The Edge Search: Blogging Income Reports For July 2016 ($2,846.44 / R41,059.61)

Hello The Edge Search readers!, I have decided to produce monthly income of my blog to help those don't how to make income from different source. 
While July had high income compare to all other previous months, I am looking forward to see who will August perform to beat this great month.  One thing you’ll learn while working with brands is that invoices rarely get paid as quickly as you’d like.  So how did August go?  wait until mid September will give you full details !

Writing these income reports is my way of doing accounting.  I have a nifty Excel spreadsheet to keep track of everything.  As you grow, you’ll want to consider tracking things yourself as well.
