I always see bloggers sharing their Monthly Blog Income Reports. To be honest, my newsfeed is flooded with these posts. I use to read every single one before I started blogging. It was so inspiring to see bloggers were killing it and making money blogging.
Once I started blogging, I was able to read Blog Income Reports from a different perspective. I was able to understand the hidden reasons to why bloggers were publishing their income reports. And for some reason, bloggers don’t want to admit the real reasons on why they publish Blog Income Reports.
Keep on reading if you want a whole new perspective to the Blog Income Reports that are flooding our newsfeeds.
Why do Bloggers Share This Personal Information?
Many bloggers will say that they are not trying to brag about the money they make. Instead they say they publish blog income reports to encourage others.
Maybe they are trying to encourage others. But think about it, if they really want to encourage others than why are they posting a blog income report every month for 1, 2, 3 or more YEARS?
Clearly there must be other reasons why bloggers continuously publish their Blog Income Reports every month. If you really want to encourage new bloggers, you shouldn’t have to publish so many Blog Income Reports.
Bloggers can deny the reasons I outline below but it’s not hard to figure out that what I am about to tell you is the hidden reasons why bloggers publish income reports.
Three Reasons Why Bloggers Publish Blog Income Reports
Reason 1 – Building Trust
Bloggers are sharing their Monthly Blog Income Reports so they can build trust with their readers.
If a successful blogger shows others how much money they made and how they made it blogging, it gives the successful blogger credibility. Their readers will trust that their methods work. Their readers will then try to copy the same steps the successful blogger used to make money so they can make money blogging too.
To be a successful blogger, you should want to build a trusting relationship with your readers. By sharing your income, your readers will see it as trust factor. Your readers will want to follow you so they can read your future posts too. If you recommend companies and products, your readers will check them out because they already have trust in you because your methods work.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with building trust and a connection with your audience. Every blogger who wants to be successful should focus on building a connection with their readers.
There are many different ways a blogger can build trust. Some bloggers like to post Blog Income Reports to build trust with their readers.
Reason 2 – Traffic
People love to read Blog Income Reports. They get shared around so much that my newsfeed is FLOODED with Blog Income Reports from various different bloggers.
Before I started to blog, I read every blog income report I came across. I was fascinated with the fact people were earning money from blogging. I used to repin them on Pinterest all the time.
Blog Income Reports are a great way to gain more traffic to your blog.
People are drawn to numbers. When you are sharing that you are making X Amount from blogging, people will click on your link. They will probably share your blog post too.
Bloggers will share their income reports every month so they can keep the momentum going and increase the traffic to their blogs.
Reason 3 – Generate More Money
If a successful blogger shows their readers how much money they made and how they made it by blogging, their readers will have the tendency to copy the same steps. Their readers will want to achieve the same success too.
Bloggers list affiliate links throughout their Blog Income Reports to drive more sales. This way, their readers can easily click on the links to learn more about the companies or products the successful blogger uses to earn money. The successful blogger will then earn money from the referral.
There is nothing wrong with using affiliate links to boost your sales. If you love a company, you should want to promote them and tell others about them. That’s the greatest thing about affiliate marketing. You can promote the companies you use and love and earn money when you refer others to the company.
Bloggers continuously post blog income reports because it helps to increase their sales and generate more money.
There are many reasons why bloggers publish their blog income reports. There are also many reasons bloggers don’t publish Blog Income Reports.
I personally don’t publish my Blog Income Reports. I have mentioned in some of my blog posts the amount I have earned here and there, but I don’t write blog income reports. This doesn’t mean I am not successful. Blog income should never determine if a blogger is successful or not.
Every blogger has the right to publish their own blog income reports if they’d like. I have noticed new bloggers who are posting blog income reports will post one every month in the beginning to keep them accountable. I still love reading new bloggers income reports.
I stopped reading the Blog Income Reports by bloggers who are making 5 or 6 figures a month. I know they are just publishing those Blog Income Reports based on the reasons I mentioned above. There is nothing wrong with doing so. It’s just my personal opinion not to read them since I don’t think they’ll add much value to my blogging career.
