Right now, the only monetization avenues that my blog network is using is Adsense and a few affiliate links from some freelancing websites. See Disclosure Policy
As a blogger, the income that I'm getting from these are honestly not that substantial. I was wondering whether there are other avenues for exploration that would not make my blog appear like a roving billboard.
For this, I'm avidly following the developments in DragonBlogger.com, a blog owned by Justin Germino because he is regularly experimenting on various monetization programs and models. Aside from that, Justin regularly posts his blogging income and expenses to apprise readers on which revenue generation model works best for him. See DragonBlogger.com June 2011 Income.
So far, these are the programs that he has been using:
- Social Spark
- Link worth
- Direct Paid or Post Link
- Wordpress Consulting
- Formidable Pro Affiliate
- Amazon Affiliate Program
- Affiliate Lights
- Sponsored Tweets
- Associated Content
While his progress is admirable, and though sometimes I am tempted to tread on the same path, overadvertising on a blog is something that I am avoiding - For Now

Of the monetization mediums mentioned above, I've only been able to use Social Spark (sparingly might I add), Amazon Affiliates and of course, Adsense.
Of the others I haven't tried yet, I am somewhat curious about the buysellads system.
As you may have noticed. I've been messing around with the theme of this blog for quite some time now. Apparently, there's just no theme that satisfies me. I've also broken some codes here and there so please don't hesitate to tell me if you have the time.
