Work, Dance, Work

I am working so hard to make an extra income at home that I had trouble letting a day and a half go by without getting all the stats for all my new sources of income. I went with my family for an overnight trip, and for the first few or so hours it was hard for me to stop thinking about the cents I could be making if I had my computer and an internet connection on the car ride. I have officially become obsessed with learning to make an income on line.

Today I have spent a large portion of the day trying to catch up on the tasks that I did not do while I was gone. I am going to have to stop my obsession to go to my dance class tonight and then rehearsal for the show I am going to be in this weekend. Then I will have to split my time between sleep/working and dancing. This is my life until after June 2nd.

The good news is that I have learned a lot of things about making money online and I am learning to weed out scams from legit sites. I am quickly raising my level of income from each avenue but there is a long way to go. Going from cents to dollars will take a huge time investment up front but it should pay off and keep growing if I keep up on the most important aspects. I must keep my eye on the big plan and stop focusing on the smaller things.

The big plan is to be able to make money from my blogs but not just with Adsense. While Adsense is useful it is not going to be the main source of my income. The plan is to look for appropriate advertising for each blog in combination with Adsense and write quality content on a regular basis. Some of my blogs are still going to be hobby blogs and they won't need to be monetized, but if there is a way to make a little extra on a hobby I am going to take it. Some blogs will also open the opportunity to write for pay and others will open new doors to make money in other ways as long as I keep my eye on the future. I am starting to feel pretty optimistic about this and even if I end up having to get a desk job later because I couldn't make it work, at least I can say I gave it my best shot.

I am working rather hard Extra Cash From Home right now because it has the most earning potential and I am really enjoying learning how to make money online and share it with others. I would love it if you would visit my site and tell me what you think.

Life is heading in a new direction

This has been a life changing few months for me so I have not been here to update my blog. My hubby was called back to work after eight months off and could be laid off at any time again. So the idea of moving is long gone and this blog was so focused on the moving to a farm I was afraid to change it up.

I also started dance lessons and spend a good ten hours or more each week at the studio and I have lost a ton of inches and built some impressive girl muscles. This is something I love and I am passionate about so it is also another reason I have chosen to spend money here rather than on a farm.

I didn't join a CSA either because we are trying to keep the food budget down. We eat a lot of egg based meals because we have the six chickens. I have been eating up all my Herbalife stock and we are not struggling but we don't want to have to struggle if Ryan gets laid off again.

The New Plan

So all in all I have felt like I continuing this blog would be a bad idea. Then I got to thinking if my readers still want to hear how I am making little changes to live a more natural and organic life maybe I could still write articles. I can't have farm animals other than chickens on my city lot but I can talk about the chickens and the things I make with eggs. I can tell you about the products I buy to help support a more natural way of living.

When I have the extra money I will join a CSA again and I will bring you news from the farm. Next year I also see me having a good sized garden as well and I am also hoping to grow some herbs indoors and in pots on the porch. I got to late of a start this year and I don't think I will get too much in the way of veggies.

I think we will start making plans for next years garden this year that way we will be prepared and things will run a little more smoothly.

I have several natural and organic magazines coming to my home and I will share things I learn from them as well. So if all of that sounds good to my readers and I get some responses I will keep up with that but I will not be moving from my city home for quite some time if ever considering if we stay here we will never have to worry about job losses again because our monthly bills are low here.
