Welcome to my thirteenth lifestyle report where I share my income, personal expenses, fitness, productivity, social media and blog statistics. Check out my first lifestyle report to find out why I started documenting my life. Here’s the August’s report.
September was definitely one of the most exciting months of the year. I spent one-month coliving and coworking in a beautiful island of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
September was one of the most profitable months this year. I made $3,501.24 after all the business expenses and taxes. Check the full breakdown below.
I have spent just over $2,000 this month as I had my room booked and embarked on an all-inclusive cruise cutting my expenses. Check all the details below.
I’m skipping the sleep report as it was ruined by me being two weeks offline while on the cruise. Fitbit couldn’t properly handle two weeks offline tracking data across 5 time zones. Here’s my fitness report.
September I worked a lot less but managed to get a lot done including writing a massive chunk of my book. There are only two chapters left and I’ll soon dive right into the editing process.
To track my time I use RescueTime, an app that tracks everything you do and gives you a productivity score. I know I’m not a machine and I consider it a good day if my productivity pulse is over 55.
Social media and blog stats
My Facebook page grew noticeably thanks to Facebook ads and nearly $100 I spent on it. Below are some more stats of my blog and social media.
