I’m always advocating multiple blogging. Guys, it really is the only way to make money online. It doesn’t just have to be blogs. But you have to set up more then one site in order to make any real cash. If you don’t think you can hang with multiple sites, then don’t expect to make a lot of money online.
One of the hardest parts about setting up new sites is that you tend to run out of juice. You run out of content. You can’t create anything new. You brain is foggy and your fingers restless. I set up a new site every few days. I’ve been a bit busy with my day job, so i haven’t had the time to focus on my websites. But, when i’m not swamped, i try to create a new site everyday. Do you know how i do it?
How can one man create so many websites? Where do i get the material? I read a lot. I have stack loads of trade magazines. When i feel dry for material, i go to the book store and pick up a few magazines.
I think magazines are better then books when creating content. Web surfers are not book smart. They are magazine smart. Maybe not even that. Web surfers are comic book smart. They have short attention spans and will only read something that is easy. And they’ll only glance at your content if there’s a nice graphic or image on the page. That’s why i put up celebrity pictures. It’s a way of getting attention. If you read my post and realize that the photo has nothing to do with the post, then so be it. At least you read my post.
If you’re planning on starting a wedding blog, get yourself a copy of bride magazine. One issue can be source material for 20 posts. You’ll also get ideas about how to monetize your blog. Magazines are like giant ads. There are more ads then content. So, you’ll be able to understand how that niche is supported. You’ll get a better picture of who is paying for ads.
