To paraphrase a line from the cult classic Swingers, your site is so money and you don't even know it.
My online writing and blogging revenue has grown to $6,264.81 using the variety of sources listed below, each of which I joined at varying start dates.
But I've earned only about 540 bucks since the last time I reported my online income over a month ago.
Last night the father of lies was trying to get me all discouraged over this, over the irony of getting the biggest post of my life in the same month that my writing income dropped due to several factors:
1 - An advertiser rejected the quite lovely post called "The first time ever I saw your porn..."
2 - No ghost blogging income
3 - An essay failed to reach a publisher in time for print
"What kind of idiot would stay up till 3 a.m. and work like a Hebrew slave day in and day out for only $500 a month?"
Those are the thoughts that threatened to take hold, before the Truth reminded me to continually renew my mind and see what was really going on.
I realized that beyond making any money thru online ventures, lower income numbers this month matter not when it comes to how much I LOVE blogging.
And just like Bishop Jakes has been teaching, God is repositioning me and my thinking to get away from the ancillary stuff -- not so much paid posting, etc. -- and put a laser sharp focus on growing the stuff that He's put under my control.
Watch my WatchFreeEpisodes.com
Which leads me to my latest labor love, a brand new site where people can watch full and partial episodes of TV shows and movies online for free.
WatchFreeEpisodes.com is a site the Creator has amazed me in showing me how to set up from scratch for only $23 for the first year. (More on that later...I'm still creating content up the wazoo, but right now I'm revealing it 'cause I really need the link love from me to me to get Google to crawl that puppy faster.)
Like my friend Lisa's Jericho on CBS site, mine is a site set to take advantage of the growing trend of folks wanting to watch stuff online.
The future's so bright...
...I can feel that ram about to break out the bush. There've been other things to get excited about that have happened recently.
- I finally made it into Feedburner Ad Network for this blog! See those ads at the bottom of the posts on my feed? Some of those pay up to $7 gross CPM. Around the time my blogger salaries post went viral and my Feedburner subscriber count grew above 200 and my pageviews were a couple thousand or so, I checked that "monetize" tab in Feedburner and it actually had an invite. So don't give up on this one...
- Kontera created an affiliate link. Kontera earnings are chugging along nicely even without the affiliate program as you can see below...
