become a billionaire family

As many of you know, I’ve been reporting my income for a little over a year now. When I started sharing my earnings with you, I was only making about $20 a month, but lately my earnings have been exceeding $3,000 each month! It’s been a crazy ride and I’m honestly not sure how I pulled it off, but I sure am glad that I took that first step and started blogging.

While I know that many of you have enjoyed my income reports, it’s time to shift the focus here at Life And My Finances. Rather than share every single dollar that flows into my account through my many sites, I’m going to share with you only the affiliate/passive income that is earned. I’m shifting my focus for a couple of reasons:

December 2011 Earnings Report

All I can say about this month is, “Ouch”. That graph is looking pretty sad. In August I had a break-through month with over $2,500 in revenue, and I have seen a slow decline ever since, which has led to an incredibly slow December (as seen by the graph above). So, what has changed? . . . → Read More: Monthly Earnings Report: December 2011

September 2011 Earnings Report

Yes, yes, I know. It looks like my earnings fell off a cliff, but I’m not worried. August was just an insanely good month, and it makes my September look like I only made pennies. But, I would say an extra $1,000 in a month is nothing to sneeze at.
