Alright, so when I first started this website I only had one intention. To make money. Being a new webmaster, the allure of success stories like those of John Chow and Steve Pavlina inspired me to begin monetization far too early.
If you have been reading my blog for a while, and I know some people do due to my Traffic stats , you will notice that I have taken down most of the ads, and affiliate programs.
The reason behind this is simple. Today, 3 months into my blogging endeavor, I read John Chow’s free E-Book. If you haven’t read it please go sign up for his newsletter and get it HERE completely free.
He writes in his book about how you shouldn’t write for google, and puts an emphasis on writing for your readers. I have failed in so many ways to create value for my readers. I am going to be much smarter now about how I make money on the web.
I will be keeping detailed reports readily available on this blog. And If you are one of my loyal readers, I do appreciate your continued support.
Be looking for more frequent updates, better content, and overall more value and bang for your non existent buck! I will no longer write niche posts for google, or any other search engine for that matter. I will be writing for you.
Now for the good stuff! Here is a detailed list of my November profits from this blog.
Getting stories to the front page of digg: $150
Selling email lists: $15
Not bad eh? I know to most people this would be quite the accomplishment. But, for the time I invested it was not a good return on investment. So I’ve decided to go with the more organic route after reading John Chow’s book.
Love and Regards
