Recently, a user on Reddit recommended that I post a monthly income report so as to increase my credibility, which I feel is a great idea; it also gives me a chance to review my goals and objectives for success.
In total, I have earned 3,076.92 USD this month, with almost all of my income coming from projects. ~$10 came from passive income; I’m looking to promote my designs as a brand, so hopefully I’ll have more success next month. Furthermore, I didn’t get as much work as I would have liked, probably because it’s tax season.
However, it did give me time to complete and publish my eBook. In addition, I’m starting to see my efforts for this blog pay off: I went from around 1,000 visitors per month to 3,590 this month, which translates to $0.10 a day in AdSense revenue. It might not seem like much, but that’s a 10-fold increase when I was getting nothing on most days.
As a sidenote, I have recently purchased Clip Studio Paint, and am currently working to improve my illustration skills. I feel that being both a graphic designer and illustrator will provide me with much more opportunities, while allowing me to push my creativity to further limits.
And that’s it from me, see you next month!
