"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'm not either...I blog for fun, not to make money, and honestly, I don't want my blog cluttered with ads. I just want to enjoy blogging."

"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."

"Great question! 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 don't monetize. I've been blogging for almost a year and use Blogger. I just never got in the mode to try it, I barely even knew what it meant for the longest time! I have no issues with anyone who does use it, I'm just in it for…"

"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…"

Tracy Iglesias replied to RainyDay's discussion 'Anyone NOT monetizing their blog?'
"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…"

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
