This week’s giveaway, an e-book called “How I Make Money Blogging: The Beginner’s Guide to Building a Money-Making Blog,” can kick-start your own efforts to be rewarded for your thoughts.
Some people make a little money blogging. Some make a lot. The book’s author, Crystal Stemberger, is in the latter camp. She really works it, running a handful of sites and also acting as ad-sales goddess, mentor, consultant and freelancer. Apparently she is allergic to sleep, because she recently added yet another specialty: pet-sitting.
Not everybody wants to work 24-7. But if you want to start a blog or if you’ve got a site and want it to start paying its way, this e-book can help. A lot.
Here’s what I once wrote about it:
“Crystal covers the nuts-and-bolts info (domains, how to choose a format) as well as the more esoteric stuff like page rankings and search engine optimization plug-ins. I’m not particularly tech-savvy so this book was a great help to me. It showed me a bunch of things I should have been doing and explained them in language I could understand.”
