Are you thinking about starting a family, but you’re concerned with the loss of one of your full time incomes?

And, like many first time moms, that is most definitely not the desired option.

It takes quite a lot of thought and planning, so let’s dig in and find out how much money can be made through this avenue.

If you are working full-time and also making a grand per month, chances are you are more financially comfortable than you were before you took on a side job. (You may also be more tired than you were before.) However, as you become more comfortable in your financial situation, you may want to be careful to avoid income creep.
The thought process goes like this, “I’ve been working hard, so I deserve to . . .hire a housekeeper. . .go out to eat. . .buy the kids an expensive toy. On and on it can go. If you aren’t careful, you may soon end up spending much of your grand per month, even though you didn’t intend to.

Well, February was a short month and that was reflected in the earnings. I needed about 60 days for the month of February to have turned out decent. Oh well, making money online with blogging is going to have good months and not-so-good months so I guess I got one of the poor ones out of the way. Now March can be better, huh?
In case you didn’t see my January earnings report, I will explain that this report includes all of my online earnings activities from my two main blogs, Cash Flow Mantra and this one, from AdSense, and from all of the affiliate programs to which I belong.
