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 Examiner.com 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 PaulaNealMooney.com about how to buy a Redbox gets a lot of attention.

CJ.com is coming up because I joined Examiner.com'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...

Villager said...

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

Paula,

I checked out your examiner posts and they really need not be too long? just 3 or 4 para should do fine. But it needs to be interesting .. any other writing tips that you can offer
