Uh oh… that month has come where my earnings start to slip and I start to fret and worry that everything will come crashing down around me. I earning $3,174 in February which is my lowest month in over two years! I was at around the same place in February 2011… scary. But, I had a crappy month this past August and then broke the $11,000 mark a couple of months later. So, one thing I know, is that this business is pretty unpredictable. I have a $1,200 payment pending for February and the British pound is very weak against the dollar at the moment which makes everything just a little bit worse.
- Adsense — $226 – Lowest month in awhile. Has anyone noticed the quality of Adsense ads has fallen drastically in the past few months? I feel like I’m seeing a lot of ‘look younger’ and ‘lose belly fat’ type ads on my pages. I wonder if people are moving their ad campaigns over to Facebook. I know I’m using Facebook ads… although I’ve never tried Adsense.
- Affiliate sales — $45 – Blah again.
- Advertising — $2,868 – Pretty quiet this month on the paid posts and links front. I turned down a few offers that I felt weren’t offering enough and I’ve still got a few payments to collect for link renewals, but they’ll all roll over into March.
- Ebook Sales — $35 – Five sales.
