The Intro:

Starting off with my first report, well here now is my second report.

Ive been developing web apps since 2007 and while modest income has come from them, I decided to focus solely on one real idea.  Most of my ideas in the past have been simple and fun, while this idea will truly turn into a company.  So lets go ahead and tell you.  I have built a few apps listed here and while none of them bring in a great deal of money, I have learned a great deal from them.  So lets go ahead and start it off.

The Money:,,,, and all have the same online advertising tied to them because mainly they don't all garner enough hits to do well on the advertising platform I like to use.  The only one that garners well over 2 Mil page views a month is, and while thats pretty significant, its an application that supports a very popular online game and web games don't make nearly enough in Ads to be well off.

So last month, I made +$118.00 from these sites. which sadly is about $30.00 less than last month.

I haven't built any new applications as a contractor since Audingo. App is Here, but I wish to.  If you know anyone that needs Mobile/Web/Desktop development in C# and Java, Im here to help and can be contacted at spoiledtechie&& I just had a baby and while insurance does cover most medical expenses, it didn't cover them all.

Two months ago, I built another Android Application for my self.  While it hasn't garnered much in the way of cash yet, it has been a huge hit among the Roller Derby crowd! 

I made +$6.09 from this past month.  Nothing to go home about, but its a lunch.

And to Pay for server costs for my various Web Apps, I paid out -$85.00 this month. I use a Virtual Server which costs only$45.00, but I have a few upgrades with these guys.

So for the Month of October, I made a total of +$39.09 this month in my spare time.

Whats Next?

I was planning to build out another web app and sadly its about 75% done to beta test.  But I have to focus on another project due to a new team member coming on board.  There has been a project I have been wanting to build for a while now and my team mate joined my team just for this project.  So in the coming weeks and months, I will be building something soo great, its going to change the way an entire way of thinking and executing is made.
