I’m not happy with the amount of time I spent blogging in 2008 with ratio to how much blogging paid me. Like any frugal person, I am now weighing what I will make in 2009 and using that to determine how many hours I will work and how much money I must make. First, my last 6 month’s earnings:
FEB 09 106.84
JAN 09 251.82
DEC 08 118.51
NOV 08 165.00
OCT 08 90.00
SEP 08 391.63
AVG per MO $187.30
Projected Hours I will work per month: (12/week or 48/month)
Approximate hourly pay for blogging: $3.90/hour
Wage desired: $10/hour minimum
Monthly income at 12/hours a week needed to meet this wage: $480
So, let’s clarify this: I currently make an average of $3.90/hour working 12 hours a week.
I want to make at least $10/hour working the same hours so my monthly income must rise an average of: $323 a month.
-That is probably not going to happen right away-
So, for now I am setting an income goal of $50 more than my average. In other words, in March 2009, I have the goal of making $237.30. How will I do this?
*Each day I blog, I will check all sources for income potential.
*I will also more aggresively advertise my blog mentoring services for which I charge $20/hour.
Any suggestions on how I might make my Net goals for March 09? Leave a comment.
