Make Money Online Free

Hey!

So I know it’s been what seems like forever, since I’ve written a blog post, but my life has been ON THE GO every single day, so I apologize for not having the time to keep up with it all and still maintain this blog very frequently.

But I do have a few new payment proofs to post, some updates on my personal life and blogging, some new sites I’ve joined, and some other goodies.. so stay tuned. I don’t want to write an extremely long cumbersome post that has everything jumbled up, so I’ll try my best to separate them in a few different posts.

First off, I hope everyone’s been doing well, both in real life and when it comes to making money online.

I know both can be a struggle, but keep your heads up!

I’ve been spending so much time out of my house that when I am actually in, I just want to curl up on the couch with my husband under my fuzzy blankie and watch tv; even if it’s UFC Boxing and Football which he can’t seem to get enough of.

Blogging, while I enjoy it immensely, isn’t my number 1 priority lately. My real day job and family comes first… and I mean can you really blame me? Isn’t that how it should be? After all, this whole thing DID start as a hobby, and I intend to keep it that way. It’s the only way I can enjoy making money on the internet without getting frustrated that I’m not making a million bucks like the big guys; John Chow, and ShoeMoney.

Hobby = Happiness.

blog decisions So even though I’ve still been making money online, and with this blog, the question has often danced in my mind; “How long will that keep happening if I don’t have the necessary time to put into creating new content, and doing SEO work which would keep my blog ranking well, and hence, keep me making money?”

The answer: Your guess is just as good as mine.

I’m clueless as to how long this blog will stay profitable to me if I don’t continue to work on it like I should be doing. So what are my options?

1. Keep the blog, updating and working on it only when I have the time to do so, and wait til it probably eventually dies and makes me $0.

2. Cut back on my personal life, cuddle time, etc, and make more time for blogging and SEO.

3. Sell the blog.

Honestly, option #2 is out of my book. I refuse to do it. I know some of the hardcore internet marketers might think it is necessary for success and it would be a good sacrifice of my time for future rewards, but my philosophy of life tends to differ. I believe life is short, and while I love this blog and the money I make from it, I refuse to trade time with my husband and going out with my friends and family, for staying in and locking myself out of the world to blog. I just won’t do it.

Money isn’t everything to me, and it certainly can’t by my happiness.

So that leaves option #1 and option #3.

What are your opinions?

I’m more leaning towards option #3. Yes really. I am actually considering selling my blog. Not immediately. But in time to come.

But I have to make decisions quickly, because if I keep doing what I’m doing right now, which is not working hard enough on keeping my rankings, then basically when it drops, it will be worth much less if in fact I do decide to sell it.

However, I have no idea of how much blogs “go for” nowadays. Like how would you even know what is a good price? What if I sell it for $1000, but the person that buys it makes that back within just a month or two, and then keeps the blog and makes 4x times that amount in a year or less. That wouldn’t be such a profitable deal on my end.

Anyone has any ideas of how blog worth is calculated? And no I don’t mean those “blog worth” sites because they all give you a different amount, and I believe they are just “estimates” for fun… not actual value.

I mean like a real formula for calculating blog worth. Example, (money blog makes per month currently) x (some random number here)… Or at least something like that.

Anyway, don’t be alarmed, because I haven’t decided that this is what I’m going to do yet. I just might keep the darn blog how it’s been going, because I do enjoy posting now and again and keeping it going, and God knows I love those payments I get ever so often for a couple of hundreds here and there… The little goes a long way for me!

So I guess I should get to the next post now, and post some payment proofs, etc.

Stay tuned!

    I love your blog, lady, and as much as I'd reeeeeally miss it, if you decided to sell it, I'd be OK with it (after a whole lot of vodka and therapy). :-)

    Have you heard of Siteredeemr? They buy websites – http://siteredeemr.com/. Might be worth trying if only to see how much your blog is worth.

    (p.s: remember my suggestion? re: hiring someone? Could that be option 4?)

    Hugs…

    Hey ebele! Aw thanks for the support as always hun. I've actually never heard of that site so thanks for suggesting it. I'll be sure to check it out! And yup, hiring someone is also an option, but my problem is that I don't know who I can hire that I can trust will do the work the way I'd do it, and also not charge a ton, because then the whole process of even having the blog to make money would become useless.

    Off course too.. the reason I am hesitant to hire someone, is because the entire concept of "making money without spending a cent" would be contrary in a sense, since I would be paying for the help.

    :/

    Thanks a lot tho! *hugs*

    I personally don't like option #3 because I think what makes this blog stand out is YOU. Even if you don't update your blog very frequently, you'll still get referrals and some ad clicks.

    I've seen a growing trend of some bloggers switching over to more video content because it can be quicker to record yourself talking instead of editing an article.

    The other option might be to reach out to some of your readers and open your blog to guest posts. This would allow you to still control what goes on the blog but free you up.

    I might be interested in buying your blog; definitely nowhere near for $1000, though. ;o) Or you could hire me, if that ever becomes a viable option. I have experience being entrusted with another person's site if you need a reference.

    @Laura,

    Hey there hun, aww thanks for the compliments on my blog. Yes I do try, and I've tried to make this blog "my own" ever since it existed. There are so many "make money online" blogs out there, and believe it or not, when I first started out and was asking for opinions from the "big timers", I got several critiques that I should not stick with the pink theme, that it was unprofessional, etc etc, but you know what, I stuck with it cuz it's ME. It's who I am, and even though this is a make money online blog, I attempt to show that I am indeed a REAL person!

    You actually gave some really good suggestions… and I'm definitely going to consider it. :)

    @GetPaidToBeaReferral,

    Hey there! Appreciate your comment and your offer, but my blog makes me $600 a month or so, without me doing much work at all.. there's really no way I'd sell it for a months worth..

    In fact, once on a forum, I can't remember which one though, it was a really long time ago… I once read that the average way to calculate how much you should sell your blog for is (the amount of money it makes per month) X (24.. which is 2 years)… that would = $14400, which seems extremely high to me.. so I'm not saying I want to sell my blog for that price.. but definitely not under $1000.

    Thanks for offering to be hired, if I ever decide that's what I want to do, I'll contact you!
