The big news for EPF this month happened just in the last week or so! Trent from The Simple Dollar linked to two of my posts, which brought a huge influx of traffic! Maybe a couple new commenters, too.

I think the pageviews and such would have increased over last month even without the bump from the links from TSD, but it’s hard to be certain.

Adsense revenue is back to normal levels after a small hiatus but we aren’t quite to $100 yet. Kyle also finally authorized hiring a professional-ish to design our header/logo but I think we’ll wait until we finally take a payout. New Republic Wireless signups have finally slowed down – maybe they will pick up again when RW finally releases a new phone model.
Search Terms from Real People
“how much do personal finance bloggers make”? Haha, that’s very dependent on the blogger! Most, like us, probably make zero or close. Many have a decent side income from it. Some make enough to live on and a very few get rich.
“didnot file 1099 for stipend is there a penalty” Most likely – if you owed any tax you will have to pay interest.
To all these searchers – if you’re married, keep joint finances!:
“keep finances separate or together”
“individual finances in marriage”
“whats better seperate or joint budget”
“bank account for discretionary spending marriage”
