…learning how to make money online takes time!

August 25, 2008 | By | 4 Replies More

Hi everyone,

Today was one of my typical days – running around with/for the kids the whole day, preparing breakfasts, lunches and dinners, getting everybody to do their homework, and get them to bed. A day can easily go by like that, and in the end we have the feeling we haven’t achieved anything. Know the feeling?

Since I have started my journey on how to learn how to make money online (about 11 months now – it takes time, but it is really worth it!), all I want to do in any spare minute is to sit at the computer and learn, learn, learn and (maybe) earn! But the days seem to be running away from me and I never get the chance to do so. It is again after 9pm today, before I can relax and sit down to write this post and “check some stats”!

The one thing I have really achieved in the last 10 months, and I am very proud of, is my first website, built from scratch. It is about Beach Theme Home Decor, because I love decorating and I also love the beach. It was a real thrill to see how the site slowly developed and got ranked in Google. I started to have visitors, and actually some customers! I have to admit, though, Google AdSense is the biggest earner on my site so far.

In the process of promoting the site, I signed up with Squidoo, – that is one cool site where you can create your own little “web spaces” (called “Squidoo Lenses”) and talk about anything and everything you want. Just check out my lens on Beach Theme Decorations and Tropical Home Decor. It is a lot of fun, and when you do it right, you can actually earn some money doing it, too!

That’s me for today, more tomorrow!

See ya – Petra :o)

(that is a typical Australian expression, I believe!)

    there are so many things you can do to Make Money Online but the easiest way is to put Adsense on your Blog or Website. I havent tried affiliate marketing yet but i would want to.

    Hey friend nice article. Will have a look out for your Lenses. Squidoo is a great site to use (much better than HubPages imo).

  3. Really cool, I love your site, it’s clean, tidy and monetized well with the ebay and adsense ads. Squidoo is one of my fav sites to get BL from and yahoo seems to love lenses, so I try and make them whenever I can.

    Important discussion. And I REALLY like that you employ what you preach. That’s when you can tell a post has come together.
