April 2018 Blog Income Report – How I Made $3,314.96!!

Tweet…tweet tweet tweet… The birds outside are announcing yet another beautiful day. You slowly peel open your eyes and begin to smirk because your amazing life from yesterday will continue yet again today. You have no credit card debt, no student loan debt, no car debt, and you know what? No house debt either. You’re totally debt free.

Beyond this, you now own a rental property free and clear, you earn a solid income at your day job, AND you earn over $3,000 a month with your side hustle!! In a year or less, you’ll be buying a 4 bedroom, 2 bath house on 15 acres in one of the most desired areas around (oh, and you’ll pay cash for it too!!).

This amazing situation described above…it’s actually my life, and it’s a good one.

Why You Might Want to Start a Blog (and How to Do It!)

Want to know why I publish these income reports? Because I wouldn’t be where I am today without the extra income from this blog. And if you’re interested in starting your own blog, I want to do everything possible to coax you in that direction. Why? Because it’s going to change your life .

Over the last 7 years, I’ve earned well over $100,000 from this blog alone. And today, I’m on pace to earn more than $25,000 a year just from writing a few silly words on a page each week.

You can do it too.

How I Earned $3,314.96 With My Blog

In the month of April, I earned over three grand with this blog. I’m still shaking my head a little in disbelief to be honest with you, but it’s totally real! Here’s the breakdown.

Mediavine – $823.58 – Since my blog has grown in popularity and I get 30,000+ visitors a month (Mediavine requires 25,000 sessions for you to apply), I was able to sign up with this top-notch advertising company — Mediavine. My typical $150 in clickable advertising each month has now jumped to $800+ thanks to this move!

Affiliate Income

iPage Blog Hosting – $0 – Apparently no one wanted to start earning money with their own blog last month. That’s a shame. Change this trend and sign up today!

Weathsimple Investing – $133.00 – Three people started investing with Wealthsimple this past month. They earned their free $50 for investing and they’re setting themselves up for great wealth in the future!

Bill Cutterz – $3.38 – Someone saved money on their bills! Use Bill Cutterz and you could too.

Personal Capital Money Manager – $0 – Sadly, no sign-ups for this awesome free tool this past month.

Ethos Term Life Insurance – $50 – Another wise individual signed up for life insurance. Great job protecting your family!!

Writing Income

I started writing for some prominent blogs a couple months ago. It’s been going really well and it’s been an awesome money-maker. (If you’re skilled at writing, you could definitely do this too!). In April, I earned $1,350. Love it.

Direct Ads

As usual, companies always email me, wanting me to feature them on my site. Most times I don’t, sometimes I do (only if it helps you, my faithful readers). Last month, I accepted 5 posts and earned $955.

Do You Want to Get Started Yet?

Some people hate writing and don’t want to earn any extra money. That’s fine, then blogging isn’t for them.

BUT, if you like to write and are passionate about a particular topic, then I would highly recommend starting a blog. It’s super cheap and as you can tell, there’s definitely money to be made. Just click this link to get started, or click the link beneath the video below.

Best of luck to all of you! Until next time!!

Income Reports


My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.


  1. Great progress – congratulations.

    The accelerated growth / returns you’re seeing is impressive.

    Thanks for continuing to share your useful content. – Mike

    • You’re welcome! Once I get this project house done, I hope to ramp up another revenue source. This could be 4-6 months away though. In the meantime, I hope this nice bump up in income continues!! 🙂

  2. Derek going HAM!

    • HAM? I assume that’s a good thing?! 😉

  3. Congrats Derek! You’ve been killing it lately and look forward to tracking the progress as you keep pushing it further.

    Is the Wealthsimple affiliation a direct relationship to source that? I’ve tried to find it on their website previously but didn’t have any luck. Maybe it’s because I am in Canada?

    Happy Friday! Have a great weekend.


    • Hi Scott – they reached out to me, so I’m honestly not sure. I can connect you with them if you want. They actually originated in Canada, so I know you’re safe there!

    • Yeah, it’s been pretty awesome! I need to keep building my traffic and that number should keep going up!

  4. Great job Derek! You did great this month, can’t wait to see how June unfolds.

    • Thanks! We’ll see. Nothing too special yet, but with my additional writing lately, it definitely helps boost the total!

  5. Derek, we’re so glad you’ve joined the Mediavine family! We’re looking forward to being a part of your journey from here on out! If you ever have questions, we’re here at to work with you on anything from SEO to optimization.
    Thanks for mentioning us in a great post!
