Earnings for August 2017

A dollar sign.This is a summary of the income, both received and accumulated, that was earned during August 2017.

The earnings are divided into two main categories, Accumulated and Received. Accumulated earnings also detail any payments received from that category during the month. Earnings are then further broken down into the areas from which the earnings were made. Earnings for the previous month follow the current month’s revenue in brackets.

For a full breakdown of writing related progress and earnings, see the complete article here.

Most of the work done during the month was related to articles, and any associated affiliate programmes, rather than other sources.

RedGage earnings are, as has been the standard for some time, still missing.

Fizzy is still not earning anything, and whether or not the outstanding earnings will ever be paid is still open to question.

Amazon US earnings decreased a lot and Amazon UK earnings were negative due to a return.

InfoBarrel earnings continue to be unbelievably poor and the owners continue to have absolutely no interest in running the site.

MindJolt no longer appears to be earning anything, despite ad impressions.

Some of the links in this section are affiliate links that can earn me a commission, or revenue share, at no extra expense to you.

My Writing Progress Report for August 2017

Notebook and PenIn August I published 24 articles on the general site (18,336 words), 9 articles on the science fiction site (6,458 words), 5 role playing game supplements (28,272 words) and 2 blog posts (1,422 words).

The total number of words written in August was 63,564, down a few thousand from July.

Writing Related Earnings for August

AdSense income was £2.23, down from last month with the majority coming from the electronics site. AdSense income as a whole was slightly up, but this was mostly due to an increase in YouTube income.

A dollar sign.Earnings from Tier 1 and Tier 2 advertising on InfoBarrel were $11.89, down from July. That’s assuming that the report is both accurate and complete – a rather big assumption, especially as the owners waited until almost the last minute before actually bothering to update the income. I feel that it’s only a matter of time before the site goes; something I am definitely not looking forward to given that I have more than 1,200 articles on the site.

Amazon

There was only $6.86 earned from Amazon in August, my poorest month for a long time – over two years in fact. Five items were ordered but only three were shipped and one was returned. The electronics site made more earning than the clothing site, but they only had one sale each. Amazon UK was even worse; the sole item purchased in July was returned in August, resulting in negative earnings of -£3.25. A very bad month all told, as the Amazon UK losses almost completely wiped out the Amazon US income.

eBooks

I published the five supplements mentioned earlier in August. Two of the supplements (11,620 words) were very similar, with only a few words difference between the them. One was a system neutral supplement and the other a version including some Pathfinder stats. The Pathfinder supplement was outsourced, my first published supplement written by someone else, and I made a few tweaks to make the other system neutral.

The total income was $258.83 after RPGNow‘s cut, with 372 sales across 85 supplements. This was down from last month and down quite a bit from August 2016 – still the second highest month to date. Last year, I sold a lot of supplements, and my more expensive supplements at that, during the Cthulhu Mythos Sale. This year I didn’t sell anywhere near as many. This could be because everyone who really wanted a copy had already bought one, but I actually think it was down to RPGNow changing the ranking algorithm to benefit bigger publishers (well, they say more expensive products, but it’s largely the same thing). So, whereas last year my supplements were on the front page and at the top of the hottest list, because they had larger numbers sold, this year they were buried several pages down and not on the hottest list at all. I doubt that it’s a coincidence I didn’t sell anywhere near as many – as in half a dozen or so each rather than 70 or so each. A big difference. October 2016 currently holds the record for income, for similar reasons. I will be watching to see if October this year is affected the same way as August.

Nothing to report for Kindle again.

Niche Sites

Nothing new was published on the electronics site this month although it earned the majority of the AdSense income. With the losses from Amazon UK, it basically didn’t earn any Amazon income either. It has done quite poorly recently.

I made no progress with the clothing site during the month but it did make an Amazon sale – thanks to the loss from Amazon UK, this effectively made the clothing site the biggest Amazon earner for the month.

As well as the 9 articles mentioned earlier, I also published 53 posts on the science fiction site. It made a tiny bit of income – 1 cent – from Infolinks during the month.

I published seven posts and five pages on the RPG site during the month but no income was generated.

Once again, nothing new to report with the writing site.

General

I published the 24 articles mentioned earlier on the general site, and there was no income to report from any source, other than probably an immeasurable amount of AdSense income.

myLot

I published 35 posts on myLot in August, which earned $0.64, down from July and the lowest for a full month since I became active on the site again. I’m not really that active there; I have been too busy elsewhere that I haven’t been spending much time on what is really a fairly low value source.

bitLanders

I published 26 microblogs on bitLanders during the month.

Plans for September

I am still struggling to keep ahead with the role playing game supplements. I no longer have several weeks in advance and have on a number of occasions only that week’s release a few days prior to it. Yes, I have enough art-related items to keep me going for some time, but I’d rather that they weren’t the primary releases, as they don’t earn much. As yet anyway. Some of the planned later releases are better quality, and will probably not be published as Pay What You Want. I have started outsourcing, and one a month at least will help me keep on top of things. The outsourced items naturally do not pay for themselves immediately. Taking two years to get the money back would be acceptable, but I think they’re going to produce faster than that.

In September, I also really need to make more progress with the clothing site. Admittedly, I’ve been saying that for most of the year now. I will perhaps plan to get some more stuff ready for the electronics site as well. The general site and the science fiction site both have plenty of content to publish.

My Writing Progress Report for July 2017

Notebook and PenIn July I published 29 articles on the general site (23,906 words), 4 role playing game supplements (9,829 words), 15 articles on the science fiction site (9,646 words) and 2 blog posts (1,381 words).

The total number of words written in July was 67,942, up by several thousand from June.

Writing Related Earnings for July

AdSense income for July was £1.51, down a lot from June. The electronics site accounted for a the majority of the income with the general site coming in second. AdSense income as a whole, including YouTube income, was down.

Earnings from Tier 1 and Tier 2 advertising on InfoBarrel was $12.10, down from June. It will come as no surprise to find that I still do not believe the income statements from that site. Nor will it come as a surprise to find that the owners still couldn’t care less about the site or its once-loyal users, and seem perfectly content to ignore it for all but an hour or two a month, and still cannot be bothered to fix the vast array of things that have been broken or partly functional for most of the year. They are still paying, but that’s all that can be said.

A dollar sign.Amazon

Amazon US income was $20.31 with 11 items shipped, down from June and significantly lower than June last year, with all of the income coming once again from the electronics site. Amazon UK income was £3.25, with one item dispatched from the electronics site, up from the previous month.

It was Amazon Prime Day during July, and Amazon greatly promote the event beforehand. The effect this had was, well, zero – no sales at all on Prime Day.

eBooks

The four supplements mentioned earlier were published on RPGNow in July. One was of a better quality (in my opinion), one of the written supplements was pay what you want and there was actually a fifth supplement published, but this was stock art (I finally got to the point where I didn’t have enough written to publish anything else), and stock art doesn’t fall under writing, so that isn’t included here.

The total income was $305.36 after RPGNow’s cut, with 462 sales across 101 supplements. There were also a few stock art sales, both from the collection published in the month and from another, but the total difference here was pretty small.

This was the third best month to date, beating June slightly. The Christmas in July Sale, said to be the largest sitewide sale of the year, occurred in this month and the results were largely due to this, although one of the four released supplements did do well.

Once again, nothing to report for the Kindle platform.

Niche Sites

Nothing new was published on the electronics site this month but it accounted for all of the Amazon income and the majority of the AdSense income. The site went down at the end of the month and into the next, which probably affected income. I don’t fully own it, as I set it up with someone else. Unfortunately, this means that I lack the ability to fix it and they aren’t answering their emails. However, everything is saved, so should it ever go down completely I can still relaunch it myself. The inability to contact the other party is reducing the amount of time I spend developing the site and therefore the amount of income it generates.

I moved one new article into the new structure on the clothing site. Progress with that site is continuing to be much poorer than it should; more time needs spending developing it.

In addition to the 15 articles mentioned earlier I also published 47 posts on the science fiction site. No earnings to report from the site this month.

I published seven posts and five pages on the RPG site but it didn’t account for any sales or income.

There was no progress to report on the writing site.

General

I published the 29 articles mentioned earlier on the site during July. AdSense income was down a lot from the previous month, although it did account for some. Infolinks income was also down, with 3 cents being earned. The site has had a significant increase in content. Perhaps not a huge amount yet, but it is growing. I now consider it decent enough to potentially transfer articles from InfoBarrel if needed, although the advertising still needs tweaking.

myLot

I made 37 posts on myLot in July which earned $0.81, down quite a bit from June. I am still not spending much time on the site due to being too busy elsewhere. Truthfully, it’s not a site that’s worth spending a lot of time on.

bitLanders

I published 23 microblogs on bitLanders during the month.

Plans for August

I intend to release my first outsourced RPG supplement during August. I have been struggling to keep up with the one a week schedule recently, at least for written items; I have far too much stuff that’s had a goodly chunk written but is still nowhere near finished. I plan to outsource ideas I’ve had but which I’m struggling to develop at all.

I really need to spend more time on the clothing site. According to Long Tail Pro, it is starting to show up in the search rankings for a number of terms, but to take advantage of this content needs to be published a lot more regularly. Not only has no new content been published for a while, the existing content still has not been fully migrated into the new site structure.

My Writing Progress Report for June 2017

Notebook and PenIn June I published 29 articles on the general site (28,140 words), 16 articles on the science fiction site (9,723 words), 4 role playing game supplements (11,138 words), 2 blog posts (1,426 words) and 1 article on bitLanders (803 words).

The total number of words written in June was 61,442, up a bit from May.

Writing Related Earnings for June

A dollar sign.AdSense income for June was £5.78, up a lot from May. The general site for the first time made the largest amount of money, followed by the electronics site with some minor income from the science fiction site. AdSense income as a whole was up although YouTube was slightly down.

Earnings from Tier 1 and Tier 2 ads on InfoBarrel were $15.38. This hasn’t been ‘finalised’ yet so it’s uncertain how ‘accurate’ this is. The quotes are because I don’t believe the earnings as listed have been accurate in over a year now. Having income fall by two thirds between one month and the next, even though views have gone up, just doesn’t seem plausible. A long term declining trend, yes; falling off a cliff overnight, no. Not that the owners give a damn about the site any longer.

There were affiliate earnings of $6.90 from RPGNow. I can’t tell where the income definitely came from, as there isn’t any way of tracking that. The sales might be from InfoBarrel, as one of the products sold does have a review of it published on InfoBarrel and this article was viewed in the right time frame.

Amazon

Amazon US income was $26.88, up from the previous month, with 19 items shipped, including two that had been ordered the previous month. All of the income came from the electronics site. There were no earnings from Amazon UK in June, down quite a lot from the previous month, but Amazon UK does tend to fluctuate a lot.

eBooks

I published the four role playing game supplements mentioned earlier on RPGNow in June. Two of these I consider to be better quality supplements; other two, which were also published in a bundle containing them, are much slower to earn.

June got off to a good start with a single sale of, I think, 60 supplements to one purchaser, the largest to date meaning that the big sale from May was only the biggest sale for a few days at most, which was then followed by another purchase of the same size only a couple of days later. The total income was $297.87 after RPGNow’s cut, from 424 sales across 117 supplements, the third highest month to date and the only two months which have been higher were both due to sitewide sales during those months.

Once again, nothing to report from Kindle.

Niche Sites

Nothing new was published on the electronics site this month, although I did do some writing for the site. The site earned all of the Amazon income, as is common, but for the first time fell behind the general site in terms of AdSense income, although it still accounted for a significant proportion of it.

I moved another four articles into the new structure on the clothing site. I am still not progressing with the site anywhere near as quickly as I would like to.

As well as the 16 articles mentioned earlier, I published 44 posts on the science fiction site, which earned a minor amount of AdSense income as well as 11 cents from Infolinks.

I published four posts and five pages on the RPG site, but there were no sales or affiliate earnings from it.

Once again, there was no progress with the writing site.

General

I published the 29 articles mentioned earlier on the site during the month. AdSense income is gradually staring to build, with it actually being the biggest earner in June, although this seems unlikely to last yet. It also earned 5 cents from Infolinks.

Quite a lot of content that would once have been posted on InfoBarrel has been added to the site now, including material that has been ready for many months. It is unlikely that I will be able to keep up the current rate of publication for much longer as I have used quite a few articles already that were originally intended for InfoBarrel and maintaining an output of nearly one article a day isn’t always possible; for one thing, research can take up some time.

myLot

I made 34 posts on myLot which earned $1.11, up from May. I have not been spending much time on the site recently as I have far too many other projects underway at the moment, which will be better earners in the long run.

bitLanders

As well as the article mentioned earlier I published 31 microblogs on bitLanders.

Plans for July

Although I have many in progress role playing game supplements, not many are nearly ready to publish. Consequently, in July, I think that there’s a good chance I will need to publish some stock art rather than something written, as I have a lot of stock art items ready. I will also be looking into hiring a writer for my first purchased supplement.

The clothing site still needs the restructuring finishing and new content writing and adding. That really isn’t progressing as fast as it should.

Earnings for May 2017
