    * I’m keeping track of my HART-Empire Earnings for 2007 Online ..

    I posted my 2007 earnings for the period January 1, 2007 to April 30, 2007 last month .. OVER HERE ..and it is my intention to update it every month – and “keep score”. It’s also my hope to show all the “newbies” and even the “not-so-newbies-but-been-around-the-block-too” people .. that it really does take time to get things built up and to a level where you can earn revenues from online activities.

    I have now been officially blogging for MORE than two complete years as my PetLvr site reached it’s 2nd anniversary on May 31, 2007. Personally, I think whoever says that they are making money within their first six months are either “the exception”, lying, or will eventually burn out and never make it long-term. I don’t think I could ever have made money within the first six months .. however, I chose not to invest money or advertise during my time blogging .. and recognize that 2 years before one starts making money might be a little longer than the average person. If I didn’t have my online career and the slowdown every Jan-June from lack of involvement and time reasons .. well, I believe I would be way ahead than where I am today.

    I’ve learned to be patient with the earnings part (and hopefully not annoying of my readers) but anything goes with the monetization aspect .. in the hopes not to be reliant on one sole source of revenue. Definitely, Text Link sponsorship has helped me get a boost in my earnings and as for Google Adsense .. it’s hard not to take advantage somehow and use them on the sites.

    Here is what my earnings looked like since DAY ONE for both adsense and text link sponsorship .. so .. be patient! As you can see, I’ve only been using TLA for 1-year and I’ve earned more than double what adsense was for 2-years. I see real estate space for future TLA earnings, but limited to my sites and their potential. For adsense, there are other variables that I keep in mind (mostly traffic) but I think might have the greater exponential growth possibility. I could be wrong though! 😀

    I might add, that in case you were interested in sponsoring a text link on any of my blogs .. please check out: HART-Network.com/advertise/

    It’s Also A Good Idea To Start Keeping Track

    I’m using the Google Spreadsheet Document and constantly update it as I go along, and free to look at my figures, or even my formulas or the way I set this up .. for your own use!

    * Here is the link: HART-Empire Network Earnings Spreadsheet Document (I hope you can’t change anything and it really is in VIEW mode – it’s hard to tell because I’m always signed in with my Google Talk! If not, please do not save any changes :D)

    Obviously, the earnings are on an “Accrual” basis, where I’m documenting what I’ve earned, but monies will usually come in the following month, or (if ever) when I reach the minimum threshold for release of my earnings for payment. The expenditures are on a “Cash” basis, as I pay something related to my online earnings, I just load up the spreadsheet and modify it.

    Reflection

    I’ve added more information related to my costs and net earnings. In May, I received a cheque from Hear and Play Music for $15 and somehow, my account at AuctionAds earned $0.77 and I’ve adjusted April figures.

    The big news is that I am moving servers this month to my new ISP#3 .. MIDPHASE, and have already begun the process with my backups and well, payments. I’m expecting a surcharge for the additional Bandwidth that I used up in May at my ISP#1 .. and an extra sub-contract support to help me segregate MySQL database at ISP#1 but, so far – Year To Date (Jan-May/2007) my cumulative net earnings were $1,046.67. And, when you subtract my June payments already made .. $346.76 .. I don’t know where the difference went to – because, I’ve only got less than $10 in my Paypal account at this moment.

    *some day* Hopefully some of my paypal earnings can get transfered back to my credit card, or my savings!

    I can only hope it’s before Xmas 2007 – when I wish I have saved enough for a mini-vacation getaway with my wife.
