For the last few months since I launched Ukraine Living and revealed it, I’ve started on three other small niche sites. They’re all growing and doing good (well, except one).
Good enough that Trouble has it’s very first part-time employee who writes on a bi-weekly basis for these smaller sites (you can rest assured that any and all content on this site is 100% written by me—or otherwise noted if it’s a guest post).
Man, if you’d told me when I left my job in February that I’d be hiring part-time employees, I would have laughed you out of the room. And while This Is Trouble has done quite well for itself, I am starting to see the value in building multiple streams of income.
I’m doing this with small sites like Ukraine Living. While it might seem silly that a site like that will probably cap out at $500 of passive income per month, this probably won’t seem so silly:
Site design: 5 hrs
33 posts*45 mins each (probably less): 25 hrs
$2000/30 = $66/hour pic.twitter.com/SgOjc55AMK

I won’t lie, doing the stat analysis and reporting about these projects does get a bit tiring and repetitive. I don’t want to do both of them at once.
So basically, I have two very, very different niche sites. I’m okay with sharing either one of them.
One thing is for sure, it won’t be publicly revealed right away. It’ll probably be well over a month. However…
I like to show them first (to show my gratitude for subscribing!) and also because I don’t want such a big impact right off the bat on the niche site; i.e. skewing the stats.
So make sure you sign up by so you can start getting the inside track of what is working and what is not.
Once you’re signed up, make sure you hit reply to one of my emails and let me know which website you want revealed.
You can also do that just by dropping a comment below.
Travel website or site targeted to women (relationships)?
Let me know!
PS: If you’re interested in getting your own site up and going, make sure you check out my side company Troublesome Solutions.
