As I wrote about earlier, I only added three articles in January to my eHow library. That wasn't my intention, but life got in the way.
As it turned out, only one of those articles earned anything: 35 cents. Which means that almost all of my earnings for January were passive income. Income that I earned for work I did prior.
So what was the result? My January earnings were $143.13, an almost 10% increase over December's earnings.
Regular eHow-ers know that things have been a little rocky over there lately. Bugs in the system make writing frustrating, and lately those bugs have extended to views and earnings. It's easy to get discouraged.
And still, with all the rockiness and life getting in the way of my article writing, I continued to earn and, in fact, had my highest month yet.
