Back from Vacation and A Passive Income Report

I am back from vacation and plan on writing several Hubs about the experience.  I will post the links on this blog when I get that done for those who might be interested.  We had a great time especially in Cozumel where we swam with the dolphins as you can see from the accompanying picture.  The sun was great that day!

Anyway, I thought I would report on the passive income that I received while away with no internet access.  I will include the time from starting travel on Sunday, December 19th and count through this morning as I write this report.  This is the time that I didn't do anything on the internet in relation to online income making all revenue totally passive.

This only counts AdSense income as I did not note how much I had earned on eHow prior to leaving.  I do know that while away I had an Amazon order for a book but it hasn't shipped yet so I don't know how much that will earn.  I expect it will be about 75 cents to a dollar.

I did receive decent levels of traffic while away, but traffic did decline between Tuesday and Christmas day.  I am not surprised since I suspect many people had last minute preparations for the holidays.  I was somewhat disappointed that I did have a few days with minimal revenue, but I did have 2 good days.  The total for those 6 full days and 1 partial day was $10.93. 

Overall, not that bad considering it is on par with what I might expect to earn for a 7 day period based on my recent monthly earnings.  Needless to say, I plan on being able to increase this total over the next year and will write a post on this in the near future outlining my goals and plans.  In the meantime, I have several days off work to be able to relax and write a little bit as well.  I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays and is getting ready for a wonderful 2011.


  1. I am looking forward to your posts on your vacation! I always like to hear what people like and dislike. Merry Christmas!

  2. Thanks, Jan.
    I will probably write about the dolphin swim first since that will be a whole article by itself. I will probably then write reflections on cruise #1 in 2008 and cruise #2 which we just finished and make comparisons. It may take a few days but I should be able to get them done by the time I have to return to work on Wednesday.

  3. Happy to hear you had a good time on your vacation. My earnings (Google & EHow) went down a bit the week before Christmas too - that was to be expected. Looking forward to reading about your vacation. :)

  4. Thanks, Deanna. Sorry to hear about your earnings but I suspect that a seasonal variation is to be expected. Hopefully I will get writing a little bit later this evening and publish a few pictures as well.

  5. Merry Christmas, Kidgas. It looks like you and your family had a great time. That was such a good idea, going on a cruise for the holidays (and so much material to write about).

    Best wishes for a healthy and prosperous 2011.

  6. Felicia,
    Thanks. We did have a great time. I also got plenty of ideas for articles at the same time. Maybe I should write off the trip. LOL.

  7. Great blog. I found it by chance. I'll definitely be looking into your posts about earnings. Thanks for the info!
