Ebook Experiment Time

I’ve had an idea roaming around in my head for over a year and it wasn’t until Ken’s unfortunate AdSense situation that I realized it was time for me to stop thinking and start doing (sorry for that extremely long sentence). About Writing Books I’ve found that my book’s audience is folks who are just [...]


Happy New Year!

I tried my best to stay away from the computer during the holiday season. I was marginally successful. Anyway, it’s a new year and many of us are back with lofty goals. My goals for this year aren’t too lofty. I want to increase my income without increasing my workload. I want a sustainable writing [...]


The More Things Change…

…the more they stay the same. I’m having a full-circle moment. Many moons ago I created my online playground, Tidbits and Stuff. You guys know the story. It was a hand-coded site, then a WordPress site, then a Joomla site and now…I’m converting it back to a WordPress site. I expect the process to take [...]


November Traffic Down 17%

It’s the end of the month and time for me to look at what I did during the month and how I can improve on things going forward. In reviewing my numbers I see that my overall traffic is down. I did a quick analysis of my top 6 sites and have found an average [...]


Playing Around with AdSense

About two weeks ago I made a small change on one of my blogs. I changed one of the Google AdSense ad block size from 300×250 to 336×280. I had always shied away from large AdSense blocks because I never wanted them to take up too much of the screen real estate. However, the change [...]


My Struggle with Active vs. Passive Income

Kidgas’ comment on the recent Exceeding Minimum Wage post is the inspiration for this post. If you haven’t read his comment, please go back and do so (also, check out his Cash Flow Mantra blog – he’s got some great stuff there). His comment inspired me to back up a bit and outline my inner [...]


A Few Mouse Clicks to 62% AdSense Earnings Increase

Maybe it’s a bit early to share my latest discovery, but a few clicks in my Google AdSense interface resulted in a 62% earnings increase. If you’re an AdSense publisher, I’m sure you’re familiar with the warning atop of your AdSense account. The warning tells you that your ads are displaying on unauthorized sites. The [...]


Exceeding Minimum Wage

I finally did it! I earn more than the minimum wage! I haven’t taken a leave of my senses. I’m excited because a long time ago (March 8, 2010) I mentioned that I wanted to earn minimum wage. Although I haven’t met the goal as outlined in my earlier post, I’m on my way. While [...]


eCover Creator 3D Software

Some of you noticed that I changed the cover of my ebook from this: To what it is now (as displayed in the column to the right). Why did I Change the Cover? I realize from the popularity of the posts on this blog that people want to earn money. Some people want to learn [...]


October Earnings

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, [...]
