April 2013 Blog Income Report

April was the start of something that I have been talking about doing for the past couple of years, I finally got my act together and started to focus more on work. The kick up the backside has been a long time coming and although it wasn’t a major increase in hours it was definitely a good place to start and it certainly showed in my income.

April Highlights

Returning to guest posting – Guest posting was something that I started to back away from because I became disillusioned with the way that posters would disappear as soon as their articles were published and would leave me to reply to comments – sometimes on subjects I am not very knowledgeable about.

But I have decided to go back to it because although it was frustrating having to reply to the comments it did bring in a nice chunk of traffic and gave the blog a bit more content.

Visitor Count & Page Impressions

The unique visitor count for April stands at 949, which is a slight decrease of 71 from the month of March.

The page impression count for April stands at 2,185, which is a decrease of 227 from the month of March.

– I fully expect the traffic to increase next month now that I’m putting more effort in and accepting guest posts.

Show Me the Money

Clicksor = $0.26 (-$0.40)
CPMFun = $0.07 (+$0.01)
CPMLeader = $1.00 (NEW)
Fidelity Media (AdJuggler) = $0.30 (+$0.01)
Forum Posting = $19.85 (-$13.81)
Freelance Writing = $492.77 (+$4.20)
Loan Repayments = $0.75 (+$0.02)
Passive Income = $17.31 (+$1.58)
PulsePoint (AdsDaq) = $0.20 (-$0.07)
Smowtion = $0.13 (-$0.02)
Sponsored Posts = $109.20 (-$68.50)
Underdog Media = $0.00 (+/-$0.00)
Yahoo Bing Network = $10.20 (+$8.84)

Total = $652.04 (+$66.70)

– An increase of over $66 after putting in a couple of hours more a week is rather encouraging.

– CPMLeader is a new network that I have been working with and they paid me last week (minimum payout is $1).

– Yahoo Bing Network seem to be a very good replacement for Adsense and in April I earnt more than I did in about 3 or 4 months with Adsense. 🙂

    • I think just focusing more and being more productive would help increase my income, I have ADHD and find my mind wanders, plus I suffer with bipolar so it makes it hard to get me to sit down and work. 🙂

  2. What you show again, as you have reported each month before are Adwordes of different varieties are not very profitable, but freelance writing is the best source of income, Work more with it.

    • The reason the ad networks are not very profitable for me is due to the amount of traffic I’m getting and where in the world the traffic is coming from. 🙂 I am certainly trying to focus more on freelance writing and sponsored posts.

  3. Congrats. I will look into the Yahoo Bing Network. Do you like it better than Adsense?

  4. Thanks for the mention!Make sure you publish another one next month and i’ll feature you again!But I want to see you higher up the board next time!!!
