This. Is. AWESOME! I can’t even explain how helpful your Blog Finance Spreadsheets are! I wish I had them two years ago when I first started blogging!
My very favorite part of the entire bundle is that the expenses categories are all coordinated with Schedule C tax deductions! How brilliant is that?
Having every single expense already categorized to match perfectly with the information I need for my taxes, puts my newbie entrepreneur mind at ease!

Not being a spreadsheet person, I can't tell you enough how professional and efficient this makes me feel. It's easy to update and I love seeing all the totals right away. I will be happy to pass this along to my CPA when that time comes and all the info he'll need will be there, easy for him to read.

See how the five elements of the Blog Finance Spreadsheets will make your blog finances a piece of cake!
Keeps track of blog income you have earned, but have not necessarily received
Tracking what you earn, allows you to see the overall effectiveness of the month’s monetization efforts. Though the actual payments will trickle in at different times, it’s helpful to see what you earn when you earn it.
Keeps track of the money that actually reaches your (virtual) hands.
Tracking the money you receive is, well, how you know how much your business is bringing in! Using this information in conjunction with the Expense Ledger, is how you'll know what your profit is!
A simple way to track expenses
In addition to tracking your business expenses, the Expense Ledger allows you to categorize each expense into tax-deductible business expense categories, which simplifies your work at tax time.
All the most important numbers come together
The Summary gives you the totals for the four different streams of blogging income as well as all the expenses broken down into Schedule C categories.
The Summart spreadsheet also allows you to see your monthly profit at a glance, set aside money for taxes and know how much to pay yourself!
You will never manually enter numbers into the "Summary" spreadsheet. All of the cells in the “Summary” auto-populate from the “Received” and “Expenses” spreadsheets.
Because a picture's worth a thousand words (or numbers)
At a glance you can see and compare the most important income and expense metrics annually or monthly using graphs and charts created from the data in your spreadsheets.
I love everything about these spreadsheets. I'm finally clear about when I'm paid what I've earned and where the money is coming from. My accountant doesn't hate me anymore, hahahaha!

People ask me all the time what they should be doing in their businesses to avoid tax surprises. The number one thing I tell them is to track their business activity.
Stephanie's spreadsheet is perfect for doing just that.
The majority of small businesses don't need special bookkeeping software, and I often recommend using a simple spreadsheet. Stephanie's tool is just that, and more. It is simple and yet incredibly effective tool that allows you see the details that really matter, with minimal effort on your part.

Is this a fancy app?
Nope. Technically, it’s just an Excel workbook of five spreadsheets. It is prettier than your average spreadsheet though. It’s all color-coded, too, so it doesn’t feel so spreadsheet-y.
Can I just make my own spreadsheet?
Probably. If you have Excel skills that are above average, then you can certainly make your own spreadsheets that work together. The real value the Blog Finance Spreadsheets is that you don’t have to! We’ve done the dirty work in for you in linking the Income Received spreadsheet and the Expense Ledger into the Summary with the proper formulas, and creating useful graphs and tables.
What if I don't have Excel?
No worries! We have a native Google Sheets version that will work great for you! Same formulas and functionality, no Microsoft Office necessary!
Do I have to pay every month?
Nope! When you purchase and download the Blog Income Spreadsheets, they're yours for life! In fact, I will even send you updates free of charge!
Will this work for freelancers?
Yes and no. If you are a freelancer who bills lots of different clients, you’re probably better off using something like Freshbooks that is designed to handle invoicing clients with ease.
If you aren’t ready to pay the monthly fee of ($15+ per month) for dedicated software like Freshbooks, you can use the Blog Finance Spreadsheets. You can keep track of your clients by tracking the bills sent on your “earned” spreadsheet and your bills paid on your “received” spreadsheet. Comparing the two spreadsheets will help you keep track of what has been paid and what hasn’t.
