I would lie if i said I’m not hoping to earn some pocket money out of this blog,
but it’s main purpose is to learn new things while Writing to you and answering your questions.
(yes yes .. i know.. you don’t belive any of it… ).
after 1 month online with this blog i have wrote 35 Posts, received 44 comments and got asked (and answered) 5 Questions,
so whats wrong you ask ? well.. lets start with Comments.. i do like to improve myself.. it’s something i have.. not sure where i picked it up from,
comments usually help (they really do) so according to the “Top Commentators” table i have on the right side i have 7 people who comment (include myself)
and even they probably get money for that (not that i know of.. but thats the only explanation).
then there’s the Ask Me page.. i know that you probably don’t really want to Ask Me anything.. but I’m sure that sometimes…
late at night.. few minutes before you’re heading to bed.. there MUST be a question on your mind (yes.. yes.. I’ll answer anything.. really..) so why not Ask Me (do you get the hint !?) ?!
Another thing that bothers me is people (and blogs) like JohnChow.Com, i mean.. what do they have that i don’t ( i mean except readers,money,world glory,SEOed Blog, Content..) ?
The guy who owns this site is a “make money online” guru, that has turned his blog to a lean mean content-n-cash machine, in just 6 months (!!) he’s earning more then 7,000 USD per month… and thats.. like.. hmm.. 7000 time what i make from my blog.
i must admit that he has some VERY interesting ideas, specially the “Evil Blog Promotion Ideas” that i can see myself trying over and over until I’ll get banned from Google and Digg myself..
but the best thing about this guy, that unlike must others that copies and steal content, he has a very unique and original style, and he’s doing his best to answer questions (even if it makes him some more money in the way, like his “review his blog” in exchange for a Link offer),
and share his lifetime experience in Manipulating and Exploiting Money making systems (or letting others try that and get banned first).
Just to try and prove what he reached in just 6 months you can look at the 2 images below..
it belongs to some Weird Algorithm that was Inspired by Tristan Louis’s research
that uses the Technorati’s API to calculate how much your blog is worth..
as you can see below, my blog is worth little more then 5,000 USD – which is really great for a PR0, 1 month old blog..
On the other hand… if you consider that if you’ll multiply my 1 month old x 6 (the estimate age of john’s blog since the day he started to include ads) you’ll reach 30,000 USD
while as you can see, it’s worth more like 1,350,000 USD
So John… Having worth so much money (even if by very twisted Calculation) would YOU like to Comment / Link / Donate 1 month revenue to me ? (Pretty pretty please ?!)
