This week I earned $714.51, all of which was from staff writing, virtual assistant work and advertising. That means for the entire month so far, I have earned $3,811.33, which I find mind-boggling!
However, not all of that money gets set aside for February’s bill. I immediately snowflaked the entire pay from one of my virtual assistant jobs plus an extra advertising deal I unexpectedly got. In addition, I had $211 in blog and PayPal expenses (including my ticket to FinCon12), so all told, between snowflaking and blog expenses, I deducted $610.75 from my earnings this week, leaving me $103.76 to put aside for February expenses for a grand total of $1,562.03.
