September is the last month of the quarter and is usually a good month for display ad income.
I also bought a new site from Motion Invest and I am adding that site to my income reports.
Bought a New Site from Motion Invest (Domain Revealed)
I decided a few months ago to not start or buy any new site. But I found one that felt promising and also a good candidate for me to openly share and show how I build and grow sites.
So I bought it!
It’s in the Pet’s niche (about rabbits) and cost me $ 5,800. It had 99 articles and was making $139 per month (all from the Amazon associates program).
I have decided to use this as my public case study site, and you can learn more about the site in the video I made
The site domain name is WhyRabbits.com

What Am I Reading/Learning?
For September, our book club chose ‘Never Split the Difference’ by Chriss Voss.
This book is written by an FBI hostage negotiator about negotiation.
It’s a good read and has some really interesting concepts. The author explains these concepts using real-life hostage situations.
While there is not much that I can use from the book in my online work, it does have some powerful techniques that can be used in our daily life.
