We also want readers, so we use sites like MyBlogLog, BlogCatalog, Linkreferal and also many others.
Does this all help?
Well, my readership has increased but I am still making little monies. For Google and a lot of the others it is based on Pageviews. Pageviews is how many pages are clicked in your blog where ads are placed. Other income is based on how many ads were clicked on, on your site.
Then some are commissions from products sold where the reader went and found the product they bought from your site.
Now I am not a Blogging Genius, actually with this subject I am a Blogging Novice.
I am like most of you; I go to a blog and read the articles. Sometimes I will click to see the comments, or if new at that site, go to older posts to read more of the writer’s stories.
I do not go on a clicking frenzy to click on everything I see. But, this is how you make more money. Someday if I can learn how, I will set my home page where it only shows part of my article and you need to click to go to the full story.
I guess what I am saying is, I am not going to get rich, or even make enough to buy groceries blogging; I will just continue to write about my life, observations and experiences.
I hope you will continue to visit and enjoy my stories. I just wrote this after being discouraged by looking at my revenue, or lack of it.
