"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."

"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…"

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…"

"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…"

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

Ellen C replied to RainyDay's discussion 'Anyone NOT monetizing their blog?'
"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…"

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.
