For the first two years of our digital nomad journey I tracked how much money we earned online in income reports and shared it with you here. All amounts were in US dollars until February 2015 when I switched to AUD. I still share income details with my subscribers so sign up to my newsletter here:
December 2013: $1800
Our first pay day! J finally earned some money from his IT product and this is where all this money comes from.

Money from travel blog and gambling product. We also spent a week in Singapore which was sponsored.
We earned money through my travel blog and J’s gambling product. I started to earn money from my Amazon niche sites.
We earned money from the travel blog, gambling product and niche sites.
We earned money from the travel blog, this site, niche sites and the gambling product.
The majority of our earnings came from our travel blog with an increasing amount from our niche sites. This was the month we left Australia to be digital nomads!
This was my favourite month so far as I earned all of the money – the majority coming from my travel blog with a few hundred from my niche sites. We also had three fabulous weeks of sponsored travel. This month I also met my first income goal – half of what we need to sustain our current lifestyle in Malaysia.
A fabulous month with most of this money coming from my travel blog. My niches sites also made a good contribution as did J’s freelancing work.
March 2015: $5,379 + 4 days travel
Our best month yet! A big chunk came from J’s freelance work but the majority was from my travel blog and niche sites. I am now on $76 a day passive income!
An income drop thanks to not making much money from freelancing. However, it has been the best month yet for my sites with the majority of money coming from them. Passive income has just about reached the level we need for our living costs!
Our best month yet thanks to ever increasing affiliate income and a bit of freelancing. We hit our big goal of $150/day passive income.
A fabulous month as we stopped doing short term income earners to focus on the long term and upped out passive income to over $200/day.
Another great month as we increase our earnings while doing no freelancing work.
A great month as we made this solely from affiliate income and Google AdSense.
All passive income!
