As you can tell, i write a lot of paid plugs. It’s a good way monetize your site in the early stages. But after you site gains some traction, you should get off of it. I am planning to not do that many paid plugs in the coming months. I’ve grown my blog enough to where i don’t need it to make money online. I also don’t like that i am forced to write posts in between the paid plugs. It gets pretty tiring. It was cool when i didn’t have that many sites, but now that i multitask, i don’t enjoy it as much.
I plan on keeping bloggernoob for the long haul. This was my first blog and it will always be my baby. I have a lot of other sites that are growing. I don’t need to do paid plugs on this site anymore. I grew my other sites enough to where i can do paid plugs on those sites.
Writing often has it’s good points, but i think that one post a day is more then enough. Anything more is kinda overkill. My posts don’t get read by as many people. When i leave a post up for over a day, it’s usually filled with comments. Google analytics tells me that a lot of people clicked to the individual post. But, on days that i write like 6 posts, those page views get split up. I did more work, with less reward. Writing such posts also cheapens your blog. It also hurts you in the eyes of google.
The more important reason why you shouldn’t write these posts is the fact that you’re not making much off of them. Why take an upfront fee of $10 when you can stretch it out with an affiliate review and make $100. Affiliate marketing is the way to go. Don’t rely too much on these type of posts. I’m learning that it’s not that great.
