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…"
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…"

"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 have no wish to monetize my blog, either. I do reviews here and there, but I don't look at that as income, just talking about them. I don't like ads all over my blog, it's distracting. Plus, if I start trying to make money off my…"
"I monetize my blog. There are costs associated with my blog like paying someone to make the layout or mailing giveaway prizes and I'd rather make a little than loose it. My goal is working at home and my blog will be one of the ways I do…"
"I agree with Rachel...AIthough I did start out thinking I could make money but it seems a lot harder than it looks.And now, I really don't want to clutter my blog with ads. (*I wouldn't mind reviewing products (not paid reviews) or getting…"
