    I have student loans coming due soon and am thinking of trying ads for a little extra income to help w/those. We’ll see if I can do it, I’m a total newbie too, but this is inspiring.

    Thank you for sharing.

    I’m visiting today from the Raising Imperfection hop.

    This is great advice and if I can even make half of that a month, my husband would be ECSTATIC!

    Have a great Sunday!

    After reading your earlier post, I signed up for a couple of the sites you recommended and have been pleases. My earnings aren’t near yours, but I’ve been accepted to do a few product reviews, which is really fun! Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

    Hi! I would like to take a moment to thank you A LOT for starting these wonderful series. It’s very very helpful especially because I’m a new blogger too.
    With the list of affiliates that you provided, I applied to mostly all of them that were available internationally, but got rejected by the one’s I really wanted to work with. But, I will keep on trying.
    I would also like to ask something, can you recommend the merchants to join on shareasale which are profitable?

    I’ve very impressed by the affiliate sales! I unfortunately can’t join Amazon affiliates due to the state I live in but clicked through your share a sale link to check that out!


    • mmm1969

      Amazon isn’t what it used to be so I don’t think you are missing out on too much. The rate is pretty low and the tracking cookie is now on 24 HOURS! I think they are so successful that they don’t really need referrals anymore so the affiliate program is not so important to them.

      I’ll be covering more about ShareASale later in the newsletter series. Good luck Melissa.

    Your blog, advice, and clear-cut explanations are stellar. I also fully intend on learning to sew. My mother sews wonderfully and it’d be a crying shame if I didn’t learn all of her wonderful skills to pass on to my daughters. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you! 🙂

    I have found your posts very interesting, but I am still unsure whether to use my blog for advertising. I will continue to read and learn.

      Hi Donna. Glad to hear you have been reading, but of course no one HAS to have any kind of advertising or money making on their website – not all readers lie to see it, so the decision is entirely yours. But at least by having the facts you can make an informed choice.

    Great post! I’m going to sign up for a few of these today – and joined your newsletter. TFS!
    I found you today thru the Linky Party at Made In A Day, where I’m #26. I hope you get a chance to stop by my blog and leave a comment, too!

    I am loving your advice and appreciate your honesty! What is affiliate scheme bonus? I am totally impressed by our affiliate earnings


    • mmm1969
      March 7, 2013 @ 11:37 pm

      I won a $100 bonus from one of my vendors for referring a large number of sales in the month – result! There are occasional schemes to be awarded a bonus for reaching a certain target or placing a new advert for example. It will be interesting to see what my ‘don’t really do very much’ approach brings for March.

    Found you thru 504 main and I am so glad I clicked! I am going to read everything you posted later this weekend. I have been thinking of monetizing my blog but assume I need more visits – but it would be nice to learn the ins and outs in anticipation of blog growth!

      Do look back through the newsletter archive -the site is fairly new but the newsletters are where all of the best content and money-making advice is going to be so far. You can find the archive in the menu under the header. Good to have you on the team! It’s never too early to start.

    I just found your So Sew Easy blog on Pinterest and hopped over here, and I must say; IMPRESSIVE! I love your “failure” posts and pics, especially the “porn wrap top”! You are funny; I like that! You just made me a new follower. **blows kisses** Deborah

    Wow this is so helpful. I bookmarked this. I don’t make money with my blog now, but I’m going to start thinking about it in the near future. Thank you!! And thanks for sharing this and your sewing how-tos on my link party! Hope you can join again this week.

    Thanks for sharing this info. I am checking out these links. We have had some pretty nice returns from passionfruit ads…but we are always looking for new ways to grow!


    • Deby at Moms Make Money
      March 14, 2013 @ 12:39 pm

      Thanks for the info – passionfruit ads are new to me but I’ll certainly be checking them out and letting my readers know in due course how I got on.

    Hi there- May I ask you how you were accepted by Shareasale? I have applied and was denied last week. I am curious to know if you have insight into what they are looking for.

    Thanks for any help you can offer!


    • Deby at Moms Make Money

      Sorry but I don’t know of any tips I can offer – I applied, I was accepted. I think that persistence might pay off, a decline now is not a decline for life. If they send you an email with a few reasons why you might have been rejected, try to correct or improve upon any of the areas they mention and then reapply. I love your site and don’t see any reason why it might be rejected, so just give it another go.


What do you think?
