I have been too-ing and fro-ing over whether to start publishing a monthly income report for this site for some time now.
While the big players in other niches do it, I do have doubts about whether they do it to brag or be transparent.
With everyone who has anything to say about veganism, monetising their website and YouTube videos I think that we need to be honest about how much money we make from other vegans.
It is with the view of being totally transparent that I have decided to publish one.
As it is early days on having the site monetised, these income reports are definitely not done to brag about how much I make.
At the moment, the main income source is Google Adsense.
While I do have videos on YouTube, I am below the minimum amount of views to have them monetised.
At the moment, there won’t be much of an expenses report as I the expenses incurred, webhosting, domain name, email provider, images, etc are all part of the expenses from one of my business.
That being said, while the charges themselves would be relatively small, if I was to proportion it out, this site is still some ways off from being self sufficient.
The income produced from this site goes to the not for profit, Australian Vegan Foundation. (They have the site GoodVeganBadVegan.com and have things in store for 2018).
The email list grew by 10% to 70 subscribers now.
Which is pretty good if you ask me, as I haven’t really promoted the email newsletter that much.
You can find the actual income report here.
