Armchair BEA: Day Four: Beyond the Blog






I'm not aspiring to be a writer, or even write for newspapers.... though if given the opportunity I sure wouldn't pass on it. I am a poet though. I have been published. Though that is not my goal. Poetry, like books, is my outlet.

Now for monetizing my blog or making money off of it... I wish!
I do have Google Ads, and use Amazon Affiliate Links, but make money... HA! I have yet to see a penny!
Again, this is not my goal so I really don't try hard at it.

I use other things like Like.net or Sponsored Tweets. Where you use social network sites to make money... usually paid via Paypal. I also love sites like Swagbucks... add up points for goodies... who doesn't like that?!
And FYI, two of those links are referral links where I get credited! Please use them if you are new to the site.

So that's all my tips... I know, not much, but that's where you come in. If you have better tips, leave a comment with it or your url. Any tips are appreciated here.

  2. Lol, I'm with you on not taking it to hard. I've actually earned $10 since I started using the affiliate thing, but that's a lot thanks to friends thinking about clicking on my links, lol. It's definitely not a great way to get money, but it's a good start to test the monetizing out! Or I think so, haha.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers.

Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners.
