I’m going to start giving more detailed monthly income reports of where exactly my online income is coming from. This is both for my readers, to help you see where I make my money online, and also for myself, so I can see the progress I am making month to month in different areas.
I’ve always loved to read other people’s online income reports, and my favorite one to read is Pat Flynn’s income reports from SmartPassiveIncome.com. I’m not where near how much income he brings in per month. But everyone has to start somewhere. There was a time in the past when he was only making what I am making now. His blog and income reports have been a great inspiration to me and thousands of other people who are trying to make money online from home. His May income report is out yet, but you can read his April income report here. I love how transparent he is about where his online income comes from. I hope to do the same type of thing here on Five Green Lizards with my own income reports. Please be advised that some of the links listed in the income sources may be affiliate links and I may earn a commission if you make a purchase through them. Thank you in advance for this.

The following amounts are the actual income that was PAID to me in the month of May. These earnings may have been from sales that occured 60-90 days prior to them being paid out to me in May. Each affiliate and income source pays out on a different schedule. I am just reporting the income I actually received as payment this month.
