eHow income is ahead of HubPages income during the first 5 days of November. After a record month in October, I would have expected a slow down in earnings considering there are lots of ups and downs in revenue from month to month. But I didn't expect to hit a brick wall.
It isn't even that traffic has disappeared either. Sure it is down somewhat compared to the mid-October spike, but daily traffic is higher than it was in September. The big problem is just what you might suspect. I don't have any of my own sites and don't offer any products or major affiliate links. I do have some Amazon capsules on many of my Hubs, but don't get many sells since my Hubs are usually educational or informative.
Oh well, I am sure that things will pick up. I have to remember to look at the bigger picture and keep writing and publishing. It is just that every so often I need to give myself a little pep talk. It has seemed for the most part that the beginning of the month can be especially slow with things picking up later on. And I am still at the point where it only takes a few solid days to make the month decent. I have yet to get enough traffic to see consistent daily revenue which is one of the things that I would like to achieve.
Anyway, thanks for listening to my mini-rant. I am just going to keep going. I have 39 more Hubs to complete by the end of the year and 9 lists at Listmyfive.com to get finished by the end of the month. I should be able to get this done and will see what the effort brings. I really want to just be sure that I surpass November 2009 earnings. I am not quite on pace to do that yet, but it is still early.
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.
