I wrote an e-book called Clean With Cleaners You Can Eat and put it for sale on the digital market.  I haven't actually done any marketing or stuff like that yet, and it's already earned money!  Although it did get a couple of nice mentions from Paul Wheaton during his recent Kickstarter.

I also set up a 50% affiliate on that product, so other people could promote it and gain their residual income badge from that.  hint, hint.

I run the website Wild Homesteading which is a blog. Through this blog I write about working with nature, homesteading, permaculture, etc. When appropriate I use affiliate links to products on permies and Amazon. My traffic has been growing steadily and I have been bringing in some nice income from my affiliate links.

I promote each post the week it goes live but then for the most part the post becomes passive and becomes a residual income stream.

In 2019 I have made the following.

Amazon Affiliate: $107.44

Permies Affiliate: $96.50

In 2019 I also made $26.67 from 2 products I put up on the permies digital market place. I have done nothing to promote those products--they were put up on the digital market to be part of the early-bird special for Paul's recent kickstarter. But I'm thrilled that people have been purchasing them too!

In total from affiliate programs in 2019 I have so far made $203.94 plus the $26.67 from my 2 products for a total of $230.61.

The following images are screenshots showing the amounts.
