Going to Need Some Advertising Revenue

Well, I am making an expense commitment in an attempt to grow my blogging revenue so I will be needing some additional advertising deals over the next month before I run out of funds. Now I won’t really be running out of money, but I have made it my goal to not put any of my own funds into my online ventures. Up until now, I have been able to do this.

I started by writing for sites such as eHow and HubPages which didn’t cost a thing but would provide some revenue. Once I built up some funds and confidence, I made the leap to WordPress and creating my own blogs figuring that the domain and hosting costs could easily be covered by what I was making already.

A Pleasant Surprise

Well about 6 months after starting Cash Flow Mantra, I figured out that many personal finance bloggers were

How to Make $1,000 per Month as a Web Designer

If you are good at coding and have a flair for creating websites, you have a great skill that few Americans possess. With more and more people starting websites and blogs who have little knowledge of designing a website, web designers are in demand.

There are some basic requirements for a web designer. You should have a working knowledge of HML, CSS and Javascript. Knowing PHP is an extra bonus. You should also be familiar with the platforms you design for. In addition, you should have a graphics program such as Photoshop or Illustrator.

How Much Money Do I Make Blogging?

I am always wondering how much money people make while blogging and so am excited to read earnings reports. I started to put out monthly reports myself on this blog, but when summer came and golf and softball with it, I just got too busy to write consistently. I am blogging primarily for fun and don’t have a problem skipping a week or two of posting if there are other things that I need or want to be doing. I only published 2 posts on Cash Flow Mantra (CFM) during the months of July and August.

Nevertheless, I still feel that it is worthwhile for some of you to see what can truly be achieved by a part-timer. If you only put in a consistent amount of time each day, it is possible to earn some decent extra cash in a relatively short period of time.

To give you some

How to Start a Money Making Blog–Get Busy

We have already gone through a few steps on starting a blog for making money in the first three parts of this series. Well, now comes the difficult part and that is simply to go out and get it done. I wish there was an easier way, but there isn’t. It is going to take several months (if not a year or two) to actually get to the point of making money with a blog.

You will have to publish on a consistent basis. I would recommend at least twice per week if not more. I would also suggest publishing on a fairly set schedule. For my other blog, I have gone with a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule for my main posts and will sometimes do a round-up or link post on the weekends when I get a chance. The plan for this blog is to do Monday and Thursday.
