Quarterly Earnings Recalculations

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!

    Not bad. But if something bad happens you will be down to a very low income really quick and it can take a while to come back. If I’d be you I would find the motivation to put in more hours really quick. The Internet is less predictable and you rather want to build up a cushion for rainy days.

    Anyway – congrats on those numbers.


  4. […] According to Tyler Cruz’s post he is making $7,709 a month so far. If you compare the data you pretty much can conclude that forum type of web site is a much better money making tool. The total daily page view for all Tayor’s sites added up together is about one third of John Chow’s. However it generated triple income of John Chow’s Blog. Also one of Taylor’s site is a blog which accounted for a lot of page views if we take it out then it will be even more obvious that forums are better money making machine. Another thing a forum doesn’t need to update that frequently like a blog. […]
