August Earnings: I Broke the $400/month Barrier…well, almost :-(

img credit: samyii

In my last post, I said I was baaaa-aaack

…and I thought I was…really, I did

…but…erm…I wasn’t.

Anyway, hello, hello! How have you beautiful people been?


…all 2 of you 🙂

(Ok. I shouldn’t be like that. How about 5 or 6? How’s that?

7? Do I hear a 7, anyone?

9. 9 – sold to the lady in the corner 🙂

August Earnings…

Let’s get straight to it. I made $399.04 which I’m pretty chuffed about as I broke through the $300/month barrier and then some. I wish I’d toppled $400 to the floor with one hoopla of a karate chop, especially as I was so close to reaching it (96 cents, people), but ah well, there’s always this month, isn’t there?

Proof of payment: Paypal…

The rest was as follows:

– £70 ($140) paid straight into my bank account for writing
– a £2 ($4) cheque from American Consumer Opinion Panel for a survey I did online.

September Plans…

I’m aiming to make £1000 (roughly $2000) this month (to which a voice promptly replies: Gurl, are you out of your mind?)

Yes. I must be. Obviously.

I initially came up with £500, but then I thought, is that how much I need to survive on this month?


So I doubled it.

I’ve never relied solely on my internet earnings, but I guess there has to be a first time for everything.

My goal isn’t based on thin air, though. I’ve been getting more writing gigs lately and I figured that if I aim to make:

£35 ($70) a day

…then I can reach it.

What the hell, if I don’t reach it, I don’t reach it. There’s no shame in failure, as they say, only in not trying.

Wish me luck!

(…and I hope y’all go some way to achieving your goals for this month too.)

a-whop-paba-loo-bahm, a-whop-bahm-boo…

    Hi curiousman!

    Do you mean proof of payment? At the time I wrote this post, I was getting tired so planned to post proof up the next day. I’m even more tired now (it’s almost 3am here) to log into my accounts, do a screen print of the payments, crop it and post it up.

    Will do it soon. Just not now.

    take care…

    Welcome back again. Hey, $400 is not a bad thing, so the content creation stuff is working for ya.

    (I am yet to hit $100 per month from ads on my site)

    Btw, like DP, even SP (sitepoint forums) have some content creation sections. You could try that as well.

    Hi Ajith!

    Yes, the content creation seems to be working (touch wood).

    re: blog money off your ads – that takes time – I’m sure you’re making something at least.

    I pass through Sitepoint now and again but I’ve never joined. I might give it a try one day.

    take care…

    Hey loverly doverly girlfriend,

    You are rock’n’rolling baby. Keep those wads of cash coming and before long you can buy your mangoes directly from sunny Oz. Woohoo.
    Congrats to you babe and big squishy hugs.
