The diagrams are meant to show the following:
Earnings (potential) for May were $187.54 in total - my initial target was just $100, but at mid-month, I was hoping to be able to double that figure. I came fairly close, but found it difficult to take opportunities on PPP in the last week as everything seemed to be taken - possibly due to the new policy of holding opps open once 'accepted' for 6 hours. This means you need to get in at the start of an opp - or be VERY lucky and just catch an opp after it becomes re-available. I have 'simplified' my spreadsheet by taking out the 'payout date' as this is not necessary. I have only included 'accepted' posts, so I do have a couple of 'pending' jobs which would have taken me over the $200 mark, but will go into next months earnings once accepted. My overall earnings (since January) are $241.99, but of that total only $119.09 has actually reached my Paypal account at this point - most schemes pay after around 30 days, though a couple of schemes (Smorty & Creamaid) pay quicker. You can see from the speadsheet on the left that whilst Smorty, Creamaid, Bloggerwave and Blogsvertise have paid everything outstanding, Payperpost has just started to pay out and Ciao surveys have yet to make any payouts. I have included the very small revenue that I get from advertising (bidvertiser and adsense) on my blogs and continue to list the minute earnings from my occassional activity on MyLot.
I have been updating total earnings in my sidebar on an almost daily basis, and will continue this practice - NB this will be total (potential + paid out) earnings on the left in PURPLE, and total paid out in RED on the right - these figures should not be added together...
Drop a comment if anything needs explaining - next month will have to be dedicated to linking to drive up page rank so that I can do this experiment again as a PR3 or 4 next time!!!
