Side hustle income report – October 2018

Welcome to my October 2018 edition of the side hustle report.

Every month I write an income report of all my side hustles. I do this to track my income and to motivate myself (and hopefully also others) to make more money to invest. And with this money I provide some extra fuel my Vrijheid Fonds, in order to try to reach financial independence earlier.

For these reports it is important to understand that not all side hustles pay out immediately, therefore the numbers I present here are the accumulated revenues that hasn’t been paid out yet, but are in my various accounts. When I actually get paid, it is explicitly stated.

These side hustle income reports, in my opinion, provide a great look at how anyone can earn extra money outside of their day job.




With that said, let’s take a look how I did in October 2018. As my frequent readers know, at this moment I have five side-hustles going on to help me generate cash for my Vrijheid Fonds. In this post I will report my accumulated revenues for all five side-hustles.


Google AdSense

In October I published more posts than in September. And this resulted in a higher income from Google AdSense (do you think these to are connected 😉 ).

Unfortunately I didn’t find my mojo back to write a post every two days. But I’m working on it. Since a few weeks I try to publish a post every three days. And I want to try to keep this up till the end of this year. I know it is going to be a real though balancing act between work, family, Polliesdividend, side hustles, etc.

In October I have accumulated € 8.60 of extra income with the ads from Google AdSense. I still love every € I make with my website Polliesdividend.

The payout threshold is € 70, and with this month I’ve past the 60 barrier!  I’m almost there, wouldn’t it be great to get paid twice this year.

Thanks to all my readers and followers for your input, love and inspiring me! And with the help of you as a visitor, I hopefully will reach the next pay out threshold before this year ends. So come back, read my post, enjoy my ads and send me some love 🙂 .

Bol.com & Amazon.com

In August I had no revenues from Amazon.com. This means that my Amazon account is still standing at $0.67.

In October I didn’t earn some extra commission in my Bol.com account. It is still standing at €0.00. I can hear you say, ooh…. But don’t feel sorry for me, because on October 1st, I got paid by Bol.com (yeah!!). The have paid me a total of €10.52.

This was my first paycheck ever from Bol.com, and I can say now, that it tastes like more! And what a great time it is (or should I say: it will be) with the holidays coming up. So hopefully I will earn some extra commission during the holiday season.

But first let me take this opportunity to thank every person who bought something on Bol.com through my website. Thank you, I really appreciate it!

Euroclix is the longest running savings program in The Netherlands. With this program you can earn money by reading emails, participating in surveys, buying stuff on the Internet and using their Credit Card. For my Dutch readers I wrote a post about Euroclix. If you haven’t read it already, take a look at: A post for my Dutch Readers: Waarom gebruik ik Euroclix als “bijbaantje”?

Yeah, I know that Euroclix won’t to earn me a full income. I just see it as some nice extra cash I can earn with a little bit of effort. I estimate that I can earn around 70 euros a year.

If you’re Dutch and also want to earn a little bit of extra cash, sign up with Euroclix, it is free. You will receive a registration bonus of 2 euros immediately upon registration. Have fun and success with earning some extra cash!

Euroclix gives you points (clix) for every survey you fill in; furthermore you earn clix by ordering stuff (books, electronics, hotel bookings, etc.) on the Internet and when you use their Credit Card.

In the table below I will show the number of clix I earned in a month.

Month Revenue
January 801
February 765
March 1,175
April 1,649
May -3,847
June 1,634
July 510
August 714
September -4,486
October 1,190
Clix from 2017 1,328

1,375 clix

When I reach the threshold of 5.000 clix, I will order Euroclix to pay out and that moment I will receive € 70. This year I already made € 140 from Euroclix and I put it to work for me.

If you also want to earn some extra cash, just try Euroclix and sign in.


Member’s board

Regular visitors of Polliesdividend know that I’m a member of the member’s board of a local financial company. This board organizes at least 4 meetings every year on financial issues. As a member I’m asked my opinion about financial issues and what I recommend as the best strategy for the company on these issues.  When I attend a meeting I get expenses paid. There was one member’s board meeting in September, which got paid out in October. I got paid out € 90.


A dream doesn’t become reality through magic;

it takes sweat, determination and hard work


This side hustle paid me €450 already this year. What a great side hustle, I got paid by doing something I love, talking about money and investments.



October was a good month for my side hustles. I received my first payment ever from Bol.com. Furthermore I have found my way back up again with my Google AdSense income. And I hope to reach their payout threshold before this year ends.

Thanks to all my visitors and thank you for finding my ads attractive 🙂

I appreciate all of you who take the time to read my updates and follow along my slow and steady journey to financial freedom.

Do you have suggestions on how to improve my online income? Do you have any book suggestions about this topic? And if you have any questions for me about these side hustle reports, feel free to leave a comment down below.

I like to hear from you.
