first travel blogging income report - August 2019

My first income report for The Atlas Heart! This is what I did in August 2019 to start building up my income streams on this blog. 

I did a thing in mid-July. I made a promise to myself and the greater internet world that I would finally give this whole full time blogging career a proper chance.
