So, I have turned over a new leaf.
After consulting with currently one of the most successful Internet Marketers who just happens to be a personal friend, he has encouraged me to engage in some advertising in order to monetize my blog.
He advised joining some ad networks such as Azoogle Ads and PepperJam Network in order to extend my reach and improve my Internet Marketing skills.
Starting out, I am going to create my first ad campaign on Yahoo Search Marketing, then try MSN Ads, and finally, after I select and hone my niche selections, and do some competitive analysis and create a business plan, I will launch some Google Adsense campaigns.
In all of these endeavors I will strictly avoid any "Black-Hat" techniques, as I do not want to try to game the system, but work with the excellent tools provided to make legitimate websites that offer quality products or services. Google frowns and even 'slaps' those who would try to 'game' the system, and I have no interest in doing anything deceitful or dishonest.
In other words, I want to be in this for the long-haul, and try to realize some of the successes my friend has experienced.
I hope to use this blog as a kind of journal of my progress, and will state some of my income results as they occur, not to impress but to inform that it is indeed possible to create a stream of income using the internet, and advertising as the basis for the growth.
Thank you for your comments, as they will fuel my interest in posting the results as often as possible.
To your success as well! Nicholas Chase - (future Super Affiliate).
