Am I A Good Businessman?

    I post my earnings on my blog to keep track of how I did each month from what I do to make money online. It seems to be going up and down each month. Am I doing something wrong? I don't try to make money from my blog but still sale a few ad slots here and there. What you think I such focus on more?

    Here's my earnings for each month.
    Feb.
    Mar.
    Apr.
    May
    Jun.
    Jul.
    SEMrush

    Please know that I started with 2 websites, 1 domain, and no budget. I am doing good or bad? What such I focus on more?

    Keep at it. Find out what works well [From what you have done so far] and do that more, while not doing at all that which works and pays less.
    Common sense, but many people still seem to be doing the same things even though they aren't getting good results.

    There's very little I can add to this thread, I don't have much experience with blogging except with the software that's out to do it with like WP, and others. I can say this though, and I think lightless kinda hit it too, you need to find your niche. It's what you do, and is your corner. Hosting is kind of the same way. A lot of hosts offer the same thing, or very close to it. They have to do something different to seperate themselves from the competition. It's hard though, very very hard to do that. Look at how many cPanel hosts are around. They share the control panel, and offer similar stuff. It's hard to seperate you from the next guy. I think the same applies for you, if you can seperate yourself, you could do so much better probably.

    You have a good point

    Yeah, I am working on it.

    Slap yourself.

    I don't think that is my problem. Even though I don't try to make money from my blog it still makes money. My blog is there for me to track what I have learned, done, report income, and bring better deals for my readers.

    I don't want to be like many MMO blogs where they talk about making money but they only or main income is their blog. I want my blog to be my last income.

    A lack of budget would never stop a great businessman with a great idea.

    Banks and investors will lend money to anyone that can prove that they have the potential to make money on the money they borrow.

    Do you have a business plan?

    I sell ad space. I don't relay on ad networks to make money from the blog.

    The investors I know, only invest in real estate.

    I tried that already, they said wait until late this year when my credit score is higher.

    Wait in line my friend. I have a list of people who asked me to do a guest post.

    Businessmen don't deal with PTC sites, scammers and the naive do.

    Are you slow? Theirs people that are making a full time income from being a member of PTC sites. Not all of them are scams.

    Those earnings are pretty decent. You're doing a lot better than most people that try to make money online.
