Metallman's Reverie: Blog Income August 2011

Hey there.  August is in the the books and it's time to report on how well on (or off) pace we are in reaching my $1700 goal for the year. Let's take a look at the numbers:

SocialSpark - $62.85
SponsoredTweets - $26.65
PayPerPost - $43.00
Dad Central - $250.00
Blogsvertise - $40.00
MyLikes - $2.11
Total for August- $424.61
YTD Total - $1896.52 (GOAL EXCEEDED!!! New Goal - $2500)

I have exceeded my goal of $1700 for the year!!!!  YES!  How awesome is that?!?!?!  I'm a pretty happy camper right now!  At this pace, it looks like I could actually hit the $2500 mark!  So let's shoot for the stars and make that the goal for the end of the year!  So let's take a look at how we got there.

SocialSpark provided a good flow of opportunities last month and that trend is continuing.  I expect another $60+ month from SocialSpark next month and I'm glad that those opportunities are finally presenting themselves.  For a second there, it seemed like the opportunities dried up and one would pop up every now and then but IZEA has never let me down and has come up big once again.

SponsoredTweets is another IZEA company that has done well for me since I have upgraded to Pro Status.  It's only $2 a month and it will allow you to cash out at $25 as opposed to the $50 cash out for standard members.  I have had a nice flow of tweets that have come in and that also seems to be the case for this month so I'm hoping that I can count on another cash out this month.

PayPerPost rarely provides opportunities so I was surprised when I received a few well paying opportunities within a few weeks.  I cashed out early, since I felt that it would take forever to meet the $50 minimum cashout and I don't see another cash out anytime in the near future.

Dad Central (Mom Central) has once again exceeded my expectations and have provided a healthy boost to Metallman's Reverie's income.  Though they do not provide PayPal payments, they do provide prepaid Amex cards and gift cards from many retail stores.  I have been fortunate to be a part of many of their great campaigns and I hope that I continue to be fortunate to continue receiving those opportunities.  They are very close to taking over as the #1 money maker for me.  Thanks, you guys!

Blogsvertise income has become less and less each month.  I continue to decline tasks due to the content (not really fitting in with my blog).  Nevertheless, it still provides me with that opportunity or so to write about some great content and still add to my income totals.  I'm not sure how much longer I'll be an active participant here, but maybe their integration of Twitter and Facebook will pump some life into it and more attractive opportunities.

MyLikes has slowly died on my radar.  Every now and I then I'll send out a Twitter message for it but find that a lot of campaigns run of funds rather quickly and it's possible to receive clicks and no payment.  It's not as reliable as it used to be and strongly prefer SponsoredTweets for monetizing my Twitter account.  Not so sure how much longer I'll stick around MyLikes but I hope that they'll turn it around soon since they do offer a vast array of topics to tweet.

So there you have it.  The best month ever for my site and because of it, I can continue to keep on writing and I can continue to giveaway monthly prizes.  If the pace keeps up, I might start offering 2 game prizes a month as opposed to 1!  Thank you all for reading and stopping by to check out my humble site.  I greatly appreciate it!  Even a nobody like me can make some serious cash online.  Check out my links above and tell em that Metallman sent ya!  Later!!!

  2. is this earning only from this blog ??? how many page views did u earned $424.61 ???

  3. Hey there Mniki,

    I only have one blog and my earnings here includes my Twitter feed. Other than that, that's it. I don't have multiple blogs. As for pageviews, I know for sure that I exceed 10,000 a month but I don't really keep tabs on that so I'll keep a close eye on that this month and maybe disclose that info in my next earnings report. Thanks for the comment.
