I don’t think I discussed my earnings in a while. They haven’t been too impressive, but I’ll share them with you anyway.
October was an interesting month. I’ve been a little frustrated because my earnings have been hovering a couple of hundred dollars lower than my best month.
My best residual month was March 2011, just before Panda hit the first time. In March my earnings were $2,799. Since then, I’ve had a drop and a steady increase and then a plateau followed by a bit of a decrease. October’s earnings were $2,591.
All in all that’s not bad, but I got into this online writing and residual stuff for increased earnings, not decreased. If I wanted my earnings to decrease I could have gone back to the traditional job market.
Frustration Spurs Action
You guys know that I’ve been brain storming and coming up with a host of new ideas of things to try. I could try to do more of what I have done over the past few years, but I don’t want to work harder for the same results. Besides, I’ve grown bored with what I had been doing. It’s time to switch gears.
I’ve been working online long enough to know better than to expect immediate results. I’m doing a lot of research, learning and seed planting. The best part about switching gears is that I’m excited about writing again. I had lost my Mojo for a while but I believe it’s back with a vengeance.
How was your October?
