Interested in not just starting but also “monetizing” (ugh — hideous neologism!) your own site? You need this week’s giveaway.
It’s a copy of “How I Make Money Blogging: The Beginner’s Guide to Building a Money-Making Blog,” an e-book by Crystal Stemberger. The author, who owns or co-owns eight sites, offers how-to advice on everything from choosing the right title to how much you should charge for ads.
Important safety tip: Not everyone makes much (or any) cash from blogging. Stemberger herself cautions readers, “Don’t be in this for the money.” But if you have something to say and would like a shot at earning even a little extra on the side, knowing what to do — and what not to do — will certainly increase your odds. “How I Make Money Blogging” will be a big help to you.
And if you aren’t this week’s winner but still want the book? Please consider ordering it from the HIMMB widget on my daughter’s website, I Pick Up Pennies. (Look over on the right, over the “Recent past” section.) Use the coupon code “thankyou10″ to get $10 off the sticker price.
