Right, I’m gonna jump straight to it. I made $496.44 in August. Grateful for the money, but slightly frustrated it was a few dollars short of $500. I’m no longer aiming to make $1000 a month for now; need to go back to the drawing board. Actually, there wasn’t a board to start with, or a marker, which was parto of the problemo.
Another part of the problem was…at the start of every month, things tend to look more achievable, don’t they? So I thought, “hey, why not shoot for $1k this month?” I just sat there and plucked a nice round thousand outta my head like the frikkin tooth fairy was gonna tuck a wad of dollar bills under my pillow.
Anyway, August’s earnings (breakdown):
(any figures in pounds means I was originally paid in that currency)
– Writing: $249.13 (blog writing – $230.64 …and blog commenting – $18.49 (£11.87))
– Research work: $47.75 (last pay from the research gig I packed in)
– ebay: $36.13 (£23.34) (still getting rid of stuff)
– Proofreading: $24.24
$500: a new obsession…
This is the second time I’ve been sooooo oooo oooo close to making $500/month this year. In June, it was $492.96. Because I’ve been so close, because it’s eluded me TWICE, I can feel it becoming something of an obsession this month. Maybe that’s the extra ingredient I need.
Here’s to a kick-ass September (for you, too). Grrrrrr it.
