    I was earning a very decent amount of money from some income sources that i thought were "Permanent" , So i went out and spent it on a few new toys (Ipad 2 , macbook air and other bits and pieces totalling around $3000-4000) and when i got back i checked my income sources and all of them dropped to around 1% of what i was earning whilst a few hours ago i was earning a good bit of cash , So it goes to show that even the most steadiest looking income sources can drop within a few hours. Just a bit of advice , Do not stick to one thing , Do not rely on one single income source because if you loose your income source then i can say its pretty shitty.

    Back to the drawing board.

    Income sources were from Facebook PPC.

    I haven't had any good experience with FB PPC but thank you for sharing. What do you think you will try next?

    edit: btw, what do you mean "bucked"?

    Its not a silly post.

    Its just some advice to show that you cannot rely on one single income source. FB takes a while to setup and get it moving.

    @Stoner , Why would i reveal my methods if it made me a good amount of cash? Would you?

    Sometimes you need to get a good slap so that you will learn something. I sure know I did!

    Backup ads, and backup accounts FTW!

    I'm not asking or expecting you to disclose methods that worked (nor do I think anyone else was actually asking that)...but more along the lines of what you did that got your income nuked like that.

    lol this is internet dude...place where you can get rich in a single day and lose all of your earning the next day..

    it feels like roaller coaster indeed, hence why you should invest some of your earning in more stable business (like offline investment for example). I had days when I earned more than $20K/month back in late 2008 and a year later i earned almost nothing...

    it's fun to do affiliate marketing and all that considering you can make it passive income source but it's never stable no matter what you do...unless if you own website with a lot of loyal visitors, way more stable that way lol
