Money Making Report No. 2

Money Report

Welcome to the second money making report, it doesn’t seem long since I did the last one.

Still nothing to shout about, although traffic is increasing, so there is potential to earn money. Any income is a plus at this early stage. Especially since I have not put much effort in over the last month.

So my earnings so far –

Adsense

So far earned: $6.72 (approx 3.36) [+$1.14]

Received: $0

Money4Banners

So far earned: 30 (approx $60) [+5.00]

Received: 30

As you can see money4banners continues to pay. Also Adsense is till ticking over.

I am currently debating whether I should include earnings from online surveys, or whether I should keep them separate due to them not always paying in cash, vouchers being the common reward.

A post about online surveys is on the way, so I should have decided by then.

Best of luck,

Martyn

Oops! Better Time Budgeting

Budget Time

Well I hope you all had a good holiday, back at university now, apologies for the absence! I must try not to apologise in every post. Which brings me to my biggest flaw at university, my lack of time to do things I enjoy, or more importantly need to do. Probably this is down to me preferring to do things on the spur of the moment. Mind you I doubt I’m the only student who usually says yes to the offer of going to the pub! As people know TIME = MONEY, or for students TIME costs MONEY, and the fact is, the little ‘free’ time available often involves spending money for entertainment, e.g. cinema, pub, clubs, e.t.c.

Having a little extra time can save you money, an extra half hour in the evening could be used to cook a cost effective meal, rather than that expensive take-away or ready meal. Also that half hour could be used to finish that essay due in at 9am!

So what to do?

Plan, Plan, Plan ahead.

168 Hours you have each week, of which ideally you need to sleep 56 especially with exams ahead, therefore 112 Hours of usable time!

Obviously some of that is used up by work/lectures-

But you can:-

  • Get up in the morning (shock horror, students getting up on there days off, see zenhabits ideas if you need a little persuasion!)
  • Plan your meals in advance (no more thinking what shall I have for dinner, spending 10 mins thinking about it and then settling for the easy option.)
  • Set time specifically aside for work and play (sounds sensible but how many stick to it!)

Finally just remember time is like money, you always spend it, but unlike money you cannot earn it back. Just don’t cram to much in, a little relaxation (procrastination) time is always needed!

Still working on the time machine,

Martyn.

Money Making Report No. 1

So its been a little while since I started my money making mission.

Disappointing, probably sums up my progress so far, I have little to show for the time I have put in. But there is a little cash in the piggy bank. Its easy to get down about this but I’m an optimist and realistically I was not expecting to become a millionaire over night. As long as I keep posting regularly (at the moment it has had to be weekly due to other commitments and lots of work), then I will be able to create a useful resource with lots of content. Until that unknown point of time comes, I will just have to wait. Hopefully with a little patience and a bit of effort the pennies will turn into pounds.

So my earnings so far –

Adsense

So far earned: $5.58 (approx 2.29)

Received: $0

Money4Banners

So far earned: 25 (approx $50)

Received: 25

As you can see money4banners has been the most successful to date, we wait to see and hope more different sources of revenue appear in my reports. From now on I will publish my reports monthly on the second Saturday or Sunday of that month. Hopefully January’s report will make good or better reading!

Apologies in advance if posts become sporadic, I may be limited on time and internet access for 3 weeks. I will try my best to write something useful!

Best of luck,

Martyn
