If you are a professional blogger at some point you will need to find a way to keep track of your finances. Your income (sponsored posts, ad revenue, affiliate ads, product or service fees) and expenses (conference fees, design work, office supplies, internet fees.)
Many bloggers have created printables or spreadsheets to track these things. Try a few and figure out which one works best for you. I highlight a few options below. They show as pins so you can easily repin to your own boards or click through to see the website it came from.
