Making Money Blogging is Hard.

A couple of months ago I decide that I needed another source of income. I had heard about blogs making money so I decided to check it out. The first thing I did was to enable Adsense on my blog. So how do I get paid I asked. Well not very fast. I think, though I am not sure that I get paid in two ways. The first is pay for clicks. Adsense looks at your blog, picks ads that suit your site and pays you when someone clicks on an ad, maybe. Sometimes, you must not only click onto the ad, but go into the advertisers site before Adsense pays you.


The second way I think I get paid is by page impressions. This means that when someone reads one of my post, they see the ads and I get credit for that. The problem is that I need thousands of page impressions to get paid any money. And then it is very little money. Finally, in order to actually get paid, your balance must reach $100.00. At the rate that I am going, around Thanksgiving I will get my first check.

So now I am investigating the pay for post sites. Or pay for review sites. These folks allege that if you sign up with them, you will be ask to review things and then they will pay you. I'll let you know how it goes.
