A quick tally of my May residual income, most of which comes from a pets-themed website and a home and family blog:

  • Google Adsense: $422.34
  • Clickbank $175.14
  • Amazon: $85.42
  • Demand Media $79.96
  • Wealthy Affiliate: $40.00
  • ebay Partner $14.82
  • ShareASale $13.65
  • Squidoo $9.92

TOTAL $841.25

This was lower than the previous month -- April 2012 -- thanks in part to Google changes (Penguin) and the seasonality of my pets-themed site -- its best months are Feb.-April every year.

Now it's June and I'm working to bring my income back up to $5,000 a month -- follow along with me and I'll share what I learn along the way!

This is definitely great motivation since my online income for May was around $6 or so :) $5,000 is a great goal, and it sounds like you're taking all the right steps to make it happen, especially looking for new opportunities for some more consistent year-round income! Here's to making June (or maybe July-August) even bigger!
