Well, January has been a pretty good month to me and there are still a few days left. The month saw the launch of my newest blog which has gotten over 1800 visitors in the last 30 days. I will probably end up January between 1800 and 2000 which seems like a decent launch considering I am not a professional and only do this part-time.
I also completed the give away for my other blog, Cash Flow Mantra. I will be announcing the winners tomorrow, but they have all received their money. Plus I still have enough in the PayPal account to cover February and March blogging expenses.
AdSense revenue is the highest it has been in almost 1 year. It is a really solid month. I expect that I might come in close to or just over $50. A little bit of growth in February would mean that I could get another check after two months. That would be nice since I am trying to pay off a Discover Card balance with blogging earnings this year.
Finally, I was able to meet my goal with the HubPages Ad Program. I am just over $26 right now and have been adding a lot of content this month. I hope to hit it hard in February and get to monthly payouts with HubPages which would require $50 each month. I figure that $2 per day would do it. I have had only 2 of those in the past 30 days, but I have had several greater than one dollar which I had only done once in the previous 8 months. I am definitely headed in the right direction.
Ultimately, I would like to be able to cover my author costs for Grand Per Month with HubPages income so that I could start another blog. I won't have any additional time to write so I would have to pay to have it done. At $25 per article and 2 articles per week, I would have to pay $200 per month for content, but I think it would be worth it to be able to expand into other areas and try to multiply revenue even if I can only do this part-time.
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.
