How to Track Blog Income Using Spreadsheets

How to Track Blog Income Using Spreadsheets

When I started blogging in 2008, you couldn’t have convinced me it would be a tool for replacing my income.

Fast forward eight years, and I’m showing other bloggers how to make money blogging and run their digital businesses from anywhere in the world. 

One of the most important things any blogger should do when starting out is, decide whether they will blog as a business or hobby. If you choose the latter, then you should begin tracking every penny you earn from day one.

Today I’m going to show you how to do that using a spreadsheet.

You’ll probably want to watch the video first and then open up a fresh spreadsheet and complete the task the second time you watch it.
If after watching this tutorial you have questions, let me know in the comment section. I am going to create a few more videos as part of a business series so make sure you’re on my email list so you’re notified. 
Let’s get started.
