Blogger, home and online income report January 2019

Posted on

Welcome to my monthly income report where I share how much money I have managed to make from home.  This income is from blogging, various online side hustles, money-making smart phone apps, website testing, matched betting, online selling and I also include any cash back I have earned.  

To read an in-depth reason behind sharing my income reports start with the blog post why I publish income reports and another great read is how I made £35000 from home in 2018

User Testing £7.42

I've joined some more website testing platforms and I completed my first test with User Testing.  They paid within a few days.  The payments are $10 per test.  There are a lot of tests on there, but I've not qualified for any more yet, but perhaps your demographics and lifestyle will allow you to complete more.  I hope to be able to complete a few tests a month to bump up my side-hustle earnings.  You can sign up at


OhMyDosh! £12.51

This is a Get Paid To style website where you basically get paid to do things such as sign up to trials.  I signed up to the Which? 30 day trial and an Amazon 30 day trial.  I literally cancelled right away and basically got paid to trial them for 30 days!

Top Cashback £21.43

I LOVE getting cashback.  You're just wasting money if you're not getting any on your online purchases.  It's free money back for the things you are already buying!

WhatUsersDo £25

I do website testing at WhatUsersDo and it’s so easy!  I get paid £5 per test and some of them are only a question or two.

This was my payment for tests completed in December, but I already know I should be getting around £70 in February for the tests I completed in January as I did a lot more.

Personal eBay £30

As predicted for the last couple of months, my eBay sales have dropped.  Last year I consistently made over £100 per month selling our unwanted and outgrown toys, clothes and shoes on eBay.  I've barely got anything left to sell and I gave a lot to charity last month, but still managed to bag £30 in extra pocket-money for the month.

Matched betting £41.04

A pretty quiet month compared to last month.  This was really lucrative for me in the beginning, but after two years it's dying down as I have been gubbed from so many good accounts.  I still check it at the weekends and sometimes there are good offers for me.  There are other methods to learn, but I only bother with the easiest ways so I limit my potential income.  I made around £1500 in the first couple of months when I started matched betting and I highly recommend it for the startup offers, even if you don't continue with it long-term.

I highly recommend matched betting as it's made me £5000 in just under two years which is tax-free cash.  At first it was very time-consuming, but once I got the hang of it I could make around £50 per hour with the little time I spent doing it.  As a side-hustle it is a brilliant and fun way to make extra money from home. There's no need to do every offer and you can take your time working through the sign up offers.  

I recommend using Profit Accumulator for matched betting as a beginner.  I've always used them since starting.  They have so many guides and walk you through the process in the first few offers.  If you get stuck you can ask a question in the forum and someone will get back to you.  They also have a 30 day money back guarantee on their memberships, plus you can try the first couple of offers without even signing up to anything to see that it really does work and is so simple once you get the hang of the free bet offers!

Blog writing £1706.19

This is always my most lucrative method of income from home each month.  I love to write and thoroughly enjoy writing about topics that I am passionate about, sharing my experience, or researching topics I enjoy to learn more and then share it on my blog in a relatable way.   I write for four blogs.  One makes the bulk of the income and I'm building up the others with an aim to have four money-making blogs to give me a more secure income by the end of 2019.
