Earning online is not impossible

When I first started my online venture, I did get a lot of flak offline and online. Many people I met were actually skeptical that I would get involved into something which is not really recognised as a (traditional) “job”. Several moronic bloggers (whom I shall not name here) even blatantly chastised me publicly by saying that this is an euphemism for being “jobless”. Of course, what they do not know is that I was not “forced” into starting up my ventures online due to unemployment or anything of the sort. I chose to do what I did because I really wanted to do it. I certainly cannot imagine myself sitting at a desk from 9 AM to 4 PM like an office drone (think Hiro Nakamura of Heroes fame) or take orders from someone who looks down on you just because she thinks you build websites as a “hobby”.

Well, I have proved all the skeptics wrong and I am still doing my online business today, since having started it in mid-2006. I even bought Project Petaling Street in early 2009 with the money I earned from my internet ventures and am currently consolidating it with other services such as my free URL shortener. Here is the latest screenshot of my earnings from PayPal for February 2010, thanks to my online ventures (its not limited to blogging only).

Advantages of affiliate marketing and how you can benefit

Many people exertion to the Pay-Per-Click (PPC) technique, just to detect that whenever they don’t use this technique properly, and don’t convince, they’re misplacing profit every day. For instance, whenever you’re commercializing an electronic product, such as an eBook, or program download, and your commission on the sale of an exclusive item is $30 but your unable PPC campaign burns through more than $30 in clicks per day, you’re not doing too well. At this charge per unit, in 3 days you’ll be belt down $90 and have to betray three points to just break-even, which turns hopeless due to the cycle that has set out.

Down with the flu

Today I have been doing nothing but sneezing every few minutes or so and I am suffering from a running nose. Pretty sure that I have the flu, or at least am about to get the flu. The Treatment for Symptoms is fortunately very easy as this is merely the signs for a full-blown flu. So the whole day today, I did nothing but drank a lot of fluids and it seems to be working in helping my body fight the flu.

You may think that just because I have the flu, this means I have to take the day off. Well, the answer is no, I don’t. All I have to do is to take things easy and rest a lot. But I still have to face the laptop in order to finish some blogging job offers that I have delayed due to other commitments. In fact, I don’t mind doing this at all as working as a full-time blogger is really a liberating experience. Its certainly something that everyone should consider doing!

Blogging For Money rejuvenated

Last year I spoke about a new theme for Blogging For Money. Well, the theme did went live a few days later but as I was busy with other projects, I could not properly test it. Heck, I didn’t have the time to even announce the emergence of this new theme (as I am doing right now)!

So far, everything seems to run smoothly and I am very happy with this new custom theme for one of my oldest blogs focusing on the making money niche. Yes, I have certainly neglected to update this blog for some time and I certainly cannot fault no one else for this apart from myself. I certainly have to shoulder the blame for not maintaining the blog as I should, since I am focusing more on my other niche blogs rather than this one.

Why Google Adsense is essential for your blogs

These days I have been neglecting my focus on optimising my Google Adsense position in my blogs, but I intend to rectify that soon as I come to the realisation that Adsense is essential for websites, especially those which contain a lot of content. The concept behind Adsense is relatively simple, as it involves inserting a Javascript code into a certain website or blog. Each time the page is accessed and shows a related link to a san francisco probate lawyer for example, the Javascript will pull advertisements from the Google Adsense program. The search engine is the one handling all the tracking and payments, providing an easy way for webmasters to display content-sensitive and targeted ads without having the hassle to solicit advertisers, collect funds, monitor the clicks and statistics which could be a time-consuming task in itself. It seems that there is never a shortage of advertisers in the program from which the search engine pulls the Google Adsense ads. Also webmasters are less concerned by the lack of information search engines are providing and are more focused in making cash from these search engines.

Back again with new hosting

Blogging For Money is back up again after an unexpected server outage disrupted our server and caused a hard disk corruption which caused all data (including this blog) to be lost. So I did the rather hard and thankless task of reinstalling WordPress and restoring the previous database to the blog. Fortunately there is still a latest copy of this blog lying around, and although posts that were made before the server outage is now irrecoverable they were rather too unimportant to worry about. I have even decided to use a magazine-styled theme, Forte from Moses Francis.
