If you ask me what I’m passionate about, I’d quickly respond with “Helping people with their personal finances.” And it all started with this simple blog back in 2010.
I absolutely love blogging. Each and every post I write has an impact on somebody.
It might help them realize that they need to:
get started on their retirement fund, protect themselves with life insurance, or even to love their money a little bit less, and their spouse a bit more.
The fact that I can earn money from blogging is simply icing on the cake. AND, I recently discovered that if I want to earn an unlimited income with my blog, all I have to do is focus on helping my readers with everything I do, and everything I recommend. EVERYTHING. With this approach I’ll earn my readers’ loyalty and trust, and with that trust, they’ll actually take action on . . . → Read More: My February 2017 Blog Income Report
I fricken love blogging. I get to help people with their personal finance challenges every day AND I actually get paid to do it. Some months are better than others, but every time I report my earnings I feel like I’m figuring out how to better help all of you, and in turn make more money.
It really is amazing how life works. The more of a blessing you are to others, the more likely it is that you’ll be blessed. This blog is no different. The more people I’m willing to help and inspire, the more likely it is that they’ll tell their friends, which means my visitor numbers shoot through the roof. With a crazy number of visitors, the more likely it is that this blog makes money. It’s pretty simple stuff really.

I started this blog over six years ago, and it’s been a great money maker from the very beginning. I’ve had a ton fun writing for all my readers while getting paid for it, and now I feel like it’s time to teach others how to do it as well!
I’ve always been told that one of the best ways to teach is with real-world experiences. So I figured, “Why not show my readers how this blog earns money? That way, they could figure out how to earn money with their blogs as well!”

Your boss drives a Porsche. Your brother-in-law owns a beautiful cottage on a lake. And your Great Aunt Suzy seems to travel to a new country every week. Is everyone really that much more wealthy than you? Or are you the only wise one that isn’t spending well beyond your means?
Net Worth and Income – How Do You Rank?
No matter how little we might care about material things, we all (from time to time) still wonder how we compare to our friends financially. Unfortunately, it’s considered “uncouth” or “rude” to simply ask someone how much they earn a year or how wealthy they are in terms of their net worth.
The purpose of this post is to quench your thirst for nosiness, and also so you won’t just blurt out, “Are you rich or are you in debt up to your eyeballs?” What is your net worth and . . . → Read More: Net Worth and Income – How Do You Rank?
Have you ever wondered if this site makes any money? And if it does, how much passive income does it bring in each month? For most of my online sites in the past, I have been more interested in quick money each month instead of setting up a passive income. Well no more! It’s time for me to create a consistent income each month, and in order to hold myself accountable, I’ve decided to share my financial information with you, my loyal reader. So let’s find out how much I’m earning and through what avenues!
Google AdSense Income
Ever since this site began, I have been using Google AdSense to earn a little money on the side. The first couple months produced almost no money, but I have consistently been updating and altering the structure of the site to make it more conducive to earnings.

Have you ever wondered if this site makes any money? And if it does, how much does it bring in each month? It has been quite a long time since I have done an income report, but it is a goal of mine to make this site more passive, so I thought it would be a good idea to be transparent about the passive income earnings that are made on this site. Hopefully, since this is a new focus of mine, it will continue to grow and make these reports a little more interesting!

As many of you know, I’ve been reporting my income for a little over a year now. When I started sharing my earnings with you, I was only making about $20 a month, but lately my earnings have been exceeding $3,000 each month! It’s been a crazy ride and I’m honestly not sure how I pulled it off, but I sure am glad that I took that first step and started blogging.
While I know that many of you have enjoyed my income reports, it’s time to shift the focus here at Life And My Finances. Rather than share every single dollar that flows into my account through my many sites, I’m going to share with you only the affiliate/passive income that is earned. I’m shifting my focus for a couple of reasons:
