New Years Resolution Time!!

Well, it has been a quiet week here in Green Affiliate Land. Time for reflection.
Last November I made a grand total of $13.92 - all in adsense.

This November I made about $1400.00 with adsense, advertising and affiliate sales.

December has also been a good month, but it will be interesting to see what January brings ...if money will backslide.

I'm trying to figure out my next move. I'm tempted by Stompernet. I'm tempted by the System Seminar. I want to go to the next level.

However, one of the battles I keep having in my heart is that I don't want to pollute the internet with more dreck. Does the world really need one more acne site? Even if I can squeeze out $100.00 a month on it?? (bad pun sorry)

However to not produce dreck is very very time consuming to produce the content. I'll keep you posted.

MUST SHARE: - earlier this week I was getting in that place where blogging is somewhat of a drag there's no spark, no pizazz...I wanted to quit.....know what I mean? I was thinking of how much money I could possibly sell my blogs for on DigitalPoint on and on. Then as I was looking through my stats I noticed I was getting traffic from the NEW YORK TIMES!!!

I got a link from the New York Times!! I was very jazzed. I didn't get a lot of traffic from the link (it was the day after xmas and it was in the "Times Select" which is content you have to pay for) ..but I plan to exploit the coup to my advertisers and I'm sure it will give me a bit of google-love.

Most importantly is that I am taking it as a sign to keep on keeping on!!

Happy New Year all my online money making friends!!!

That is fabulous to hear that you got a link from the New York Times... and I'm also really glad that you've not given up on affiliate marketing, 'cause I'd miss reading your adventure!

Happy New Year!

Funny how just when you are about to give up something happens to renew your faith. I had the same thing happen around the holidays - I was done, over it, finished and then I made over $600 in one day! If only it were more frequent ;)

Good luck with the New Year and good work on the NYT link - exploit it ;)!

Wow, those are some great numbers - for both of you! AND the NYT - um, WoW!

I'm glad to see you're sticking with it, too, you'll have to give us some more details on what you're doing ;)
