My man sometimes tells me I read too much… there may be some truth to that statement!
I spent last weekend reading about how to make money blogging. If you’re looking for a great story, there are lots of them out there! Not sure how many are true but they read like a “happily ever after” story.
Please bear in mind, that I am a 100% self-taught blogger. EVERYthing I have done, I have learned by trial and error… mostly error, I’m afraid. So, with some fear and trepidation I added Google adsense and Amazon associates to my blog to see if I can generate a little extra spending money.
Honestly, I think the only person who noticed my ads was my cousin… at least, I hope she was the only one who noticed because today I saw the Amazon ad…
Ummm.. I don’t think so. Not in my neck of the blogging woods does Lady Gaga need to appear.
So, for 5 days I ran ads on my blog. After Gaga appeared, the ads disappeared.
…and in those 5 days, I made a whoppin’ 45 cents. Definitely not a “happily ever after” story!
