    Very nice report, overall, could you share with us how many websites/blogs you are maintaining to reach these monthly earnings.

      It’s just two Lily, this one and my sewing site. I also have a separate site for the Blogger to WordPress transfers, but that one doesn’t earn any money and no views etc are included in these numbers.

    Way to go Deby…you are awesome in what you achieve, and getting a Virtual assistant…WOW

    I just wish I was more computer /blog technology literate…I love the writing and photos but some of the other stuff is hard. I Need to watermark my photos plus the ones on the blog already and get my head round adding links…sigh

    Well, I think you’re doing pretty fine here. Keep the trend going and wish you the best in the future. Do not hesitate to invest in other stuffs so there can be more streams of income. Can’t wait for the day I will get to this as well.

    Hey,

    There has to be a WordPress plugin that you can install and block the IP of the person who is clicking on your ads.

    You should definitely do some research.

      Yes I have that plugin Andy, but its very unsophisticated and only works in very limited circumstances. The attack is not being blocked by this plugin, but I don’t want to give too many details here except to say I have someone working on it and tracking the culprit.

    I was thinking about what you were saying about Adsense- and having freshly having my computer invaded by hackers, I wonder if this repeated clicking is an attempt by someone to falsely increase your revenues on there and then take them.. just me thinking in a paranoid fashion.. maybe time to change your account up and password? I dunno…

      Hi Jeff, I’m keeping this part a bit of a secret, don’t want to give away all my best ideas! But there are several companies I use, across quite a range of products. I find a way to incorporate them into my posts where possible.

    Ok – am wanting to earn money but am disabled and at home. I have lots of time but spend a great deal of it worrying about finances. I’m educated. I have a Master’s in Social Work. I don’t have a ton of knowledge about computers but can study and read directions and can get help from husband.
    My question is remarkably naive and I’m embarrassed to ask but how in the world do you get started? Is there a site that helps people just begin? Maybe that could be a project for someone to set up and maybe that would make a business. I would be grateful if you could share names of books or sites that might help me take steps. Or maybe tell me you got started?
    And the social worker in me wants to tell you that I’m sure Spring will be a turn around for you. You are so smart and savvy that I’m certain your income will increase. Honestly, as a newbie, I’d be grateful to make $100 a month!! My own self esteem and sense of worth has suffered much from not being able to work like I used to.
    Thanks for any direction – that is if you have a moment to spend on my dilemma. I understand you must be busy all the time. Just thought I might try and find out what to study, look at, read, etc.
    God’s Blessings! Sincerely, miannie

      Hi Lora. In terms of how to get started, very much similar to another comment I answered here. Basically -> 1 – have a passion. 2 – read about niche blogging and decide on a niche and target audience. 3 – set up your site with a strong domain name. (I can set one up for you for free, just ask me.) 4 – write awesome content that people want to read and share or come back to. 5 – publicise that content to relevant readers in other places. 6 – collect email addresses for a mailing list. Repeat steps 4 to 6…

      So you need to know what you want to write about and know that there are a good number of people out there who would want to visit you at least once a week to read about it. You need ideally to pick a single topic, although I know there are other successful sites that include several topics, but get started with just one. Then start writing. You learn as you go along and get better and better. You can only really learn by doing so you just need to make a plan and then start and see how it develops from there. Let me know if I can help you set up a site to get started.

    Hi Deby,
    I just signed up for your newsletters. I am very interested in following your blog and to interact with you. My hopes, like so many, is to have a website that earns me money. My site went live about a month ago and as of now, it is not doing well. When I first posted it, I thought I had a great idea but now, I am not sure. I am thinking my problem could be not advertising, which I do plan to do with facebook very soon. I can see your very busy, but if you could take a quick look at my site and just give me your opinion whether or not I am on the right track, I would really be thankful. Thank you so much Nancy

      HI Nancy. I’ve had a look at the site and I’m not sure about the topic. Discussion on the Pros and Cons of Internet Shopping. It might be something you could write a few articles on, but how would you sustain the content, refreshing and renewing it, posting new articles regularly? I can only see that you have the one page and the one article. Is there anything else? It’s not clear because I don’t see any other menus or pages. How do you plan to take it forward? Will you be personally reviewing popular online stores and they ordering process, customer service etc? What do you plan to write about that regular readers would want to come back each week? You say it went live about a month ago, but have you just posted the one introduction so far? You could certainly advertise but you have to have some content for people to read, otherwise you will be paying to send them to the site and there isn’t anything for them to look at yet, so they’ll leave immediately and there is no reason for them to follow you. Will you have an email list or newsletter? I didn’t see anywhere to sign up. Also the formatting of your post is a bit off because the adverts at the bottom are covering the text within the post itself. And I don’t see links to any social media for you or way to contact you. All the social media buttons are sharing buttons for my own pages, but none for yours. So far, I think you have too little content, and too many essential elements missing from the site in order to launch and advertise it just yet. You need to develop your idea more about the content, add more interesting content and add in some of those missing elements. Then the site will be ready to introduce to new readers.
      I wish you luck with it. There’s a lot of hard work ahead of you in order to turn it into a success.
