Travelodium Monthly Results – Making Money from your Blog

Travelodium Travel Magazine

I’ve seen quite a few bloggers putting their financial results on their blog. I guess it is a self reporting technique to put the onus on yourself to do everything you can to improve the financial position of the blog.

I’ve had this blog for 11 years now and despite having a lot of Social Media followers I have really failed to monetize the blog over this time. i get the occasional sponsored post and have a relationship with SeedingUp but I don’t make many money from affiliate links.

I really wanted to go down a different path but I can see it is the quickest and most realistic path to making money from your blog.

I’ve had a few different platforms over the years on the blog and I don’t rank very well due to the website code being a bit all over the place.

However I do have a decent amount of followers and backlinks that give me a readership.

Here is my start point
