February Wrap Up

Like I said in an earlier post this month did go down.  I earned about $2350 for the month.  That was a big drop from the close to $4000 last month.  I think I figured out what I did wrong, and have fixed it.  Actually, it was my attempt to manipulate the the user experience.  So I stopped that for now.  I also removed all the external javascript stuff (adsense, g+, etc… to try and speed things up).  We will see how that affects things. for March.

I posted another money article on site 2 yesterday, and I have one ready for site 1 that I will publish today.  I also pushed out quite a few blog type posts on both sites.

I think site 2 will start to earn ($100+/mo), in April/May.  I have to push hard to get it to that, but that is what I am thinking now.

I think I am going to reverse my stance on Blog Networks.  I think I am going to start adding some in the mix.  The goal for March is $3000+ with $40 coming from site 2.

This month I bought a new video camera, and a bunch of stuff for review on site 2.  Next month (or possibly later this month) I am going to get a new wireless microphone.  Oh, and I plan on doing a *ton* of amazon reviews this month (in the hopes of becoming a vine member).

Things I need to work on

This month looks to be a pretty bad month for income.  A couple of things I have done: I turned off Adsense on my main site, as well as all the sharing plugins, and google badge stuff.  This has made the site much faster, and I think that is … [Continue reading]

January Update

I had the best month ever.  I just don't feel like I have done enough.  I am also only really earning off of one site.  I really want to change that. I bought a subscription to the dominator underground and I like a lot of the stuff I am learning … [Continue reading]

Published a new Money Site

OK, published may be a little big of a word.  The site only has 1 post so far - the homepage.  But, the point is that it is published.  I did that yesterday.  This is a site that I had started working on a while ago, before I decided to switch to … [Continue reading]

Social Marketing

I am going to try being more pro-social media.  I just ordered 180 retweets and 60 favorites for one of my posts.  Lets see how that works. Oh, and I also added a bookmark on socialadr and facebook campaign for the same link.  Hopefully that isn't … [Continue reading]
