Paid Again! / Profit for the Year 2013

We got paid again, YIPEE!, although our earnings for December were more like a rounding error than a legitimate secondary source of income.  Guess I'm not ready to quit my day job yet.

PostAnyArticle  -  $1.30

FullofKnowledge  -  $1.99

ExpertsPages  -  zippo  :-(   (We need to post more articles there.)

For the year 2013, our earnings from writing comes to the grand total of:  $71.56 !!

Unfortunately, $50.62 of that came from Bubblews, who is no longer paying us.  I DO NOT recommend writing for Bubblews, because even though they pay extremely high rates, they are basically a scam site, and pay their new writers by not paying their old writers.

The best month we had from non-Bubblews sources was October 2013, when we earned an even $10.00.

And the point of all this is ....???

Writing on the internet can be fun, but I would never choose it as a career!  The guys who "make a living" online pay LOTS of attention to icky stuff like SEO, email lists, etc.  In other words, if working online is your job, then like any other job you'll have to work at it, and spend time on noxious tasks that aren't necessarily fun.  There ain't no free lunch!

Posts to PostAnyArticle, December/2013

Lots of posts to PAA in Decemeber; lots of ranting and snorting!

We started our daily, "A Day in a Year in a Life" entry, (prematurely!), so we'll probably have lots of posted articles to PAA this year!
