It’s February 1st, and time once again to review my alternative income progress. 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.
This month has been a disappointment. This month my income went down from $2,219.54 to $2,007.18. One of the goals of not having a day job is to increase this alternative income. My alternative income is of irregular nature, but I need to make sure that it is trending in the right direction.
As in the past, most of my alternative income has come from various websites that I run. You are reading a main contributer now. However, Lazy Man and Health has started to produce a small income. I had been making about 10 cents an hour from it, but now it’s got to be up to around $3/hr. That’s not a good return, but I’m hoping it will continue to grow.
I’m hoping that by the end of February, I’ll debut two new websites. They will require very little work, but they won’t pay much either. I would be shocked if they bring in $10 in the first month. If they combine to bring in $200/mo. by the end of the year, I’ll be a very happy man.
