My First Quarter Online Income Updates for 2019

My online income for the first quarter was not quite impressive. But it is still a good start of the year for me. We all know that the busier we are, the faster the time flies. It seems like it was just a day ago when we were talking about the new year.  Hey! Before we know it, 3 months have already passed.

For someone like me who has a full-time job and at the same time, trying to make the most of my spare time in order to get a little amount from different online activities, time is a precious thing. It is the reason why I always see to it to apply this 9 Time Management Tips.

What Happened to the First Quarter?

This March 2019 symbolizes two great things for me. First, it marks the end of the first quarter of the year and second, it officially closes one of my major obligations being a parent to my youngest child. That is the obligation to provide her with a proper education. It’s one of my major accomplishments in life.

For this blog, I want to present some accomplishments during the first 3 months of the year which would be helpful in the planning for the succeeding months.

My Goal for 2019

My main goal this year was to increase my online income because I am planning to go back to school. I am aware that we need to continuously increase our knowledge. The best way to do it is to go back to school and enroll in another course. Getting a higher degree would help especially if we are aspiring to be promoted.

However, I also wanted to explore other areas of online earning. This will help me learn new things without going to school. At the same time, it can help me establish my own name and probably increase my income. So I started a new blog during the last quarter of the prior year. Because most of my free time was devoted to my new blog, I was not able to regularly submit blog posts to Bitlanders.

A Decrease in the Earnings

I associated the result of my first quarter income to my limited time and lack of knowledge. When I checked my first-quarter earnings, I saw that it was much lower than my previous year’s earnings. Comparing my current online earnings for the first quarter and to that of the previous year, it shows that what I earned for the first quarter this year is only equivalent to my one-month earnings last year.  This thing made me sad but need to accept the fact that I could not do all things at once.

I know that I have very limited time.  But I need to make the most of it in order to earn extra income. This would be a great help me with my daily expenses. Nonetheless, it is still a great thing that my online activities can help me somehow. It may be a small amount. But it is still an additional income. We could not just get it by just waiting or spending it on unnecessary activities. 

A Breakdown of My First Quarter Online Income

My blog was finally up. I spent most of my time during the last three months of 2018 for this project. I need to set aside some of the activities I used to do in order to focus on my blog. 

At the beginning of the year, I decided to return to my regular schedule. Admittedly, the inclusion of the activities for my new blog into my regular schedule is quite arduous. Slowly, everything started to get back into normal. I can submit blog posts to Bitlanders, which is apparently my main source of online income. 

Here is what comprises my first quarter online income:

$18.52 – I earned this amount from Forum Coin, a site, as the name suggests pays its members to engage in a quality discussion. The site also accepts articles from qualified members. 

I use the site primarily for interaction especially when I encounter issues with my own site. We can get ideas and suggestions from fellow members who are mostly web developers and writers. I enjoy the site as it is not very strict on the rules. I don’t spend too much time with the site but if you are really active, you can earn $20 to $30 per month.

$239.50 – Bitlanders is a blogging site and I earn most from this site than any other online sites. Though I slow down in submitting blog posts, I am happy to announce that this is still my highest earning site. 

The site is a bit strict in their review before a blog post would be published, but once you get the process, it would be much easier. Refer to this post to learn more about Bitlanders. Let me know if you need assistance in learning how to earn from the site. 

$4.47 – I sold an ebook. This ebook is about Bitlanders. I wasn’t able to give more time for promotion so I am not expecting to sell more. But if you are interested in learning more about Bitlanders, you can purchase the ebook HERE.

$8.00 – I earned this amount from a simple task requested by an online friend. 

Other Achievements

New referrals – I got new referrals for my sites.

I learned how to create an ebook. 

Learned how to use Pinterest effectively and helped increased my traffic. 

On the Final Thought

On the overall, my first quarter is a great success. I am hopeful that my blog will continue to improve in terms of SEO. I am planning to add more services and products in the coming months.
