6 Bloggers who make 5 and 6 figures a month from their blogs
If you are not familiar with blogging, you probably assume that bloggers make a little income from their sites, but what you might not know is just how much income some bloggers are making. Many bloggers are making 5 figures each and every month, with some even making into the 6 figures. Some bloggers are making a LOT of money.
How do I know that some bloggers make THAT much money? Aside from being a blogger myself, some bloggers publish income reports sharing their monthly income and expenses with their readers. Since I don’t publish my own income reports, I have put together this list containing 8 of my favourite bloggers along with their latest published income reports.
These reports are fascinating to read, so if you want to know more I have included the link to bloggers most recent income report. Just a note before you start reading this list; not all bloggers include their expenses, so to make it easier to compare I have included the gross income from each report, or in other words the income before expenses have been taken out.
These 3 bloggers make an impressive 5 figures from their blogs every month.

The latest income report on The Busy Budgeter, who writes about family and personal finance, outlines an income of $32469.19 for the month of October. This was made up of income from sponsored posts, ad networks, affiliates and digital ebook sales. Check out the October income report here.
Just a girl and her blog – $40,124
Abby from Just a girl and her blog reported an income of $40124 for the month of November.

I have been following Pinch of Yum for a few years now, and their ebook ‘Tasty Food Photography‘ helped improve the photography of recipes I post on Bargain Mums massively. Their latest November income report shows a total monthly income of $93197.34. Check out the latest income report here.

Melyssa’s site is packed full with tips on blogging, entrepreneur tips and social media advice. She makes money from both e-course sales and affiliate income, and made $140779 in November.
