Recently, I have shared my blogging income till 2019. If you are a newcomer to ScrollBucks, then you can read it here.
I don’t share the blogging income monthly because I am not a professional blogger, but I do like to share my success with readers. Also, my blogging income is not consistent, so I don’t want to write a single post for one income source.
I am sharing my blogging income at the end of the year because newbie bloggers will get motivated, and they will get some energy to work hard on their blogs in the new year.
In 2020, I didn’t work much on my blogs due to my full-time job. As a result, I hardly get time to write a new blog post or update the old ones. Still, I grab some time to write the articles.
Stay tuned till the end of this post to know about my blogging income in 2020 and income proofs. But, before sharing the income, I would like to share the new exciting things that happened to my blog ScrollBucks in 2020.
Purchased Thrive Architect
I am very much interested in clean blog design. I don’t place many ads on my blogs. I wanted to buy a page builder plugin to create different types of landing pages for the blog.
I have checked many page builder plugins, out of which I picked two popular ones, Elementor and Thrive Architect. I read all the features of both the plugins and came up with Thrive Architect.
Now, you might be wondering why I purchased Thrive Architect over Elementor.
The reason why I choose the Thrive Architect plugin is pricing. In Thrive Architect, you will get a lifetime license and updates, but for Elementor, you will get only one year of updates, and you will have to renew the license every year to use the premium features.
As I don’t want to invest more money yearly basis, so I choose to Thrive Architect. You will get Thrive Architect for $67 [Lifetime] and Elementor for $49[1 Year].
NOTE- I have purchased Thrive Architect 5 licenses from my blogging income.
New Home Page
2020 was excellent for my blog ScrollBucks. I have created the home page for ScrollBucks with the help of the Thrive Architect page builder plugin. You can check out my new home page for ScrollBucks and share your feedback, if any.
Also, I have created a new blog archive where you can see all the blog posts. I am trying to update all my articles with beautiful designs using Thrive.
Check out the blog archive here.
If you have a Thrive Architect Plugin and struggle with the designing part, you can connect with me. I can help you to understand the problem.
Started Youtube Channel
I am very much interested in videos. I have started my Youtube channel for the blogging niche by looking at the current trend, but I am not uploading videos regularly. I have uploaded 4-5 videos so far, but soon, I will be on Youtube full time.
If you want to get blogging tutorials, updates then you can subscribe to my channel.
New Featured Image Template
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you may have observed that I am using a different image pattern for my featured image[if not, you can refer to this post featured image].
Also, I have created a video about creating a featured image for my blogs using Canva if you like this type of image pattern.
Stopped AdSense Ads
I have completely removed Google AdSense from ScrollBucks. The AdSense Ads were irritating, and the income from them was very less. So I decided to put AdSense on other blogs.
Now, it’s time to see the blogging income in 2020.
$700 From Paid Articles
This year, I got 27 paid articles from various sources. If the article is from a blogging niche, I happily write those articles to add more value to my blog and readers.
You can check out the below screenshots of income proof from PayPal.
Also, here is the screenshot of few recent transactions on PayPal.
Hostgator Affiliate Income
On ScrollBucks, I promote many blogging resources and earn some bucks from the commission. Therefore, Affiliate Marketing is the main income source for my blog. If you don’t know what affiliate marketing is and how we can implement it, you can refer to my latest tutorial on Affiliate Marketing.
This year, I got one sale from Hostgator Affiliate, and I got a commission of ₹6050 from a single sale only. You can check out the below screenshot.
Purchased Gaming PC
This is out of a box section, but it is related to another blog. This year I have purchased a gaming PC with a high-end configuration.
Below are the configuration of the PC.
- Processor: 10th Generation Intel Core i7-10700 Processor, 2.9 GHz base speed, up to 4.8 GHz maximum speed, 8 Cores, 16MB Cache
- Memory and Storage: 8GB DDR4-2933 RAM, Expandable to 32GB
- Storage: 1TB HDD + 256GB SSD
- Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR6 Graphics
- Monitor: Samsung 27 inch (68.6 cm) Curved Bezel-Less LED Backlit Computer Monitor
NOTE- I will share the photo of my gaming PC soon.
Here is the photo of desktop.
The whole gaming PC setup costs me around ₹ 1,25,000.
This is all about my blogging journey in 2020. I hope the new year will be the best one for me. In 2021, I will try to make many blogging videos and have another blog plan.
I hope you enjoyed this article. If you like it, then share it with your friends.
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2021.
