I must say that the past week has been very enlightening in terms of the potential for passive income. The reason has been that I got sick with a stomach and intestinal virus on New Year's Day and was able to lay around over the weekend while making grandiose plans. I lost about 6 pounds and didn't do a lot. Once Monday rolled around and I had to go back to work, I found that I had absolutely no motivation or physical energy to accomplish anything except work and basic survival tasks.
As a result, I did not keep to my schedule the way I had envisioned in my last post. I ended up doing very little in the way of writing or even interacting in the blogosphere. I was able to check e-mail and respond to a few comments but that was about it. So, I would like to apologize for not posting on this blog as often. I will try to assume the schedule that I proposed beginning in February. Even though I feel that I am finally getting back to 100% both physically and mentally, I am preparing for a week long golf trip in South Carolina. Thus, I make no promises as to what I could get done so I am planning on doing nothing except golfing and answering comments.
A Test of Passive Income
The silver lining coming out of my illness and lack of production for one week has shown me that it is still possible to make online income passively. The traffic at all of my sites has had fairly steady baseline which was maintained. Traffic at this blog was slightly decreased but over the past month has been up. I suspect that I will be able to post more often again which will help. I doubt that I will get any other major articles done for the month so have written it off from that regard. If I do get something done, great! If not, I won't be worrying about it. (I also have a work project that I need to get done so any free time will be spent working on that.)
To sum it all up, I will be moving at a much slower pace for the rest of January but plan on kicking it back into high gear again in February. Thanks to everyone who has come by to read this blog. I certainly appreciate it. I also want to encourage everyone regarding the potential of passive income. Despite my lack of activity, earnings have held up and I have benefitted from the efforts of last year.
