This has been an interesting month.
Thanksgiving was fantastic. My family is well…my family. But the food was great. That’s what I really care about.
I do have some bad news. As far as editing, I did not come in first place this month.
I did come in second. And there is still a bonus for that position, so it’s all good.
Coming in first last month and second this month tells me I’m one of the best editors on the staff. This makes me happy. It also tells me people are gunning for me and I can’t slack. They want my bonus and I can’t blame them.
I’ll be damned if I’m going to make it easy.
Also, I bought a new computer. I’ve been using the same Lenovo laptop since 2010. Now that I’m freelancing full time, the 15-inch screen isn’t cutting it. So on Cyber Monday, I picked up two 23″ monitors and a desktop for a total of $550.
This wasn’t my only big expense. I took my car in for an oil change. Turns out I needed 3 new tires and a power steering belt on the ole girl. 260k miles and still kickin’. I’ll take the occasional expense to avoid a car payment.
I’m working on a new side-hustle opportunity. It requires a lot of patience and an upfront cash investment of about 2k, but it is the perfect side-gig to complement my freelancing career. If it works out, could be a game-changer.
I’ll keep you guys updated on how that’s going.
Thanks to a friendly neighborhood blogger, wfh office is still alive.
I’ve started using my employer to help with some content and links. You can now find affiliate links to the site on wfh office. I’m still looking for some folks to do some writing for me as well.
I’ve made a few tweaks to the sight, mostly to highlight links a different color. If you have any suggestions, hmu via my contact box or through twitter.
Passive income for November 2017
Cash Back Credit Card – Currently using the Discover It card. I highly recommend this card. Contact me privately for a referral link. Got my usually $20ish bucks in cash back from this source.
Patreon – A wonderful human being is throwing me $5 a month to blog. Up to $13 in total! I love all of you.
Acorns – Up about $8 here. Check out my Acorns review and if you wanna give it a try, I have a referral link. Just pm me privately or hmu on da Twitter.
Ads – I no longer place ads in the post. There is one in the sidebar and one at the end of the post. Surprisingly, this channel brought in almost $3 in passive income for the month. I’ll take it!
Work bonus. Yay!
Total not including bonus – Almost $50. I’ll take it!
As you guys have noticed, my passive income streams are not growing rapidly. I’m pretty sure they aren’t supposed to. These kinds of things take a while before the snowball starts to accumulate and take off. I’m ok with that.
Traffic for WAPH is down again this month. The lowest it has been since May. I reckon I’ll have to be ok with that, too. I’ve got some spicy posts coming down the pipe that should be pretty entertaining. Well…I’m having fun writing them. Heh.
Thanks for reading, guys. And I’ll catch you next week.
