This blog is about to reach it’s one-year-anniversary mark in two months’ time. Already it has improved so much and the journey has been all worth it. A reader once asked me via e-mail, “What’s my secret?” Now I know that I’m no problogger, I don’t have fat AdSense cheques that comes to my mailbox every month, I’ve never even made it to Digg or del.ico.us’ front page before, but little by little, my efforts at improving this blog are being slowly rewarded.
Going back to the question I was asked, among my secrets, well it’s not exactly a secret since there are a thousand more bloggers who do this is to read the blogs of the A-list bloggers, the probloggers that is. Among them, is John Chow’s blog which will help you make money online.
Why read his blog?
It motivated me to do more, to work more on improving my site’s traffic. Whether by writing more useful and creative content or by making more connections and friendships over the net by visiting other blogs and sharing a comment or two.
This improvement in traffic would bring more exposure to my blog which in turn will help me get my messages across. Of course it will also improve my earnings from the ads I put up here but that I’ll use to help me get through the month’s telephone and broadband bills, contribution to my undergraduate thesis fund, and if there’s any extra money left I’ll save up so that one day I’ll be able to buy my dream digital SLR camera.
Another reason to read his blog is to gain ideas on how to be a better blogger and have a good blog. One of the key elements I’d like to learn from John is how to always give something back to the readers.
I could say more about his blog, but we know experience is the best teacher so I strongly urge you to visit his site. If you have a blog of your own, it’s also a good idea to review his blog and trust me, he’ll give back something well worth your time, space and link love.
*Unlike to other posts that came before this one, this is not a paid review post for John Chow, the benefits he offers in exchange for this review is just to good to pass off.
