Sadly, although the readers are going up, I am still not selling any e-books this month and the blog needs to be funded, and with nothing coming in a $30 outlay is a huge investment in publicity for me to undertake, when it has shown no income.
You can argue that getting sales takes time, and I would agree but the bottom line is outlay Vs income.
Publicity for the blog cost $60 last year.
Income from sales came to $16.75c.
As you see, I was out of pocket by a large amount and with the prospect of the same happening again, hard as the decision was, I had to make the cutback.
