My online income for 2009 was less then in 2008 but my income for this year is already my best ever with a few months to go. I am not really sure why I am seeing such a nice improvement in income this year but I think it is a combination of putting in more work and luck. I don’t really know a lot about making money online. I barely have enough technical knowledge to write a blog but by sticking with it I have started to get some good results.
My online income is still not quite enough to live on but it is getting close. That is why I have decided to expand my online empire. My current goal is to add one source of online income per month until the end of the year. I currently have four sites that make money. One of the sites makes very little money but it requires very little work so it is still a good deal. I also have two sites that aren’t currently making money. One of the sites hasn’t been monetized yet but I have a special monetization method in mind for it. The other site I will either sell or completely revamp.
To reach my goal of making a full-time income from my sites I have decided to launch some niche sites. I already have three blogs and I don’t have time for another one. A niche site will take quite a bit of time to launch but afterward should not require too much time. I have been taking a lot of inspiration from the niche site duel at Smart Passive Income. I already have an idea for my niche site and I will be using information I have learned from reading about the niche site duel to get the site started.
Since lots of people ask me how to make money online and I am usually not sure what to tell them I have decided to share with you the process of launching the niche site. The first update should be sometime next week. Thanks to all of you who have helped me make money online.

I’m looking forward to reading how you do it! I’ve recently started to monetize and am not yet breaking $100 a month, so any tips would be welcome!
My income is from several sites. TFM doesn’t makes most of its money from links and a little from affiliate sales. Adsense type ads don’t do well on a frugality blog. I have had to experiment and see what works and what doesn’t. You will probably have to do the same.
I’m VERY interested in what you are doing! I can’t wait to read it.
I should have an update on Friday if I’m not too lazy between now and then.
Great idea! I’ve got a few small niche sites that bring in semi-passive income with almost no work and I’m looking to expand on them as well. I’m also working on a short report explaining how I do it so I’ll be interested to see another point of view.
I’m far from an expert on these sites. I’ll be learning as I go and I’ll check out any material you have on niche sites as well.
Looking forward to reading and learning!
Same here. Stalking you appropriately to find out how to monetize my site. I make a whopping 50 cents or so a month from my site. Nice retirement fund, huh?
