What a Difference a Few Years Make

I’ve made reference on this blog before to my electronic journal. I started journaling in August of 2001. I use an old software called Adobe FrameMaker (version 6). It was the same software I used in my tech writing days. My journal is now over 1,100 pages. Back when I first started journaling I used [...]


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 [...]

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, [...]
