Income Report for January 2021

Here are the numbers for January 2021.  As expected, sizeable drop in ad revenue.  Big increase in content investment.

Fat Stacks NOT included in income reports

This income report ONLY includes revenue/expenses from my various niche blogs. It does NOT include revenue or expenses from Fat Stacks.  Fat Stacks is a different type of site altogether. These reports are merely to demonstrate that various niche blogs can be a good business.  It would be ludicrous to include revenue from Fat Stacks since it’s the very site that publishes income reports.  It would state “here’s my income report based on income earned by publishing income reports.”  Doesn’t make sense to me.


There are missing sites below because I sold a bunch in December and January.

All figures are in USD.

  • Niche Site 1: $60,496
  • Niche Site 3: $270
  • Niche Site 8 ( $44
  • Niche Site 9 : $1,914
  • Niche Site 10: $135

Total Revenue from 5 sites: $62,859

The lion’s share of revenue is from display ads.

Expenses for all niche sites

I lump together all expenses for all 8 niche sites because it’s difficult, impractical and unhelpful to spend the time allocating each expense to each site.

Total expenses for 8 niche sites: $10,150

Net Income: $52,709

Content investment: $16,204

Content sources include WriterAccess and in-house writers.

Net income after content investment:   $36,505

I explain here why I extract content costs from expenses.

Since the lion’s share of revenue is from AdThrive, I’ll just include an AdThrive screenshot. Additional revenue sources include, Amazon and a few other tiny revenue streams.
