My April Earnings!

I thought it would be fun to share what I earned online and off each month. I hope that we can watch it grow each month. April was a rough month for me....I didn't get to blog nearly as much as I wanted and started the month off doing really well with it. I got sick just after Easter which then turned into bronchitis and then swollen glands. Still taking allergy medicine and finally starting to feel better. I am really hoping for a better May as I totally need it after spending 3 weeks sick in April! It's also my favorite time of the year...the kids are almost done with school, it's time to start working in the yard and getting my plants and flowers going.
I have really enjoyed blogging and writing for ehow these past two months and look forward to doing this daily in May as well.
Anyway, here is a break down of my April earnings:
Childcare (part time) $200
Ebay Sales (after fee's) $226.71
Swagbucks Target Gift Card $20
Ehow Articles $15.52

Total for April $462.23

I hope to increase my ehow and blog earnings as the months go by as I get new content and new articles up. I am also exploring other internet writing venues as I have enjoyed this so far. I have signed up with Bukisa, Hub Pages and Associated Content. I don't expect this to come over night however, with persistence and continually adding new content, I do hope to make a fair side income from these sources. My sister just informed me that her company will soon be going to 7 day work weeks (Great in this economy for those workers!) that means she will need me to watch my nephew more often for her, so I will be making a little more in the child care column.

It is possible to make money from home with persistence and creativity. This was a slow month for me. Normally I average $400 a month on ebay after fee's but didn't list as often due to my illness this month. I also fully expect my earnings from ehow and other sites to increase in time.
So keep following and reading and I hope to report new ways to earn money from home each month.
Thanks for following my blog!


  1. Thanks for posting this. I started blogging a little over a month ago and would like to earn money doing this just waiting for things to kick in.
    I hope you feel better this month. My family seems to get sick in the spring and summer as opposed to winter.

  2. Yay you I would love to make even that amount per month! I have pretty much given up on ebay. I do hope you get to feeling better.

  3. What do you sell on ebay?
    I started blogging in September and just received my first big check last month. It takes time to build a blog, but I'm having fun doing it.

  4. Just wanted to say Hi! I found you via the Mom Bloggers Club Follow Me Group. I am now following you! Stop by my site when the get the chance! I also have a lot of giveaways going on!

  5. Hi Nicole,
    I sell the clothes my kids have outgrown and items around the house as well as kids clothing that I make. A good month is $1000 but lately it's been very very slow so I am happy to make anything.

  6. Following you from the MBC Follow Me Club. Happy Mother's Day!

  8. Hi,
    I'm following from MBC! Good for you on the earnings--it does take time, and you have to keep at it. But eventually it starts to happen...and being a part of MBC is a great way to help--there are some good resources there, too. Good luck!
