I started off my monetizing campaign by kicking ass in affiliate commissions. My choice site was commission junction. Bloggernoob dot com has made over 800 dollars with affiliate commissions. If i add the affiliate commissions from my other blogs, i’m at well over a thousand dollars. Since my post title is “beauty of multiple blogs” i will focus on my other blogs.
I have over 50 blogs in my blogging portfolio. I don’t like to co-mingle my blogging venture, so i won’t list them here. I do this cause i want to learn more about blogging. I feel that by separating my blogs, i can learn more about the organic growth of each blog independently. Anyway, i have a credit card blog that i update every two weeks. All i do is review a new credit card offer every two weeks. I have equifax affiliate banners on the sidebar. Surprisingly, i get a few visits a day from google search. And, even more surprisingly, i’ve had a few commission hit. It’s only about 27 dollars, but still. This is as passive as it gets. I put in about 10 mins of work every two weeks and i make money off of it. Amazing right? As the blog grows in search visibility, that blog will continue to get more commissions. Of course i won’t get rich off of that blog, but it’ll add to my income. Not all of my blogs produce income. But around 9 of them make a few dollars. If i get all of my 50 plus blogs to produce about 20 bucks a month, i’ll be making over $1000 a month. Now that’s some nice side income! Each blog only needs 10 mins of attention every two weeks. That equals out to a litte over 16 hours a month. Seems like a lot of work? Then just decrease the number of blogs. Don’t set up 50 blogs, just set up around 5 blogs.
Another example is my movie blog. That blog is set up with paid posting and it generates over a hundred dollars a month. That blog needs a bit more attention, around 1 hour every two days. I get some netflix and blockbuster commissions as well. It’s not that hard to set up multiple blogs so you should really look into it. Most web hosting sites offer multiple domain hosting. If it’s time you’re worried about, don’t. Like i said, i only spend around 10 mins every two weeks.
