Progress - about $500 in October!
Much to my astonishment, my blog was working overtime while I was snoozing. Adsense started picking up, and the commissions started coming in. So I picked up the publishing pace in October, engaged in more comment trades, and I'm shocked to see from all sources I made almost $500.
About $140 from adsense, $280 from amazon (US and UK and Canada combined), $8 from shareasale, and $40 from another product.
If this multiplies even by two, it will be a considerable addition to my income. By three, and I can pay the rent with it. By ten, and I can quit my job, or at least live high on the hog!
