Blog Moved

All the blog posts, comments and images have now been transferred to my WordPress site. All new blog posts will be here, although I will still leave this blog in place.

Redoing Corporate Site and Blog Move

I've finally got around to starting to update my corporate site here. I've decided to go with WordPress as the underlying software for the site. There are so many plugins available that it can be reconfigured any way wanted. I've also moved the web host from Host4Profit to HostGator.

Host4Profit is the oldest of my current web hosts, and the most expensive, so I finally got around to moving.

Once the site is up and running, I'm going to import all the posts from here and continue with new ones on the WordPress site. I'll leave this blog up and running, although nothing new will be added.

New Flash Game

I've released another Flash game I've been working on for a while, Captive Queens. This is a solitaire game.

Actual Earnings for February

This is money that was actually received during February, not just theoretical future earnings.

eBay Earnings:

Profit: -£2.00

This was actually a loss this month, because I didn't sell any items for profit, only some personal items which aren't included. Due to poor performance in January, however, I didn't start re-listing items until almost the end of the month, so many of the expenses listed are for items that are still running.

I did reach Top Rated Seller during February, which, unlike Power Seller, is displayed in the listings.

Flash Earnings:

MindJolt: $558.47

Web Directory Advertising:

This is after deducting PayPal fees. $103.88

Total Earnings for February:

-£2.00 and $662.35

MindJolt Earnings for February

The total earned from MindJolt for February was $18.14.

This now includes a small earning from Picture Find, which had to migrate to MindJolt's ad API at the end of the month. Unless the performance of this API significantly improves, this will result in lower overall earnings.

New Flash Game

Not that new as it's been sitting on my computer mostly done for about a year and a half, but I've finally released Picture Find 2: Landscapes. This is pretty much the last AS2 game I had done, which is why it's been sitting around for so long, because I've since been programming in AS3. The only other incomplete game I'm probably going to port to AS3, as it isn't working properly anyway.

Kongregate Earnings for February

The earnings from Kongregate for February were $0.06, once again pretty pitiful.

Even though Christmas Pairs finally came out of judgement with a "Good Game" (over 2.50) rating of 2.77, it still hasn't achieved much.

Fizzy Earnings for February

The total earned from Fizzy for February was $7.35, the lowest for quite some time.

I still haven't received the affiliate payment yet, although I have contacted them and they've apologised for the delay. My payment status is still showing as incomplete though.

MochiAds Earnings for February

The total earned as a developer from MochiAds for February was $28.26, again down from the previous month. Impressions were substantially decreased from the previous month. Once again, Pyramid Solitaire was the highest earner, followed by Picture Find. From this point on, however, the total earned by Picture Find from MochiAds will be substantially lower, as it has now had to convert over to MindJolt's new ad API, which is where most of its' revenue was coming from.

Earnings as a publisher were $0.44, down substantially, although impressions here had also decreased.

MindJolt Payment Received

I've received a payment from MindJolt for $558.47. This is for earnings from December, and the first payment received from their new ad program.

Unfortunately, I would by my estimates have received at least a couple of hundred dollars more using MochiAds, due to the poorer eCPM and deliberate skips from the MindJolt ads.
