Happy New Year! 2011 has come to a close and 2012 has started. I have updated all of my making money earnings and made a total of $585.48 this year by writing online. I made $554.32 from writing articles and $31.16 from affiliate sales. A more detailed break-down of my earnings per program is below.
My goal for 2012 is by the end of the year to be making $500 per month. A huge goal! I hope to become more diligent about promoting all of my articles and creating backlinks for them. I also plan to write, write, write. I hope to have at least 100 articles/pages for each site that I write for by the end of the year and will greatly increase the number of articles I write for Infobarrel. (I haven't written for Infobarrel in almost 2 months!) This year I received my first tier 1 lens for Squidoo: Daily Deal Sites Like Groupon. I plan to promote this lens so that it remains tier 1 all year and create at least 1 new lens that becomes tier 1. (Ideally, I would like to end 2012 with 5 tier 1 lenses). I also plan to create more pages at Wizzley, where although I have 2 very simple pages, I am pulling in strong Adsense earnings per page.
