I am surprised by how slow earnings have been this month so far. At this pace, I will not make enough to get paid by Google and will have to wait for another month. I find it interesting that eHow earnings are currently 50% higher than my AdSense earnings. My CTR is less than half what it has been running.
I am not exactly sure what the cause of it all could be. It could be simply seasonal variations that I have not been exposed to yet. I know the weather here in central Indiana is getting nice and I would rather be enjoying the longer, sunnier, warmer days than on a computer writing or searching. Maybe that is true for others as well.
I am pleased that my HubPages traffic seems to be picking up. The traffic has been gradually improving over the past few months. In the future, that will only be a good thing. I am constantly amazed by anyone who is able to make any money online since it seems like a lot of effort for so little payout. I have to constantly remind myself that I planting the seeds for future earnings by what I do today and that it will take me another year or two to really figure out what the potential might be.
Clearly, we are talking marathon and not sprint. I am determined to keep at it for at least 2 years and see what happens. I am sure some days, weeks, and months will be better than others. I like the challenge and appreciate the opportunity to learn something new. I am amazed at the amount that I have been able to write so far. I would never have guessed that I could have written so much. A little bit here and a little bit there really adds up. All I can do is keep writing and linking the best that I know how. Things will happen when they happen. Hopefully, everyone else is having a better earnings month at least. If not, keep writing because it can all change at internet speed.
