It’s about time I resumed my writings on how to make money with your blog.
Well, now that this blog has passed it’s three months birthday, I could start to submit it to some of the paid review sites, like PayPerPost and ReviewMe and start to accept some paid reviews. But I’m going to be a little more patient right now and wait a little longer to make money this way.
Well, for one writing paid reviews can deter some readers from your blog, because they came in the first place to learn something about how to make money. Ok, by getting creative you could argue that by posting some paid reviews, you’d sort of be demonstrating by example how to write paid reviews.
Not so daft, really.
But the main reason I’m stalling is because there’s a chance that the page rank of this blog might get a leg-up, despite the blog’s young age. That’s because I’ve been busy promoting it and obtaining back-links naturally by commenting in other blogs, writing in forums and submitting the odd article or two to high profile article directories.
I’ll know whether this blog has attracted some PR love soon enough, so I’ll wait until then before I submit it to the paid review sites. That way, when I do submit it, I’ll be going in with a page rank to impress them, which will mean a better chance of more reviews to write and better paid ones at that.
It also gives me a chance to increase the level of good, interesting and informative content here before I start pock-marking it with advertising blurb which, unless you’re interested in that sort of thing, will lower the tone of the place a little. But only a little – as I won’t be taking on every paid review that moves – only the ones that are highly relevant to this blog’s main theme.
So you could say that this post on how to make money, is more about how to NOT make money, at least in the short term. But in the long term, which is what I’m aiming for as a steady and renewable income source, this blog will make money and in spades.
My belief is it will come up trumps for my patience and forethought in not going at it like a bull in a china shop. And that’s how to really make money!
