December 2009 Blogging Income Update: $34,394.02 from Jan. - Nov. 2009
Well, it's that time again -- thought I'd update readers (and myself) on just how much money writing online at this website and others is bringing in, in terms of moola, that is.
Gotta make sure I've got enough to give Uncle Sam come 4/15/2010 -- and I'm still playing around with the ideas my tax accountant dad is giving me to go use Intuit's Easy Pay Cycle to start paying my LLC's taxes through them, and therefore save on the $9,000 and more plunked down to the IRS in coming years.
When he started trying to explain to me the tax benefits of choosing a fiscal year end for my business that's different from the calendar year end for my personal taxes, my brain began to wander like in Analytics class or something, so I figured I'd picked that studying up again in 2010.
But anyway, thus far I've taken in $34,394.02 from January 1, 2009 - November 30, 2009.
Moving along at a good clip. Writing for Examiner.com has been the biggest online writing blessing-boon God has brought me; they are noted as Clarity Digital Group, LLC, in the breakdown of YTD income below. (People are all over the Tiger Woods' situation with his wife.)
So I suggest if you're a voracious writer and reader -- with a hankering for reading shampoo bottles when nothing else is around -- apply to Examiner.com and say Paula Mooney referred you, please to try your hand at some fast-paced news pieces. (That's what's paying off for me.)
Someone commented that I make it seem like making money online is easy. That person probably hasn't read thru my archives of the blood, sweat, tears and time I've put in online.
I'll bet you I work at least 70 hours per week on various websites, many times 7 days a week.
So this is no game. If people really want to work hard and try and make money online they can with the Lord's favor and using their time and talents. Other people just find it not worthwhile because they can make money via other 9 to 5 jobs -- and there's nothing wrong with that. As long as we are where we are supposed to be in life.
Oh yeah -- and the reason I've got a Zhu Zhu Pets pic in this post is because those suckers are selling out the ying-yang on Amazon.
