I realize I haven’t written about my income in a while. This is partly because there haven’t been any major changes and partly because I haven’t been doing too much writing.
December 2011 was my highest residual income month of $3,037. That was the first month where I snuck in the back door of the Double O Club. The membership was temporary. The following month my income dropped a bit below required $100 per day. In January I earned $2,978.52.
I got a little further away from the DOC in February with a number of $2,778.35. All in all, these are not bad numbers, but they weren’t moving in a positive direction. If the remainder of March plays out the way the first third of the month is playing, I’ll be a card-carrying member of the Double O Club, but the Internet is fickle, so we’ll wait and see.
I can’t say that I’ve totally lost interest in online writing, but it hasn’t been providing the same spark and excitement that it once did. I still write online, but am finding I need to spend much more time offline. Maybe I’m undergoing the 7-year itch two years early. Who knows?
Maybe instead of writing, it’s time for me to get back to my art supplies and draw. I’m not quite sure which direction to go, but I do know that forcing what isn’t there is not good.
I know I’m not the only online person to undergo such feelings. I’d be interested to hear from “old timers” who had to change direction for a while. It might give me the shot in the arm that I need.
