February 2019 Blogress Report Month to Month Analysis

Income Statement

Income Statement -February 2019 Blogress Report

Total Revenue: $672.95. Highest revenue month so far! This is mainly due to the little bit of freelance blog-related work that I picked up since I’m “jobless” now. The goal is to keep this income train chugging, but I’m not sure how much free time I’ll have during the Financial Freedom book tour.

Affiliates

FlexOffers: $200. FlexOffers is an affiliate program aggregator. If you own a website or blog, I highly recommend checking them out. I use their platform to promote products or services that I truly believe in. One example is Personal Capital.

Personal Capital is a FREE online tool to help track your spending and net worth. If you’re not already using this awesome software, click here to get started!


Siteground$50. This is the best domain hosting company I have done business with. I typically buy my domains through Namecheap and then host them on SiteGround. The process is simple and SiteGround provides great website speed and customer support. They offer hosting packages from as low as $3.95 per month.

If you’re unsure about how to set up your website, check out this step-by-step guide to building your online business.


Amazon$2.95. Although the payouts aren’t too substantial, every penny counts! This month I started using the Amazon Affiliates program and two items were bought using my links. Actually, even if you just click on my Amazon Affiliate link and do your normal shopping, I’ll earn a small commission at no extra cost to you. If you’re feeling generous I’d really appreciate it 🙂


Freelancing

Blog Posts: $400. Since I quit my corporate job I have a lot more free time to mess around in the freelance/gig economy. I thought it was appropriate to put this revenue in the Blogress Report because it was only possible due to the work I’ve already done on Fly to FI. Feel free to hit me up for a freelance article!


Other

Airbnb Credit: $20. In my How to Travel the World with Free Accommodation post, I detailed how to unlock the synergies between Airbnb and credit card rewards.

I included my Airbnb referral link and someone used it to sign up and book a trip. If you use my referral link to sign up for Airbnb you receive $40 in free travel credit. Thanks for the support and enjoy your travels!


Expenses

Total Expenses: $0. This may seem awesome, but I’m kind of disappointed in myself for not running some Facebook Ads this month. It’s just been so incredibly busy! … more on that later.


Net Income

$672.95


February 2019 – Life, Media, and Blog Strategy Updates

February was my first full month of corporate joblessness… it felt great! I had so much time to work on my entrepreneurial ventures and finally take a step back to breathe.

HUGE Site Revamp

As you might have noticed, I completely revamped the website and updated the Fly to FI branding. I’ve also been going back through old posts and optimizing my pictures and SEO for increased page speed and Google rankings. Feel free to play around on the new site and tell me what you think. I added pages like Start Here, Best Of, Press and updated my About Page and Resources Page.

It took me quite a long time to get everything done, but I really like how the site looks now. I’m sure I’ll have even more improvements to share with you next month!

Financial Freedom Book Tour

If you’ve been following my story, you know that I will be joining Grant Sabatier on the Financial Freedom Book Tour around the country. February was my last month before hitting the road so I had to take care of things back home like our rental property, my taxes, and a bunch of other little household tasks.

We’re going to be hitting 40+ cities on this tour so make sure you check out the tour page and attend an event in a city near you! The page is constantly being updated with new events so check back often.

  1. Cody, congrats on your successful exit from the corporate world and Blog revenue milestone!

    Do you have details on the book tour coming through Austin, TX? I see that y’all will be here on 3/21, but there are no time or location details.

    • Hey there and thank you for the support!

      We are still trying to finalize our Austin visit. Our original venue fell through but we should have something on the calendar within the week.

      Thanks for checking in!
