My December 2008 Monthly Income Report

Welcome to my monthly income report, where I review my income for the previous month and the activities that helped grow that income.

Editor’s Note: The content regarding eHow is no longer relevant. Please visit our Getting Started page, which we keep up to date with advice for getting started with earning money online. (Updated 10/2015)

This is the third of a series of reports that I will post each and every month summarizing my progress. I’ll first mention the major events that may have happened within the month that could have made a difference in my earnings. I will also break down the sources of my income so that I can keep track of how each one is doing. Lastly, I’ll conclude with the most important things that I learned and what I have planned for the near future. I’d love to respond to any questions or comments that you may have. Thanks!

Important Going-Ons in December

Note: Items with an empty difference percentage were not present on the previous month’s income report.

I honestly cannot believe the numbers. Another record month for which I owe to quite a few things. Besides the addition of affiliate marketing, and the successful growth of my eHow earnings (my next post is all about my eHow earnings for the month), I again owe most my success to my ebook.

Important Things I Learned in December

What’s Next

I can’t believe 2009 is already upon us. I hope you and your family had a wonderful and safe holiday season and new year.

For January, I have just a few things I want to get done. I’m less than 2 months away from my wedding, so a lot of my focus will be on that—but I will still be doing more to improve my earnings for next month.

I’m putting my podcast on hold, as I’d like to focus on that after the wedding. Hey, maybe it will be about wedding stuff or marriage—just an idea.

As far as subscribers, I’ll shoot for 150 by February 1.

Lastly, just know that my schedule of blog posts this month may be irregular because I have quite a few major things going on this month that will take me away from my computer. For instance . . . my BACHELOR PARTY! We’re going to snowboard at Lake Tahoe for 4 days and take advantage of the nearby casinos in Reno. 11 dudes shredding down a mountain—legendary.

Have a wonderful New Year, and let’s make 2009 the most profitable year for us ever!
