Past Month’s Happenings

The February report. Man…how time flies by! I can’t believe it is already March. It has been a long, slow process in getting back into the swing of things. I know many of you probably realized I have been out of the loop for a while now. There are multiple reasons for that.

Numero Uno:

I was taking a class to prepare for the Project Management Professional exam. It was twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5;30 to 8:30 pm. It lasted all the way from the first week of January to the last day of February.

Now that it is over, I’m hoping to get back into the rhythm of things. Now I just need to readjust to working out four to five days a week…lol.

Numero Dos:

I’ve been trying to focus a lot more on my writing. For too long, I’ve been neglecting what I feel is a need in my life, and that is to write, specifically fiction of various sorts.

I’ve decided to make a big push to self-publish this year, and the way I’m going to go about that is by publishing under multiple genres and under multiple pen names. This will allow me to practice all the skills I need to be a successful, selling author: obviously my writing skills, editing skills, my self-publishing and marketing skills. All of this while also allowing me to create passive income streams for myself.

Hopefully over the course of the next few months, you can actually start to see an increase in the Income Reports with respect to the books category. If things start to take of here, I’m going to report back on my findings. After all, if you never publish anything, you’ll never sell anything!

Numero Tres:

Working on the house. We’ve finally hit a point where we no longer have to actively work on the house to improve or maintain where it is at. We’ve gotten new furniture, installed shelves, hung pictures, painted, repaired, moved, and we have very few things left to do as of now (the landscaping is completely out of our heads…for now).

So, I look forward to not having to do house related things for a little while in the upcoming future. Now, without further rigmarole, let’s move on to the report!

The following are areas of note for February:

Day Jobs:

Nothing of note occurred in this category.

Advertisements:

Nothing of note occurred in this category.

Books:

Nothing of note occurred in this category. Although, as I stated in the “Happenings” section above, I am planning to start publishing works under a pen name to learn as much as I can about the publishing aspect, and to try to make a profit off of what I write, regardless if it is only a couple a bucks a month of passive income, it is something!

We shall see how that experiment goes, but I have decently tempered hopes.

Credit Cards – Cash Back:

Nothing of note occurred in this category.

Affiliate Links:

Wrap-Up

 

It has been a similar story over the past couple of months, nothing to report, nothing to report, blah-de-blah. I’ve finally had time to get back in the drivers seat, and I’ve been trying to spend A LOT of time writing.

However, this site is still a priority, and I am planning on hitting it hard in the coming weeks and months, so look for a solid revitalization of the website! Let’s discuss income in the comments per the usual. Have a great rest of your week guys.
