I am excited (or maybe even ecstatic) that the blog, CashFlowMantra.com, is now carrying its own weight. Just this past week, AdSense earnings for the site surpassed $10 in the month of August. Since the hosting cost I am paying at HostGator is only $9.95, CFM has paid for itself.
It was only about 3 months ago that I started the site so I am pleased that it is now "profitable". Of course, it still is taking a lot of my time which is uncompensated, but I am having fun writing content, commenting on other blogs and interacting with the financial blogger community, and growing the site. I know that it is going to take a lot more effort, but I am encouraged by the early results so far.
I am a little disappointed that I haven't had as much time to write on this blog and track my efforts better. I also haven't been able to spend as much time developing another site as well. I would really like to be able to have more time for writing and building stuff on the internet. But until myself and my family can learn to live without food, clothing, or shelter, I will have to continue to work and only write in my spare time.
I am, however, looking forward to being able to use my skills to help develop another website for my family. This will be a fun project. We have 4 cockapoo puppies that were born two weeks ago. Their eyes opened just yesterday.
We plan on spending the weekend putting together a website to showcase the puppies for sale. We don't plan on having a lot of puppies to sell but maybe one litter a year or so. In the meantime, I am thinking that we can create a resource for others looking to learn about puppies or breeding or training dogs, etc. Maybe I can even convince some of the kids to write a bit of content.
I will of course be sharing with everyone on this blog our progress. The first order of business is to get the domain purchased and get a workable site together over the next 3 days or so. I had hoped to get started on it today, but circumstances beyond my control may prevent that from happening. Oh well, it will happen so I will let you know how it is going.
That is all I wanted to share for now. There are still several days left during the month of August for CFM to make a little more and actually show a profit for the month. Everything past today is simply icing on the cake.
