I was not a blogger at all, but now I am a blogger. Or should I say, I am trying be like one. Not three months ago, I started blogging. Though this is not my first time to blog, this is really the time that I started blogging seriously. At first, I just write irrelevant stuffs that makes no sense. It was kinda personal sharing.
I'm not saying that I blog more than as hobby because in fact it's not. I blog to have a venue expressing my humble opinions on my personal take on subjects as diverse as "Filipino Clam Mentality" (I'm allergic on crabs) and "Why makahiya has a good reflex?".
When I started blogging, I also immediately monetize my blog. Its not the money that motivates me to put ads. Monetizing a new blog means not having to bother with redesigning it later to accommodate the banner ads and other forms of moneymaking strategies that may affect the overall look and feel of my blog when traffic started pouring in. Though it is a risky move, it can pay off later on as you are introducing your blog to the world already monetized. This way, readers will not be surprised or upset that you have added some forms of advertising to your blog later on down the road.
So I signed up on Nuffnang for my ads and to see the effect and feel on my template and I kinda like it. Imagine my surprise when I started getting campaign ads after only a month of blogging.
In this world, we all need money. Who says he doesn't? I believe that if you monetize your blog, you will not only make money from it but you take it as your business too.
That's all I can about monetizing a blog. I blog because I love it and this way I have a voice on this deafening world of opinions, and I monetize my blog because I need it.
So go ahead mate, monetize your blog and make your life a little bit easier.
