Here is my earnings report for the month of October. Note that I did a lot of switching around my focus from week to week, so there wasn't a lot of concentrated earnings.
Mahalo - $458.00 (only about $20.00 of this was passive earnings)
Demand Studios - $47.50 (only wrote a couple articles)
Examiner - Pennies (didn't write anything in October)
eHow - zero with 3 articles
Suite101 - $0.76, 3 articles
Adsense - $12.80
Not too bad for extra side income with writing. Now to get more of it to be passive...
