Happy New Year!
Quarterly Earnings Recalculations
It’s January 1st, and so as you should know by now, it’s time for me to recalculate my earnings. As always, I calculate my daily/monthly earnings by taking the average of the past 6 months. I recalculate my earnings quarterly, so every 3 months, which sets my next recalculation date to April 1st, 2007.
As you can see, nearly a year ago I was averaging only $128 a day, and have been fortunate enough to have it increase each time I recalculate. Now, this makes me worried as always: How on earth am I going to beat this average the next time I recalculate?
In fact, I can almost guarantee you that when I recalculate again in April, that my average will go down for the first time since I’ve been recording my averages. This will be because I had two very good months in the summer, which won’t be calculated into the average next time. Also, the US poker ‘ban’ hurts as well. The only way I can keep my average increasing is if I start to work hard and focus on my upcoming sites. Realistically though, I doubt I’ll increase my average next time. We’ll see though… anything’s possible.
Anyhow, getting back to the graph, I must admit that I was pretty surprised to beat my previous average. I thought that things had slowed down (in part due to my shameful lack of actual work…) a fair bit and that I’d fall short. I’m now averaging $256 a day or $7,709 a month. That’s a $17 daily increase from last time.
That’s all for now, good luck and good earnings!
