It’s been a good week with securing advertising from other websites. I received a second supporting site for this journal this week which is a bit of a surprise. Usually it takes a bit longer to find advertisers that are interested in a site.
I haven’t gone into a lot of detail of our overall plan to make it so we can both work full time on the sites but I will touch on it here (and go into more detail about it later) Our overall goal is to build a system of 30 sites. We currently have about 12. The hope is to be able to create a minimum of $50 in revenue from each site in advertising per month and have the overall average for all the sites be $100 per month. That would give us enough to both work full time on the sites when considering the current income the main site produces. It wouldn’t be a lot, but enough to survive and we figure if we can both work full time, we can make the sites and income grow even faster from there.
It’s far from easy and takes a lot of work, but the plan seems to be working thus far. If we can keep on course and continue to attract sites that want to advertise on the sites we create, we should be in a good position to have us both working full time on the sites by the end of 2007.
