After years of cable service with Comcast, I recently reached the tipping point where the monthly bill had become far too ridiculous for what we were receiving. Out With The Old Sure, Comcast was flexible in that you could call up to complain every six months or so and they would throw you a teaser […]

For the first time since starting these Blogging For Money updates, I failed to provide an overview last month. As much as I’d like to blame it on the craziness of returning from a family vacation and then getting caught up in the holidays, I just kept putting it off and lo and behold it […]

When Derek Semmler issued an open invitation for guest authors, I was really excited to do a post for his site. Also Derek was generous enough to say that the topic could be anything, so I wondered whether to do my usual great prices/discount post or to do one of my list posts. Then I […]


Blogging For Money :: September 2008

During the Blogging For Money update last month, I commented that my recent financial performance had been a bit like a yo-yo, up one month and down the next. Since last month had been down, one would expect that this month was up. And it was up – to the tune of my 2nd best […]

Two steps forward, one step backward. That is how I have felt lately when it comes to my efforts to blog for money. After the progress that had been made last month, I have had a small step backward in the month of August. While the total numbers may have decreased, there were some encouraging […]

Blogging For Money :: June 2008

After a taking a few steps forward the last few months, June was a disappointing step backwards in terms of blogging for money. There were two primary reasons for the drop in income this past month. The first reason was that one of my blogs was victim to a WordPress hack that was stealing the […]


Blogging For Money :: May 2008

You’ll recall that last month I had record earnings from my blogs as I surpassed the $700 per month mark for the first time. Unfortunately I lost out on a few Amazon affiliate commissions that I had been hoping to receive. After setting an earnings record, I continued to set the bar a little higher […]

Last month the challenge was made to push through my previous all-time record in terms of earnings and surpass the $700 per month mark. The tallies are in and the numbers have been calculated. Even though the Amazon affiliate program is not properly crediting my account for the commission on the sales that were made […]
