Income Report – October 2017

This is a series of reports that I will post each and every month summarising my progress. I’ll first mention the major events that may have happened within the month that could have made a difference in my earnings. I will also break down the sources of my income so that I can keep track of how each one is doing. Lastly, I’ll conclude with the most important things that I learned and what I have planned for the near future. I’d love to respond to any questions or comments that you may have. Thanks!

Important Goings On In October

Here are the import goings on this month:

No Laptop

I didn’t manage to get a lot of work done this week as my Macbook died and then I tried to order a new one from Amazon and it got lost (somehow) on it’s way to be delivered. So I wasn’t able to get much work done for 2 weeks this month but I still did OK income wise.

How Do I Make My Money Online?

The majority of the money I make online comes from Kindle Publishing. Some income also comes from Createspace, ACX and a small amount comes from selling print on demand T-shirts on sites like Merch By Amazon, Redbubble and Teespring. Plus some small affiliate earnings.
