My Blog Stastics and Revenue

Wanna know the statistics and revenue of my blog? 

I've had my blog for about 3 years now. The first year, I would actually post 8-10 posts a month. Now I've slacked off and only post about 1-2 time a month. Here is a snap shot of my page views: 

The average daily page views ranges from about 50-100. Most of them come from organic google searches. The following are my top posts:

I have never made any posts in an attempt to make money, however, my friend suggested using (affiliate links) for a couple of my posts (especially "Cheapest Place to get Contact") that were getting a lot of page views. So I did and whenever I write a post that has a product or website that I recommend I might put a link for that product. Honestly, there are very few posts that actually have these links. I have very little knowledge on how to create a website and monetize it.

So my blog does make some money (mainly from "Cheapest Place to get Contacts Lens"). Of course this has been a pleasant surprise/bonus for me. Now I get a check in the mail every month for about $150-$250.  Here are a couple of checks that I've recently received:

I also have Google Adsense Ads, but they don't really make any money...on average of about $1-$3 a month. 

There you have it. I'm pretty happy with making some extra money on something that I don't expect any money on. 

I recently started reading and listening to which has a lot of interesting information about making money in the internet world. Maybe I'll venture into actually trying to make money online if I have the time and desire....I'll let you know if I ever do anything. 


Cheapest Place to get Contact Lenses?

Where to get the cheapest contacts? About 15% of American's wear contact lenses. That's a fair amount of people and I'm one...
