I just thought I would throw that out there.
When I started blogging a couple of years ago, I didn't realize that people were making money off of blogging. To me, it is just an updated way to keep a diary. A very public diary. After reading some other blogs and learning more about it, I realized that some people make decent money from blogging. One Mom wrote on her own blog that "Blogging is kind of like a supplemental income, like Tupperware parties were back in the day." I would have a hard time supplementing my income with what I have made so far blogging.
I have recently learned that you get money from the little ads that are on the sides of your posts and sometimes under them.
Those over there. ------------------------------------------>
When someone clicks on those ads, the company pays the blogger. It's kind of like a "refer a friend" program. Just for kicks, today I checked my payment account section thingy (obviously, not the correct terminology). I learned that my account is sitting there with money in it. Just waiting for me to get it. Do you know how much money I have made so far? Buckle up for this! 83 cents. It comes from someone who clicked one of the ads. If I knew who clicked it, I would send a thank you card. When I figure out how to withdraw the money, I can go buy myself a candy bar.
Let's be clear on something else. I am also not getting famous from writing a blog. I look at other blogs that have thousands of "followers" and "subscribers". At the present time, I have one follower. And it is me. I follow myself. I admit it. If you look down at the bottom, right side of my blog, you can see for yourself.
I know you are jealous. You will probably start your own blog now.
