The bottom line is that there was no online income last month. I got tired of fussing with Clickworker, and as I don't have any other online income streams going at the moment, no gushing rivers of cash flowed into my bank account.
Now I do have to clarify this with two items:
1. I got a 1099 from Clickworker for my yearly earnings, which were about $1,030.00 . That's not too bad, but I'd like to increase that by a factor of 50 this year.
.... which brings me to ....
2. I'm jumping back into affiliate marketing! As explained in this article, http://buyingnirvana.com/words/novice-affiliate-part-06/ , I think I finally found a method that will work for me. I've already set up an online store called Tea Universe! ( http://tea-universe.com ) Check it out and let me know what you think!
We finally got our ridiculous debt under control. I had to sell some investments to do it, but it was worth it. Debt sucks! This also points out the value of having diversified investments. As most of you know, stocks haven't been doing great lately, but municipal bonds, of which I own a few, are currently priced at inflated values. I sold a few of these, and hammered our misbehaving Amex credit card back into submission. (Which - alas! - will probably only be temporary. Kids are expensive!)
Note that I own actual municipal bonds, NOT a municipal bond fund. It's harder to catch peaks in price like this if you own a fund. (Or so my Dad, who is "Mr. Municipal Bond Fund Investor" himself, tells me.)
May February 2016 be a prosperous month for you!
