Well, I just got back from Honduras and had limited access to the internet. As a result, I did absolutely nothing for developing my online income. You may have noticed that it has been a while since I last wrote a post. I left last Thursday early in the morning and got back late last night which was actually 9 days total. I am still tired and am gradually trying to get back into the swing of things. I figure it will take about a week to catch up with everything.
There were several great things that happened while I was away in terms of the work that I am doing online. My articles and blogs continued to earn money. While I was gone, I earned a total of $29.55 with AdSense. One of those days was even in the double digits! My first one ever!
Traffic is also at record levels. I am amazed by the amount of traffic that I am seeing. It seemed to run consistently above my typical average. Not only is traffic high, but I added followers on both HubPages and this blog. I am now over 400 followers on HubPages and over 50 on this blog. These are numbers that I didn't expect to hit until the end of the year.
I think the key to my improved traffic and earnings is the level of effort that I put into passive income development during the 6 weeks prior to my leaving. By publishing at a rate that was higher than I had been publishing this year, I was able to enhance my visibility during the time that I was away. This visibility led to increased traffic and ultimately, increased earnings including my first ever double-digit AdSense day.
I am encouraged that as I get back into the swing of things and begin publishing again, I can maintain traffic levels at a higher plateau than I had enjoyed previously and will begin earning more on a consistent basis. I suspect that I could even achieve another double-digit earning day by the end of the year. It won't be long and I will be making enough with Google AdSense to receive monthly checks.
So if you feel discouraged about your online income, remember that hard work will eventually pay off. You may not know when it will happen but give it time. Ultimately good content will rise to the top.
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.
