Financial Report for Year 2

Year 2 could have, in all reality, been better financially. But I am not complaining. There were many roadblocks, including surgery and a computer that didn’t make it through the entire year. It did, however, serve me well for almost six years.

The amount I was able to earn will probably seem like less to most of you than it does to me. I actually require less money to live on in the run of a year than most people do in general. Large amounts of money do not indicate success to me… and I had minimal savings to draw from for a few important things.

All-in-all, I am pleased. Here is my (short) run down:

$4,403.00     Demand Media Studios – flat fee articles

          27.48     Demand Media Studios – Revenue Share from articles and blog

            9.88      Y! Contributor Network Revenue Share, plus small fees



I still recommend, if you have a day job at this point to keep it until you can fully support yourself with the writing business. I did not have this option. Keep in mind that, with no roadblocks, I would have more than doubled this amount for Year 2.
