I don’t have a ton to talk about this month. I worked on my niche sites a bit, but didn’t see any results from the work I did yet. That is fine, I’m feeling okay about my online business ventures.
As always, there are affiliate links in this post. None of the programs here cost you anything to use, but if you sign up through my affiliate link I will receive compensation. I would never recommend something that I do not use myself, and I would appreciate the support if you sign up through my links.

My traffic is down, I could blame the new Google Hummingbird update, because my rankings shifted when that rolled out, but it doesn’t really matter. Just need to move forward.

I really got an inch to make more Squidoo lenses towards the end of the month. I didn’t, but I may try a few this month and see if the site has gotten it’s sanity back.

I cashed out twice in September and didn’t have any problems getting paid. I got out of the habit of writing there, but I’m trying to post more in October. Read about my Bubblews routine here.

Other Online Income
Many of these sites pay out in gift cards, or record their earnings through points, instead of dollars and cents. I have done the math and come up with a dollar equivalent for every point, and that is what I am reporting here.
As everyone should realize by now, I love exploring new income sources. New additions this month are Receipt Hog, an app that gives you rewards for scanning your grocery receipts, and SheInside, a clothing site with a generous rewards program. I haven’t cashed out at either of the sites yet so I can’t completely vouch for them, but I am earning.
Qmee, the browser extension I started using last month, continued being awesome this month. It is simple, just shows you ads based on your usual searches. It doesn’t intrude on a websites normal ads, and pays you for clicking on them. You can cash out to PayPal even if you only have a few cents.
Bing Rewards: $9.05
Receipt Hog: $0.40
