Got Lucky with Some Passive Income
I wrote a little blurb about passive income over at Penny Thots explaining how it really isn’t all that passive initially as building a business or creating something does take a lot of work before the income becomes passive. That is what happened for me online. July has been a busy month with a week of vacation, catching up from vacation, and playing softball two nights per week.
As you may have noticed, I haven’t done squat this month on this blog and have struggled to keep up with the others (although I haven’t been doing all that well). That’s OK, since I do feel that everyone needs a little break now and then. Besides, I figure most people will be paying attention to the Olympics over the next several days anyway so I can gradually work my way back into the content creation mode.
Nevertheless, despite my lack of accomplishments (I last published here on July 2nd and mid-May on HubPages), I still managed to earn some money with the blogs and HubPages. So by definition, I am considering the income passive and am thankful for what I was able to earn this month. It is certainly not enough to quit my day job and become financially independent, but it is better than a stick in the eye.
Since I have been such a slug, I have failed to keep up with my carnival inclusions so I will be making up for that now. I have four weeks’ worth of links so bear with me. I also have over 800 articles in my reader and will skim titles quickly for the best ones. When the weather gets cold, I won’t be wanting to get out for softball or golf so my online activities will increase again.
Anyway, here are the carnival links:
