Monetizing a Blog

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.

  3. It is good to earn money that way. AdSense is not popular these days, long reasons as mentioned in other blogs. When someone is jealous of you, he can sabotage by clicking your ads many times a day. There goes our rice bowl for being victims.

  4. I just recently joined the bloggers community and I'm a newbie too. But honestly, I don't earn in return. I mean ROI wise? I got negative.

    I am yet to publish an article on how diversityhuman.com is doing with the last 2 quarters but I want to share some facts ahead of time.

    My monthly expenses would be somewhere 6K+ and my ad revenue per month is just 300+. The margin is so huge, that is about 5K+ deficit.

    But I am not here to monetize my blog sites. It never came into my mind. If blessings would flow I would be thankful if nothing then I just have to accept it, just like what I have now.

    Goodluck to you sir! :)

  6. @DiversityHuman, yeah, me too. Money is not the motivation for my blogging. It only comes next as to the reason why I maintain a blog.

  8. @Rezki, just blog and monetized at the same time, just don't mind if you ain't earning. Just do what you love the most then for all you know, you were earning already.
    As for me, I don't visit my "earnings" page in my nuffnang account until now.

  10. @Chai, yeah. that's what I'm trying to say. lol..... just blog and if you'll have monetary gains, then that's good. think it as a reward for a blogger to blog harder. :)

  13. @Small Kucing, same with me, I blog because I want to have a venue to say what I wanna say

  14. A lot of people ask me to do that...but I can't be bothered. Just blog for fun, make lots of friends...and keep myself mentally active. That's all.

  15. @STP, I blog for fun too, and to meet new friends, but along the way, if I'll have a chance for a monetary gain, why not?

  19. I thought na yun blogger ang pinipili para mabigyan ng ads, yun pala pwede ka magregister dun, haha!

    QQ! pano yun sinasabi ni twilight man na pwede ka i-sabotage by clicking your ads several times? di ko nagets, kala ko kasi the more na mag-click, the more kita, hahaha!

    Anyways, good luck sayo!

  20. @Joanne, sa nuffnang kelangan mo din magregister. pero hindi ka ata agad mabibigyan ng ads unless pumasa sa certain criteria ang blog mo. kelangan makakuha ka ng at least 20 unique visitor sa last 20 days para mabigyan ka ng ads.

    yung sa adsense naman, kung iisang IP address lang mag-click ng maraming beses sa google ads mo, madedetect nila as malicious clicks at un ang dahilan para i-ban ang account.

  23. If your definiteness of purpose is to make money from blogging, got to understand that the more you think about money, the more you'll not be a successful blogger. Think about 'giving' first in a sense of quality comment, feedback, etc.

    Quality bloggers like Ben Ashari, Darren Rowse do provide quality content that benefits other people.
