I Actually Made Money In 2019—$1.81 To Be Exact

This post contains Amazon affiliates which I may earn a comission on.

Last year, I tried to monetize my content which used to be on fgandiya.me. I did it through Patreon, an Amazon affiliate link, PayPal and Namecheap. Much like the rest of 2019, it didn’t go so well as I made nothing. No Patrons, no PayPal tips, an Amazon affiliate rejection letter and no sales through my Namecheap affiliate link.

Or so I thought.

As I was changing my social media handles to faraixyz, I went to change my Namecheap affiliate link. As I logged into the affiliate dashboard, I noticed the site header had this.

That’s right, I earned a whole dollar and 81 cents! That’s more than $0. I was surprised to see that I actually made money from my content. I don’t know who you are, but thank you for spending $9.06 on a domain. You gave me the validation I need.

Speaking of monetization, I’m going to give it another shot. Here’s how to support me with money:

I plan on adding other ways to help and you can help me which you can find on the /support page.
