    Your blog is already very helpful, one of the best about this topic. I’d love to know what that big promotional campaign is you wrote about here. What specific actions did you do and on what sort of sites? This could be a good article. And why don’t you try a public coaching program where you give tips about what a certain blog can do to improve quality, number of visitors and income and then post about it and the results the blog has accomplished in a month and your existing readers may apply for this. Every blog is different and reacts different to all the existing techniques, so this may be extremely useful.

    Also, one of my blogs is having problems with malware. Do you know how to detect and remove it? It started after I installed Infolinks. Maybe it’s related.

      Hi Vanessa, thanks for writing. I’m certainly considering a webinar series answering readers questions and showing live on screen some of the tips and processes I use on my own site. I know traffic is a huge question for most blogs starting out or looking to grow. I could certainly share all of my best sharing sites and what brings me the most traffic etc – great idea.
      About the malware – I’m sure its nothing to do with Infolinks. Do you mean that the blog has been infected itself, or that your pc has been infected or that the blog has been flagged as distributing malware to visitors? There is a great service offered by GoDaddy where they continually monitor your site, send you reports and if something goes wrong or gets infected you have a security expert who corrects it for you personally. I think this must be for GoDaddy hosted sites only though – but perhaps your hosting company also runs a similar scheme. Take a look at http://moms-make-money.com/godaddy, then at the top green box go to Grow With Web Tools, then scroll down to the blue boxes and look for Site Scanner.

    I’ll be dropping Media.net as soon as I reach the threshold! More empty days than paying days. Like another said, it seems they did really good at the start then just dropped off. I’ll go back to Lijit. At least it was consistent!

      Yes Media.net also has a nigh payout threshold at $100 I think. At this rate, it’s going to take me quite some time to reach my first payout…

    Excellent job! I find that the summer months are the slowest on the blog for me – people are out and about on vacation. 🙂 Visiting from Ladybug Blessings!

    I just was accepted with Share-a-Sale. From your stats, sounds like I made a good decision. Any tips on how you select the merchants to advertise on your sites?

    Deby, you’re earnings amaze me! Congrats. I’ve tried several affiliates and have not had that much success yet. I hope to find ways to make that kind of income each month one day! I’m a new follower, because I love your blog and your tips!
    Thanks for the info!

    Hi there. I found you through Ducks N A Row blog hop. I was so glad that you posted this. I have reached the point where I was evaluating what avenues to use for my blog. Some of these I’ve heard of and am a part of and some I hadn’t. Thank you for being so helpful. I’ve signed up for your newsletter so I make sure I don’t miss anything.

    I just think it is so cool of you to share this with us! I hope to be at this point sometime in my blog career. Probably very far down the road though. Blogs are hard to grow when working elsewhere full time!

    Wow, this information is so valuable! I signed up for three of the services you listed here tonight, and I plan to look into some of the others as well. I have seen other bloggers summarize their income, but I have never seen so much earned or so many different monetizing options. Thank you for sharing this!

    Hi! Your blog is very interesting, even though I don’t have a blog myself. I subscribe to a lot, and I would love for you to pass out to your fellow bloggers the suggestion that some people need to have a pin easy and accessible . I find that I get discouraged if I can’t save things I enjoy, and then unsubscribe. So, it would be great if you could pass this word out for those things that ar, of cours, not copyrighted. Thank you.

      The easiest way to pin things you like is to use the PinMarklet browser add on from Pinterest. Then you can pin whatever you like from any website and blog, and not rely on that page or article having its own button. This is more flexible than the blogger having their own button and generally brings up all of the graphics and photos on a page so that you can choose which graphic to pin.

    Just really started monetizing my blog…well, at least concentrating on it in the last three months. The last couple of months have proven interesting. Have made a little money and still working on figuring out what or which monetizing works best for my site. Thanks for the info.
