Back in Bangkok now and have just done the maths for my December web income and as I mentioned earlier this has been my best month by some distance!
Not only did I break through the GBP 500 barrier but I also crept over the GBP 1000 barrier! So December was twice as good as any previous month!
Well it all sounds like good news but Google decided to drop one of my key sites out of it’s search engine results on the 26th December causing a dramatic drop in visitors and income!
You never know whats going to happen in this business and this highlights the fact that you should always diversify your income streams.
If the site that was dropped by Google had been my only one then I would be in trouble. Luckily I decided a while ago to create more sites to help soften any blows.
I spent around GBP 600 in the month of December which again is a little bit higher than I hoped (as Nov) but it leaves me with a monthly profit of GBP 400.
This means that since I left the UK I have now earnt GBP 110 more than I have spent which is great news at this stage.
I am still not doing as much work as I had planned though. I firmly believe if you take this business as seriously as a regular job (e.g. working 7 hours a day, 5 days a week) you could make much more than you could doing many types of other day job.
If you ever look at webmasterworld.com you will hear stories of people doing this seriously and getting the great rewards. Maybe one day I will join them!
