Never read make money online blogs or you will die, of annoyance.
Oh, I despair I really do.
Not so long ago I had decided to pretty much put this site on hold for a good amount of time as it was seriously eating in to my own work time. I am online to make money and for that reason only. Mainly partly because I need to feel a little bit fulfilled by actually writing content that is worthwhile and to have a break from the boring day to day work I decided to start this blog.
Maybe I just had withdrawal symptoms, maybe I am looking for an excuse to write here again, or maybe I am
JUST SO BLOODY ANNOYED AT THE CRAP THAT NEARLY ALL MAKE MONEY ONLINE BLOGS SPEW FORTH.
Not sure which really 😉
The other evening in a slightly vino induced stupor I spent a good few hours (but what seemed like a lifetime), browsing through a horde of make money online blogs.
Oh, the shame for the industry as a whole.
I could not believe it. I do not really read any such sites any more, apart from a very few. Some are listed in the sidebar. And if you have come here looking for Make money Online Blogs, then they are about all that you need to concern yourself with. You would be much better reading them, or none at all, than the dross that most people pour out of their ill formed mouths.
While I was browsing I could not believe how awful some sites were. Not in a design way, they have me beaten hands down for that. But man, all those pop ups for lists, all those amazing free reports. All those “only 3.7394492423829 spots remaining” etc etc.
It makes me feel sad.
People reading those sites are going to be left in a total quandary about how to make money blogging. Nearly all sites aimed at telling you how to make money blogging are all about how to get more subscribers, how to interact with readers. How to get more comments on a blog, 7 reasons why you need to get social, 98.3434343 ways to get more Twitter followers, and on it goes.
People who follow these sites will find themselves getting nowhere.
The reality is that there is no money to be made in going about blogging in this way. This site is a total exception to the way I make money blogging. It has comments, even a subscriber or two, and I appreciate it. But none of that is needed to make money from a blog, and is probably the last thing you should concern yourself with.
The way to make money with a blog using wordpress is to forget about subscribers, see how many I have now 😉 , now there is a tip to use peer pressure to get more subscribers, and comments and all the stuff that you may have been told is the way to riches. Apart from a very few select people there is no way you are going to make a living blogging in that way.
Set up a wordpress site about socks and you will make more money.
Simply writing keyword rich post titles for the terms that you want to attract visitors for will make you more money than trying to get millions of Twitter fans and getting other bloggers to link to you.
But this post is about other Make money on the Internet blogs. And I really can’t believe how bad nearly all of them are. What is with this obsession with ebooks and secret formulae that promises the world. None of it works. If it did then the people touting it would not even bother making it in to an ebook would they?
And if they did it would be free like my Amazon Guide.
Maybe they would try to make some money on commissions like I do with my Tools To Succeed page. I am honest about it in that I do use them and everyone knows I get a commission if there is a sale. But all this sneaky shit is a real downer.
I have never really looked at many other MMO blogs as when I found Grizz Grizzly I had all that I needed to know. Sure I read Problogger at the beginning and a few other things but the state of this niche is nothing short of appalling. I really do wish that I could be bothered to actually get more than a handful of links to this site so I could compete but it simply won’t happen. I would be kidding myself if I ever said otherwise. Too competitive and way to dirty for me. I will just plod along and hope more than 2 people read this.
But do you know what the biggest disappointment was when I looked through tons of make money online blogs? I learned nothing. I couldn’t believe it. Filler, filler and more filler.
Here I do hope that I have at least helped a few people out. I know I ramble, I know I drink too much and often write with a vino in hand of an evening. I know that I do daft stuff that is pointless but I also know that if you read the comments on this site for all the articles written there is a lot to be learned from other people, and dare I say it, me too.
But so many of the other blogs I had the misfortune to visit were so full of nonsense and stupid advice that I wanted to
BLEED FROM MY EYES
Anyway, just don’t get suckered in to buying books and tools that won’t work. You only need to spend money on hosting and a domain to make a lot of money. Tools will speed up the process to some degree but there is no magic. I would use Postrunner for a month and spend a $ if I had no money and blast the hell out of it.
If I really wanted to make money online though I would spend an hour a day writing content and another seven getting backlinks to it.
In the words of my good lady:
“All the rest is just filler”
