Recently one of my sites was mentioned in a yahoo article and traffic skyrocketed for a few hours. I’m completely ecstatic but also overwhelmed at the emails, comments and questions I’ve been receiving.
One of the hot topics in my inbox is how how/if I make money online. I’ve discussed this a few times here on the blog and thought it would be a good idea to do a wrap up that may give you some insights…

- 4 Ways to Make Money with Your Blog Besides Google Adsense
- “How much do you get paid for these advertising ads?”
- The Business of Blogging: A Free E-Book
One thing I want to reinforce is that blogging is a job. I happen to find it a very FUN job and I love what I do, but it’s still a job. I write, design, program, edit video, prep photos, manage multiple projects, maintain relationships with companies, negotiate ad rates, market on social media sites, I can continue but this is getting boring. Point is.. I work. I’m just lucky enough and work hard enough to do it for myself and at home.
