Hoping for a Strong End of August (Plus Free Golf)
August 2010 has been one of the most consistent months for AdSense earnings that I have seen in a long time. It is very encouraging, and I hope that it is a sign of good things to come for the rest of the year. Even if things don't quite go as expected, I need to keep things in perspective and realize that I am building on the future. Everything that I do now will benefit me a year and two years from now.
Also keeping things in perspective is the fact that last August my AdSense earnings were $20.85, and I have already doubled that total with a few days yet to go. I am also closing in on my all-time best AdSense month of $45.95. If I start seeing this type of consistency in the last four months of the year, then it might be possible to receive a check from Google every other month.
As mentioned in the previous post, I want to start working a little on Amazon earnings since I am very close to a $10 payout. I want to have 30 product Hubs (up from a current 3) by the end of September so I will have quite a bit of work to do next month and have to find the time to do it. That is the biggest problem for me currently. Finding the time to compose Hubs during soccer season is incredibly difficult. I will go to work in the morning, go to my daughter's soccer game from work, and then go to pick up the others from gymnastics practice. The end result is that I am gone from 6 am until 10 pm three or four days each week.
Oh well, I can only do what I can get done and not let it get me down. I have to maintain my physical condition and mental sanity which is why I have been taking a decade long approach. I am in a marathon and not a sprint and will have to make year to year comparisons rather than focus on month to month as much.
Anyway, I hope that everyone is doing well. The weather here in Indiana has been fantastic for August with mild evenings and low 80's highs. There is plenty of sunshine as well. I have the day off from work to go to a charity golf outing that was unexpected. A colleague had a group fall through and asked me to go instead since the fee had been paid. I can't think of anything better than free golf. Don't worry, I won't feel too bad if I don't get any Hubs written today as long as I am putting well! LOL!
I am just a neophyte learning to make money online. I am excited about the opportunities and hope to share what I am learning.
I am also interested in real assets such as gold and real estate. I have a blog on these topics as well. Be sure to stop by and check out both my blogs.
