One Year Income Statement for The Frug Life (Podcast)

One year later, and the podcast is still going strong. I thought I would share some of my metrics for those who are interested. I always find it so interesting to see the business aspect of some of my favorite podcasts and Youtube channels (sometimes more interesting than the content itself). So here are some of my metrics for the last year of podcasting.
Here is my profit and loss statement for the past year, as well as a screencap from my Stripe account. The Stripe balance roughly should equal the ad revenue plus contributor income in the statement below (the difference is timing, as I didn’t pull the wallet balance exactly one year after the podcast started).

As you can see, the podcast made most of its revenue from the dynamic ads enabled on each episode. I also made some money from someone signing up for Robinhood as well as some money from a subscription.

Earning via Cash Alarm

A user on Reddit wanted some more information on my earnings on an app called Cash Alarm, so I have created this post as I can’t post screenshots on Reddit. How viable is this as a source of passive income? Lets look at the numbers. Here is my total hours on the app:

Or in a table:

Hours "played"
Game 1
Game 2
Game 3

And here is my total earnings on the app:

I have had one pay out of $2.5 and 20,484 coins, which is equal to about $2.11. With some quick math, that means I have made about $.15 a hour from using app flame. Time to earn on a given game increases exponentially. As you can see in the first screen shot, I have to play 26104 seconds to earn just 124 coins. In my other two games only a faction of that (1,000 or 3,000 seconds) is needed. With that in mind, I probably will uninstall the app after I can cash out. The first $2.5 was quite easy to earn. If you are probably going to game on you mobile device anyways, I would recommend trying it out and getting that easy $2.5.

If you are interested in trying the app, here is my referral Link you will get 4444 coins as a start-up bonus.
