November 2015 Life Update

November 2015 Life UpdateOverall, October was a great month for me. For a moment, it seemed like I slacked off with the side hustling, but October was actually my highest month for earning side hustle money this year. I will explain that in detail shortly.

October is always a busy month for me. My birthday is in the middle of it. Also, there are numerous events that happen in Atlanta during October such as the AUC homecoming. I was on the go every weekend except for Halloween. I needed to take a break.

Being that I knew I was going to be busy, I got ahead by writing extra¬†blog posts. I usually do most of my writing during the weekend, but my job is very slow right now, so I’ve been able to write while I’ve been there.

Earlier I stated that October was my highest month in side hustle income this year. I love reading other bloggers income reports, but I don’t typically share mine for various reasons. Today I will make an exception. I made almost $340 in side hustle money last month! My eBay sales were $61.68. I also received my first Google Adsense payment. It took over two years for this happen. I have a strong feeling that it won’t take that long next time. ¬†Finally, I had a couple of sponsored content opportunities. That extra income felt great coming in, but I know I can and will do better.

I still have plans of paying off two debts before January 1st. I know I will definitely be able to pay off one of them without a doubt, but the other may have to be pushed back slightly. I recently had trouble passing my cars emission test. I had to spend money to get some of the 02 sensors replaced. I ended up having to borrow some money from my emergency account to get that work done. My plan is to replenish that before I go extra hard on that 2nd debt.

How was your October? Did anything interesting happen?

  1. Honestly sponsored content is where it’s at. It’s where advertising is headed and I only see it picking up steam over the next decade. Congrats on your best month yet!

  2. Firstly, congratulations for your fruitful October. October seems like a long time ago now. My children’s birthdays are on either side of October – does this count?

  4. Glad you will get that debt down, even though you might need to postpone one of them leaving. I know how hard it is to stay to a schedule.

  5. I admire your determination and preservation, and your ability to stay the course even with a few minor setbacks. You’re doing great.
