celebrating a $100 day with AdSense. Clearly she is deserving as she has spent quite a bit of time building up her residual income and is the consummate online professional in my book. But she offers a brief glimpse at her humble beginnings in a follow up post where she explains that she earned all of $16.25 for a whole year. Needless to say, that is quite a journey and one that I would like to achieve if only one-tenth as much.
It got me to thinking. What does it take to get a $100 day on AdSense? Felicia has talked about having multiple blogs, but what does it actually mean? So I asked and found out that she has 16 active blogs of which 4 bring in the majority of her income. She is batting about 0.250 for all you baseball fans. Not enough to make it to the Hall of Fame, but certainly respectable to have a decent career in the Show. I figure if I can just make it to triple A ball, I will be blessed.
Now what will it take to make it to triple A? A lot of work, that's what. I figure that I could probably achieve decent success with maybe 10-15% of my blogs. Decent would be defined as earning $5 per day. If I could simply put up 3 blogs in each of the next 12 years, I could probably hit my goal of making $10 per day with AdSense or even so sort of affiliate program. I have a couple ideas that can get me through the rest of this year already.
The best part of Felicia's strategy is that she doesn't do any backlinking to speak of. That is great news since I really don't like that type of busy work. I am doing some blog commenting but that is more social and getting to know fellow bloggers. She does writes great content and let's nature take its course. My content will probably only be decent, hence the 10% success rate. But even getting 3 blogs moderately successful at $5 per day would lead to almost $500 per month which is nothing to sneeze at.
That being said, I really have my work cut out for me to get 36 blogs online with a fair amount of decent content for each one. But breaking it down over the course of a decade really shouldn't be all that difficult. So my goal is to actually act on the two ideas that I have for the remainder of the year and get something up and running. I don't think that part will be all that difficult. The hard part will be maintaining my patience while waiting for traffic to develop and not giving up entirely. There are times that I wonder why I am putting in so much effort. But, you know what, it is simply a lot of fun!
