Ahhh! My earnings have dropped down to $885 and I have only myself to blame for some serious laziness. I have been blogging sort of reliably but I haven’t been doing much else. I know that I work best later at night when everyone is asleep but I’m usually too tired to think after about 10pm so I haven’t managed to be productive. I need a kick in the pants and hopefully this crappy month will scare me into doing some work.
- Google Adsense – $195 - Adsense is getting worse but I haven’t done anything about it. The good news is that so far in January, things seem to be back to normal.
- Affiliate Sales – $555 - Affiliate sales are diversifying but that doesn’t help much when my big earner takes a hit. If it’s an indicator for what lies ahead then I’ll be in trouble.
- Linkworth & Text Link Ads – $23 - I think this might be my final month for this category. TLA has been eliminated from my sites and Linkworth has cancelled their one remaining ad.
- Private Link Sales – $30 - I am riding high on my three monthly subscription payments for $10 and not much else. I have a few people to collect payment from but haven’t heard back. I think my PR for Travoholic.com has dropped to zero and many of my other sites are still stuck there. Emailing Google about this is on my agenda but, like everything else, I’ve been putting it off.
December saw a big drop in earnings but it was also the second full month in a row of doing no work at all. I have learned that being surrounded by people isn’t conducive to me being productive. I am going to attempt a late night working session tonight and see how that goes.
