I'm a little later than usual with the report this month. The weekend threw me off and I wanted to get yesterday's Lending Club news out. It looks like I can't put off reporting my alternative income progress any longer.
For the second time in two months this income has been a bit of a disappointment. I take a little solace in that it was a short month, but even in full month, I would have ended with less money than last month. My final gains for the month were $1,837.54 (after taxes). It's still a good income, but since I spend more time to earn it, it's not the best investment I could make with my time.
Last month, I mentioned that I was looking to start two new websites. Well, I started four. Unfortunately, none of the three were ones I had planned. Three of them were paid gigs that I did for friends of friends. This is probably a good time to mention that I might be able to help you with your website. If you need some website work feel free to hit the contact button in the header of this site and send me a message.
Perhaps this month, I'll get the other websites off the ground. It's looking likely that I'll get one off the ground, but the other will take a little more time and I'm starting to lose motivation for it.
[Note: Though I still call it my alternative income, it is the majority of my current income, but not all of it. I do some freelance work that I don't include in these numbers because they are paid at an hourly wage.]
