Site Net Worth - June 2021
By now you all know why I started The Saving Dude and what we are trying to accomplish. Our monthly net worth reports are how we track progress and growth over time.
June 2021 was another month. Some positive momentum on the financial front and negative momentum on the traffic front. Eventually we will put it all together.
This past month we were offered money to write an article! While I have considered myself a "professional" writer already, this is really a thing now. It's not a lot, but it is officially another revenue stream and opportunity for me to branch out into other endeavors related to blogging.
The nitty-gritty is below, so check it out.
