October Earnings

Life never seems to stop throwing me curve balls, and this month a major event happened that prevented me from accomplishing my writing goals. On October 16th, I found out I'm pregnant! Joyous though I am, it has seriously hindered my writing progress as I battle intense morning sickness and fatigue. Here are the stats!

eHow- $20.17 (no new added articles)
Examiner- $1.55 (pathetic, I know)
Demand Studios- $142.50
Google Adsense- $0.44
Suite 101- $11.76
Private Clients- $0.00
Total= $176.42

Though I am tempted to think of October as a loss, I know that I did the best I could considering the circumstances. With the upcoming month looming darkly of more morning sickness, I know I have to find a way to get around it. November is also NaNoWriMo, which I am eagerly attempting, but my goal will probably be less than the required 50,000 words since I am not feeling well. But who knows? Perhaps the nausea and vomiting will end early! We can certainly keep our fingers crossed!

On the brighter side, my Suite 101 earnings are really taking off. With just 13 articles, I have already made over $25. Each month my earnings increase nicely. My eHow earnings are also increasing, even with little productivity. I've noticed that the articles I have written in the past 2-3 months are earning the most. I think my researching has a bit to do with this!

I wrote 3-4 articles for examiner this month with little response. I am so disappointed in this site it is not even funny. I am currently only $1.65 away from payout, so hopefully I can quit after that. With such a low low pay rate, I think it's ridiculous that the payout is $25.

Next month my student loans enter repayment, so morning sickness or not, I need to try and make around $150 at least at DS. I think that is a reasonable goal!

How did you fare the month of October?


  1. Congrats on the new addition! I think I will try and apply for DS myself. It seems that there is a lot of earning potential there despite some complaints I've heard on other blogs. Thanks for all the great information you provide!

  2. First of all, congratulations! I hope you can get through the morning sickness. My wife did well with vitamin B6 and Benadryl but I would only use if you are really bad off.

    I managed to make $70 for the month of October between eHow and AdSense. I am working to build up residual income and hope that November will see additional improvement though things are starting out slowly.

  3. Congratulations on the baby. I am new to your blog and to demand studios. My student loans are also coming into repayment and I am writing to pay them. Great blog! Keep up the good work.
