December 2013 Blog Income Report

December 2013 Blog Income Report

Every month since November 2007 I have written an income report which documents all the methods I have used to make money over the past month, I do this because I want to help people to make money online like I do and believe that showing people what I earn is the best way to get them interested and inspired to try it themselves. Unlike other blogs I will list EVERY method that pays me, whether it is big Bucks or only a couple of Cents.

When I first started this I made just over $5 in my first month, now although I don’t put in as many hours as I should I am making $1,000+ in what could be considered “spare time”.

Visitor Count & Page Impressions

The unique visitor count for December stands at 42,447, which is a massive decrease of 24,793 from the month of November.

The page impression count for December stands at 103,660, which is a huge decrease of 125,692 from the month of November.

- I’m not shocked that the traffic has plummeted as it has because traffic is always down during December for this blog.

CPMFun = $0.04 (-$0.03)
Fidelity Media (AdJuggler) = $2.91 (+$0.78)

- I removed CPMLeader from my list because they don’t have a traffic report feature and it is a monthly headache calculating their amount.

- Very pleased to see my income has pushed past $1000 again, I got a bit lucky this month as some people who owed me for freelance writing work finally came through with the payments.

  1. Great website. I look forward to following your freelancing journey. I ran across your site from a fellow blogger friends mention of you on her blog. I see you make most of your money writing like myself. However, I am going to check out some of your other avenues and see how they work for me. Good luck in 2014.

  2. Always interesting to read your monthly report, it is possible that we could be seeing a total annual report for the whole of 2013, it would have been interesting.

    • Hopefully when my music project gets underway I’ll be able to devote more time to my blogs.

      I have slowed down on the sponsored posts, due to me being busy with my music project, but seeing as my first gig in at the end of February the blog should be back to normal soon.

  4. Great to see that you broke $1,000 even though you had a big drop in traffic! Let’s hope that traffic jumps back up this month so you do even better.

    How much time do you spend updating the blog nowadays? Do you spend much promoting it, or is it pretty self-sustaining now?

    • I spend hardly anytime on the blog due to my music project that I’m working on, but the bulk of the freelance money I have earnt is from clients who have owned me for a couple of months.

  5. Hi Dean, I think you are lucky to have earned more than a grand even after knowing the fact that traffic is always low in the last month of the year. I guess the quality of your work compensates for any other shortcoming that may be coming up in the way of your business.

    • I should out that I have been fortunate that some of the clients who owed me money for work I completed months ago have finally started paying up. :)

      Hopefully business will return to normal by the end of the month.

  6. I think it should necessary for any business if you want to get benefit through your business there is need to get information about your business status it is increasing or decreasing mode !!

  7. It does not depend on the traffic you get for a particular month on your monthly income. After one stage a fixed amont will come to you irrespective of the visitors coming on your website. It is that your image is maintained among people and this much amount comes because of your that image.

  8. Good to see you making good money from freelance writing man. Keep up the good work!
