Wow, it’s the middle of June and I haven’t posted my May numbers. How have things been going? Well, my income has been declining steadily.
Am I upset? Well, sort of yes and sort of no. I know that if I spent the time figuring out how to stop the decline, I most probably would reverse it and reach my prior monthly income. The crucial part of that statement is “if I spent the time.”
As things stand now, I’d rather spend my time doing other things.
Last month, I earned $1,771.13. While that’s not too bad for 100% residual income, it’s a big drop from my March high of $3,237.49.
When I analyze my numbers further, I really can’t complain because my per article earnings (derived by dividing monthly income by number of posts written) for the month of May was $104.17. That means I wrote 17 articles.
Actually that number is misleading because of the 17 posts, 7 were placed on non-income producing sites. The other 10 were placed on low-income producing sites. I’ve got a bunch of sites that don’t really make much money at all, but they’re a lot of fun to write for.
My average daily residual income, however, dropped to $57.24 per day. A far cry from when I was in the Double O Club.
The way I see it, unless I do something different, my income will continue to decline (although Ignatius offered a great tip on how to stop the blood letting).
There is a silver lining, though. It looks like my Suite 101 income is starting to improve. No, it’s not back to the high of $600 as it was a couple of years ago, but it’s not at the January 2012 low of $35.
Maybe when the summer is over, I’ll spend more time online. Right now, I’d rather be outdoors and away from the computer.
I hope your income isn’t taking the beating that mine has. Until next time…
