I woke up yesterday morning and couldn't believe my eyes. While I was sleeping (which was only for 5 hours), I had managed to make over $19 on AdSense. I thought I had accidentally picked a month's worth of stats since I haven't been making all that much in AdSense since the Panda attack. But there it was in black and white. A month's worth of earnings in only a few hours. So this is what it feels like to be Felicia from nojobformom.com. I think I like it.
Needless to say, today is back to normal, and I am sitting on 13 cents. But that's is OK with me. I am excited about the prospects of continuing to build up various blogs and sites in the months and years to come. I have a long term horizon as I outlined in my article on compounding my online income. As you can see from the table, I only need to be making $53.87 this month. Plus I have a year before I need to make $100 per month to stay on track.
I honestly think that I will be able to do this now that I have my own WordPress blog. I may not quite make it this month with just AdSense, but adding in Amazon and the HubPages Ad Program may help although HubPages traffic keeps declining. But traffic at CashFlowMantra.com is taking off. I am entering the Yakezie Challenge with that site and will be pushing it hard to gain traffic which can only help. I am enjoying using WordPress and look forward to being able to make a few more sites this year also.
Sorry to make this a short post, but I have to get out and fire up the grill for dinner. In the next few posts, I will be posting my quarterly earnings and some goals for the rest of the year.
