With my low profile, I guess all my detractors are sniggering behind my back that I am now ‘eating shit’ (meaning in the dumps) as I hardly make money anymore.
However, it is a choice I made because when I work too hard, I have no time for myself to waste leisurely and I have no time for God. Nowadays, I spend three times a week at a cancer hospital and during those times, I probably missed out a lot of paid posts to grab. Moreover, I have to sleep early so that I can wake up to go to ‘work’. But those experiences from my voluntary work is something money cannot buy. It is so enriching and I am blessed that with the right connection, I was able to do voluntary pastoral care in a cancer unit.
The other deal is I have to totally cut off all my online work if I am interested to pursue the course full time. The course I intended to pursue demands my full commitment and concentration. I cannot do that at the moment because it means too much sacrifice as it is a source of income for my family. I hope to be able to survive without paid posts and my sites all generate income on its own without me meddling on them. I have faith God will find a way for me, if God wants me to fully concentrate on doing godly things like that.
So, are you curious to know how much I made nowadays? Well, below is the screenshot. Remember that payment comes in on the first of the month and I have another batch that comes in around 10th of the month. Then, there is Google Adsense plus Nuffnang.
(breakdown of income has been blanked out because it is against some of the companies’ policies to reveal how much I made from each of them. I can only withdraw USD495 per day from Paypal to my Al Rajhi debit card)
That’s right, I am making meagre sum but this paltry sum is enough to feed my whole family. So, thank God for that.
So, how are you getting on with your online income? Are you making money from blogs? Does the strengthening of the USD gives you joy that you are going to make better income? I certainly do. I am not worried about increasing interest rates because I lived in a tiny home with a cheap car, all paid for. I have no credit card debts or any other debts. The higher the interest rates are, the better because my savings including EPF will garner more income. So, spend money prudently and you won’t get into deep shits if recession hits us. I had been there in the last recession in the 80s and people lost their jobs, properties and people suffered a lot. Be prepared for that. Making money online is a good option. Especially if you are making USD.
