How To Monetize Your Blog

Monetize. Yes - or - No?

THIS BLOGGER made almost $2000 last month! THIS BLOGGER made MORE!

MONETIZE your blog!

There's a lot that's been written about monetizing blogs - I continually warn people against supporting the self-proclaimed "Blogging Gurus" - I understand some bloggers enjoy making money online and telling the whole wide world about it, via publishing articles detailing their blog earnings, etc. {eXample]

Not that there's anything at all wrong with that!

Different approaches ::: I found it interesting to compare/contrast the abovementioned blogs against Justin's blog. Check them out, compare, and draw your own conclusions.

Do YOU have a link for a blog that posts monthly income reports? If so, please leave it in my comments section! THANK-YOU!

Have a look at some of my stats!

Remember: it's not unusual to find a PR2 blogger making more than $900 a month while a PR4 Blogger may be making around $25. There are so many different factors that come into play!

Bookmark this post and study the links I have provided to those money-making blogs - visit them often - try to figure out why they are doing so well! Remember, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!"

Below have a look at my sitemeter stats (figures received on November 2, 2011):::

Be advised that there are DANGERS!

The following is an excerpt from a Famous Bloggers article by Andy Williams:

"In his excellent article entitled “Google Kicked Me So Hard I Cried A Little Bit“, Dave B. Ledoux graphically describes what it was like to wake up one morning only to find that he’d wasted three years of his life. Virtually overnight, Google had kicked out 570 of his sites, and took with them, a substantial part of his income."

Don't put all your blogging eggs in one basket! Diversify!

Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
