Plenty of people want to make money with blogs. Crystal Stemberger is someone who actually has. In the past year she has earned $6,000 to $23,000 per month with a handful of blogs plus work as a consultant, mentor and ad-sales manager.
Yep, she’s busy – but somehow she found time to write an e-book. Crystal recently released “How I Make Money Blogging: The Beginner’s Guide to Building a Money-Making Blog.”
If you’re at all interested in electronic earnings, this is a work you should read – and here’s your chance to win a copy or, failing that, to get $10 off the purchase price.
The author has donated a copy of “HIMMB” as this week’s prize. The drawing will take place earlier than usual, on Sunday evening (more on that in a minute).
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.
I’m doing the drawing a day early, at 6 p.m. Sunday. If I don’t hear back from the winner by 10 a.m. Monday, I’ll draw another name.
The reason for the early pull: If you’re intrigued by the book and aren’t lucky enough to win it, you’ll still have a day and a half to take advantage of the current price break. Normally the book costs $27 but is on sale for $17 through next Tuesday, July 31.
If you do decide to buy I hope it will be from the “HIMMB” widget here on my site, which is over on the right along with a bunch of other small ads — Ally Bank, Mr. Rebates et al. I will receive a commission on sales made from that widget.
And if you decide later on you want to buy it? Don’t curse the cost of indecision — e-mail me for a $10-off coupon. The discount is good at least through the month of August, possibly longer.
Incidentally, Crystal offers a 100% money-back guarantee if the book doesn’t do it for you. I have a feeling that nobody will take her up on that.
