October 2017 – Extra Income Update

Hello again guys!

As you know I’m now keeping track of the extra income I earn for the few side hustles I have. Let’s get straight to it then!

Let’s see what the incomes were from the 2 major categories:

Cash Back:

  • MBNA Rewards World Elite Mastercard: $68.00
  • $6.03

I’m quite happy with the CC return for this month. Obviously it would be better to just cut back on the spending, but some of it you can’t really avoid!

As for the return, it was the first check I’ve received so far, and definitely not that last. I find myself looking more and more to amazon for household things and progressively more for non-perishable food items as well.

Social Media Income:

  • Youtube (Adsense) Revenue: $167.11
  • Affiliate Links: $0.00
  • Blog (Adwords) Revenue: $0.00

My Youtube revenue has been steady for the last months. Unfortunately, I have been totally swamped by work and other life events recently. I will find the time to make more videos in the upcoming weeks. It is nice to see that the channel grows organically even in the absence of new activity though.

In terms of Affiliate Links, I did accumulate some revenue but none was actually paid out to me. The payment threshold is $100, with this month I’m currently up to $67.92 USD. I expect a new lump sum payment in about 2-3 months.

The Blog did not pay me anything but DID GENERATE revenue! A big $0.72 for the month of September. I had ads disabled for the month of October, so no income generation will come from that. I did however re-activate ads to see what the income generation would be with the slight increase in traffic. Can’t wait to see! (no income, no graph!)

This month, I will use the extra income ($241.14) to pay off some debt. I highly suspect the November and December incomes will go towards Christmas gifts!


Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Really great to see you making at least a little bit of side income ๐Ÿ™‚

    I can’t add side income now, as I first need to improve my main income. Preparing myself for freelancing in March. Already have some interested clients and should be easy to maintain full-time freelance work.

    Hopefully, you can payout your affiliate income before Christmas ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. That is still some great passive income that wasn’t dividend related. I love seeing your youtube channel revenue every month. Kind of makes me want to start one myself but I don’t see it happening any time soon. Good way to diversify and expand your brand though. Nice work.
