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.

Carnivals

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:

Well, that gets me caught up.  Hopefully, August will be a little bit better.  I hope you are enjoying your summer and getting out and active despite the stifling heat and lack of rain.  At least, we haven’t had any softball games cancelled.
