How To Manage Your Earnings As A Blogging Mompreneur

Managing your earnings from blogging as a mompreneur |

Hey there mamas,

I’m glad to see you are joining me as I continue my mompreneur series. My first two posts in the series were how to avoid mistakes when becoming a mompreneur and the costs of starting your own home business . Today, I will be showing you how to manage your earnings as a blogging mompreneur.

How To Manage Your Earnings As A Blogging Mompreneur

Blogging is a great way for busy moms to earn money. Whether you write your own blog that you monetize or you make money from writing blogs for others, it’s a flexible venture that can help make the most of your writing skills. While it can be a good money-maker, it can also be an unpredictable business – particularly from the financial side.

Working for yourself means that you’re going to need to get a handle on your finances. The following tips are a good place to start from managing your blogger earnings so that you can make a living from out of your blogging work.

Get some savings behind you

If you’re leaving another job to start blogging full-time, you’re going to need some savings behind you. Having some savings is important for those months when work is quieter than usual, or you’re struggling to get those invoices paid. As you continue to earn from your blogging, make sure you save a portion of it to put in your ‘rainy day’ fund. Try to save enough to cover your outgoings for three months, which should give you time to seek alternative work if blogging dries up. 

Keep your blogging earnings and other finances separate

When you’re making a business out of blogging, you need to treat it like a professional business, and that means having a separate account. Make sure that all of your earnings are paid into one bank account that you can then pay yourself out of. This will help you to manage any business expenses you might have and make it easier for you to keep control of your money.

Save for your taxes

As well as having an emergency fund, you’re going to need to save for your tax bill too. Nobody wants to deal with that shock at the end of the year, so make sure that you put aside what you need as you earn it. Read up on what you need to know about tax and make sure you know all of the deadlines of when key payments are due.

Get savvy with invoicing

Working for yourself requires an element of trust in your clients. You expect them to pay their invoices on time and in full, but there are never any guarantees that someone will stick to their word. If you find yourself struggling with late payments, agree on payment terms firmly in advance and set clear deadlines for when you expect to be paid. You can ask for a retainer before you begin work so that you’ve had at least a partial payment upfront. I highly recommend using PayPal for all of this. 


If late payments start affecting your finances, you might want to read up on how fast cash loans work. A cash loan could tide you over until your invoices are paid, but you should be cautious about how much you borrow. Other solutions include hiring a collection service to help you resolve any disputes or seriously overdue payments.


There’s some good money to be earned from blogging, and it can be a great career to fit around being a mom. If you’re thinking of going for it, learn to avoid the common mompreneur mistakes that many moms face at the beginning. With the right attitude and some organization, you can turn your dreams of being a full-time blogger into reality.

I thoroughly enjoy my career as a blogger and I know you will too! Horray for blogging mamas!

The Sunshine Blogger Award!

Sunshine Blogger Award |

Hey hey mamas!

I’m so excited and honored to be a winner of the amazing Sunshine Blogger Award!
The Sunshine Blogger Award is given to bloggers by other bloggers who are creative, positive, and inspiring.

Sunshine Blogger Award |

All winners of the award must answers questions given to them by the blogger who nominated them, so here are my answers Gemma!

  1. What made you choose your topic in blogging? As a single mom, I find support a very difficult and almost non-existent thing. So I wanted to write about things other single moms could relate to as well as offering advice, tips and support directly from my own experiences.
    2. What motto do you live by? I don’t have one.
    3. What is the biggest challenge you had to overcome while starting your blog? Making the time for it. Being a single mom who homeschools and manages an online business finding the time to write content has been really hard, but now that I have no clients in my VA biz, I am finding more time to write which has been great.
    4. If you had the opportunity to interview anyone you like and feature them who would it be? Johnny Depp. Because he’s a true artist. He has so much creativity and passion and he’s such an incredible man. I’d love to just listen to him talk, tell stories and answer questions.
    5. Who is your favorite blogger? I don’t guess I have one because I don’t follow any haha.
    6. If given the opportunity to mentor a new blogger, what single piece of advice would you give them? Be uniquely yourself. Don’t try to copy anyone else, or be fake. Just be you and if people follow then they will follow.
    7. What is something interesting that most people don’t know about you? I am an obsessive T.V watcher! Every evening and into the wee hours of the morning I am in front of my T.V with snacks and tea, either watching the latest episode of my newest show obsession or binging an oldie but goodie that I’ve watched a million times before.  I love my shows!
    8. You have a chance to replay your childhood game/video game. What would it be? I never really played games growing up, I wasn’t that kind of kid. But if I have to pick something, I guess I’d say Pogs. Who remembers those!?
    9. Name a blogger you would love to collaborate with. I don’t know any 🙁
    10. What would you like to achieve by end of 2017? Successfully earning an income. Try as I might, money just doesn’t grow on any of my trees. Also, I have a goal of finishing the first draft of the personal novel I have been writing for the last 3 years.
    11. What would you like to tell your readers? That even though times may be tough, and you may feel alone in your journey that you are never alone. I am here to be your friend and I hope you subscribe to my blog so we can stay connected!

Again a huge thank you to Gemma Horlock for my nomination! You should check out Gemma’s blog here!

I am very excited to offer you another amazing toolkit! This one is for bloggers so if you are a fellow blogger then this is gonna rock your world! So can I ask you a question? Ever feel overwhelmed by blogging?

You’re not alone.

There have been so many times in my own blogging journey when I’ve felt daunted by what I was learning and doing and struggled to overcome challenges like increasing my traffic and income in ways that matched my lifestyle and values.

Overall, blogging has been one of those incredible “pinch me” parts of my life. I can hardly believe I get to do something I love so much and be part of such a special community.

But it isn’t always easy, and the fast-changing nature of the blogosphere means I can’t ever stop learning how to be a better blogger.

I’ve found my blog really thrives when I’m growing in my skills, connecting with others who get the work I’m doing and pushing myself to try new things and improve my weak areas.

I make a point of prioritizing my growth as a blogger, and one of the best ways I’ve found is by learning from other experienced bloggers who’ve mastered a particular aspect of blogging.

Problem is, it can get pretty pricey to buy all the new books or courses that cover the topics I’m looking for.

Which is why I am over the moon about the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit.

It’s a digital package crammed full of brilliant tools to help you grow your blog, work smarter & make more money.

(But for way less than you’d normally spend!)

The team at Ultimate Bundles has put together the best resources on ALL the topics that matter to bloggers, like mastering social media, monetization, creating and selling products, time management. and productivity, nurturing an email list, and so much more.

Here’s what you get:
24 eBooks
33 eCourses & audio files
5 printable packs

Bonus Offers |

In total, the toolkit includes over $3,600 of blogging tips, strategies, tutorials and amazingly practical information and ideas. Plus you get free bonus offers worth $1250+, with 15 tools and services to help you run your blog.

But the truly amazing part? They’re selling it for a crazy 97% off of regular price!

I know, it sounds too good to be true, but I promise it’s not. Ultimate Bundles has been around a long time and creating these packages is really their thing (they’ve sold over 180,000 of them on all sorts of topics), so you can trust this is the real deal.

Even better, they’re all about making sure you LOVE this toolkit. There’s a full 30-day happiness guarantee, so there’s really no risk in trying it out.

The most important detail, though, is that this toolkit is available for just two days. After Tuesday night, April 4th, the sale ends and you’d have to buy all of these products individually.

I’d hate for you to miss out, so click here to learn more or buy the bundle.

It’s even backed by a full money-back happiness guarantee, so you can make sure it’s right for you. Get what you need for your healthy lifestyle. Learn more or get your bundle here:

I hope you are excited about growing your blog and snag up this toolkit while it’s on sale! Yay for blogging!

Love you, girls, catch ya in my next post!
