Would it surprise you to know that girls are twice as likely to drop out of sporting activities through their teenage years than boys? Or to realize that most young girls start engaging in organized sports up to two whole years later than boys? …
One of the most devastating things that can happen to any family is substance abuse in any form. Anything in excess is never good for anyone. That could be anything from too much food, exercise, alcohol or even shopping. Addictive behaviors can turn relationships upside down for those who…
I've been blogging for almost a year now. It was a way for me to get some creativity back after having kids, staying home. Same old same old. I started a second blog about 6 months ago as I struggled…Continue
"I've had my blog for almost 1 1/2 years and haven't monetized it. I didn't really think that was me at first. But now that I have almost 100 followers and 200+ hits a day, I figure I might as well. I don't plan to do anything…"
"I write a memoir /journal /random thought blog and I don't monetize. I recently had a post that explained why. I have enough to keep track of. I did add two charity widgets for causes I care about but that's it."
Blogging for me is about keeping my creativity alive & promoting artists. After family, work & home some days adding to my blog ( http://ArtSnark.blogspot.com ) is the only "me" time I get.
Monetizing is not a…"
"It really depends on what ads/affiliate programs you accept. I won't accept things that don't fit with my theme. I talk about self sufficiency and eco-friendly living so for example a gardening ad would appeal but something like lingerie…"
"Wow. I'm surprised so many bloggers aren't planning on monetizing. I'm not at the moment, but I might. I've had some offers from advertisers but they were ads that just wouldn't appeal to my readers. I think lots of bloggers…"
"It's funny because I started out blogging what I do because I was doing it by phone or Facebook anyway - I mainly blog on my "big" blog about deals / coupons / shopping / freebies - and I found myself calling family and friends or…"
"I LOVE this question. I've been writing a personal finance blog for about a year now, and I don't monetize. A big concern of mine was not being able to control the ads. I suspect that it would end up being a lot of…"
"I do not monetize my site as it's just a personal blog and my other one is my ministry. If I had something that would be appropriate for either site and make enough money to just do one or two things, I might try…"
"Okay, I am new to blogging, BUT I don't intend for my blog to make me money. Sure, like you said, it is a great bonus. I am thinking that sometime in the future I may start doing reviews and giveaways, but that is about it. I looked in to the…"
"My blog is a labor of love for sure, but I did join up with AdBrite and Chitika to place ads on my blog, I chose these sites instead of Google Adsense because I approve all ads myself and I can make sure that nothing that does not fit our image and…"
"I am not monetizing my blog. Bubbynme.blogspot.com was started because I needed to record my thoughts about being a mom, exchange ideas and support with other moms with similar interests. There are too many online ads as it is. I want my blog to be…"
"Well I can see both sides. I've done the SAHM thing and I've done the full time working mommy with a high power job. Right now I'm doing the working part time thing & trying to find a business I can do from home thing. I like this…"
"Nope, I don't monetize and I don't plan to. I like to write about whatever strikes my fancy at the time--often something related to parenting my two teens! Ha, ha! Also, like Krissi, I ultimately hope to build up readership for my future…"
"I've considered it a number of times...but my blog is informational (on child health and safety) and I'm hesitant to go that route... not sure how it would impact how people perceive the information I'm…"
"I've thought about monetizing too but I don't. My blog is a creative outlet for me and in a way, a portfolio -- if I find a paying job that way that would be cool. But as far as selling space or doing affiliate programs, I haven't…"
