Internet Income 2020

I just took some time to count the internet income made throughout 2008 and it wasn’t much. Some bloggers are making my total month after month. I just wanted to know how I did in 2008. So I can do much better in 2009. After looking at what I earned and where I earned them I see what I need to focus on. For 2009, I really want to build a passive income that keeps on coming in day after day, week after week, month after month. So I am taking the time to study many different ways I can go about that.

Lets check out my gross internet income for 2008 Direct Ad Sales: $180

Ad Networks: $200.90

Affiliate Marketing: $125.95

Domain/Website Flipping: $371.16

Services: $217.05

Paid To Click (PTC): $58.77

Poker: $17.06

Total Gross Internet Income Of 2008: $1,170.89

As you can see the top income is domain and website flipping. I absolutely love flipping websites. I can create something beautiful, take some time to promote it and bring in an income, and then sell it to someone will take it to the next level.

My plan to build passive income is promoting online casinos and poker rooms. As you can see I started adding reviews to this website but I will be making a blog just for promoting online casinos and poker rooms pretty soon. Maybe ill pick one pokerroom to focus on and see how far that takes me.

From my research the best way to build passive income is 3 ways. 1) Have your own product. I am planning to write another ebook but this time it will have its own domain and I will pay someone to do the landing page. I just might get it into clickbank. I am not sure as of yet.

2) Promote a product or service that has recurring payment. Good thing for me, I started promoting online casinos and pokerrooms. I just have to take it to the next level and focus on promoting one or two casinos and/or pokerrooms.

3) Get affiliates to sign-up under you for affiliate programs. This can be easy at times and hard at other times. Most affiliates see a website name and type it in directly. You get lucky when you have the link in a very informative article or review of the affiliate program. Try to focus on getting affiliates to sign up under you for affiliate programs that will pay you 5% – 25% of their earnings for life.

I got affiliates for adbrite and widgetbucks but no affiliate programs that pay you for life. Those ad networks only pay you a percentage of your affiliates earnings for the first year. The income is nice, just wish it was for life. 🙂 So for 2009, the focus is passive income. Making an ebook, promoting pokerrooms, and getting more affiliates to sign up under me in affiliate networks and ad networks.

ARMY VS ZOMBIE – [IPAD GAME REVIEWS]

Who said Zombie cannot trigger a gun? This game is the prove! ARMY VS ZOMBIE is the push forward tower defense game which you will fight against troops of zombies holding the guns, riding vehicles from 20th century! Save the world from this invasion as you are the soldier who have been sent from the future with the high tier weapons. Cooperate with the allied force to get rid of the Zombies!

Available on the appstore

ARMY VS ZOMBIE from GRIZZLE is the push forward tower defense game like “Samurai VS Zombies” as mentioned in my previous review. The game illustrates the story during the world war II. Hitler uses his secret military tecnology to forming the immortal walking troops who never tire of fighting but more important thing, they can trigger guns! The situation of the battle is changed instantly, the world is now chaos in the Zombie invasion. In the meantime, people miserable with no hope. The soldier equipped with hi-tech arm shows up! the fate of the mankind is in your hand as you are the leader in the battle field! Blast zombies then capture all their bases around the world.

In ARMY VS ZOMBIE, You will control the man with a mech-arm and your mission is to capture the zombie bases around the world. The undead walking troops will be sent from the enemy fortress on the most-right of the screen. You can tap left/right to control your hero movement, once he engages the zombies he will fire his shotgun automatically as the range attack, he will kick the zombie if he approaches them in the melee range (I don’t understand! why don’t he punches em’ with his mech-arm!). By the way, only you cannot win the power of the undead troops. Recruit your comrade with the oil which will be increase in a period of time.

Like in “Samurai Vs Zombie“, the hero must be the strongest character who can be relied by the mankind. He will have skills which can change the situation of the battle field. The initial skill you will have is the big bang punch, your hero will charge the power on his mech-arm then blast out the punch! All zombies in the damage area will be pushback and stun for a period of time! After clearing the prerequisite stages, other useful skills like protect shield (by the way, in the game it shows at “prodect shield”) will be unlocked. One more thing, in some stages, there will be the mech-suit which your hero can jump in then Rock N’ Load!

The allied units are the important factor to grasp the victory in ARMY VS ZOMBIE as mentioned that only you can win this battle alone. The infantry unit will be there with you at the start of the game. In order to recruit them, you need to pay 20 Oil for each unit. Personally, I uses Jeep (35 Oil) to clear most of stages since they have moderate hp and attack but high mobility. If you play through the prerequisite stage, more unit will be unlocked. There is the healing units like Ambulance or other high attack with hp like Commander. As the exchange for the awesomeness, the higher tier units will consume much more oil as the summon cost.

This war could take long! the shop is the mandatory to place to upgrade the unlocked units and heroes as I mentioned above. Currently I have upgraded my Jeep to level 15 but not sure what’s the maximum level will be. You can design your own battle strategy, upgrade the units with the money obtained from each battle! Moreover, this shop also offers the items which reinforce your hero and the allied units, there are some useful items like the bullet which will increase the allied unit attack by 30%, you can choose the item your choice to change the destiny of the battle.

ARMY VS ZOMBIE TIP AND TRICKS – [IPAD GAME REVIEWS]

The stage in this game represents in a world map which you should clear in each stage then across to another country, there are 3 difficulties for you. In order to unlock all units and obtaining money and rewards easily. You should clear all of them from the “easy” one first. You can obtain more bonus coin from this easier as well.

Currently,I have passed to level 20. With the Jeep unit I have mentioned. In this game the oil consumption is mostly double for each higher tier unit. You should compared them wisely before upgrading any units. At level 14 Jeep will have 409Hp and 193 Attck, If compared with the summon cost which is only 36 it’s worthly. I use this unit with a gang of Ambulances (75 Oil) to push enemy back. By the way, my strategy cannot be done with the protect shield and Big Bang punch. Once you push to the front of enemy fortress and dealing damage to it for a while, there will be the large wave of enemy comes out for 1-3 times. What you should do is to use the big-bang punch to make them stun and let your allied firing on them. You could also activate your protect shield and stand in front of the battle line to prevent damage to your troops as well.

What’s your tactics? Please share it to us in our DISCUSSION BOARD!

In conclusion, ARMY VS ZOMBIE makes me addict to it. With a nice graphic and cool music that march you to the battle field. The gameplay is different from other tower defense game (Especially, for those who like to see Zombies firing the gun like me). When you struck in some levels you can also play the previous stage to farm up gold coin (That’s what I really like compared to SvZ). So many unlocks and tactics you can design. With the price of 1.99$ it is worthly!

Android Apps And Google Fragmentation

One of the biggest strengths of the Android OS is that fact that it can run on so many different devices and the global growth where they are now the market leader. Android looks to maintain that lead for many years. But it is that strength which has turned into its growing weakness which has manifested itself in fragmentation of the market. While it does look like Android updates are not supporting all the phones, a bigger issue may be the problems with Android apps which are not keeping up with all the phones which could be a bigger problem.

If you start to look at all the various types of phones which have to be supported, it quickly starts to show the problems that app builders have to contend with. Just look at the size of the screens across all the various handsets and if you have something that has intense graphics such as a game, you see the problems which start to emerge. A 4 inch screen versus some of the newer 4.5 and larger screens have to have code written for the size of the screen. If you have done that for Android 2.2, that does not mean that the same will run correctly under Android 2.3.

In the market right now, you can walk into a wireless carrier and find Android phones which are running different versions of the Android OS for sale. That is the basis of the problem and should not be the case. The bigger problem is that these different Android OS phones cannot always purchase and run the same Android apps. That is a recurring theme in the complaints that are being made. Let’s say you have an Android phone which is running Android 2.2 and your friend shows you a really great app on his Android 2.3 phone that you really want to have. It could be that you cannot download that great app because it is only supported on Android 2.3. This is part of the bigger problem that Google has to figure out a way to resolve for the long term and all the coming Android phones with ICS.

CNet is currently running a survey about whether Android phones are upgradable enough and at the moment, 70% of the responders are saying NO. While they only have 715 people responding, it is an indication about how people feel about the Android OS. If the general perception is that they are not, what is that going to mean for the market for those Android phones? Apple has proven that their phones going back to the iPhone 3GS can support the most recent iOS 5 version. There are reasons that the Android OS cannot duplicate this, but they need to come a lot closer than they currently are.

Most of this current rise in questioning Android versions came about because of Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) which is Android 4.0. When it was reported that Android 4.0 would not run on Nexus One it created a lot of questions about all the different versions of Android that are still in the market and being sold on new phones.

Hopefully with ICS, many of the app problems and compatibility are resolved. 0

Toddler Tuesday – The Love Nugget’s Christmas List

We had a very windy day yesterday that kept us indoors. I really dislike the wind and my new bangs agree! So besides a trip to the gym we hung around the house, cleaning, reading, playing and shopping online for Christmas gifts!

What!?! Christmas! I know, I know, we’ve just begun November but I’ve already been planning and shopping for Christmas. Not that I want it to arrive any sooner. I love October, November and Thanksgiving but I also like to be on top of my holiday shopping game. Especially with The Love Nugget. As most kids do, he wants all the toys, all the time… However, we’re not made of money and are on a single income so getting him things he wants becomes a little more difficult. I’ve found that by spreading out my holiday shopping, I end up spending less and getting great gifts at great prices.

The real point of today’s post is to share some Christmas gift ideas for kids. Since I have a boy, most are boy related but some could easily be gender friendly.

Leap Frog Factory Phonics, Leap Frog Numberland, Leap Frog Chat and Count Cell Phone, and Leap Frog Read With me

The Love Nugget is obsessed with Scout and Leap Frog toys. When you ask him who is best friend is he says, “Scout!” He has a laptop that says, “Your my best friend.” Whenever we see any Scout toys in the store he gets excited and asks for them. I love the fact that they assist in learning and he loves that they many can be programmed to say his name.

KidKraft Uptown Kitchen, Wooden Cutting Fruit, Mighty Mixer, and Coffee Maker

I prefer wooden toys over plastic as it’s a good way to cut down on the amount of toxins The Love Nugget is exposed to. They are easy to clean and very durable as well. The Love Nugget enjoys playing with the kitchen at Growing Brilliant so when I mentioned getting one he was ecstatic! Ever since then he keeps talking about having his own kitchen to go by his table. Of course to go in the kitchen we’ll need cutting fruit and kitchen tools

Basketball hoop, Nerf Footballs, Mini Golf set and fishing set

The Love Nugget is already loving sports and his new big boy room will be decorated in a sports theme. Which he’s excited about. So of course he wants some sports related toys!

Disney Cars racetrack, Tonka Garbage Truck, Disney Planes Remote Control, Melissa and Doug Puzzles

With boys come cars, trucks and tractors right!?! It’s so funny how they just magnate to certain toys. Before he had even seen the movie, he loved Cars. Now that he’s seen it, he wants the toys even more! He also went with Dada to see Planes and loved it as well. I think most little boys are obsessed with garbage trucks since they most likely get to see them weekly. At least The Love Nugget is! Which is why he keeps asking for a garbage truck. Oh and puzzles. When we ask him what he wants from Santa he says puzzles. Loves them!

That’s it for now. We’re off for a busy morning of gymnastics then Spanish! Fun, fun!

Don’t forget to check out yesterdays post and be sure to enter in the awesome giveaway I’ve got going on.

Review of the Nokia Astound from T-Mobile

Camera

First thing first, the camera. I love a good camera and that is what attracted me to this phone. I have a five year old at home and a new baby due in about 13 days. I wanted to have a good camera phone so we could take pictures of the baby and put them on-line, send them to family and continue to text our parents pictures of our son Logan. The number one thing that attracted me to the Nokia Astound was the fact that it came with a 8MP camera with flash. Not only did it have an awesome camera, it has a front facing camera as well that we can use to video chat with one of the apps from the Ovi Market. I can’t begin to say how the pictures turn out. The HD 8MP camera records in HD and takes crystal clear HD pictures. It even has a cool picture editor that you can edit pictures, add captions, draw, create 3D, sketch and so much more. Definitely an A+++ for the camera on this phone.

Platform

The platform the phone runs on is the Symbian platform. It’s not Android, but it still runs smooth, has great apps to choose from in the Ovi Marketplace, and seems (at least for me) not to bog down as much as when I had an Android phone. I can run several apps at once and it still runs fine. I like the fact that I can be in a phone call, go on the internet to look something up, and still be in that phone call. I work from home and can actually log into my web app work page and take a phone call at the same time. I love it!

Screen

The screen size is fantastic! At 3.5 inches, this screen is bright, crisp and shown in a resolution of 16:9 HD. Sometimes depending on how bright it is outside, I do have to put the screen at the maximum brightness to see the screen, but that was never an issue for me. I just switch the brightness level and I’m happy. The screen size makes it easy to view the internet and rarely do I have to scroll all over a page like I had to with smaller screen phones.

Sound

The sound is alright on this phone. It’s not as loud as I would like it to be (I’m a bit hard of hearing) but my husband says he has a hard time hearing on the phone as well. The speaker phone is really not that loud either; however, if you have a wireless blue-tooth in the car to play the phone through the speakers, it works better than just the regular speaker phone. Playing music when you have earphones on is fine as well. It just seems to be an issue with the actual speakers on the phone itself.

Email and Social Networking

Another thing I love about this phone is you can have more than one email account and more than one social network set up. I have both of my Facebook accounts (personal and business) set up on my phone. I have all 5 of my email addresses set up and never have an issue retrieving my email or updating Facebook. If you’re a socialite you can add your Twitter account(s), Yahoo! Messenger, work email, personal email like Yahoo!, Ymail, Gmail, even Cox and AT T; email addresses and so much more. I never miss a moment now that I have it all on my phone. If your friends add their birthdays on Facebook, you can even add them to your phone calendar with the tap of one single button. How cool is that? Now I won’t forget anyone’s birthday, and believe me, I forget everyone’s.

Web Browsing and Connectivity

Browsing the internet with this phone is a breeze. It is very simple and easy to use. You can add your bookmarks with the tough of the screen and again with only one touch you can bring up all your bookmarks. You can also set your home screen to what you like and choose who your search provider is. Since this phone supports two finger touch as well, it is very simple to zoom in and out to view larger text or make the text smaller. Turn the phone sideways and you can pretty much get an entire webpage and you won’t have to scroll all over just to read or look for something.

Texting and Swipe Feature

What I love about this phone is the Swipe keyboard. I love that I can just slide my finger around on the virtual QWERTY key pad and type in what I want. The predictive text is pretty much dead on for me. My fingers are not fat, but not small either, and I can text quickly and easily. You can use the Swipe to email, type in the internet, text and so on. What I also love is the fact that the more you text or use the Swipe application, the more words that you use get’s stored in the phones memory. Therefore, it will automatically predict what you want to say and bring it up for you. All you need to do is press a button and it inserts the word for you.

Battery Life

When I first got my phone I let the battery drain all the way till it was dead and the phone shut down, then charged it to 100 percent. I again let it drain till dead and then charged to 100 percent. I have not had a problem with the battery. I hear of people complaining about the battery life, so maybe they did not let the battery drain and then charge. With Lithium batteries to make the most of them you should let it drain completely and then charge it. This is what I do every day, and I never have a problem. I use it all day, let my son play games on it and it will last anywhere from 9 to 12 hours with heavy use. At night it usually almost drained, so I just let it power off on it’s own then charge it overnight. This also lets the phone reset it’s internal memory, just like you shut down your computer and restart it. Doing this will help save the battery life and phone memory.

Overview

All in all this is a great phone. I am in my mid 30’s and I love it. It’s really easy to use and set up. I love the screen size and color it has. There are some really great apps and games. My son is addicted to the Angry Birds game, and plays it on my phone all the time. This phone is so easy to use, that literally, my five year old can pick it up, unlock it, scroll to his home screen, and select the game he wants to play. One really cool feature I did not mention above it this flashlight on the camera. The flash can be used as a flashlight. So all those times that your power went out and you couldn’t find a candle or flashlight…..Well on this phone all you do is hold down the side slide button and the flash becomes a powerful flashlight! If I had to give my Symbian powered Nokia Astound a star rating I would give it 4.5 stars, only because of the sound issue not being loud enough for my ears.

Android Versus iOS: An App Developer’s Comparison

Thinking of writing mobile apps? The biggest two platforms right now are Android and iOS, and most people already have one platform in mind, based on personal preference or experience. But if it looks like it could go either way for you, here’s what I’ve discovered about Android that might help with your decision making!
Note: I am not currently a mobile app developer. After a lot of consideration, I’ve decided to learn Android programming, but I see a lot to like in iOS. I’ll try to share Android’s good and bad points in this comparison.

Advantages of writing mobile apps for Android

Android is, arguably, the easiest mobile OS to get started with as an app developer. Unlike Objective-C, which you would use to write iOS apps, Java has garbage collection. This means you don’t have to allocate memory manually … and if you don’t understand what that means, just take my word for it that it makes your life easier.

You don’t need a Mac or a Windows PC (although you can use either), just a machine that can run Eclipse. And putting apps on the Android Market couldn’t be simpler: Just pay a $25 one-time fee, plus another $20 if they’re pay-for. After that you can upload whatever you want, however often you want, without needing to go through an approval process. Other app stores, like the one that Amazon’s planning, will have different policies, but the Android Market’s on pretty much everything out of the box.

Newer Android handsets have NVIDIA Tegra chipsets and dual-core processors, for increased power to run games. Plus, with Android you can use the Android NDK, to write apps that use native code … and Android 2.3 Gingerbread just recently introduced even more capabilities to the NDK. Unity 3d, the popular C# 3d game library for iOS, has announced that it will support Android soon, and the upcoming PlayStation Phone may give even more leverage to Android game developers.

Disadvantages of writing mobile apps for Android

Android’s human interface guidelines aren’t as consistent as iOS’, and as of this writing they don’t have a drag-and-drop interface builder the way XCode and Visual Studio have. So while it’s easy to make an Android app, it’s harder to make them look right.

Because of the low barrier to entry to the Android Market, it’s easy for apps to get buried in spam and ringtones … or even cheap knockoffs and name grabs, like how dozens of “Angry Birds” apps flooded the Android Market before Rovio got into it. Moreover, you pretty much have to put out a free, ad-supported version of your app if you want to make money from it.

Why? Some people say it’s because the people who use Android and Google services expect to get stuff for free. This is partly the case, I imagine, but there’s also the fact that in order to buy pay-for apps you need to sign up for Google Checkout. Not only is that an extra step that buyers have to take, but it’s also not supported in many countries yet. And since most Android phones can install apps from outside the market — a feature I’m totally in favor of — it also means that it’s easier to download pirated copies of Android apps.

The Upshot

Android’s greatest strengths are also its weaknesses. The openness that’s allowed Android to spread across carriers, handset makers and hardware form-factors also means not all Android apps will run on all Android devices. The people who buy Android phones don’t have as clear of an expectation of what they’ll be like, and they don’t seem as inclined to pay for Android apps, either. And frankly, it’s Android’s low barrier to entry that’s the real reason for the huge number of apps on the Android Market.

It’s that diversity, though, that gives amateur app developers a leg up. You don’t need an Intel Mac or an AT T; contract … all you need is a 5-year-old PC box and a free copy of Eclipse. You can even write apps for the emulator, if you don’t have an Android phone yet. And while your apps may not look as nice as iOS ones, with Android running on over 40% of new handsets sold your friends and family members — and customers — just might be more likely to be able to appreciate them.

That’s part of why I chose Android … that, and the fact that it’s “organic,” open-source software. Clearly I’m in the minority, but what do you think? Scroll down and leave a comment, perhaps … and whatever you write your apps for, I hope you and your customers have fun with them!
