These income reports seem to be very popular amongst finance bloggers and help keep them accountable to the readers as well as making them sit down once a month and take a look at what is working and what isn’t in their plans.
I have a full time job that takes care of most of my bills and doesn’t have much to do with this blog. As such I’m only mentioning extra income here as the blog is mostly focused at helping me and you build extra and passive income so that eventually its enough to not need the full time job.
Help to buy Isa – £5.33 interest (I’m not counting the 25% added by the government as this doesn’t happen until I use this for a deposit)
Zopa – £3.83
Matched Betting – £132.09
Total = £141.25
Plans for next month
As the blog is fairly new I’ll still be testing new methods and techniques out. One thing that is missing from this income report is a mention the money i’ve saved by following frugal tips and not splurging on luxuries, It seems wrong adding it to an income report as it doesn’t add money to my accounts, it just prevents existing money from leaving it.
I’ll keep an eye out on how other bloggers report this “saved” income and hopefully this time next month have a better income report with some fancy infographics.
The matched betting will hopefully grow as I get more involved in it. Expect to see a full blog post about it in the near future and hopefully more money earned from it next month as my funds grow to enable me to take advantage of more offers at one time.
