My InfoBarrel earnings for May 2011 and Free Photos for Your Articles

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 1 11

In May I earned a total of $110.06 with InfoBarrel. This was an increase from last month, but I am nowhere near the total I want to be at. You can scroll down and see my InfoBarrel earnings chart for each month I have been a writer here.

My numbers are not yet where I want them to be. I will continue to contribute content to InfoBarrel as I want to see my earnings increase. I crunched some numbers yesterday. Out f the over $1,500 in total I have earned with InfoBarrel, about 34% of that is all from my top 10 earning articles. These are consistent earners.

This month my writing goals are to write a lot for upfront pay. In addition to writing for a lot of upfront pay I want to submit at least 50 new articles to InfoBarrel. Out of my top earning articles all of them have been articles that I have written, and not outsourced.

I have been slowly developing other means of earning off of Adsense, but all of the earnings I share in this article and the earnings chart are my earnings only from Info barrel.

When I write for upfront pay I get to write a lot of articles, but I don’t always like the topic. InfoBarrel is a fun release as I can write about anything I want.

I still want to get 4,000 articles published on InfoBarrel. It will take me sometime to do this because I have to write so many articles for upfront pay. Imagine having 4,000 articles published on Info Barrel.

Free Photos to Use on InfoBarrel

I have licensed the vast majority of my photos at Flickr to be used commercially for free under attribution. Out of all 290 photos I have published I only have 2 that I have not licensed. You can use any of the pics that have a creative commons license anywhere you want to. I do ask for a link back or credit.

You can use any of the pics on my Flickr account with a creative commons license for InfoBarrel articles with no link or attribution needed. Feel free to use as many as you want to for InfoBarrel articles. I know that finding images to use can be hard sometimes.

I got a new Pentax KX camera and have been shooting pictures like crazy. There may or may not be any images on my Flickr account you can use for your articles, but feel free to use them if you need any.

Upfront Work

If you need a writer for any articles then feel free to shoot me a message on here. Let me know how many articles you need, what you are paying, the topics, and I will get back to you. I will be writing everyday this month. I have some work lined up, but the topics seriously bore the hell out of me. 

I love InfoBarrel and look forward to continuing to increase my earnings here. I will keep writing and increase the number of articles I have posted here on Info barrel.

Thanks for letting us use your pictures. I did a quick scan through them. You have some nice shots.

Thanks Dpeach. I am still learning to use the new camera but I am sure having a lot of fun with it.

Is there a reason why your goal is 4,000 articles?
Jun 2, 2011 8:46am
I have a low average per article earning, I figure when i hit 4,000 articles I will be earning at least $1,000 a month with IB, even on a bad month. It is more of just agoal fro myself to work towards.

It's always good to have goals and I think your article helps people like me to have a reaslistic expectation for their potential earnings on Infobarrel.

Most writers on InfoBarrel with a lot of articles have a higher per article earning average then I do. My earnings should be considered a "worst case scenario". lol

Ernie hi there! I have to say thanks for being so consistent with postings on here about your earnings, I am just a beginner as far as online writing is concerned, and after taking a look around the web it looks like InfoBarrel is the way to go. I was worried about writing for a site like IB, because shortly after I started learning about article writing for residual income, I also learned about the google panda which made me think that I was getting into this at the worst possible time! But these posts that you have been writing are very encouraging. Thanks!
I do have some quick questions (that you might not want to answer because you didn't answer it in the article). What did you mean by developing other means of earnings off of adsense? And how many articles in total do you write each month, i 19m assuming you are a full time writer? Anyways I 19m not tying to intrude, I was just curious. So its all good if this is private info.

Thanks for the inspiration, and good luck with your goals!

I run other websites and monetize them with Adsense. I have a couple of forums, some blogs, a small bookmarking site, and some misc. Niche blogs. I concentrate mainly on InfoBarrel, but I like to split up my time with some of my own projects.
I do write full time. Most of my articles are written and sold for upfront pay. I prefer to publish on InfoBarrel so I can continue to earn off of them, but upfront pay is what is paying my bills currently.

I know that the more passive income I build up then the less I have to write for upfront pay. I have an eventual goal of reaching 4,000 total articles published on InfoBarrel. I still have a long ways to go for that.

The amount of articles I publish on InfoBarrel each month varies drastically, but you can see from the chart above how many I have written each month for InfoBarrel. Between upfront pay, IB, and my other websites I write a lot of articles each month. Last month I wrote around 200 articles. Some months I do more than this and other months much less. Some of the articles are only around 200 words, but most of them average around 550 words.

If I could dedicate 100 percent of my energies into IB I feel I would be able to build up an awesome monthly income with InfoBarrel.

I get very tired of writing articles in general, but I still love to do it for InfoBarrel. With IB I can write about almost anything. I will continue to post monthly earning reports so as to share how good or bad I do each month with IB.

Thanks for the comment. Comments such as yours also provide great inspiration and motivation to myself!
