I don’t recall when I signed up for Project 24/Income School. It was in the summer for sure. July of 2021? I need to go back and figure this out. That would make sense, since it feels like my P24 deadline would have been summer of 2023 (I’m writing this retrospectively).

Google Search Console total clicks: 9.39k (6.92k)

At this time in 2021, I was contemplating how a direct link to my email list was leading to product sales, and bypassing the blog altogether. I was wondering if that was good/bad and thinking I could get product sales to $1000 before ads or affiliates. That never happened! Ads outpaced both products and affiliates and hit $1000 first.
