How I made $993.76 from Examiner.com last month, February 2010

Turns out the month of February 2010 brought in a combined $993.76 across my three Examiner.com pages:
The National Christian TV Examiner.com page...
The National Christian Music Examiner.com page...
The Cleveland Pop Culture Examiner.com page...
What's even more interesting it the break-down of the Top 10 most-viewed articles across my Examiner.com pages, as copied below from my Google Analytics info.
As you can see, Super Bowl was a boon to me and plenty of other online writers, no doubt.
Though I've pulled back from writing like a madwoman this year, Super Bowl Sunday did find me putting up a lot of articles and taking advantage of the fact that people just love watching commercials on TV. Thusly, my Christian TV Examiner.com page brought in around $500 of the monthly Examiner.com income, and the Cleveland Pop Culture was responsible for bringing in the other approximately $500 to make up the total. (The music page only brought in 8 bucks for the month.)
So the $993.76 from Examiner is still a great addition to the $756 that Google Adsense brought in across the personal websites that I have Adsense loaded on -- though I haven't written a ton of stuff on those either, save for tracking scams and warning folks on PaulaNealMooney.com.
With Examiner, it seems like it's not necessarily as easy to get those sweet Google News spots that were easy to gain back in September 2009 when I first joined, but hitting a good topic (with a nice long video for folks to watch) and good timing and favor from the Lord can find some great pageviews sometimes.
You never know what's going to really hit with readers. Who knew that writing an article about a Doritos commercial would end up being my most-viewed post last month?
