My problem is I have some pretty tight financial goals as is, so taking the extra money from my regular paycheck just won’t fly. So instead, I’ve decided to use the money I make from blogging to start traveling to more exotic locations during the times that my family go on vacation.
Unfortunately, my blog currently doesn’t generate that kind of money. After all, for the first five months, I only made $5.00 via Adsense. Fortunately, every now and then I actually make $5 off of my site (not always, but occasionally). It’s a far cry from when I first started, that’s for sure.
During my last vacation, I did a little blogging experiment where I would try to blog everyday while I was on vacation. While I did fairly well, I did miss a few days. Even with the few days that I missed, I would call the experiment a success. It was a success because I was able to squeeze the articles in during slow times back a the house we were renting.
The nice thing about blogging is it’s not really location specific! So I could be in Japan or some other far away place and nobody would know it as long as I kept publishing my articles. From that sense blogging is the perfect job because it’s so mobile.
The first baby step that I’m going to tack towards my goal is to get passports at the end of next year for the entire family. I hope to go to Hawaii next year, so I figured I would start the “acquiring the passport process” for the year following our Hawaii vacation.
After 2012, I would like to try traveling at least once a year to a different location in the world. I hope I can generate enough income from this blog to fulfill that dream.
Time will tell,
