    As a continuation of my previous post, I just finished up the analysis of 66 blogger income reports from September and took a deeper look at their revenue sources.

    This month got a little interesting as a couple of the larger blogs in our database did not post detailed revenue breakdowns for the month. As you'll see in the numbers below, some of the sources had massive drops between August and September but a few had some massive gains:
    • Bluehost - $91,185.00 <--- down $24k this month :(
    • Amazon Associates - $17,553.67 <--- down $28k this month ... ouch!
    • Clickfunnels - $14,544.00 <--- up $4k this month :)
    What I ended up doing is taking the 170+ revenue sources bloggers reported in September and broke them down into seven categories:
    • Affiliates: $292,340.44
    • Products and Services: $107,550.18
    • Sponsorships: $91,315.07
    • Advertising Network: $52,359.07
    • Freelance: $30,820.06
    • Consulting: $15,986.88
    • Unclassified: $184,553.44
    Unclassified: Revenue that doesn’t fit into the previous six categories or the income reporter didn’t get an details on the specific revenue.

    Here are the Top 5 Affiliate Programs and Top 5 Advertising Networks these bloggers used in September:

    I must say that these are very interesting patterns. I can be able to marvel at just how much the blogs are able to ake as a constant and regular revenue. I would like to say that this is an indication of having blogs that can pay you very well. You however need to invest in the blog very well for you to record good returns. It is a very competitive niche but very rewarding.
