2016 Blog Expense Report
What does it really cost to start (and run) a blog in the first year?
My blog isn’t quite a year old yet, but for tax purposes I need to figure out exactly what was spent in 2016.
(When I decided to blog, I never dreamed that what I spent would matter at tax time less than a year later. As you can imagine, there has been some going through of old mastercard bills.)
Why an expense report?
At the end of last February, I was researching how to blog on Pinterest. And I landed on this post with a little timer counting down in it. Some blogging course that was only open once per year was available now and going away in less than 24 hours. The thought hadn’t crossed my mine that I should be thinking about spending money to start this blog. I wanted to do it for free.
