Thirty cents. Better than nothing. I’m literally using the money earned by another blog to pay for the existence of this blog. It’s sad that I spend more effort in this blog but I don’t get the visitors.
Some notes on ad revenue
Thoughtful posts don’t gain you visitors.
To get visitors, you need, I repeat, you need to blog silly things.
No one wants to know your opinion unless you’re a celebrity and have some say in things.
If part of your reason of blogging is to earn some pennies, never start a personal blog.
Start a link blog or something. Put up music for people to download (and violate from ahem ahem stuff), put lots of pictures that are either funny or cute. (Cute pictures like dogs, cats and rabbits are a winner.)
Don’t bother posting those male-female analysis, boy-girl relationship that could have been passed off as dissertation from some academic institution.
Blog with what’s trendy. Bill Gates retire? Blog about it, link it to another blog. iPhone released? Post pictures, and write a bunch of useless iPhone specifications.
Just don’t model your income generator after this blog.
At the end of 4 months, you will just earn thirty cents. That’s just my two cents. Okay, now I’m left with 28 cents, great.
