1. Personal Life
Yesterday, there was 12 days before my 6th month wedding anniversary and 26 days until the Bone Thugs, which is Meghan’s favorite music group, concert. I estimated it would cost around $220 to be able to make this anniversary gift come true so I had 26 days to earn $220 excluding any money earned from my daytime job (Carpet Cleaning). I had the idea to sell one of my sites to come up with that cash. One day later, this morning I was able to sell two sites for a total of $285. It was a very memorial moment in my Internet Entrepreneur life.

2. Sold 2 Sites
This morning with the help of Khalid, I was able to sell for $90 and for $195 with total of $285. This should greatly improve my daily average for this month. As I said earlier, I will be using $220 for the trip to the Bone Thugs Concert, $35 to reinvest back into my websites (probable buying more domains), $30 for bills. The total time spent on selling these sites was roughly 2 hours. I honestly believe no employer would ever pay me $142.50 an hour…

3. The LP Project
I’ve been really enjoying the writing experience gained by this project. It is 80% done and has earned $45.29. Keep in mind that I’ve only invested $10 in to the domain and nothing in the advertising. I am debating on telling everyone this site URL when completely finish or keep it secret.

For the last month, it has been averaging around 140 visitors a day. I am happy with its consistency. Anyways… A while back, about 3 months ago, I decided to have my brother update the site weekly with new flash games. Earlier today, I called him and he said, “I need to talk to you about updating the site”. I had a gut feeling that he was getting tired of updating the site… My gut was correct. He wasn’t enjoying it. I was fine with it because I understand that developing or updating sites aren’t for everyone. I’m pleased he at lease gave it a chance.

5. Advice
Set a goal and achieve it!


  • Congrats on the sale Bob, I'm surprised the eczema one didn't get more money, we'll chat over msn about it lol!

    Updating a site can be Tedious, perhaps pay someone to do it, I may know a guy who can help you out.

    I hope you enjoy the concert dude, you deserve the time off!

    Congrats once again.

  • Nice post, this is actually the first one I've read of yours.. I may read a bit further back and start reading it a bit more.

    Also, I noticed you lived in Sierra Vista, which is maybe a bit less than an hours drive from I live (Scottsdale, the rich town..). Anyway, I thought that was pretty interesting.

    Good luck and congrats on your sales,
