Conversion AI: $28.68 (I dropped it for part of the month)

Bluehost: $17.99

When I first started the site, I got the domain and hosting from Bluehost. I still have my domain with them so this is paying for the domain renewal. I recommend starting out with Bluehost for your domain and hosting if you’re just getting started! The price is very reasonable and it’s easy to get started.

Total expenses: $238.81 ($337.42)

Net blog income: $1002.76 ($866.46)

Thoughts about this month’s income report:

I’m reasonably happy with this month’s income report aside from the low number of product sales. However, I was not focusing on this area during this month.
