Life is starting to get more sane. August was my best month so far. First, I had my best month on my blog where I earned over $2,400 for the month. You can read more about my income report here. My goal was $2,100 so I was pleased with that figure. I want to/need to grow that further as it will enable me to pay down my debt faster.
Second, I had a decent month for painting. It’s much lower than I would like, but every bit helps.
Third, my marketing business has been doing well as I now have 2 steady clients (and they both seem to be very happy) and I have another one where I’m doing a bit each month and the potential for 2 new ones to come on mid September. I’m excited about this as I need to be earning more to pay down the debt and soon I will have some added expenses that I will need to cover, so all is good.
I really feel good about some of the articles I’ve written for my clients. Here are a couple of recent articles I wrote:
- Risks for managing a vacant house on the market
- 7 Mistakes to avoid if you’re thinking about selling your house to a cash investor
- Supplies for cleaning out your parent’s house
The weather has also been great and I’ve love swimming almost every day. I’m sad that summer is coming to a close as I love it. I’m hoping I can keep the swimming up as it has been so refreshing and relaxing. Hopefully, I can keep this up. I may need to find a back up exercise plan for when it gets cooler.
On my own blog, I’ve been diversifying my content a bit so that I can create a bit of seasonal content. These are articles that will recur each year. So far, I’ve written these 2 articles:
Soon, I plan to do at least 1 (but hopefully 2) holiday/Christmas articles. Hopefully, this will bring some incremental traffic and help me create some seasonal pins for Pinterest.
