If you talk about make money, you gotta reveal your income


You know why you have to reveal your income if you are writing about making money as your blog niche topic?

Otherwise, your claims about making money is as good as those roadside peddlers who tell you that rubbing their snake oil twice a day will give you a bushy head of hair on your bald bead. Total BS, i.e. So, showing some screenshot or a cheque or two will give people who follows your tips that little assurance, kinda like seeing a strand or two of hair growing, likedat. Hehehe.

My blog income dropped tremendously since all my blogs got smacked with PR 0. I have also stopped monetizing three of my good blogs with text links and paid post. Hence, yes, income suffers but then, I didn’t rely on my blog income so it doesn’t hurt as much. But then again, I would say that USD1.3K for 12 days isn’t too bad, huh?

While on revealing blog income, here’s a cheque I got from Nuffnang a few days ago. I didn’t pay attention to which month this RM432 is from because LOL, I have a lot of RM400+ there still pending. I normally cash out when I feel like it.

And here’s one secret about making money with local ads. You may not know it but our local advertisers do spy on our blogs. So, yes, the advertisers do have their staffs eyeing our blogs. Hence, if you want to make money, stick with one company that works best. For example, if you have Toyota on your blog, do you think Honda will advertise next to it? We in Malaysia or Singapore live in these tiny countries and therefore, got to play to one tune. If we have too many rojak ads on our blogs, the local advertisers will definitely be turn off and in the end, no one wants to place any ads. And you may ask – Which company to stick to then? Well…..open your eyes and look around. I don’t have to spell it out, do I? (my other nuffnang cheque)

Added : AndrewOoi got his Nuffnang cheque too.

    Sponsored post and text links are still the biggest income source, does it mean PR0 doesn’t matter?

    kenny – It does. Many of the networks that I used to earn USD700-USD800 per month had kicked all of us with PR 0 out. But I am lucky I got many, many blogs so I can still survive with the rest of the companies that have other ways to measure our sites.

    parisB – Nuffnang pays according to our traffic. My women blog is also very pathetic. LOL. RM3 per week. But lucky my food blog and personal blog doing ok lor.

    Ya, ya. My food blog also doing okay with Nuffnang but advertisers are few and far between. Anyway, it’s passive income and I don’t mind it at all :D

    Yeah! Yeah! Better than nothing… but if you earn a lot in USD than you won’t take RM seriously.

    A very good point especially the car part

    Very true..Just like you cannot bring outside foods into a restaurant..same thing applies everywhere..

    On a side note..Showing screenshots of your cheque payment is so damn right..

    It just tells everyone that the company/community/Nuffnang/whatever-blog-ad-company does really pay you your hard earned money, not that you earned it because you are famous. Small players earned as well, not only big players.
