December 2008 Income 2

An update on  my attempt to carve out a meager income with my blogging so here is an update for December from Canadian Personal Finance Opinions :

  • Adsense income $51.54 with about 5000 impressions
  • Kontera income $7.84  on 4400 page impressions
  • Text Link Ads income $38.09 earn with 5 ads running out of a possible 8 (text link ads)
  • Performancing Ads $15.60 from 1 advertiser
  • Pepper Jam Ads income $0.00
  • NeverBlueAds income $0.00
  • TTZ Media income $0.00
  • Marketleverage income $0.00
  • ReviewMe review income $0.00
  • Pay Per Post income $0.00
  • Privately arranged ads income $20.00

Total income for the month of July 2008: $133.07  (up 30%)

Page rank for the site from Google: 3/10  (up 1)

Page rank for site from Alexa #597268  (down)

Number of RSS Readers from Feedburner: 420 (avg)  (same)

Again, no income from a lot of the advertising, but more income is good, my goal of $10K for the year seems a pipe dream for now, but I will work on that too.


On To Microsoft

Now that I am actually making slave wages for blogging (what is the sarcasm font), I am now applying to the Microsoft affiliate program to see whether there is even more monetization of my writings possible. Did I mention that I am a mercenary type of writer? If you haven’t figured that out, hope this doesn’t surprise you.

As I have said my new job is constricting my time available to blog, so it is harder to get new and interesting stuff out, so I am relying on my backlog of posts to pick up the slack for now, and that may be my saving grace for now too. I have written a hell of a lot of stuff, and picking out the kernels of good stuff is a good thing.
