New year, new you, new activities for your kids. Is this is the year that Sam wants to learn to play the violin? Or Suzie wants to take up dancing? Or you need to find John a new lacrosse camp? It can be tough navigating all the options for classes, programs and camps. In 2018, let other moms…
Do you ladies blog for money, fun, a little of both? Right now I'm just blogging for fun, but have considered using Adwords. Any thoughts, suggestions, warnings??? Also, what kind of traffic do you need to make money?
I've been blogging since Apr 2008. Rather new to the blogging world. I started blogging for fun and later for money. Why not right, anyway it cost me nothing. I'm a Adsense member and earning a little money from the advertisement they link it to my blog. They pay me when visitors visit my blog and click on the advertisement listed in my blog.
For me, it's a little of both. I'm still learning how to improve traffic so that I can earn more. The more people visit my blog, the better chances they will click on the advertisment and the better I'll earn.
Tips - Content is the key to bring you traffic. You can try writing articles (there are many web site where you can post your articles with your link attached to it), visit forums, promote off-line etc etc. But content is all you need. Visitors will keep coming back to your blog if yours are interesting.
I have 3 widgets that I make money off of and I get gift cards for doing reviews, and get to keep product samples for review. I'm always looking for new ways to monetize my blog, but try to to get ahead of myself.
I write because I love to but I am also making some money from my blog. Because my blog has a specific niche (Creative Moms) I'm able to offer banner ads. I don't use adwords or any other payperclick type systems. I wanted to have more control over what ads are shown on my blog. You could try project wonderful as it was a great way to start with banner ads. Traffic is less important than having a specific market for your advertisers to reach although the more you have, the more you can charge for real estate on your blog
I have an Amazon associate link(s) but I'm not expecting to make much with it. If I earn a few gift certificates that would be wonderful. Right now it's a hobby more than anything. I am thinking of approaching a store or two about advertising but I feel my blog isn't necessarily ready for that, and I'm not ready for that, but maybe down the road....
Very little. I strictly use AdSense for now...I've tried other ad systems but nothing ever earned anything. Most of my "earnings" come from doing product reviews...I get to keep a product or earn a gift certificate.
