It’s been a little over three months since I started tracking my alternative income. Last month, I had noted that I went backward a small bit as my blogging income can be volatile. This month, I’ve seen the reverse, a big jump forward. The $71.49 that I earned is enough to pay for my cable television, Internet access, heat, and electricity – and still get a McDonald’s double cheeseburger.
The biggest contributor is Google actually giving Lazy Man and Money a publically viewable PageRank. It’s not really important to understand the details of what that is, other than it means Google has vetted me which is huge in the eyes of potential advertisers. I also had a fair amount of Prosper loans finally get approved while adding more new ones. The result you see is a combination of these two factors.
I’m particularly happy with these results considering that I made a $4000 deposit for my 2006 Roth IRA. I’m not putting every egg in this alternative income basket.
