May 2011 was our best month ever!
Baby RB40 turned 3 months old and he is a lot easier to deal with than before. He still needs constant attention, but at least now he sleeps up to 6 hours at night. I can concentrate a bit more on the blog and I think the content is a bit better than when I was so tired all the time.
Here is the our statistic from Google Analytic
We had a big uptick in referral traffic this month thanks to our friends at
Budget Are $exy – J$ is always entertaining. He is a great role model for someone who wants to quit the day job and make his living online.
The Passive Income Earner – Excellent information on dividend investing.
Young & Thrifty – Y&T is a Gen Y blogger that give me a glimpse into the younger generation’s mind. 🙂
Our best keywords are “retire at 40” and “retire by 40”! A lot of people must be thinking about early retirement as they near 40.
As for income, we are still small time.
Google Adsense – $25 It’ll take a few more months before we get the $100 check. Hopefully we’ll pick up more clicks every month!
Paid Post (I wrote a post for another website) – $25
Sponsored Post (A post at Retire By 40) – $75 ($45 payment still pending)
Total – $125
That meet my goal of $100/month for now. Yippee!! 😀
Plan for next month
- I’ll finally invest more in Retire By 40 by getting a nicer banner and logo.
- I need to figure out how to contact advertisers. Up to now I’ve only been working on the blog and waiting for advertisers to contact me. It’s probably time to go out and seek some sponsors.
- Sign up to host more Finance Carnivals. This is probably the best way to build links.
- Come up with some idea for a niche site or two. From what I read, niche sites are the way to make money on the internet.
Lastly, Thank you to all the readers who stopped by! We really appreciate you! 😉
