May 2010 Residual Internet Income

May was interesting.  I actually did a good bit of writing but mostly for DemandStudios fixed price articles.  But that isn’t really what I’m after, although the cash is nice.  I had signed up for InfoBarrel before eHow shutdown their WCP so have started really writing there to try to build my residual income.  When I get more details I may change the Adsense row in the table to more specifics, so far I haven’t actually earned anything from InfoBarrel, but I only had 2 articles up until a couple days ago.

The interesting part about May was the eHow earnings, they were at a monthly best.  I have been adding some backlinks to the articles so don’t know if that was why or if the articles are aging in the search engines.

June 2009 Microstock Earnings

I made a little money in June, but it wasn’t much so I haven’t even bothered pulling them together.  I am finally uploading some again so hopefully I’ll have some approved and get things rolling again.

Microstock Earnings May 2009

I suppose I’m taking a slight risk posting this before the actual end of the month, but I’m willing to take that chance.  I’ll update the post if I actually get a Sunday download.

It’s now been two months since I’ve done any uploading of images.  I’m actually really getting the itch to get back to uploading, just don’t have much time right now.  The reason I want to get more pictures uploaded is because I’m really starting to see the financial effect a large, high quality microstock portfolio can have for me.  Although I can’t really say my portfolio is large or high quality.

Microstock Earnings January 2009

January has been an interesting month.  It started out with better downloads and a renewed commitment from me to keep more pictures uploaded consistently.  I did pretty good for about a week!  Actually I’m still trying to get into a routine of regularly shooting and uploading.  My goal is to ten a week, but I’ve really only done that one week in January.

We just got back from a long weekend where I was doing a bunch of shooting.  The down side is that it was at the beach and those shots are tough to get approved and selling.  I doubt I came up with anything real original.

I did add another agency this past month, BigStockphoto, and I’ve actually had a couple downloads already.

I’m glad to see I kept my average the same while adding a new site.

Here’s a couple other blogs I follow that report their earnings:
