Regarding The Daily Updates

July 8th, 2010

Hey guys,

I’ve been thinking about this for some time….lately the daily updates have gotten pretty mundane/monotonous and I’ve been questioning whether or not this is really something I should continue doing.  Especially since the daily updates have served their purpose, I intended to update daily until I was able to reach a full time income, which I did some time ago.

Granted I had a dip in the income, but I question whether I should be updating you on a daily basis about adding 10-15 pages to a site each and every day…I also don’t want the blog to be just about checking how much money I made for the day.

I’ve done the daily updates continuously now for 427 days, and sure, I could keep going , but I just feel that the original intention has long been served.

One other thing about giving daily updates is it doesn’t give me much time to rethink and figure out additional approaches to my business as I feel a responsibility to deliver some tangible work rather than just log that I’ve been brainstorming various tactics for 1 week straight.

I’m thinking I should switch to just updating just whenever I feel there is something worth mentioning.   I’ll try not updating for a week and see how that goes…

Day 427 – Outsourcing

July 6th, 2010

A music video on making sandwiches

Today I just spent time putting together 12 articles for one of my writers to be re-written 3x each.  I’ve been getting these articles from some of my previously submitted Ezines which are all around 250 words.

Since I need the UAW submissions to be at least 375 or so words, I’ve been combining 2 of those Ezine articles to create 1 article to be sent for re-writing.  It’s easy to combine these as they are articles with bullet points, nevertheless, it does take a bit of time to do this.

So far I’ve had writing done for about 24 UAW submissions saved up, will have to use them at some point.

Aside from that, the holiday weekend is over and income is back up..

Earnings For Monday July 5th:

  • CB = $21.24
  • Adsense = $95.21
  • Total = $116.45

Day 425 – Put Up 10 Posts

July 4th, 2010

Put up 10 posts today to 2 of my sites…

I also spent some time trying to re-create that site that was giving me problems yesterday within XSite Pro, however even with me creating a completely new “Web Site” within the program, I still had the same problems…the pages were being uploaded blank, 0 KB.  I think with that site I’m just going to have to edit the html and upload it manually or something because I have no idea whats going on.

Earnings For Saturday July 3rd:

  • CB = $20.76
  • Adsense = $34.00
  • UAW sale = $26.80 (tnx :>)
  • Total = $81.56

Income is a little low this weekend due to it being a long holiday weekend..

Day 424 – 5 New Pages Added

July 3rd, 2010


I was only able to get 5 new pages put up today since I was having some weird problem with XSite Pro where when I uploaded new pages to go to an existing website, they would either end up displaying as a completely blank white screen, or it would end up destroying the theme and not displaying all the text of the article.

Not sure what that’s all about or if it’s only local to that 1 site, but I may have to completely re-create that site from scratch.

Anyway, not much else to report today, I continue to get content from 2 solid writers, a re-writer and a regular writer, a lot of the others I brought on I’ve had to let go (just let go of another person today…).

Earnings For Friday July 2nd:

  • CB = $16.61
  • Adsense = $61.21
  • XFactor sale = $30.80 (tnx :>)
  • UAW sale = $26.80 (tnx :>)
  • Total = $135.42

Day 422 – 12 Pages Up + End Of June Totals

July 1st, 2010

Whassup my ninja?

Just put another 12 pages up on my sites..

I also had to let go of a few people but at the same time I hired on a few more, so we’ll see if I can get a few more people submitting content on a regular basis.

Before I get into the totals for June, here were the totals for the 30th:

  • CB = $53.09
  • Adsense = $70.20
  • 2 UAW sales = $53.60 (tnx :>)
  • Total = $176.89

Now here’s a look at the monthly totals for June:

Adsense = $2,142.73 ($3,589.04 last month, decrease of $1,446.31) ~40% decrease
CB = $724.55 GROSS ($1,203.08 last month, decrease of $478.53) ~40% decrease
CB = $674.72 NET ($1,040.56 last month, decrease of $365.84)
Hops = 5,357 (7,362 last month)
Gross Sales = 31 (52 last month)
Net Sales = 28 (46 last month)
Refunds = 3 totaling $49.83 (6 last month totaling $162.52)
15 UAW sales/renewals = $402.00
1 BLS sale/renewal = $29.10
Human Rewriter = $148.40 (tnx :>)
eBay = $9.94 CAN ($9.37 US)

Grand Total = $3,406.32 ($5,201.93 last month)

So, about 1.8k less than last month, that was the bottom line of the whole Mayday fiasco for me…Good thing things are picking back up a bit though.
