When I finally decided to “monetize” my blog, I had all sorts of ideas about what that meant. I had this whole, big plan I was going to follow. When I think back on it now, I didn’t know what I was doing.
THE PLAN INCLUDED:
- Increasing my traffic (takes a super long time and kinda boring - I’d rather be creating stuff)
- Waiting until I had enough traffic to apply to ad networks, and hope that they’d accept me (ugh, I hate waiting to be chosen. LAME).
- Sign up for affiliate programs and hope that someone clicked my link (figure out how to promote other people’s stuff without sounding totally lame and feeling gross).
- Little by little, over the course of a year or more, hope to make a few hundred and then a few thousand dollars a month.
UGH! WHAT WAS I THINKING?
Jeez, I was not thinking with my brain and I was about to just suck it up and do all that crap.
There is a better way (and holy crap am I glad I figured it out). Let me show you.
