I'm a professional coder, or rather I was. Since covid the jobs market has utterly collapsed and now my resume looks out of date and employers just tell me that SEO is "not real coding".
Well who cares because I want to make a full time income from my making money online activities. Let's set the goal at $2000 a month because that would definitely be enough for me to live on.
Backstory: I've made money online since 1998 and my total earnings are 120,835 GBP. It's actually more than that because all of that money was invested into stocks, bonds and property. My first online business was selling software tools, then I got into blogging (relationships stuff mostly) and now I build useful stuff with .NET Core and SQL.
Last year's update: After hitting a trough of about $210 a month my online income exploded due to something I made going viral.
In December I lost yet another job but 2 days later I had the idea to clone my hit product. Since then I have built 4 new sites and rebuilt a blog into a more useful site.
In February I made $1003 so I'm kind of half-way to my goal. However, my main money earner is fading a little so I need to do a lot more to reach my goal.
In this thread I'll post my successes and failures.
