A website/blog can help you share your thoughts and earn some more money (as dividends) in long run. Are you with the same thoughts OR am I am just a techy head?

Myself Sharon. I'm pretty new to this community.
I do maintain a few blogs but haven't been able to monetize them yet. There are not enough clicks on ads.
Can anyone suggest?

Keep working on good content, once you are getting enough visits put different ads and test the ones that are working for you. You can use Google's A/B and multi variant testing with Google optimizer.

I started my first blog Christmas Day last year. I knew NOTHING about blogging but it was pretty easy to figure out. I started it because I was inspired by a few blogs I read by debtcc members before I even became one. That is what made me join here and realize...hey I am not the only one going through this stuff! I use it now to keep track of where I am going and where I have been in my fight against debt. I was hesitant to put it all out there on the "world wide web" but I do maintain my anonymity. It definitely helps me deal with stuff when I write it all in my blog. If someone reads it and gets inspired-it makes it all the better.

As far as making money with it-I have not made much.I hope to but as it stands right now since Christmas-I got a whole 10 bucks in my Google Adsense account. Maybe it will change once I get more readers. We will see. The way I look at it is, that is $10 more than I had before I started the blog for a few minutes of my time.

girlndebt, good work with the blog. It has some good content. All you need is some 2 topics a week, which are of high quality. The posts that are coming out of self experience and are detailed attract more traffic. It will take time to pickup. Keep blogging regularly and do ask other bloggers to add you to their blogroll.

You can also start - Topic of the week from forums across the web. Take a new topic which appears on any of the forums and discuss about it.


whiterock73, I have seen many becoming writers because of blogging. Blogging is not about perfection but about talking. Talk Talk and Talk.

Yes-Mike helped me get mine set up because I did not have a clue! He was so awesome and fast!

Thanks Vikas, I will definitely be taking your advise on my blog content/traffic. I hope I do get more traffic and can earn more. Whatever I make out of it-I have it checked that debtcc gets a portion of the proceeds. Why? Because this site is incredible with great people. I am so glad I found this place.
