My monthly posts giving my total online earnings have become a regular feature of Extra Cash Challenge, but over the last couple of months I have been thinking seriously about whether I should continue posting them. This is primarily because the totals have been so poor. I considered inflating my earnings so that I could portray myself as some sort of guru, but this just did not feel right.
So here are my earnings:
Paid posts: £8.44 (Smorty)
Total = £20.47
My aim of earning at least £300 per month feels a very long way away. Part of the issue is about how I use my time - the question is, do I use my limited time to concentrate on things that I know will generate income (such as surveys and Ebay) or do I concentrate on other things that are less certain (such as income from my blogs, Squidoo, affiliate marketing, etc), or do I try something else altogether? Also, part of the issue is how I count my earnings - I only count what I have actually received in my Paypal or bank account. I have continued to earn throughout the month, but have not reached payment thresholds in a number of different accounts. I have a few payments pending though.
The quest continues........
