Thanks and welcome to the monthly progress and income report for my niche website business! Every month I like to share with you how things are going with website developments, challenges I’ve ran into, and cool new tricks I’ve discovered. It’s all part of being an online entrepreneur and seeing if we can create something from nothing into a constant sustainable business. Right off the bat I’ll apologize and confess that I have not spent as much time working on my niche sites as I probably should be. That’s all because I’ve been pre-occupied with the finalization of my first eBook. I’m very proud to report that I’m rounding third base on the whole eBook project. The front cover is finished. My editor and I have finalized the … [Read more...] about Niche Website Income Report 28 – $975 for March 2015
It’s time to let the cat out of the bag! For a while now I’ve been hinting that my next big extra income project will be to officially release an eBook. This is something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time. Quite frankly I’m way overdue and should have tried it a long time ago. As a matter of fact making money writing eBooks was on the table as one of my next projects as far back as this post in 2013. Better late than never though, right? If you remember, I actually did experiment with writing a whole eBook back over the summer. But I got cold feet about taking the next steps and investing the time it takes to edit it, find a cover, etc. And so I ended up releasing it as just one really large epic post on one of my niche … [Read more...] about 14 Reasons Why Writing an eBook Will Be My Next Make-Money Project

Hello and welcome to our first official Niche Website Update and Income Report for 2015! Since 2013 I’ve been trying to take my hobby of blogging and really turn it into something of a long-term, stable. My ultimate goal is for the niche sites I create to generate several streams of positive passive income that will continue to roll in no matter whether I’m working, sleeping, or whatever I’m up to. I consider all the extra income I make to be a huge blessing because its money that I made outside my job and beyond the budget we’ve set for our family. Plus – it’s a lot of fun to see how far I can take this entrepreneurial effort and see where it goes. Unfortunately January started off with some pretty big delays due to my BIG … [Read more...] about Niche Website Income Report 026 – $1,155 for January 2015
Anyone who is anyone when it comes to blogging knows that one of the best ways to grow your business is to offer to write guest posts for other sites. While guest posting doesn’t directly make you any money (at least not if you’re one of those shady sponsored post authors I ignore in my inbox), it can give you and the brand you’re trying to develop plenty of qualitative value. And, as you might guess, that qualitative value can lead to things like more traffic or better search ranks results that will eventually yield you more income (more on that below). If you really think about it guest posting is a win-win for both parties. The host blog gets free, awesome content that will stay on their site forever. Not only does that save … [Read more...] about 12 Things I Learned From Writing Over 30 Guest Posts Last Year
Welcome to another edition of the My Money Design monthly niche website update. For the last 2 years now I’ve been working very hard to develop a collection of sites that will serve as a stream of sustainable income. I’m doing so by treating this blogging effort like a business rather than a hobby; meaning every month I come up with goals and new strategies to try that I anticipate will make next month better than the last. I feel so fortunate to have discovered the concept of passive income and invested energy into it. All the money I’m making is money that I make OUTSIDE my job. That’s income that I control, not my employer. 2014 capped off as the biggest year for me yet! Together we made more money on the side than I ever … [Read more...] about Niche Website Update 25 – $1,577 in Income – Thank You Amazon!
Welcome to yet another edition of my monthly niche website portfolio update. Building and profiting from websites has become a very intricate part of how I’m slowly building my fortune and saving for financial freedom. The great thing about it is that it is in no way tied to my day-job or paycheck in any way. I’m simply going above and beyond to create an income stream that will help support my goals regardless of my job. November is over and winter has been very much upon us here in the mid-west. These are the kinds of cold months where I really look forward to staying indoors (where it’s warm) with a cup of hot coffee and typing out brand-new content for hours on end. There were a few surprises this past month but all in all … [Read more...] about Niche Website Update 24 – $1,524 of Income – Amazon Site Progress and Next Steps
