How I Made Money Online – May 2011

Every month I figure out exactly how much money I made online and I let you know! There are lots of ways to make money online, but you know that these methods will work.

How I made money online:


I am really impressed with IRazoo. I think it is easier to earn gift cards than Swagbucks (although I do earn more on Swagbucks, but that is due to my referrals). I did not earn anything with Cashcrate or Ebates this month, though I do use both programs. Ebates pays ever three months and they are offering a great sign-up program right now (join and spend $25 and you will get a $5 bonus and be eligible for a $30 bonus when you refer three of your friends). Ebates is also offering a bonus to old Cashbaq users that gives them the unpaid amount in their Cashbaq account simply for spending $25 at Ebates!

Blog Earnings

Blogging can earn you money. If you have questions on how to start a blog or how to make money blogging then be sure to check out my series on How to Make Money Blogging.

This month I made $374 with my blog. Keep in mind that a decent portion of that goes back into the blog (in the form of design, advertising, etc). But, still it isn’t too bad and if you have time I do recommend blogging.

I’m curious about the money you made from you blog? Was it from paid writing or advertising?
I understand if it’s too personal and you don’t want to answer, but I’m just curious. 🙂 Thanks

It changes from month to month. This month it was almost all advertising. May is by far my lowest month earnings wise and always has been. I generally make more on brand ambassador programs and affiliate sales, but May is just an “off month” for me. Send me an email and I’ll give you more details! I don’t mind at all. I have a series on how to make money with your blog (use the menu at the top and click on make money – blogging) and it goes through the programs that work the best for me.
