Why I Blog And The Website That Will Get You Blogging Too

About 3 months ago, I came across a post through Digg. The article was titled: The Internet’s Biggest Google Whores and it was written by a guy named John Chow. In this article, it talked about the top 8 people who are earning the most money from Google Ads. The article was impressive and inspirational. I was surprised to learn the amount of money people can make from placing ads on their website! From this article, I discovered John Chow, a self proclaimed Dot Com Mogul and owner of the famous site TheTechZone. His personal blog, John Chow Dot Com, mainly focuses on giving advice and personal experiences about making money from the internet/blogging. He often uses his own website as an example and testing ground for the advice he dispenses. Not only is he extremely open and generous with his knowledge but all of the money he makes from his website is donated to charity. You would be surprised at how much money he’s made in a very short amount of time! Every month he does a recap of how much he makes with a thorough explanation of the hows and whys.

John Chow earns over 1K in October
and over 2K in November

All from putting ads on his website and blogging!!!

John’s goal is to get people like me and you to see how it can be done and that it is possible. Again, John Chow does not get anything out of this himself, at least monetarily, which makes his website that much more appealing to me. Right now, he is even allowing people to review his website, receive a linkback, and have a chance at winning a miniTvUSB!

His advice is indispensable. My favorite, and what I consider the most helpful blog posts about making money off of the internet, are:
So You Want To Be A Google Whore?
Two Tweaks To Generate More Traffic
My Top 10 Best WordPress Plugins

With this wealth of information at my fingertips, I decided to turn a somewhat inconsistent hobby (I have been blogging on and off since I’ve discovered the internet) and my passion for all things related to the Internet to something that can earn me some money at the same time. Although I can’t quote numbers even close to John Chow’s, I am no longer blogging for free and my counter has grown immensely from the days when I could count the number of people who visited my website on 1 hand.

So I haven’t quit my day job but at least all of my web hosting fees are taken care of, thanks to John Chow Dot Com.

I never used to pay attention to that sort of thing. I didn’t think enough people read my blog to really make $ off of it. :P
