There’s a lot of bloggers out there who choose not to make money blogging and I know why, they see blogging as a hobby or they don’t write for the money; there’s multiple reasons why and I give much respect to those who chose not to get paid. On the other hand, there’s the bloggers out there who think, maybe I can make money from blogging, maybe this might be the answer to doing something I truly love and make a living from it. Why not? For some, they don’t want to bombard their readers with ads and I understand, in today’s world, everywhere you go on the internet, there’s some kind of pop up ad or something that distracts you from your main goal; that can get annoying.
However, there are sites out there that are smooth about advertising. One site being Info links. If you’ve been too my page a few times, or even if you’re reading this, you’ll notice that there’s certain words, that are highlighted in green with two lines under them. For those who don’t know, those aren’t key words to my story or my write, those are in text advertisements. When one scrolls over them or clicks on them, an ad pops up. If it appeals to you while you’re reading, than one can click on it and it’ll take you to their site; if you’re not interested one can simply move their mouse away from the link and the ad will disappear. I figured that’s not that bad. It’s better than some sites I visited, before the page even loads I’m being bombarded with ads left and right and I’m totally turned off by the page; usually I find myself hitting the back button to escape this “ad in the box” chaos.
I want people to read what I have to say and I feel bombarding them with advertisements is not the way to go. However I don’t mind the ads but I want people to see the ads at their own consent. I have 60 post and if you look at every one of them, there all about things I like to write about, things that either inspire me, things that seem interesting to me, life, poetry, art, religion, theory, any and everything, that’s why the blog title is “No Title”. There is no specific niche for this blog. I don’t do this for the money, the most I’ve made is $2.35 and I couldn’t even collect that because the first time I had info links, they kicked me out before I could reach the pay-out limit. I digress. My point: we all want to do something we love in life and if money is an option, why not get paid for doing something you love? There’s nothing wrong with getting paid for doing something you love. However, if you’re only purpose is for the money, you might want to reconsider what you’re doing. When you do it for the money, one’s post may not show fervency; if anything, there’s going to be some half ass writes and it may lack originality. So go ahead, get paid for writing, just remember, make sure it’s original and make sure it’s not about the $.
