I read an article in one of the traffic exchange site asking this same question, the only difference is our answer. She said a "no" and mine is a "yes" and the proof just arrived this day, April 4, 2008, my Google Adsense PIN.
I don't blame the author of the blog that I was mentioning because she said that she loves writing and that is why she does it. But there was a remark from her that "it doesn't pay my light bills" (I believe she's referring to her electricity bill). Now that should be a reason to start monetizing her blog, to pay her electricity bills. Besides she have a good site and have a decent writing basing from what I've read in her article.
After more than two months of blogging, I am starting to see the results of the work I've done. I started blogging because of a random email that was sent to me from a certain member of a social network I joined, the Friendster. She was telling me about making money within the social network and showed me a link of the proof. Of course it directed me to her blog site and saw the clip I posted here, the "Mel & Joey" earn from your blog segment and realized that we could really earn from blogs. It has been very difficult experience for me because I didn't knew adsense. I just saw it on one of the sponsored links on that site and researched about it, registered using my friendster account, yes my friendster account, you can use that if you don't have a website yet (you would be needing it if you would register), it worked for me. Still the hard part of it is that no one thought me how to do it, the only one I learned with a help of an online friend(Mommy Ruby) is viral linking. I have to study everything on my own so I told myself, why not make this blog a tool to teach everybody who wants to earn online. That I am doing and will do for the rest of my blogging days.
Sometimes its hard to reply on people's queries because of the new things that I learn online. I use to focus on each thing that I learn and sometimes I can't give time to those I am teaching. It is very hard to divide time when you are just starting to learn more and more. To those I'm mentoring, be patient with me, I'll be back on you, thats for sure. I've had my triumph and failures on the web, failures that posts as challenge to me. Challenges that makes you improve your work and give more dedication, correct those mistakes and innovate. There are still much to talk about but I am cutting this off now. Watch out for the posts that I will be making, tips from Google Adsense, and other ways to earn online. Been discovering quite a few of them. Watch out for the new site that I would be making. Will correct my past mistakes on that site. My journey on the web has been a trial and error but still is rewarding.
I am happy that there are no holds on my Google Adsense account. I am adhering Google Adsense to all the Filipinos and all bloggers of the world because it is free. Everything in this life that is free is good. I believe that, do you? So let's Adsense our way to richess. I'll see you there.
