November Side Hustle

Online Side Hustle Income for November 2017

We’re now getting into the month of December. While the end of November was unseasonably warm in my part of the country, I’m sure the snow will be flying shortly. With the end of another month, it’s time to add up my online side hustle income for November.November Online Side Hustle Income

As I’ve noted before, I started looking into ways to earn money online around the time that I started grad school. With a wife an kids to support and a tiny grad stipend, I needed to find a way to make more money. I started investigating a few options. One success would lead to another. Before long, I’d found several options for earning money online.

I have a real job now with real income, but the online side hustle income that I bring in each and every month helps me toward my ultimate goals of being free from debt and achieving some level of semi financial independence. I’m quite a ways away from both at the moment, but I’m inching toward my goals slowly, but surely.

November was not as strong a month for online earnings as a few other months this year have been. Some of the freelance income that I’ve had every other month of the year is going to come in December, rather than November. This leads to the lower payout that you’ll see here.

Online Side Hustle Income for November

Here are the ways that I earned money from my online side hustles in November 2017 (Please note that there are affiliate links. I may be compensated if you sign up for these sites with my links):

Swagbucks: $100
Freelance Writing: $44.06
Earnably: $6.00
EarnHoney: $5.00
Amazon.com: $0.12 (page views from my e-Book)

Total online side hustle income for November: $155.06 

This is the lowest that I’ve made all year, but I had nearly $100 accrued that will get paid out in December. This month is looking like it will be a great return for my efforts. The cool part about some of this income is the fact that it came my way pretty passively. Both EarnHoney and Earnably allow me to let videos play. I’m liking Earnably more in recent months because it has a really low payout level of just $1. It’s not much, but it adds up over time.

Can You Make Money Online?

Absolutely. Your ability to earn money online is limited by the time that you have available each week and the imagination that you might have to market some opportunities to others. Setting up your own blog can be a great way to share these opportunities that can help people out. You can also start to earn affiliate income of your own.

WordPress recommends BlueHost, which is one of the top options for self-hosted bloggers. You can sign up for BlueHost by clicking the banner below if you’re interested in getting a self-hosted blog. I just started another website, and the process of getting it set up requires just a few clicks and some typing after you’ve chosen a name for your site:

Remember, I started out making absolutely nothing online. I’ve now built up to where I’m making nearly $5,000 a year in my spare time. This can definitely grow over time.

Paying Off Debt With Online Earnings–Part 3

 

Over the past month or so, I’ve been tracking my attempts at paying off debt with online earnings. This is probably going to be a long, drawn out process.

I graduated from grad school with more than $36,000 in debt. Well, it was probably just above $20,000 when I graduated. Then I ran into a four-month gap between the end of my grad assistantship and my first paycheck at my new job. I also had to move to take the job.

Erasing Debt with Online Earnings
Erasing Debt with Online Earnings

Needless to say, the debt grew quite a bit within just a few months. I was not happy. That was a little more than four years ago. My goal is now to pay off this debt in short order. I’d like to have it paid off within the next couple of years.

Even with what I considered a big amount of debt, it’s not nearly as big as what some people have. Student loan debt is around $37,000 for the average graduate. I had some friends who owed more than six figures. This can definitely hamper one’s lifestyle for years to come. That’s why I’m working at paying off debt with online earnings.

I’ve attempted to make money online for the past several years in an attempt to at first supplement my then-meager income as a grad student and then to pay off debt and build my investments so that I can build up passive income.

Paying Off Debt With Online Earnings–Part 3

My credit card statement is about to roll over to a new month. I have all of my debt from my days as a grad student on a 0-percent balance transfer. Before I decided to split my efforts between paying off debt with my online earnings and investing, I was basically paying off the minimum each month. With a debt that was then a little north of $8,000, I figured that I could theoretically take between 8 and 10 years to pay off the debt.

I was investing most of my online earnings, but the debt went down very, very slowly. I want rid of it more quickly. I figured out that paying off $200 a month could make the debt go bye-bye in a little more than three years. In my estimation, three years is much better than eight.

In the last month, I came pretty close to paying off $200. I paid $185 on the last statement. The minimum was $81. My debt is now below $8,000. I could have paid another $45, but I scheduled it to go on the next statement for cash flow purposes. I hope that I can get into the $7,700 range by the time the next statement closing date rolls around.

Keep Up With My Progress

If you’d like to help me achieve my goal of paying off debt with no expense to yourself, you can make your purchases from Amazon through the link below. You’ll pay the same as you normally would, and I’ll get a small commission. Just click the image below:

You can also sign up for the following sites and start to earn points that can lead to PayPal cash, Amazon cards, or even Bitcoin.

GiftHulk (I’ll earn $0.10 if you sign up)
Earnably (I’ll earn either $0.02 or $0.10 if you sign up, depending upon where you live)
Swagbucks (I’ve earned more than $2,000 from this site, and it’s my favorite. I don’t earn a bonus if you sign up, only if you actually earn.)

Don’t feel obligated to sign up for anything you see on the site. I appreciate people who just stop by to read and/or comment.

How I Made Money Online In October 2017

Making money online has probably never been easier. There are many ways that I’ve made money online

How I Made Money Online In October 2017
How I Made Money Online In October 2017

over the past several years.

I started out making nothing online. I thought it was a gimmick of sorts. Then I started reading about people making hundreds, if not thousands, each and every month. I also knew that I was about to start grad school. With a wife and kids to support, I needed to supplement my meager income, so I started reading up on some of the major ways that I could make some money online.

I started a blog after reading an article on Problogger where Darren Rowse disclosed his status as a six-figure blogger.  I dutifully started my own blog, hoping to hit the big time quickly. Within a week, I’d earned $0.59 from AdSense. I was on my way, or so I thought.

This was more than seven years ago, and I’ve cashed out via AdSense once in that time. Needless to say, I’ve not hit the big time in a Problogger sort of way, but I have seen my income grow over time as I looked into other options and made money online with them.

I quickly found out that I needed other options, and I started looking into other avenues to make money from home. I found a few, and I’ve found even more over time. These methods of making money online do not require me to leave the house. I started sharing some of them on this site so that I can help others learn how to earn money in pajamas.

How I Made Money Online In October 2017

These posts that I started at the beginning of the year list some of the major ways that I’ve earned money online in 2017. I enjoy looking back at the end of each month to see how I’ve supplemented my income from working at my Jay Oh Bee (that’s my job).

I also like to share the ways that I make money online so that others can learn that they too can supplement their incomes. It does not really take a degree in rocket science. All it takes is some free time and some perseverance. I have several different streams of income each month. The more, the better. That way, if one option goes away, I still have others that will bring me some income.

I’m using my online earnings to build up passive income from dividends and to pay off debt. This is a long-term process that I anticipate will pay off over a period of years.

So, without keeping you in suspense any longer, here are the ways I made money online in October (please note that the links are affiliate links. I may be compensated if you sign up with them):

Freelance Writing: $209.83
Swagbucks: $50.00
GiftHulk: $5.00
Earnably: $1.00

Total Online Earnings for October 2017: $265.83

This was down a little bit over the previous few months. However, it’s important to remember that even this small amount would add up to more than $3,000 over the course of a year if I kept it up for 12 months. How much would $3,000 help people who are only able to pay off their bills and save nothing each month?

I would think it would help quite a bit. You can sign up for the programs listed above and get started with your own online earnings.

Can You Make Money Online?

Absolutely. Your ability to earn money online is limited by the time that you have available each week and the imagination that you might have to market some opportunities to others.

How I Made Money Online In September 2017


Some (but not even the majority at this point) of my income is affiliate income that I earn when people sign up for programs that I promote on this site. I appreciate any help that my readers choose to give me. We’re now well into October. The leaves are starting to fall from the trees in my part of the country. This is pretty depressing, but Christmas is coming pretty quickly. One of the greatest gifts I could give myself for Christmas is less debt.

I’ve been working online to earn more money. This money that I’m earning has a goal. I’m attempting to accelerate debt payments while also investing a few bucks toward passive income that can grow over time.

I put in some effort during September toward these goals, much as I have in just about every month since I started learning about earning money online back in 2010. I again worked on some GPT websites while also doing some freelance writing.

How I Made Money Online In September 2017

Here are some of the ways that I earned money in September:

Freelance Writing: $236.69
Swagbucks: $100.00
GiftHulk: $5.00
Earnably: $2.00
Ibotta: $20.00

Total Online Earnings for September 2017: $363.69

This was a bit less than the $401.66 that I earned online in August, but it is still a nice chunk of change. You could start earning more money as well. I made money online by taking some of the time that I’d otherwise have been wasting while watching TV.

I keep up with my online earnings for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, it allows me to maintain a nice level of motivation. If I see that I’ve made money online, it encourages me to make more money online.

I’m trying to build up to where I have a suitcase of money each month–preferably in hundreds.

 

The second reason that I’m sharing some of the ways that I’ve earned money online is to encourage others to start taking more control of their finances by picking up some low-hanging fruit that can allow them the earn some money while watching TV (or even sleeping in the case of Earnably).  The way I learned how to make money online was from reading blogs such as this one.
