Online Earnings: December 2011 and 2011 Total…

Hey, peoplez 🙂

How are yee? How’s your year been so far?

I was looking back on my earnings post for 2010 and one of the things I said was:

“This year, for me, is all about TAKING ACTION and CONQUERING FEARS. Life is shy; I need to stop waiting around for it to make the first move.”

Well, I don’t think I quite managed that, not as much as I should have – I don’t think I explored anywhere near my potential, online and offline – not even 40% of it, and that’s me being generous. Fear continues to play a HUGE part in the decisions I don’t make, in the actions I don’t take. It’s something I’ve struggled with for some time, year on year. I almost don’t want to think about what I want to achieve this year for fear of disappointing myself. You see? The fear thing again.

Anyhoo, on a better note, I made more money online in 2011 than I did in 2010 🙂

…but first, DECEMBER 2011’S EARNINGS:

My earnings were a bit more varied in December which I was quite happy about: the new blog commenting gig, couple more survey and GPT payouts, Squidoo, article writing. Plus my main blogging client gave me a $50 bonus for the holidays – was super surprised and chuffed with that. 🙂

    Not bad at all my dear! That’s 4 grand you didn’t have before so just keep doing what you’re doing. It might not be millions, but hey, I’m sure you’re happy for that extra change… as am I when I earn online! After all that’s how it started and it still remains that way today!

    Anyway, was just working on a new Blogger project and browsed through my reader, so stopped by to say hey!

    Take care!

    Hi TriNi 🙂

    How are you, lady?

    Yes, I’m grateful for what I’ve earned – was better than 2010 too. I’m hoping to do better this year. Time to take it up a notch.

    Good luck with the Blogger project. You gonna share what it is once it’s ready?

    I’m insanely jealous of your ability to stick with these types of sites. Each time I read your get paid to blog I find myself amazed. I’m glad you have found a way to make some real cash and that you’re such a kind person to share this with the rest of us 🙂
    I hope 2012 is even more profitable for you!

    Hi Pamela 🙂

    Good to hear from you, lady!

    Aww, thanks. I didn’t know about any of this 5 years’ ago.

    Though I’m earning online, I’m yet to really earn enough to fully support myself. For now, I appreciate where it’s able to help.

    Wishing you all the best this year 🙂
