Quite a steady month although there is a decline in Google AdSense earnings as I was trying a few different placements (to make it less intrusive for you though at the expense of less money for me, which is cool). There was quite a big jump in Amazon Affiliates as you can see, which is great, and I can’t wait to see how much I can rack up in December (as people crazily search for review gadgets to be gifted for the holiday season :))
I still can’t break through into affiliate marketing as most big bloggers get the money from. I guess it’s hard when I don’t use much paid/affiliate services to offer/pitch. And I don’t want to promote affiliate products/services by pretending or lying about the results – it’s just not my method.
To those who are subscribing to my newsletter, do you mind to receive partial feeds like last week’s? Or do you prefer to have a full newsletter with all the post contents? Check here if you don’t know what I mean: Partial vs Full.
