Working with Squidoo

I am new to Squidoo - and I seemed to miss the boat.

But better late than never. So I decided to create a lens or two and see how things go. Being new to Squidoo I don't really know all the tips and tricks. What I do know is that if you create a lens on something you are passionate about, it makes the entire process all the more easier.

Here are some of my lenses. Take a look and tell me what you think of them.

As you can see, the topics I covered are all related and based on things I work on everyday. Over the coming weeks I will be working on creating a few more lenses and working on interlinking and promoting them.

Do you have lens?

Earnings Update

Here is an update of my earnings so far across my blogs and other sites. To be honest I havent concentrated too heavily on monetization so far but will look to do so in the coming months.

Text Link Sales - $30.00
Ad Sales - $8.00
Helium - $0.60
MyLot - $2.61
Directory Link Sales - $6.00

Total: $47.21

This past month I have put a lot of work into Helium - a site which pays you to write articles. Hopefully this work will start to pay off over the coming months.

I have pretty much given up on MyLot. Although it used to do alright, I can no longer justify the time it takes to earn what I want from that site. I think I will just leave it and see how my referral earnings go.

The bulk of the earnings came from link and ad sales - something which I hop to continue.

How to Make Money Blogging

There are many ways to make money blogging. Some are easier than others but one thing is certain - making money blogging isn't instant and it can be hard work. The good news is that plenty of people are making good cash with blogs.


Adding adsense to your blog is very easy. If you use blogger, than its simply a matter of linking your adsense account. If you use Wordpress than there are plenty of plugins available to automatically insert ads into your blog.

Paid Posts

Paid posting has died off a bit recently but opportunities are still available. Try using PayPerPost or SocialSpark. Its simply a matter of having a blog with a 20+ posts and some traffic. You don't need a huge amount of visitors coming to your blog, but the more you have the more you earn per post.

Text Links

You can sell text links on your blog if you have a Pagerank greater than 0 or a decent amount of traffic. You could go with a company like TextLinkAds although they will take a cut of your profits. Instead try selling links directly on your blog or through a forum such as The Digital Point
