Happy belated Halloween!
It’s absolutely mind blowing to think we’re now in November. But, here we are. I’m kind of glad too. It seems like the last few months of the year are the ones where I draw most of my memories from.
It makes me look forward to making some new memories with my kids.
Extra Income Challenge
I apparently decided to do the extra income challenge at a time that’s a little difficult for me. My brother has needed a lot of help with my niece as he recently became a full time single Dad. Until he finds a babysitter I’ve been that help.
While I do love having her she’s eighteen months and has been making work extremely hard. It’s like I have a little Tasmanian devil running through my house all day long. Pretty much doing anything with her is hard.
(To all you Mom’s with little ones I promise, it gets much easier when your kids get a little older. My kids are now 5 and 6. After a week straight of a toddler I now realize how easy I have it with a five and six year old at home.)
However, I have made an effort to do at least something toward the challenge every weekday. I have not hit the $200 mark each day. (I actually only made it to that amount one time so far.) Other days I’ve only managed to make it to $25.
I’m not stopping though. The past few days I’ve been using my evenings very well. I’m going to start carving out a couple hours each evening to work toward my $200/day goal.
(I’ll try and do an update next week with different things I have done. Right now I’m using a word doc to record my actions each day but am working on a printable as I’d rather write it out.)
October Income Report
My October income is down from the past few months but I am still very happy with it. After quitting my last freelance job I was worried that I’d see my income drop quite a bit, but it didn’t!
I’m hoping with the extra income challenge I can keep my income at around $5,000 per month while shoveling as much as possible into savings.
As a reminder this is the amount of money that I actually received in October.
October Online Income – $5,368.43
To break it down even further it came from:
The blogging income came from:
- Ad Networks – $2,545.69
- Affiliate Income – $1,150.74
- Sponsored Posts – $652
I hope you had a wonderful Halloween and have a great week!
