Income Report October 2012 – Passive not Free Income

by Ade on November 21, 2012

One of the things I do on this blog is to disclose my monthly online income and share the things I learnt and my activities  for the month. October was a bit slower than September with regards to income and I did not do a lot of work.

My Family

Passive Income is not FREE Income!– If you were thinking that passive income is money you get for doing practically nothing, then you are in for a big shock. Over the last four months that I have been exploring the idea of earning passive income online, I have come to realize that the reason why passive income is sweet is not because you don’t work but because you work really hard once and you keep earning for a long time. I have been working hard on my websites and this blog but one can hardly see the results. I know that if I had more hours to invest, I would have better and faster results and the greatest challenge is really to keep going regardless of the seemingly little result.

On a Personal Note– Having a young family is a great blessing but it can be an hindrance to blogging. I am enjoying our boys and I won’t exchange this time of their lives for anything else. However when I get home from work, there is only one thing I can do before they go to bed at sometime between 8:30 and 9:00pm – Play with them. The truth of the matter is that having a happy home is priceless. Why would I want to make money and not have people to share it with?

Here is the breakdown of my income for October 2012

  • All previous websites (Google AdSense) – $785.21
  • Sales of Ebooks connected to previous niche – $29.67
  • L Niche Website (Google AdSense) -$20.10
  • EPI (This Site)   – $0
  • Love and Relationship -$0
  • African Reflection -$0
  • Infobarell -$0.02

Total Income for October – $834.98 (difference from Sept -$13.28)

Progress Report:

I am happy that my L-Niche website has started to make over $20 per month. This website is connected to my previous website but over 85% of the visits (6,300) were as a result of a Google search. The website has only two pages – an “about” page and a page of my content. I really did not know what was responsible for the sudden increase in AdSense income from July($0.59) to September($18.26) until I took a look at the traffic sources using Google Analytic. Needless to say, my goal for the rest of this month is to increase the number of pages from one to ten pages.
