Happy National Toilet Paper Day

The funny things you come across reading the news. Yep, it's National Toilet Paper Day.

So, as you are sitting on the throne today, you can think of all the poor toilet paper that has sacrificed itself for your benefit. Too funny.

Pretty sure there aren't any parades or time off work associated with this particular celebration!

We don't read much of the news. And we certainly don't watch any of it on television. Most of it is far too depressing, and you can't believe half of it anyhow. Besides, I don't need to hear and see every detail of the bad things that go on every day.

That's not to say I don't like staying on top of what's going on in the world, but I tend to scan the headlines online and then only follow up on the things that interest me.

Ruth read something the other day about a couple who live full time in their motorhome and they make over $50,000 per month (yes, per month) from their blog. It's more of a financial blog than a travel or RV blog, but she does go into that stuff as well.

So I thought this warranted some more research, and it appears to be true. She's been blogging since 2011, and has turned her blog into a money making machine.

Her blog is very popular. She gets about 600,000 page views per month. In comparison, Travel with Kevin and Ruth gets around 85,000 page views per month.

So if she can make $50,000 per month from her blog, shouldn't we be able to make around $7,000 per month in comparison?

It seems like a pipe dream, and yet I can see how it can be done. I never would have thought that we could make $1,000 a month from Amazon, and yet it looks like we are going to break that level this month.

So more research is warranted.

  1. What a day to celebrate. Making money with the blog is a great way to earn a living and looks like this young couple are doing a great job.

    1. Yep, we all need to be thankful for toilet paper! :-)

      It certainly seems like they have a great thing going but I suspect that she/they spend a lot of time on the computer in order to do this well.

  2. I am glad you are receiving at least some token compensation for the truly significant effort it must take to publish meaningful posts day in and day out. It's what makes your blog constantly stand out from the dozens of others I have since lost interest in. Great job guys!

    1. Yes, that would be nice but we are also happy with how we are doing, it's way better then we ever thought but it has also taken lots of work, although we do enjoy doing it and helping people along the way. :-)

  4. It has to be one of the greatest ways to make money. You don't need to make much when you don't need much... Your blog is continuously excellent.

  6. Never understood toilet paper. People use it like their going to clean the house with it. Did you ever wonder why it comes in small squares? Eat right, have good flora in your stomach and by doing that, you'll save trees! Fact.

    1. Yep, I don't understand how some people go through toilet paper. I see it here at the campground when the toilet gets plugged up, way too much paper in the toilet! :-(

    1. Except that you may have to use up more of the 50 cent toilet paper opposed to the $10 roll of toilet paper! ;-)

  10. Is National Toilet Paper Day a Canadian thing? 'Cause down here in the Home of the Brave and the Land of the Free today (Aug 26) is National Dog Day.

    1. Looking it up on the internet it appears that it is both National Dog Day as well as National Toilet Paper Day both on the same day. I saw some references to it being National Toilet Paper Day in the USA and National Dog Day in Canada and then on other sites I see it as being both.
