Hypercubed's 2007 Financial Report
condemnation celebration of tax day here in the US of A, I will now fully disclose Hypercubed's 2007 financial statement. In 2007 Hypercubed received $72 in 6 semi-anonymous donations via PayPal. The largest donation was $25 received from [name withheld] in support of Xinha Here development. These donations were burdened with $4.15 in transaction fees resulting in a net donation income of $67.85 (thank you all). In addition, Hypercubed blog received $200 from affiliate marketing. This one-time windfall cash influx is attributed to a single purchase of services from superb hosting by a Hypercubed blog reader that may have accidentally clicked the Superb Hosting affiliate banner then subsequently decided to purchase $1000 worth of services from Superb. Revenue from all other affiliate marking efforts were either non-existent or below the threshold necessary to received payments. In total Hypercubed's total net revenue for 2007 was $267.85.
Hypercubed paid $239.40 in hosting fees to DreamHost, Inc. These hosting fees were paid in 2007 for services to be rendered through 2009. Hypercubed paid an additional $39.80 in domain name registration fees. In total Hypercubed's expenses in 2007 were $279.20.
So all told my little hobby here has cost me $11.35 in 2007. Not bad considering how expensive alternative hobbies can be ($2500 for a camera, my god!). I could probably squeeze a little more out of this by strategic placement of ads and posting more often but, like I've said before, this is a hobby not a living.
