Today, I unexpectedly and surprisingly received an email from one of my fellow bloggers. In his message, the sender said he is falling into a drawback situation regarded to his well-established blog and asked me whether he would stay with or say goodbye to his old enough and quite popular homepage along with lots of loyal readers. At first, to me, it was so shocked question since I have known, so far, he has to spend a lot of time and effort to build its fame, as it has gained today. After a couple of minutes of thinking to find a proper answer, at last, I would like to respond him that you should sell it to a more suitable blogger. Otherwise, his blogging inspiration may be exhausted soon, even the blog will eventually come to no where.
Let me go more detailed about the case of the guy. As far as I known, he, a friend I have never met, is still a single. Though he works hard, apparently in the time of downturn, he is facing a lot of problem with life cost and other unavoidable expense like other normal workers and personnel including me. Also, I guess (and may be sure) that he is looking for (or has been taking care already) a little girl in the hope of building his small family in the time to come.
Rebuilding your plan from the scratch
The expense is so high and there is no sign that it will stop counting, whereas the total income is so “stable”, managing a non-revenue blog is definitely a so drawback daily task. As a boy will soon becoming a man, I think, now is the proper time for him to take afresh his life. Friend! I know you are a true loyal user and blogger of this Internet Service Provider giant, yes Google, the frequent name. But I wonder why don’t you widen your blogging plan and look for some potential income sources from your hard work. I am sure you will really fancy blogging more if you are paid for what you have contributed.
I strongly recommend you to rebuild your blog plan with a long time ahead. Instead of spending your time and effort to write for your current blog each day as a hobby, you might consider establishing a new English language blog and try as best as you can to generate one long enough, useful and unique article each two-day.
I know that you are now hooking on the cheapest package Hatching at Hostgator, that means you are able to host one domain only. But you should not worry about it. I suggest you should wait till the upcoming Black Friday event to purchase another discounted hosting package for the next project. Otherwise, you may purchase another cheap hosting package to make the current blog alive and give the favor, Hostgator in this case, for the new English blog. Remember that, you should use a premium WordPress them such as Elegantheme or Theme -Junike to avoid being hacked by any unwanted problems in the future.
I have ever heard that you have already built another English blog, so why you not keep working with it by writing more articles, drive more high quality traffic and start getting money?
Start getting money from your blog
Pure blogging brings you joy but in the long run, you will surely be more excited if your hard work turns to be some kinds of benefit. Blogging as a hobby and blogging for food are two separate goals but combining them into one, as professional bloggers do, is my recommendation for you guy! Blogging trip should be treated as a real business.
However, to be honest, it is not easy to make money from your blog. I have recognized that almost well-known bloggers could only get the their first payments from blogging after several months or more. So you must not hurry in generating money from blog. Instead of that, you should focus on writing more article as many as you can, establish a good relationship with other bloggers and targeted readers.
From my point of view, first, you should try shake hand with Google Adsense because of its reliable, stable and increasing over time income source. The more traffic you drive, the more money you get. There is nothing hidden secret at all. Perhaps it will take you five or six months to get the first Google Adsense payment. But the second one may drop by your door after next 2 months only. And afterwards, perhaps Google Adsense will be a stable income for you each month. That is why almost of us love passive income.
As many high-profile bloggers suggest, we should widen our income sources when our blogs have already gotten wide expose. Affiliate marketing is a good choice but you might have to work hard to get the first sale from it. Only well-known bloggers may get money from that way, I think.
Anther popular ways to make money from blog is writing paid review. You can take part in some communities such as SocialSpark and Sponsorereview. These markets help you connect directly with advertisers. You receive offers, accept them, do your work by writing a personal review, publish on your blogs and get paid. The amount of money is not high as you expect but this is a good way to get more income from your well-established blog.
Good luck friend and I hope to see your new blogging trip soon. Honestly, I would like to advise you not sell your current blog, but that is what you have to accept if you want to take afresh in the hope of gaining more new milestone in our digital life.
