Another month has flown by and I am constantly amazed at the speed of which time flies by these days. I guess this is also due to the fact that I am as busy as ever and the purpose of showing you my stats is not to proof something to you, but merely to show that one can indeed make money on the Internet.
At present my aim is to get noticed as a Freelance Writer and I can honestly say that things are working fine for me in this regard. I have several regular clients for which I am blogging for, write niche marketing articles and keyword rich articles for SEO. Most of this work is regular and others were once of who ended up referring me more clients. I am really happy with my progress so far.
I also realize that the biggest threat to my blogging, freelance writing income is the inability to work whilst I’m sick or on holidays, which means no income for me and this is a major concern for me for the future. Whilst I’m very happy with what I do as it allows me to follow my passion, I also realize that I need residual income.
We all know my experience in MLM and how this isn’t for me at all, so MLM is out of the picture for this plan. My focus for residual income at this stage is on product creation strategies and something will need to happen regarding this over the next few month.
As from this month I also started to track my time because I realize that I’m wasting time where I could utilize it to earn even more money. By tracking the time I spend on various tasks every day, it will give a great overall picture of what to be aware of at the end of this month E.G. time wasters.
Where in September 2007 I received just over 400 actual visitors to this blog, in October it was nearly 600. I guess the blog has just taken another leap ahead and so far I’m really happy with my progress.
For me as a blogger the most rewarding experience is to receive regular traffic with readers that feel happy to comment and share. This makes it all worthwhile to me and I just love you guys for contributing. That is why I put in a considerable amount of dollars into my monthly competitions I believe in reciprocating and giving back. Doing this is my way to give back to some of you.
Anyway, I’ve rambled on long enough about me and I realize that some just want to see the cheese, so here it is:
$ 00.00 Affiliate income
$ 600.00 Blogging
$ 637.50 Copy Writing
$ 1237.50 Total Income for October 2007
As you can see, last month’s income was solely from blogging and freelance writing. Those are what I focused on and everything else took a bit of a suffering. I also decided that for the time being I didn’t want to write any reviews with PPP, all though this might change again in the future. Since I got a PR 3 I could probably earn around $ 900 extra with this method but to be honest I am concerned about the outcome of paid reviews for future Google slaps.
If they would allow us to do reviews with “nofollow” links, the story would be different.
Anyway, that’s it for my stats and hopefully I haven’t bored you to dead with them.
