Over $35k paid in the first 9 months of 2010 to this writer-blogger for writing online

Over $35k paid in the first 9 months of 2010 to this writer-blogger for writing online

Since today is the last day of the month -- and September 30, 2010, brings us the last day of the quarter, it always feels like a good time to stop and count how much monies have flowed into the coffers for the first 9 months of the year.

Sounds so pregnant with possibilities, doesn't it?

Okay, judging from the numbers below -- it looks like God has sent me the miracle that is to take the lead in writing income earned online thus far. A lot of that 20 grand -- over 6k of it, in fact -- flowed to me in January 2010, which means December 2009 was a booming month for writing because of two words: Tiger Woods.

We've got two more words, or three, going on currently -- and anybody who follows my writing over there knows what they are. Praise God, my taxes are paid, I proclaim in His Son's Name. And there are more things in the works, so stay tuned for that news.

Other than that, Amazon sales held steady -- with all those Zhu Zhu Pets and Kindle sales this year and last.

Kontera kind of runs on autopilot; all I know is one post I wrote over on about how to buy a Redbox gets a lot of attention. is coming up because I joined's referral program through them. And eBay Partner Network became a noticeable contender when I began writing about different eBay auctions like the LeBron James pendant -- and sales for Miami Heat vs. Cavs game tickets going through the roof. The cool thing about that is they pay you for clicks you receive, like Adsense.

Associated Content feels like it's on autopilot too -- one of the bonuses I'm seeing now for being online so long, coming up on 5 years this December. So writers, don't give up hope if your numbers aren't looking like this yet. It takes time, and the favor of the Lord. He's right here with me, like David said.

Looks like, I hope and pray, 2010 will round out over $50k or more -- a new writing income record. Like always, the below income numbers don't reflect the expenses like advertising and such. Usually I only get that together when I'm getting my tax info to Uncle Sam. I'll share later.

Here are the numbers for monies brought in from January 1 - September 30, 2010:

AMAZON ASSOCIATES EARNINGS Total  $              4,841.28

You remain an inspiration to me as a blogger. It is still my intention to try to replicate your success with my blogging (writing?) efforts in the near future.

Stay strong and keep doin' what u do!

Hey Wayne/Villager - Do you write for Examiner already? Just curious...

Paula - I've not currently signed up with Examiner. Quite frankly, I've not proven to myself that I'm consistent enough as a blog writer to sign up for it. However, your income success makes me want to take a second look...

peace, Villager

One of my favorite features in Parade magazine is the issue where they grab a random sampling of people and report their incomes -- from the millionaires to the working poor.

Since I'm fascinated with how much money bloggers and webmasters are making nowadays, I've created a similar list -- a random sampling of people making money on the net.

The time has come.

The time is now.

Paula N. Mooney will you please publish that list now?!

(Yes, I fancy Dr. Seuss' iambic pentameter.)

My WebMaster blest me with a viral post called "Paula's List of Blogger Salaries," and the response was so wonderful, here lies an update.

It's bigger and better than ever before with more pics, and double the amount of bloggers, webmasters, domainers, affiliate marketers (or a smidgen of some or all of those titles) and their reported incomes.

How Much Do You Make?
Money is funny.

The abundance of it, the lack of it, the subject of cash in general gets attention.

While some invoke their choice not to post their online income nor discuss it at all, I've always been of the Suze Orman mindset ever since I read her first book.

Suze encourages people to talk about, compare numbers and insp…

† Tissa Godavitarne - Scam? Hoax? Or Internet Marketing Genius? Read these reviews...

UPDATE - I can't do it. Just as soon as I signed up with Tissa's people search engine, I cancelled. I just don't feel right about helping people find other people's addresses and phone numbers. AND THIS PRIVACY ISSUE IS GAINING STEAM. CHECK OUT THE CONTROVERSY BREWING OVER THE MYLIFE.COM PRIVACY SELLING ISSUES THAT TISSA USES TO PROVIDE THE PEOPLE SEARCH ENGINE INFO. I know I could probably make money with it, but it's just not sitting right with my soul. Back to the drawing board. I know better things await...

I kept trying to rationalize that many people could use the people search engines for good purposes, like reconnecting with old classmates and finding deadbeat dads and such -- but the reality is that if just one person uses them for nefarious purposes, I just don't want to be a part of that.

I wonder if Tissa would care if people found out the address of his fabulous home, and came a' knocking on his door?
