Yay! Three reasons to celebrate at Stewart Central.

Super exciting news!

The fun comes to you in three parts today:

1. Benjamin was recognized as a top reader at his school awards ceremony. He was the 1st grader who passed the most Accelerated Reader quizzes out of all four 1st grade classes. He took (and passed) 62 quizzes, and read more than 535,227 words - more words than are in Brandon Sanderson's Way of Kings. I didn't know he'd be getting the award, and I was so pleased when he received it. That's my boy! Since then I've been on his AR account and noticed that I only recognize about half the books that he took quizzes on, which means he was doing a lot of reading at school that I didn't know about (no surprise there) and that he didn't take quizzes on a lot of books I know he read at home.
He's a reading machine.

2. I got my first check in the mail for affiliate marketing. So fun! I'm making just enough money from the advertisements and affiliate links on Everead to be able to pay for the hosting (roughly $15/year). Success! I think it would be fun to do a more in-depth post about the monetizing I've been doing. Comment to let me know what your questions are and I'll be sure to answer them.

we found a place to rent!

3. Jacob got his officially-official letter of appointment from Connecticut College! We move in three weeks.

  1. Congrats on all the great news, Alysa!! I have all kinds of questions about monetizing! Here are three: How much traffic did it take to start getting your first checks? Was the money generated in little bits, off lots of posts, or mostly just from a couple? Was there a certain kind of content that generated the most clicks/money? It's all very fascinating to me!

  2. Thanks Lindsay! I'm so glad you have questions! I will do my best to answer them, forthcoming. :D
