get that organic traffic, and call me crazy but I want to start another blog! Big goals that will most likely have to wait until 2021.
Until then I’m coasting. Enjoying my family and the holiday season 😊
