It is hard to make money with a blog. I'm basically done with affiliate marketing that pays pennies. I do much better when selling my ad space myself.
I actually just posted on my blog yesterday the ways I monetize and how much I have made. Check it out when you get a chance: http://simplystacie.net/different-ways-to-monetize-your-blog/
Hi, Nicki! I have to say I make some money from my blogs, but it's writing posts for Blogsvertise. I know others sell advertising, but I've not had ANY luck with that. I'd be interested in this information, too!!
