Okay, it’s not exactly what you think. I love tattoos but how would you feel if I offered $50 for you to have a tattoo of my face on your arm. Any takers? This is what advertising on your blog is about.
Someone emailed me this
I’m at that point where I haven’t blogged for 2 months (got married, moved to the UK), and I can’t get myself to write the first post…do you have any prescription for that dr kagan?
I’m no doctor, luckily my brother is:) Anyways, what do you do when you are tired of blogging? I put ads on okdork a few months ago. And now I’m making a whopping $1 a day or so. That is about 5 burritos a month.
Personally, it won’t change my content but it’s a nice reward outside of meeting new people that I get. Also, it encourages me to post more often and somewhat try to promote my blog more. I still don’t:) The unfortunate thing is I don’t get to control what ads appear on my blog. For example, this image on Andrew Chen’s blog supporting John McCain. I am not sure he supports him but a new visitor might get that impression. Ads are a good thing to motivate me but do have this downside.
What do you do when you are tired / unmotivated to blog? (ads, outsource, stop blogging, etc..)
