Lazy Sunday

Monetize or Commercialize My Blog from spiritwarrior on Comiqs

I’m treating myself to a lazy Sunday. That means doing nothing except for my usual entrecard routine and writing my site’s traffic report which I’d like to share with you. First of all, if you scroll down to my earlier post of Good Bye February, Hello March, I mentioned about the blog site I found that got me into entrecard. The owner was kind enough to leave a comment on my post, and the really funny part was the site has been on my entrecard premium bookmark after all. This was buried beneath several posts by the owner that’s why I never recognized it. Here it is:

That’s my summary fellow entrecarders and bloggers. I say not bad at all for a new blog. Well, I have to make a decision soon whether to transfer to a paid host using wordpress as many have already suggested. As far as monetizing my blog, I’m slowly testing the possibility but definitely not my priority at the moment. Right now, I’m enjoying my blogging and in the process of creating a niche blog. Any suggestion you have will be most welcome and appreciated.

You can afford to relax on a Sunday for it is really the day of rest. Your figures for your blog as released by Entrecard are very impressive. Can I exchange links with you? I have already linked you with my blog. I hope you do the same with mine. Thanks for the very informative post. God bless you and yur loved ones always.

Actually I really don't see why you need to migrate to a PAID hosting site. Migrating to Wordpress is a different thing though :)

I have a few friends who've experienced more downtime with their supposedly reputable paid-hosting company than I have ever had with my FREE webhost. Total downtime on my website has been under 3 hours the whole year (2007). Total downtime for one of my friends - 6 days (paid hosting). The other friend of mine had been having downtimes of 1 to 2 days each time it goes down, and it has already gone down TWICE this year.

Anyway for now Blogger serves me really well, and allows me to do "Disaster Recovery" on my own. Wordpress will be more problematic.

Sounds like you're doing well. I haven't signed up for entrecard yet. I keep stalling. So much blogging stuff to do and so little time. I can't figure out what's the most rewarding...

You're right foxtwo. I'll stay with blogger for now. Never had any problem with my site.

Hi Mel. I've added you already.

I feel so relax and ready to face this week with a smile.

Nice work on your blog! :) You're definitely smarter than grade 5 or 15 for that matter! ;)

Just my 2 cents on whether monetize your blog is: not yet.
Keep those nice content coming and grow the readership. What you could do however, is to get your own domain name and redirect that to your existing blog. So that when the time comes, you can migrate to a new blog/host easily.

Also, a word of thanks to you for liking our comic-creation service and using it on your blog entry. Since we've just launched, it's nice to be able to grow together with you and your blog! :)

Alexa is one of the most prolific and robust search engines alongside the leader Google. Alexa apart from having a search engine also has a web information company tracking information about all the sites. However, slowly but steadily Alexa is also being used for search engine.
