Now that is a project, that takes time, lots of patients, trial and error, and did I mention Time. Yes, you need to devote time to going to other blogs, leave a comment, so that if they choose they can come to your blog. Make sure when you do make a comment you type in your blog address, so they don't have to come looking for you, when your filling out the comment section. There is a place for the URL use it, and use the name of your blog for your name. You don't want to become to obvious with your wanting them to comment yours. That in it self will come with time and effort. In other words once you do fill in that information, there really isn't a need to repeat it in the actual blog, that's my opinion though. If something gets to redundant I tend to ignore it. Visit sites like Carnival of Making Money Online, daily, to submit a new story, vote on other stories that have been posted, or just leave a comment.

I am researching other possibilities to get my page to be seen by others. Like for instance I posted a blog in my, Myspace account asking others to come look at what I am doing now, take a look, leave a comment, etc. I also did this in Facebook, I went to my notes and posted another saying the samething and leaving my url. One thing I also added to both posts was the phrase, "Pass it Forward". I figure if they like what they see or know someone who could use some of the information I have given here they can pass it forward. Its a Win Win situation. Forgot to mention that in myspace my blog is set to be viewed by the public, this way if someone has done a search and happened upon mine, that will also give that blog exposure.

I try and do this everyday, one here, one there, you never know when you will get a reply, or a comment. Each one makes it one more that has seen your idea's, stories, advertising, advice, helpful hints, etc. Mine isn't much to look at here, thing is I am willing to keep learning, reading and trying my own way of working at this.

Just keep plugging away at it, and don't give up, there is so, so many other blogs out there with GREAT helpful, idea's, and suggestions. If something isn't working, try another, and so on.

Been doing some more reading after I posted this, there are many, many good tips to learn from if you take the time to read the blogs, maybe leave a comment saying thank you for your help. Myself I have been listing some in my information links, so that I can go back to them to pick up on what I may have forgot, or when I am ready to try something else, I have the information ready for a click.

Blogging, Adsense, social networking, oh

Oh my! is right, been doing a lot of reading and then reading some more. Went to work to try some of the things I was reading about, then find another page that says, don't do that do it this way, or that way.. to funny. The thing is people find what fits them best; they talk about it because it has worked for them. Doesn't mean another way won't work, just that they found their niche. Now with someone like me scrolling through the pages, because others took the time to write out what they did and what steps they took, just WORKS. I like it. I am finding so many different and unique ideas and suggestions for this blog in the future.

Yesterday I did just that did some reading and went and tried something out.. Guess what I didn't read enough on it.. yep mistake time I signed up for some kind of tracking, analysis program, only thing was it interrupted my Adsense somehow, it wasn't recording anything at all, just said, Data Not Available. So in that mistake I learned don't jump to quick, its ok to try things just know how to undo them in case they don't work first. That’s what I learned today. What was nice though I already have a pretty good understanding of html and how it all works, I just had to figure out what to do. This time I was lucky, the first thing I did was cancel the analytic program off on my blog. I went back to my Adsense report and still said, "No Data Available". So that said to me that somehow that program interrupted the ads. So what I did, is I went into edit mode in the blog and took out the existing ads and replaced them with new ones to see if that would work. It was a guess on my part. After I replaced my ads, I waited for a few, then went back into my Adsense report to see if there were any changes. Yes!!! The data was back in tact. So with that mistake I learned not to be too quick without knowing how to undo in case it doesn't work.

Now for the research after that, oh my, so many blogs and sites, and ideas, and and and... to read. I have learned a lot today. Today after that mistake, I decided to make it a reading day more so than a doing day. Gain some good knowledge of this new adventure I have chosen to pursue. I am so thankful for all of you who has written your idea's, your knowledge gained, and offering advice in the, 'How to's' and 'What not to do's'. My main source for finding blogs on this subject of the day was at Carnival of Making Money Online, the reason is because they have so much right there in one spot to check out, read and learn from. And to think I found that site by working one of the other programs trying to make a bit of money. Like I said in the previous post how much something like that is worth in actuality to me, is priceless.

I am going to head back to reading; I am reading a 4 part series about blogging for 2009. So far it has been an interesting read.

Would love to hear your idea’s and comments, even advice to help, all would be appreciated.

Why I started a blog in the first Place

I have been online for several years, one thing that intrigued me, is that I know you can make an income online without having to start your own small business or what have you. You can sign up for different programs of many types. The reason I started this is because of one of those programs, I am sure you have heard of, Adsense. I have seen it advertised, as well as many emails in the spam folder. I am sure many of you have seen the same thing. Well I am one that takes notice and researches them out to see if they are worth the time or totally a scam.

I have read alot about Adsense, Bad and Good, some condemn it, some claim to have made thousands from it. So far from what I read, both are viable, condeming it because it didn't bring in the income you THOUGHT you should make from it, and those that have made thousands which usually are the larger companies. Now what I am wondering is if the happy medium can be accomplished by just working this on my own. Thats my challenge.

So in signing up for Adsense, it requires you have a website or blog. Well, I don't really have the patients to write up a website at the moment so I opted for a blog instead. After that decision I had to figure out ok where? and make sure it was ok to run Adsense with it as well. I looked into Myspace since I have an account there. In the research I did, you can try and use it there, just don't get caught is the attitude from what I read. So I opted not to try it there, yet. I plan on doing somemore research on that one yet. Then I realized I have a few blogs bookmarked so I went to them, and found that Blogger (this one) is part of Google. OK that works, I have an account with Google, that works. With that I started this blog as you can see.

I then went back to Adsense and completed the online application. Upon completetion it tells you that you may have to wait 2-5 days for acceptance of your application. So I came back here and started working on how I wanted this to look and all. Then I needed to check my email for another program I am working with and to my surprise my application was already processed and accepted into the Adsense program. YAY Happy The start of the beginning...

I was looking to see if there was a referal link, in looking I have just read that Adsense is no longer doing the referal anymore. They have something going on with an affiliate program that you can sign up for to make up for the referals others had going. That isn't going to affect me since I just entered the Adsense world, and learning it one step at a time here.

One thing that was nice was when I went to add it to this blog it was easy, if your like me when your doing something new you search and look at all your options, tweaks, perks, etc. In do this I found that Blogger has a application already set up for setting up your Adsense for you. Oh, I should also mention that when you use this in your Adsense application, you will need to give permission for Adsense and Blogger to work together. That also brings another point up, because of or for whatever reason, haven't looked into it yet, Blogger earns a percentage of what you make with the Adsense you have running here. So if you have another site that won't dive into what your making I would suggest use it. I am not there yet. Like I said, I am starting from the starting line sorta speak. Just make sure that if where you choose to take it, you have permission to add it to your site, or blog. Don't loose an account because you didn't do the research first.

Now where was I, oh going through Adsense and getting things started. They have video's and wizards to help you learn how to do it. Thing is, it all takes time, not only time, patients, a time to listen so you can learn, but the willingness to actually hear and learn as you go. Don't jump from one thing to another without knowing what your doing. That is one of my policies in learning as I go, read it, learn it, go on to the next step.

My next plan is to do some research in how others have used Adsense, how they worked it and promoted or whatever. I need to learn the in's and out's. I do this by doing alot of reading, which will take time, so if I don't have something written in the next few days, please understand I am doing my research first, its a must.

After reading this you have an opinion, suggestion, or just a comment, feel free. I read, I listen, I appreciate your time.

Thank you

First day for everything, Right?

So far I have been able to get this going add a few things, including my picture. That wasn't so

I have been joining some online sites to try and make some extra income right now. I have recently been introduced to a very wonderful lady who has been helping me as I help her with what I already know. Thats how it works though, if you think about it we are all on huge team working together for the goal to succeed. Thank you SandynPaul, I appreciate all you have helped with, the most is that you are a good listener, Thank you.

I need to get a bit more organized with all of this, I kind of jumped in head first. Time to figure out how things work and make them work.

If your following this later on here I will be posting some of the sites that I have and others that I am interested in and see if I can get any feed back on them.

The Beginning,

This is my first adventure in working with a blog of my own. I have one at Myspace, that to me is completely different than having one here. I am learning as I go. If you have any advice please let me know, I would appreciate any type of help.

I plan on learning how to use Google to my advantage, learn how to use adsense, how to make money with my laptop doing home jobs with this blog. As I learn I will be adding the website address's in my list of links. Come back and check often because I know I will be adding many of them, from advice, how to earn, how to blog for money, all basically free. All we have to do is take the time and read, take it in, then use the knowledge we have gained.

Thank you

Smile, it works
