I have been excited the last few mornings because I am actually making money while I sleep. When I woke up today, I checked my Google Adsense account and had $0.03. OK, I know that you are thinking that 3 pennies is not a lot. And I agree. But the fact still remains that I made them while sleeping and without any clicks. The income was based solely on the number of views that I had to my sites. That, my friends, is true passive income! That is why I am so excited.
Even better than that--I had no ad clicks at all yesterday. Why is that so great? Because I made $0.28 just on traffic alone. That's over $8 a month without doing anything at all! That would be enough to pay for a Hostgator account and start my own niche websites. I am not quite ready for that yet, but I am learning. And this is only my 4th full month of writing online.
The more I write, the more views I will get. The more views, the more passive income. Not to mention the fact that as traffic increases, the odds of getting ad clicks will increase. Imagine what I could be doing with 10x the traffic that I had yesterday. Take the income from views and throw in some clicks, and I could easily be looking at $100 per month.
Just Get Going
It doesn't take a lot to make passive income online. You just have to get going. It starts out slow and simple, but if you are persistent and can make it through the first several months, it will start to pay off as it has started to for me.
In fact, I was getting so excited, I decided to start another blog. This one is a niche about investing in real assets. It is a topic about which I am very passionate. I figure I can easily spend 15-20 minutes every other day or so to write a post. Plus I can throw a few links to my articles on real estate and gold investing as well. If it is like this blog, in a few months I will be earning a few dollars each month. Then who knows? I think it is worth it.
You can check out my new blog here. It is called Real Assets. I will be making another post later today. Right now there is only one since I just started yesterday.
Til next time. Keep writing for that passive income. I may take a nap and earn some more money. Yippee!
