but now that i'm not doing anything that deals with products i think i'm finally getting a little more ahead....SLOOOOOOOWLY.
i have been so frustrated with how little actually goes into my pocket when dealing with making/selling products, so i am really happy doing all my work online and dealing in services instead of products. i see so many wahms that have so many really awesome products but it seems like unless you are super popular, a hyena certainly, that i don't know how you make any profit! guess it depends on the product...
not to mention that you may spend a LOT of time putting together your products. of course if its something you love, there's no problem cuz you just love doing it!
but i just felt like there wasn't a way for me personally (since i'm not particularly crafty) to make much of any money with products so i am very happy to have found my niche on the internet in mommy chats.
my money comes entirely from advertisements and events on my sites. its not much, yet, but its steadily growing. especially now with the biz directory on mommychats...i can't believe how quickly that grew! and recently i've been bursting with fun ideas for events and contests and such, and have grown quite a crowd of chatters, so traffic is picking up and with that comes more ads!
i love watching those paypal receipts come in for just a little trickle here and there...it adds up! when we need gas and its close to payday and we are broke, that paypal card sure comes in handy cuz there's usually a little pocket of money in there.
now if i can just get things going enough to be really drawing in what i could consider an income! i still only make just a couple hundred (if that) a month...but hey! every little bit counts, right??
