March 2010 Internet Income

I’m going to work on getting back in the habit of posting my Internet Income on my blog.  Notice I didn’t say just Microstock, like I was doing before.  I’ve been working on getting some other internet earnings.  Currently eHow is really the only one to speak of I’m going to keep working.

A review of 2009 for Driftless Ramblings

I didn’t do too much to advance the exposure of Driftless Ramblings.  I did a little bit with adding to my microstock photography portfolios but not really consistently like I had hoped.  My portfolios have been earning slowly but making payouts are still pretty elusive.  I got two in 2009, one from Fotolia and one from Shutterstock.  Like to get my portfolio built up to the point where I can be getting a payout about every month or so.  All the different sites combined earn me about $10 per month, it’s just a matter of getting them to the payout threshhold.

My venture into writing for ehow.com has been going pretty good.  I’ve been earning as much there as from my microstock sites.  The ehow.com writing also gives me some backlinks to some various sites as I’m trying to get some affiliate marketing going.  As a matter of fact I have just received my first payout from ehow.com, $12.27, not much but hopefully I can keep it growing.

Microstock Earnings April 2009

Did not get many pictures uploaded this month.  My earnings were actually better this month with some activity finally picking up at IStockPhoto.  I’m actually starting to get close to a pay out on a couple of the sites.  It’s only taken me about two years.

Microstock Earnings February 2009

I had a 30% increase in microstock earnings from January to February!  Mathematically that’s an accurate statement, the reality is that my numbers are still too small to make any assumption from that,I went from under $10 to just over $13.  Wah Huh!  Sorry, I’m in a bit of a sarcastic mood.

My experiment on rf123 doesn’t really seem to have worked.  The ones I donated to get downloaded several times, but I was hoping for some action on some of the similar ones.  And BigStockPhoto didn’t do anything in  February, like I had hoped it would after it’s good start.

When it comes right down to it, I had fun doing it and what ever money I make is a nice extra. Although that doesn’t mean I don’t plan to keep working at it and setting some goals although my 10/week is already shot.
