My January 2009 Monthly Income Report

Each month I publish my income, along with a summary of the activities that contribute to my income. Here is my income report for January 2009.

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 fourth 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 Goings-On in January

Another record month in pretty much all of the categories. The launch of my audio guide is what definitely boosted the numbers, and I did strike a few more private advertising deals on my website as well. eHow was being weird this month and the earnings aren’t really updating as often as they should, but I did just about the same as last month, which is expected because I did not write one single article. I was actually glad to see the numbers at least earn as much as they did the month prior for eHow.

Important Things I Learned in January

What’s Next

Well, there is one thing happening very soon that will be the biggest moment in my life so far. I’m getting married on February 21, 2009 to my wonderful fiancee, April! That’s only 19 days away!!! I’m really excited, and I’d be happy to share photos with you as they come along if you’re interested. I guess my main goal is just to survive the last few weeks of wedding planning. I apologize in advance if the blog posts become scarce this month, but I promise I will do my best to keep up the pace I’ve set so far.

For February, I have a few income related goals that I’d like to pursue:

For subscribers…I think having 600 by the end of February would be pretty awesome. Per a number of requests, I hope to implement an email subscribing feature too.

Thanks again for reading my Monthly Reports. I enjoy writing them with the purpose of teaching you what I learned, so I hope you can take away at least one tidbit of advice from me. All the best to each and every one of you.
