November: End-of-Month Earnings…

img credit: roctopus

I can’t believe it’s December already. Maybe it’s not. Maybe I’m imagining it’s December.

November was cool. I made $614.30. This time last November, I was making close to zilch (if any), so that’s fab-fab-fab!

Payment via Paypal…
Payment via bank transfer…

(p.s: One of my clients pays straight into my bank account. Amount shown is in British pounds)


Well…with more time on my hands, there’s:

1) Web writing: I plan on sticking with the freelancing as it’s earned me the most money online. However, I also wanna look into writing for myself and earning that way.

I’m also thinking about other potential income sources such as:

2) Proofreading: I LOVE proofreading. Don’t know why, but I do. Abso-frikkin-lutely. Have gotten a few gigs in the past. Made around $300 from it this year. Would love to do more.

3) Blog flipping: I’m intrigued by the idea of setting up a blog and selling it on for a profit after a few weeks or months. I think it’ll suit me as I’m quite curious, creative – but transient. I’ll tend to start something, then lose interest in it after a while. Starting something then selling it on after a bit would suit big mama to the ground! I’ve been reading an ebook called Flip Noobs which I’ve found really useful. Haven’t put the info to the test yet, but it’s really given me some clarity on how possible it is. So it’s no longer a matter of ‘if’ I’m gonna do it, but ‘when’. So watch this space.

4) Paid surveys: Ever since I earned that $50 from GlobalTestMarket, I’ve joined a handful (or two) of other survey sites. It’s not gonna make me rich and it does take a certain amount of patience, but I’ll stick with it for 3 months and see how it goes.

5) Affiliate marketing: I don’t know a lot about this area but it’s something I’d like to explore.

6) Other creative pursuits: I used to get paid to run creative-writing workshops, particularly in schools, as well as reading poetry/short stories. Paid VERY well. I still do a couple every now and then, so it might be something to revisit. Running 1 or 2 of those every month would come in very handy.

Oh, and I forgot there’s (7) Mystery shopping: I’ve started doing that. Got my first task last Friday. Expecting £10 for that which is cool as there were no expenses and didn’t take me long.

I doubt I’ll do all of the above this month, but getting started on a couple would be a step in the right direction for 2009, methinks.

Wish me luck!

Have a great weekend, people.

    I’m wishing you more than luck. Think positively, work on all your ideas and you’ll wonder why you didn’t start building businesses from home years earlier!

    The freedom is just amazing. The income can be spectacular and the look on people’s faces is priceless when you tell them you sit on the sofa all day with a laptop on your lap. They just don’t get it! LOL! 😉

    Yeah, keep plugging away and just find those avenues that bring you some revenue.

    Hell, I could be looking at the same thing soon…never know.

    Liked the post! Cheers!

    I LOVE your blog – your spirit.

    Thank you so much for passing through.

    take care…


    Hi Wayne John,

    I found your Blogger posts really helpful so thanks for the series. I’ve bookmarked your site ‘cos I have a feeling it’ll come in handy again pretty soon.

    Have a good week, you two.

    take care…

    Hi Sista,

    Great to hear you are making progress. I miss you but realize we are both busy. I also read that blog flipping ebook and have to say it is top notch.

    I actually started to setup my first few sites for flipping purposes but haven’t gotten much further than posting a few posts.

    I know that it can be very lucrative indeed as a good friend of mine does this quite successfully too.

    Keep it up mango queen and soon enough I might be able to meet you.

    Hello lovely.gorgeous.lovely,

    Yes, it’s been a while, hun. I miss you too. I do pass by your blog from time to time to see how you’re doing.

    The ebook was very well written and covers a lot of ground. I really wanna give it a go and I preferably wanna do it sooner than later.

    I’m glad you’re feeling better, hun. And yes, my hope is that we will meet – one day.

    take care and have a beauty-full week.

    a mango in your palm… and hugs…

    Hey Bloggernoob!

    Thanks for dropping by. Yeah, I’m hoping to hit a profit too. I’ve had enough of office work. I know it won’t be easy though.

    take care…
