Nobody likes throwing money away. But i’m sure most of you do when you’re starting out in the blogging game. I know i did.
First of all, never pay for anything when you’re starting out. Don’t waste your money hosting cash contests, or paying for advertising. It won’t help until you understand how the blogging economy works. Once you figure out the math of blogging, then you can cautiously spend your hard earned greenbacks.
I’m still bitter for buying text links on textlinkads. What a load of shit. I only did it cause my deposit of $25 got me $125 worth of text links. ($125 worth of shit…more like it) Anyway, i advertised on a bunch of no name “make money online” blogs. I place one overpriced ad on tylercruz dot com. It got me a few hits. But it really wasn’t worth the money. I later realized that i could get free hits via sites like, blogcatalog and entrecard. Also, i was able to get a free link on tyler’s blog just by reviewing his blog. See what i’m getting ad? You don’t need to pay for shit. Everything online can be had for free. Just gotta look, son!
