I like helping people out alot. If you want to monetize your blog, you have to try plenty of different things. You have to find what works for you. And basically once you find that thing, you need to grab it and run with it.
Widgetbucks is an interesting way to make money. Its ads look great, and they really make you want to click them. I can hardly resist clicking my own. But they have good deals. Check it out on the sidebar to the right, they give you $25 just for signing up!
