Well, here is the second (and last) of my earnings reports for the year 2009. I have elected to only post earnings on a quarterly basis so as not to clutter up the blog with monthly posts. Besides I would like to compare results a little less frequently since there can be so much fluctuation in internet income, and I don't want to get discouraged on a monthly basis.
One big highlight of the last quarter of 2009 was getting my first Google AdSense check in the mail. What an exciting day! I am looking forward to getting another one after January provided there is no major problem with earnings. I have continually managed to increase AdSense impressions throughout the quarter and hope to increase by roughly 5% each month so that by the end of the year, my AdSense impressions (and hopefully earnings, too) have doubled.
My goal is to take 3 months for the second check with which I am slightly ahead of schedule, 3 months for the third check, 2 months for the next 2 or 3 checks, then by the end of 2010 be on pace to get monthly AdSense checks. That would be a great accomplishment if I could achieve that this year.
I added some earnings from Life123 in November and December which helped out a lot. I hope to be able to watch this source of income slowly increase in 2010. If you read my 2010 goals post, you know that I want to try and publish 20 articles per month on the site. It will be a challenge to be sure. I will try to organize my internet time and create a schedule to better accomplish tasks on a daily basis.
So, without further adieu:
AdSense -- $45.95
eHow -- $21.08
Other (YouData, Cash Crate) -- $4.37
Total -- $71.40
November Earnings: AdSense -- $35.60
eHow -- $12.57
Life123 -- $10
Other -- $2.64
Total -- $60.81
December Earnings: AdSense -- $38.04
eHow -- $15.54
Life123 -- $10
Other (Triond) -- $1.04
Total -- $64.64
Total Earnings for Q4 2009 -- $196.83
Total Earnings for Q3 2009 -- $108.90 (which actually includes June as well)
I was almost able to double earnings from the 3rd to the 4th quarter of 2009. I don't think I will be able to double again, but I hope to have steady growth through 2010 as more and more articles are published. I also hope to have my first double digit day (over $10) in the first 6 months of the year and my first $100 month sometime in 2010. I would like to earn about $1200 for the year which would mean averaging over $100 per month. I think I should be able to get there in the first half of the year and make up for the deficit in the second half.
That is all I had for today. How were your earnings over the past few months? How do you hope to improve earnings in 2010? Feel free to comment and have a Happy New Year's Day!
