Wow, this month was my best ever for earning online. Both eHow and Squidoo have their payday around the 15th of the month. For Squidoo, I made $138 which was a new high for me, plus I was paid $99 for my reward in the Summer Sunshine Contest on Squidoo. The lens that won that for me was Ramona and Beezus: from a Book to a Movie. It was a great contest and the designated charity on the lens (Room to Read) also received $99. Add my $99 to the $138 payday and my Squidoo earnings came to $237 for the month.
On eHow, I haven’t published anything since the site switched to Demand Studios for editing (over 6 months ago). The articles I wrote for that site over a two year timespan continue to earn residuals for me. The September payout was $376.49. The past four months have been fairly stagnant for my earnings on the site. To give it a boost, I should make an effort to build some backlinks for the articles. I’m not complaining, as it is quite nice to receive over $300 a month for past work.
Anyway, the total online earnings from Squidoo and eHow make a grand total of $613.49. It was my best month of online earning so far. That doesn’t even include the couple of dollars that I made from Zazzle products and Zazzle referrals.
If you’d like to see the progression of earning on Squidoo from a few dollars a month up to the current month, bookmark my lens Squidoo Payday – My Earnings Record. Check that lens around the 15th of each month to see how I’m doing. If you are a Squidoo lensmaster, there’s a duel on the lens where you can add your own earnings. It’s interesting to see how well some lensmasters are doing on the site.
