Earnings for June 2017

A dollar sign.This is a summary of the income, both received and accumulated, that was earned during June 2017.

The earnings are divided into two main categories, Accumulated and Received. Accumulated earnings also detail any payments received from that category during the month. Earnings are then further broken down into the areas from which the earnings were made. Earnings for the previous month follow the current month’s revenue in brackets.

For a full breakdown of writing related progress and earnings, see the complete article here.

Most of the work done during the month was related to articles, and any associated affiliate programmes, rather than other sources.

RedGage earnings are, as has been the standard for some time, still missing.

Fizzy is still not earning anything, and whether or not the outstanding earnings will ever be paid is still open to question.

Amazon US earnings increased, but Amazon UK dropped to zero.

InfoBarrel earnings continue to be unbelievably poor and the owners continue to have absolutely no interest in running the site.

Earnings from the role playing game supplements increased quite a lot from the previous month. No One Book Shelf sales, but there were a couple of substantial buys at the beginning of the month.

Slice the Pie made some more, minor earnings.

My Writing Progress Report for June 2017

Notebook and PenIn June I published 29 articles on the general site (28,140 words), 16 articles on the science fiction site (9,723 words), 4 role playing game supplements (11,138 words), 2 blog posts (1,426 words) and 1 article on bitLanders (803 words).

The total number of words written in June was 61,442, up a bit from May.

Writing Related Earnings for June

A dollar sign.AdSense income for June was £5.78, up a lot from May. The general site for the first time made the largest amount of money, followed by the electronics site with some minor income from the science fiction site. AdSense income as a whole was up although YouTube was slightly down.

Earnings from Tier 1 and Tier 2 ads on InfoBarrel were $15.38. This hasn’t been ‘finalised’ yet so it’s uncertain how ‘accurate’ this is. The quotes are because I don’t believe the earnings as listed have been accurate in over a year now. Having income fall by two thirds between one month and the next, even though views have gone up, just doesn’t seem plausible. A long term declining trend, yes; falling off a cliff overnight, no. Not that the owners give a damn about the site any longer.

There were affiliate earnings of $6.90 from RPGNow. I can’t tell where the income definitely came from, as there isn’t any way of tracking that. The sales might be from InfoBarrel, as one of the products sold does have a review of it published on InfoBarrel and this article was viewed in the right time frame.

Amazon

Amazon US income was $26.88, up from the previous month, with 19 items shipped, including two that had been ordered the previous month. All of the income came from the electronics site. There were no earnings from Amazon UK in June, down quite a lot from the previous month, but Amazon UK does tend to fluctuate a lot.

eBooks

I published the four role playing game supplements mentioned earlier on RPGNow in June. Two of these I consider to be better quality supplements; other two, which were also published in a bundle containing them, are much slower to earn.

June got off to a good start with a single sale of, I think, 60 supplements to one purchaser, the largest to date meaning that the big sale from May was only the biggest sale for a few days at most, which was then followed by another purchase of the same size only a couple of days later. The total income was $297.87 after RPGNow’s cut, from 424 sales across 117 supplements, the third highest month to date and the only two months which have been higher were both due to sitewide sales during those months.

Once again, nothing to report from Kindle.

Niche Sites

Nothing new was published on the electronics site this month, although I did do some writing for the site. The site earned all of the Amazon income, as is common, but for the first time fell behind the general site in terms of AdSense income, although it still accounted for a significant proportion of it.

I moved another four articles into the new structure on the clothing site. I am still not progressing with the site anywhere near as quickly as I would like to.

As well as the 16 articles mentioned earlier, I published 44 posts on the science fiction site, which earned a minor amount of AdSense income as well as 11 cents from Infolinks.

I published four posts and five pages on the RPG site, but there were no sales or affiliate earnings from it.

Once again, there was no progress with the writing site.

General

I published the 29 articles mentioned earlier on the site during the month. AdSense income is gradually staring to build, with it actually being the biggest earner in June, although this seems unlikely to last yet. It also earned 5 cents from Infolinks.

Quite a lot of content that would once have been posted on InfoBarrel has been added to the site now, including material that has been ready for many months. It is unlikely that I will be able to keep up the current rate of publication for much longer as I have used quite a few articles already that were originally intended for InfoBarrel and maintaining an output of nearly one article a day isn’t always possible; for one thing, research can take up some time.

myLot

I made 34 posts on myLot which earned $1.11, up from May. I have not been spending much time on the site recently as I have far too many other projects underway at the moment, which will be better earners in the long run.

bitLanders

As well as the article mentioned earlier I published 31 microblogs on bitLanders.

Plans for July

Although I have many in progress role playing game supplements, not many are nearly ready to publish. Consequently, in July, I think that there’s a good chance I will need to publish some stock art rather than something written, as I have a lot of stock art items ready. I will also be looking into hiring a writer for my first purchased supplement.

The clothing site still needs the restructuring finishing and new content writing and adding. That really isn’t progressing as fast as it should.

My Writing Progress Report for May 2017

Notebook and PenIn May I published 28 articles on the general site (17,674 words), 18 articles on the science fiction site (10,554 words), 11 articles on the electronics site (6,220 words), 4 role playing game supplements (12,597 words), 2 blog posts (1,504 words) and 1 bitLanders article (487 words).

The total number of words written in May was 59,054, up a bit from April.

Writing Related Earnings for May

A dollar sign.AdSense income for May was £2.16, up quite a bit from April. The earnings primarily came from the electronics site but both the general site and the science fiction site had significant fractions. AdSense income as a whole, including YouTube income, was up.

Earnings from Tier 1 and Tier 2 on InfoBarrel were $19.04, up from last month but they are still not believable. The site continues to suffer from the almost total lack of interest in it on the part of its owners, with broken functionality left that way for months. As well as the Tier 1 and Tier 2 income, there were also some minor Amazon US earnings. Having to move all the articles from the site when it folds is still looking highly likely.

Amazon

Amazon US income was $23.28, down from last month, with 11 dispatched items and one bounty. The majority of the income came from the electronics site, but there were also some minor earnings from InfoBarrel. There were also a couple of sales that weren’t dispatched before the month end. Amazon UK earned £8.62 from 9 dispatched items, up from last month, and all from the electronics site.

eBooks

I published the four role playing game supplements mentioned earlier on RPGNow in May. None of these were of the truly better kind but most were above average, and were priced higher than such used to be.

There were 327 sales across 96 supplements earning $233.70, up a lot from April and the fourth highest month to date, partly due to a sale of, I think, 57 supplements to one customer, which would be the largest single sale to date in terms of numbers and included a lot of the more expensive supplements, not just the cheaper ones.

There were no earnings or progress with Kindle ebooks this month.

Niche Sites

As well as the eleven articles mentioned earlier I published 11 posts on the electronics site. The site as usual earned most of the Amazon income and the largest percentage of the AdSense income, although the latter was a lower percentage than has been the case due to better performance from the general and science fiction sites.

I made some more progress on the clothing site, moving nine articles into the new site structure, although I am still not progressing as fast as I would like, or should, and haven’t made much progress on creating new content for the site. The site didn’t earn anything again.

As well as the 18 articles mentioned earlier I published 44 posts on the science fiction site. Once again, the latter are mostly former Bubblews posts that have been slightly tweaked and expanded. The site had the best month from AdSense to date, coming second after the electronics site. In terms of content, it probably has the second highest word count currently, after the electronics site, although the general site is catching up.

There were 5 posts and 5 pages published on the RPG site, and it earned nothing during the month nor did it appear to sell any supplements.

Again, nothing new to report on the writing site.

myLot

I published 35 posts on myLot and earned $0.88, down from April and the lowest for some time. This has largely been due to decreased activity and spending my time on projects that are more valuable, with the result that less time has been spent on myLot.

bitLanders

As well as the 2 articles I mentioned earlier I also published 30 microblogs.

General

I published the 28 articles mentioned earlier on the general site which had a more noticeable amount of AdSense income this month, the third highest. AdSense and other income is still proving to be rather erratic. The amount of content, as measured by word count, is catching up with the science fiction site, although not as fast as it could due to the larger number of longer articles being published on the latter currently, not just former short Bubblews posts.

Plans for June

I am still struggling to keep ahead with the role playing game supplements. I’m just managing at the moment, but I have a lot of in progress work that is either not progressing as fast as I’d like or that is simply stuck. I just have enough prepared to take me through to the end of June, but a couple of these are of a type that don’t generate income very fast. I haven’t yet needed to fall back on publishing graphical supplements to maintain the weekly schedule but it’s been close few times. Work is progressing on some collaborative role playing game supplements, although it’s not expected to start releasing them for a few months.

I am continuing with the restructuring of the clothing site, although I really should progress faster on this, especially as I also need to create and add new content. The general site has been getting a lot of content and still has plenty of content that was originally intended to be published on InfoBarrel. Most of the content is currently on a limited number of subjects, with reviews of role playing game supplements being by far the greatest.

My Writing Progress Report for April 2017

Notebook and PenIn April I published 26 articles on the general site (18,918 words), 15 articles on the science fiction site (8,346 words), 6 articles on the electronics site (3,069 words), 5 role playing game supplements (9,311 words), 2 blog posts (1,545 words) and an article on the RPG site (344 words). Once again nothing was published on InfoBarrel; the owners did make a single post for the first time in many weeks, but it’s clear that the site is no longer of any importance or interest to them.

The total number of words written in April was 57,158, up a bit from March.

Writing Related Earnings for April

A dollar sign.AdSense income for April was £1.33, down a lot from March. As always, the majority of the income came from the electronics site, but DailyTwoCents had some minor earnings, the first time in a while, and there were also small amounts from HubPages and the general site. AdSense income as a whole, including YouTube income, was down, although the latter only slightly.

Earnings from Tier 1 and Tier 2 advertising on InfoBarrel was allegedly $10.97, down from the previous month. There are still definite problems with the income reporting on the site and the owners still don’t care about it. How much longer the site will keep going with the almost total lack of interest from those running it is a good question. Moving all my articles from the site, given that I have well over a thousand, is not something I’m looking forward to doing.

Amazon

Amazon US income was $27.65 with 29 shipped items, down from February and lower than March 2016. After months of improving income, with each month beating the same time in the previous year, it is now struggling a bit again. All of the income came from the electronics site. Amazon UK earnings were £3.79 from 2 items dispatched, down a bit from March, with all of the income coming from the electronics site.

eBooks

I published the five role playing game supplements mentioned earlier on RPGNow in April. This included two Pathfinder supplements, one of which was an April Fool’s Day pay what you want offering and my first supplement for the Hero Kids system. Three of the supplements were of types that I consider to be better quality than average.

There were 232 sales across 59 supplements earning $178.45 after RPGNow’s cut, down quite a bit from March but there was no sale on the site this month.

There were some more Kindle page reads, more than the previous month but nothing spectacular and no sales. I did run another free promotion, but nothing really accomplished from doing this. Kindle earnings were £0.08, hardly anything but still higher than in many months.

Niche Sites

As well as the six articles mentioned earlier I published 18 posts on the electronics site. As it commonly does, it accounted for the majority of the AdSense income and all of the Amazon income.

I finally made a bit of progress with the overhaul of the clothing site, moving three articles into the new structure, having found a 301 redirection plug-in that did want I wanted, but the redesign is not going as fast as it should be nor am I publishing new content at anything close to a decent rate – or at all most months. No new content was published.

As well as the fifteen articles mentioned earlier I also published 45 smaller posts on the science fiction site, again the latter being former Bubblews posts that have been slightly tweaked. The amount of content on the site, especially with quite a few new, longer, articles being published, is increasing fairly well.

As well as the article mentioned earlier, I published six posts and six pages on the RPG site. There may, or may not, have been a sale from the site, as there were some affiliate earnings of $0.05 for a newly released supplement but the tracking codes didn’t match up with any places the affiliate link was posted; however, they do get overwritten. If there was a sale I made both the money from the sale and the affiliate revenue.

Once again, nothing new to report on the writing site. The time I would probably have spent on it I have been spending on the clothing site instead.

myLot

I published 35 posts on myLot and earned $1, down quite a bit from March. As I mentioned last month, I’ve been spending my time elsewhere rather than on myLot recently.

bitLanders

I published 16 microblogs on bitLanders, with nothing longer published this month.

General

I published the 26 articles mentioned earlier on the general site, which included quite a few articles I would formerly have published on InfoBarrel. The amount of content on the site is increasing fairly quickly (in fact it’s probably increasing faster than InfoBarrel from all the writers at the moment). As well as a tiny amount of AdSense income, it earned 3 cents from InfoLinks, the highest amount since I started using the network again.

I also purchased a new theme for the site; I have been waiting to see if it was discounted for some time.

Plans for May

I completed backing up the articles on InfoBarrel that I bought from Vic Dillinger so now I need to move on to those from Dreamaker.

I plan to continue the rebuild of the clothing site in May as well as install the new theme on the general site. The theme will undoubtedly require some tweaking, which may take it into next month.

I am starting to struggle a bit for role playing game supplements that I can complete to keep up with my weekly schedule, at least written ones. I am writing enough, but many are not finished and will not be for some time. I do have quite a bit of graphics-based supplements to release, so I can always fall back on these if needed.

Earnings for March 2017

A dollar sign.This is a summary of the income, both received and accumulated, that was earned during March 2017.

The earnings are divided into two main categories, Accumulated and Received. Accumulated earnings also detail any payments received from that category during the month. Earnings are then further broken down into the areas from which the earnings were made. Earnings for the previous month follow the current month’s revenue in brackets.

For a full breakdown of writing related progress and earnings, see the complete article here.

Most of the work done during the month was related to articles, and any associated affiliate programmes, rather than other sources.

RedGage earnings are, as has been the standard for some time, still missing.

Fizzy is still not earning anything, and whether or not the outstanding earnings will ever be paid is still open to question. GamesChart also looks like it’s gone, which means that what was earned from there is now lost. MindJolt earnings were, a bit oddly, zero.

Amazon US earnings increased this month and were actually higher than March last year, the first month in a while that’s been true.. Amazon UK earnings increased quite a bit from the previous month, but as mentioned before, they tend not to be remotely consistent.

As has been the case for far too many months now, InfoBarrel earnings are still unbelievably poor. It appears that the new layout may have adversely affected earnings, even assuming they are genuine, which is a big assumption. The continued total lack of interest in running the site has meant that it is no longer being written on.

Earnings from the role playing game supplements on RPGNow increased substantially over last month. There was an expected spike cause by the GM’s Day Sale and, even though one supplement was released as pay what you want, the quality was higher.

There were also some more, minor, earnings from Zazzle and Slice the Pie has made its first appearance with a bit of income.
