Well folks, it's that time again! I've made a huge leap in my residual income earnings this month. In May, I made around $208 total in residuals, but I made much more this time around. Here's the break down of what I did in June:
Ehow Earnings Update
Ehow just updated and I'm proud to announce that I've made a total of $177.36! My goal was only $150, and I only wrote about 15 new articles in June, so I am VERY happy to surpass that goal by so much. My earnings increased by about $40 since the last monthly update.
I'm not making as much as I would have liked by now, but that's my own fault. I haven't been writing as much as I had hoped due to other projects, but I'm still extremely happy and impressed with my earnings so far. My goal for next month is $200 - and I'll be writing up a storm to hopefully surpass that meager goal as well. I hope to add at least 20 new articles in July.
Suite 101 Earnings Update
I am ashamed of myself on this one. I didn't write a single article for Suite in June. Why? Because I was burned out on my topic. I know that we can write on any topic we like, but I like to stick to one subject so that I may have a chance at becoming a featured writer one day. However, I am sick to death of writing on natural medicine. It's a passion in my real life, but I don't think I can write another word about it for the time being.
I have decided to go a different route with Suite, and I've chosen a new topic that I think I can write about.....well, forever. It's a topic on which I'm very knowledgable and I think I can do well there, because I don't see many other in-depth articles on the subject. So, next month I'm going to dive back in.
However, my earnings are as high as they've ever been even with my failure to submit anything new. I'm averaging about $2.00 per article per month, and I think that's fantastic. I'm very happy there and I can't wait to start writing again.
Examiner Earnings Update
This is the first month I'll be reporting my Examiner earnings. I am happy to report that they have far exceeded my expectations. I posted a total of 12 articles in June and my earnings totaled $31.38 for the month. This is much more than I made in my first month of eHow or Suite! I'm very excited about the possibilities and I love writing for Examiner. I love my topic and I thoroughly enjoy the site (except for the screwy pub tool).
If you're thinking of joining Examiner.com and you haven't yet, please consider using my referral code - 12327. It doesn't cost you anything, but it will help me out considerably. :)
Adsense Earnings Update
I finally made payout with Adsense. It's been several months, and I've seen a steady increase in earnings this month. I've had not a single day that was less than $1.25, so I'm pretty happy with that. I made close to $15o, although not all from this month! I only made around $60 this month, but it was enough to propel me to the minimum payout.
Other Residual Income
For those of you who are wondering, FireHow continues to send me regular updates on my measly one article. It made a total of $0.30 this month! I think I would seriously consider contributing more there, if there was a way to check earnings updates regularly. Until then, I'm going to hold off on submitting more articles.
Bukisa has continued to earn it's usual. I made $14.68 there this month with 29 articles, and I haven't contributed anything since March. Bukisa is a low earner compared to the other sites listed here. However, I won't complain about the extra cash every month. Eventually, I might be paid what the articles are worth. You live and learn, I suppose.
Grand Total for the Month
Here is how June is looking for me in terms of residual income. I really put very little effort into it, so I'm very happy to see some of my previous work is finally paying off.
eHow - $177.36
Suite - $35.00 (I can't reveal the exact amount, so this is an estimate.)
Examiner - $31.38
Adsense - $150.00 (Again, not an exact amount, as it's against the TOS.)
Bukisa - $14.68
Total: $408.42 (Give or take a few cents due to the rounding.)
I'm counting the entire Adsense payout, since I'll be receiving it from June's payout. Taking this into account, if I only counted what I made IN JUNE, I'd be at $318.82. This is still significantly more than I made last month in residuals, and I hope to see it continue to climb over the next few months.
How was your month? Do you have any residual income successes or failures you'd like to share?
