October Earnings Report

This month has been quite busy for me, so I’m a bit late on posting the online earnings report. I did not do as well in October as most other months this year, but I’ve been much more busy with my real job. As a grad student with my work completed, I had much more time (and much less income) for much of the past year. Coming into this month, I had $3,921.26 in online earnings for the year. That was just over $1,000 under my earning goal for the year. Here are my online earnings for October:

Freelance Writing: $85.92

Bubblews: $25.03 (Some people are making hundreds on this site per month, but they are much more active than I am.)

Swagbucks: $10.00

MTurk: $7.70

This made my total earnings for October $128.65 and brings my total for the year to $4,049.91. I have now crossed the $4,000 barrier. I will probably be a bit short of my goal, but this money will be nothing to sneeze at as I attempt to pay down debt from school. My earnings for November already promise to be around the same level. Good luck as you attempt to earn money in active and passive ways online.

September Earnings Report

My earning money in pajamas in September were down a bit over what they had been in August and the rest of the summer months. I’ve started a new full-time job, so some of the time that I spent on blogging and writing during the summer has not been as frequent during the fall thus far. This does not mean that I have done nothing, just that I’ve not done as much in terms of trying to make money online.

I still have my goal of earning $5,000 online using a variety of online earning methods. I began the month of September with a total of $3,754.48, which left me just over $1,245 short of my ultimate goal. That adds up to just under $300 of online earnings per month. Considering that I’ve earned over $450 per month to this point, it is definitely within the realm of possibility. So, without further ado, here is the money I earned in pajamas over the month of September:

Freelance writing: $49.32

CashCrate: $24.18

HubPages: $68.11

Bubblews: $25.17

These numbers bring my total earnings for September to $166.78.

When added to my earnings through August, I now have earned $3,921.26, just over $1,078 short of my goal of earning $5,000 for the year. I’ve already been able to exceed my earnings from freelance writing during October, so it is possible that my earnings will be similar. I’m hoping to get to the $5,000 by the end of the year. I will be sure to keep up with these reports of how much money I’m earning in pajamas.

July Earnings Report

I’ve been working online for the past few months working toward a goal of $5,000 for the year. Much like June, July was a pretty good month when it came to my online earnings. Most was active income, but some of my income was actually extremely passive (i.e., I did no additional work to earn it). That’s the best form of income, in my opinion. Coming into the month, I was up to $2,373.93 for the first six months of the year. I earned some additional funds in July that will bring that total up. Here were my earning streams for July:

Bubblews: $25.16

HubPages: $52.34

CashCrate: $202.57

Freelance Writing: $642.79

This brings my online earnings for July 2013 to a whopping $922.86. If I were to earn this every month, that would be around $11,000 for the year, and when added to my regular job, that would be a great supplement to my income. Of course, as someone in education, the summer is the period that I can actually spend more time working online, so earnings might drop. I can hope that passive income starts to snowball and add up over time.

When added to my previous earnings this year, my July’s earnings bring my annual total up to $3,296.79, just a bit over $1,700 from meeting my goal of $5,000 in my spare time for 2013. This is definitely within reach based upon what I’ve been able to earn throughout the year to this point. Do any of you have a similar goal? How is it coming? Making money online is not easy, but it can be done, and it can bring in a decent amount of income for those who work at it.

Making Money from Home–June Earnings Report

As a teacher, my regular workload can slow down quite a bit over the summer, so I have more of an opportunity to make money online. I ended May with $1,464.46 in online earnings for the year. This was just under $300 per month. My goal for the year is to earn $5,000. June was a busy month for me, and I was able to pick up the online earnings. Here are my various methods of making money online for June 2013:

Freelance Writing: $512.83

HubPages: $54.45

Bubblews: $25.60

CashCrate: $309.06

MTurk: $7.53

My total of all online earnings for June was $909.47. When added to my previous total of $1,464.46, I have now made $2,373.93 through various online venues this year. I am nearly half-way to my goal, and I am just one-half into the year. Much of this work was active income, but some of it was actually a result of passive income. My goal is to get several hundred per month in passive income built up over time. Earning money online can take time, but it can be done. Those who are out of work can find ways to make a few bucks. Teenagers with time on their hands can make money online as well.

Earning Money Online–May Earnings

The first post of the month, as always deals with my monthly earnings. I’ve set a goal of earning $5,000 online via various methods this year. I think the goal is achievable with a little hard work. Through April, I had earned a total of $913.13, which was an average of over $200 per month. May was a better month in terms of online earnings.

In May, I had the following earnings via online methods:

Freelance Writing: $387.19

Hubpages: $77.41

CashCrate: $81.93

MTurk: $4.80

Total online earnings for May 2013: $551.33

After adding the $913.13 that I’ve earned prior to this month, my total earnings for the year are up to $1,464.46, just over $3,500 short of the ultimate goal.

This was a record for online earnings for a month. I am hoping to eclipse it over the next few months. The goal is to start out with small numbers and then have them snowball over time into some really serious money. The best way to make real money is through passive income. These sources would be sources that continue to pay out over time with minimal work. Of course, there is some hard work necessary in the initial days and months of earning money online.

The next monthly earning results will be posted in the first half of next month. Hopefully, these earnings can inspire others to earn some extra money on the web.

Earning Money from Home–April Earnings Report

Back in January, as noted on this site, I set a goal to earn $5,000 via various online means without leaving home during 2013. We are now done with four months of the year. As of the end of March, I reported a total of $638 and some change for the first three months of the year. I actually understated this amount, because I forgot to include the money that I earned from HubPages during the month. These earnings will be included below.

I did pretty well on some accounts during the month of April, considering that I was finishing up a major project for grad school. My goal is to get passive income that starts to snowball over time. I seem to be making close a buck a day from work I’ve already done. The goal is to turn that into $2, then into $5, then into…you get the idea. Passive income is the best kind of income. But, I digress. Without further ado, this is what I was able to make over the course of April (please note that these earnings do not include accrued earnings that will be paid out later):

HubPages: $70.77

Squidoo: $1.43

Freelance Writing: $127.91

Swagbucks: $50

Treasure Trooper: $20.71

MTurk: $4.03

My total earnings for the month totaled $274.85. This brings my total earnings for the year up to $913.13. With what I have already earned this month, I’m already over $1,000. What kind of earnings goals have you set this year?

Earning Money in Pajamas–February Earnings

I continued in my goal of earning money in pajamas during the month of February. As I noted previously, it is important to set goals when trying to earn funds online. As noted in the previous article, I’ve set a goal of making $5,000 from my online activities during 2013.

Here is the latest earnings report for the month of February. Please note that I have also have additional money that I earned during the month that should come in at a later date. Again, I earned the most money from freelancing.

My earnings from freelancing came to $184.62 for the month.I also earned a total of $70.77 from HubPages.

The total for the month was $255.39.

When the earnings for January are added to this total, I have earned a total of $442.70. The money is starting to add up, and I’m trying to diversify my earning streams. Hopefully, I’ll be able to reach my overall goals. Do you have an earning goal for this year? How is it going? I’d be interested to know.

Monthly Online Earnings Report–Making Money in Pajamas for January

January was a pretty busy month. I was on the road for the first week of the month, so my online earning capabilities were not as big as they might have otherwise been. Also, I spent quite a bit of time getting my first draft of my dissertation finished, so that took a bit more time. Travel is not in the cards for February, but there will more than likely be some impressive revisions to do on the dissertation. Nevertheless, I was able to make a few bucks on the side during January.

Most of my money actually came from online writing. There are several sites that people can use to make money. Some of them are open to citizens from around the world. Some limit themselves to just American citizens. At times, my earning is limited by the types of jobs that are available. I might look at the board to see what jobs are available and conclude that the instructions are so convoluted that my pay per hour will come out to about $2.50 because of the research and or formatting involved. I tend to look for jobs in areas in which I already have some knowledge so that I can make more money more quickly.

In January, I made $116.79 from a freelance writing site. I also was able to make $70.52 from the online writing site HubPages, which is a Web 2.0 site that allows users to post their own articles and participate in discussions that are in a way like Facebook. HubPages has a large number of users and pays based upon the number of views and click that people get. I was able to earn some more money during January, but I did not make the payout amount necessary to get paid from these sites. I am continually on the lookout for legitimate ways to make money without leaving the house. I will continue to review some of these sites in the future and keep up with my goal of earning $5,000 in 2013 from my internet work. I am at $187.31 so far after one month. My hope is that the money will start to snowball over time.

What are your online earning goals for the year? I’m interested to know.
