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.

- 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.

Top 8 Commenters
This is just my little way of saying thank you to the people who take the time to comment on this blog. Without you guys it would be just me rambling away.
- I changed it to 8 this month as that is all I had to pick from. Turning my blog to nofollow (unless you make it into this list) has put a lot of people off commenting.
