Income Reports

Over the years, I've enjoyed playing with this blog. It started out as a blog on general musings on life, pivoted into providing personal finance guidance / coaching, and has morphed into a focus on online income streams.

A lack of focus? Maybe.

But I've decided to keep it with an income-stream bias, but I want to add a dynamic to keep me more "honest".  Over the years I've perused many blog sites that outline how much they made from their ventures over a specific month. In other words, they publish a monthly income reports.

I have absolutely no expectation of achieving numbers anywhere close to the likes of Smart Passive Income. Crazy numbers! In fact, there appear to be quite a few bloggers making at least okay money in different initiatives according to this list, and my expectations are still lower.

But I do want to create mechanisms that make me a bit more accountable. It's also a great way to track my various income streams  and its progression (something I really should already be doing but I'm not doing very well). 

Do I expect to attract more readers to this site? No. I haven't made any effort to drive traffic here so far and a few extra musings won't change that. There will still be casual observers, people falling on the site and then passing by. That's what the internet is all about and that's why we love it.

What I do hope to do is use this blog more constructively as a way to record what I'm doing, why I'm doing it and whether or not it's been successful. It's part of my personal journey. Time to embrace it. 

So I guess it's "watch this space" and we'll see how this experiment goes.
