Here is a breakdown of my income for July.
It was a good month for income. My online income was my best ever. Making a $1000 in a month has been a goal of mine for a while but I don’t think I’ve even made it over $800 before. One of the reasons my online income was higher in July was because I had a couple of months of affiliate income owed to me that finally arrived. Most of the increase was from the direct sale of links. There was a large increase in people contacting me wanting to purchase links on one of my sites. Most of the income was from links paid for a year upfront. There are also a couple of links that pay monthly and a couple more people I’m still negotiating with so I will still make at least a little from selling links this month. I doubt I will make a $1000 again this month but I should make at least $600 which I am pretty happy with.
Mystery shopping income will go down because I have a regular job now and won’t have as much time for mystery shopping. Some of the shops I did last month won’t pay me until this month though so I should make at least $200 from mystery shops this month.
My new job is working for a non-profit and it doesn’t pay much but it should still cause my total income to increase over last month. Although if I could count on making $1500 a month every month without a job I wouldn’t worry about a job and just concentrate on increasing my alternative sources of income. It would be nice to have all my money come from alternative income and passive income but that might take a while.
