I’ve long been planning a post on ways to make money using your blog. For the past year, I’ve had more work than I can handle and have had to pass up a number of good opportunities to focus on the best. That post is still under production, but today I learned of a site where bloggers or other internet users can make money by offering their services to others.
Affordable SEO service gigs can add up to a lot of extra cash. Some offerings include article translation, programming, social networking, twitter following, blog reviews, article writing, etc. Completing some of these assignments can add a nice cash flow to your online business.
If you do check out this company, however, please stick to the golden rule. Some of the offers include “blackhat/bulk links” and forum and blog linking. This morning I spent way too much time deleting over 4,600 spam comments from my blog — all from #@$%! people trying to get high-ranking links to their sites. (And I have 10,600 spam comments deal with on my lifestyle design blog. Not happy about that.)
If I got paid my going rate for all the time I’ve wasted wading through spam emails and spam comments, I’d be a wealthy woman. It’s such a drain on productivity to have to manage the thoughtless, unsavory acts of self-centered, unethical people.
Trust me, anyone who uses the word “weblog” is a spammer, and if the (real) comment below shows up on a post about plugins, you know you’ve been hit:
Simply want to say your article is as astonishing. The clearness to your publish is just spectacular and that i can assume you are an expert in this subject. Well together with your permission let me to seize your feed to stay up to date with drawing close post. Thanks 1,000,000 and please continue the rewarding work.
You can make money online and you can make it ethically — without harming others or causing wasted productivity. Just spend some time thinking about how your actions impact others. Then, dive in and get to work.
