December 2008 proved to be a banner month in my quest to figure out if blogs can be profitable. I employ a very limited selection of revenue streams on my blog. I currently utilize Adsense for content, Adsense for Search, and direct advertisement sales. In Dec. these efforts yielded the following results:
Adsense for Content…about $75.00 in revenue
Adsense for Search…about $50.00 in revenue
Private Ads…exactly $50.00 in revenue
Total December blogging income…$175.00
I’m pretty pleased with these results as I truly blog for fun. That being said, I’m an entrepreneur at heart, so I love the business aspect of conquering the Internet. I will continue down the path of slow and steady to win the race, and will grow my knowledge of all things “interweb” as you must remember that I started with NO KNOWLEDGE of these things several months ago. Hopefully I can report $300 in income for Jan. I’m looking for 2009 to be a big year.
Blessings! And big thanks to all my friends and commentors. You truly make blogging alot more fun.
