Have you ever wondered if this site makes any money? And if it does, how much does it bring in each month? It has been quite a long time since I have done an income report, but it is a goal of mine to make this site more passive, so I thought it would be a good idea to be transparent about the passive income earnings that are made on this site. Hopefully, since this is a new focus of mine, it will continue to grow and make these reports a little more interesting!
Google AdSense Income
Ever since this site began, I have been using Google AdSense to earn a little money on the side. The first couple months produced almost no money, but I have consistently been updating and altering the structure of the site to make it more conducive to earnings. This month was a pretty good one for me and the numbers came in at $116.50.
Currently, the only affiliate income I have set up is through iPage, HostGator, and Bluehost, which are all webhosting sites where you can create a blog. If anyone clicks on my links and uses their services, then I get a cut of their earnings at no additional cost to the buyer. This month has attracted quite a few clicks, but no one signed up for a site, so my earnings were $0.00.
In order to increase my affiliate income in the future, I plan to reach out to some of my blogger friends and see what products were both a benefit to their readers and made them a healthy income at the same time. Also, I’ll most likely try to earn some affiliate income through Amazon.com as well. I can promote books that I believe in and earn a cut of the sale as well. Stay tuned next month for more updates!

My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.
