Why I have this Blog?
I was inspired by Jomar Hilario blog which features tons of useful information on internet marketing, blogging, Google Adsense, tips and information on generating to blogs and a lot more. Hence the birth of personal blog ofwsijuan.blogspot.com in February.
At first I was at a loss as to what would be the best posts and stories I had to write to generate a lot of traffic and stir interest to my readers. I also experimented with a lot of features and gadgets with Blogger, ad placement and also submitting my blog to search engines. Visiting other blog and leaving comments helps generate traffic as well. Recently my blog was first followed by a blogger (http://myofwdiaries.blogspot.com) from Saudi Arabia. Thanks bro!
Creating a personal blog for me is like having a facebook or friendster account twice. Because you don't only upload photo waiting at the mercy of your friends to post a comment or not . Its like having a personal interaction with a friend where conversation is not confined to a one liner status message. And chances are you may earn from your blog. Let me tell you how.
This week I was surprised to receive a letter from Google Adsense. Google Adsense by the way is a multi billion industry and ad placement application of Google, where website owners or in my case blog owner can enroll to enable text or image ads on the website. When the ads are clicked you get to share revenue with Google.
The letter contains my 6-digit PIN number which will validate my Google Adsense account. I must admit earning from Google Adsense takes a lot of patience and hardwork. But some people are claiming to be earning thousands of dollars from Adsense. Adsense will pay me when I hit $ 100.00 or 70 euro. I don't know when I will reach that threshold amount. But for the meantime I just keep on blogging and enjoying! I even promised my wife that when I get my first pay check from Adsense I will treat her to a lovely dinner in Chilis Dubai.
So does Google Adsense really pay? Thats for me to find out.
