I have heard time and again from many people over the last 7+ months that ‘you can make so much $$$ if you just put AdSense on your blog’. Not this blog, not my main blog, but my very first venture into hardcore blogging. I use hardcore loosely, mind you.
I recently broke the milestone of 9,000 views yesterday – which I’m proud of. But it doesn’t give me enough of a reason to move it off of the free WP platform and onto its own domain where I can plug in AdSense wherever I please. I just don’t think that’s enough traffic. When I can get over a few hundred views a day, maybe I’ll consider it. But till then, I’ll be that blogger who blogs for the simple pleasure of blogging – not a few extra cents so I can … do whatever it is people do with a couple of extra cents.
Just like Andy Beal says…
While very few can quit their day job and live off the money they make from blogging, many avid bloggers are finding their passion might just provide something more than just satisfaction in having their voice heard.
