I hope you had a good November! I’m fairly certain I’ve got the flu right now so I’m doing my best to push through the week. If you see a bunch of typos in the post just bear with me, I’m doing the best I can 🙂 I’ve pretty much stayed wrapped in blankets snuggled up in the recliner with my computer on my lap this week.
Kailyn’s six birthday is Saturday so I’m hoping I feel better by then so I can take her to Chuck E. Cheese. (And btw, I ended up buying the American Girl Doll! I got her that and a couple of knock off American Girl outfits for much, much less off of Amazon. She ordered a pet and some accessories for it with her own money. She’s gonna be a happy girl come Saturday!)
Just as a reminder my income from November is what I actually got paid for. Therefore the majority of this income comes from work that was done in October. Only a small portion of this money came from work that was done in November.
I’ve worked way more over the past month than I normally do (probably close to double the hours) and you’ll start to see that reflected in my December and January income reports. Yay!
Without further ado here’s what I actually got paid for in November:
Freelance Writing and Virtual Assistant Work – $1,878.40
Blogging – $704.64
On the blogging side October is pretty slow on the ads front because my posts that do well with ads are popular from about June to September. However, since joining Elite Blog Academy my pageviews are continuing to climb at a very fast pace and you’ll see that next month my Ad earnings started to climb back up because of that!
I thought I’d break down the blogging income a little further so that I have an easy way to track that progress. Here’s how it broke down:
- Google Ad Sense – $357.57
- Yahoo Ads $211.11
- Direct Advertising – $100
- Affiliate Commissions – $35.96
P.S. If you’re interested in starting a blog too, check out How to Start a Blog for Only $12 per Year. This post walks you through setting up your own WordPress blog through GoDaddy, my favorite hosting company.
Right now I’m already fairly close to doubling the money I made from blogging versus last month. And I really owe that to EBA. If you’re a blogger (beginner or advanced) I’m telling you, you need this course!
The doors close on Friday and won’t reopen until the spring when the course will then be $100 more.
I can’t really break down the freelance payments any further because they are bundled. For example, one of my jobs is just a set weekly amount – sometimes there’s a lot of writing and other weeks there’s very little.
I’ve also got a couple other things in the works and I’m going to have to really hustle to get them done by the time I want.
I would list some goals but my head is kind of spinning right now so I’ll save those for another day 🙂
How was your November?
