Blogging, up and downsides

SEOWhen I look back at this year, or at least as far as it has come for now, I can say without hesitating it’s been quite a year for me. All the way back in January I started blogging, for money, that is, and a lot has changed for me ever since.

In the beginning I wasn’t so sure whether to admit I was receiving a compensation, as it simply didn’t seem ‘right’ at that time. However, soon my PageRank boosted from 0 to 4, and PPP started to require disclosure, so I simply had to change.

Back in those days it was great, I could easily post twice a day, often opportunities of more than 7,5 dollar each for less than 150 words; not even half an hour work. The results of that were clear, my income has skyrocketed; from a scholar without work to a blogging one with a great hobby that brought in money!

This went on for quite a while, until about my birthday in October, when Google decided selling links was bad and had to be punished – no Google, you’re not some kind of cop! After that, my, and many others blogs lost their PageRank completely.

While losing the PR doesn’t seem like a big issue, it basically is when you blog for money. The reason is simple, nearly all advertisers require a certain PR for bloggers to be able to write for them. The conclusion? No PageRank equals no opportunities and thus no money.

Ever since I’ve found it hard to switch over from blogging an hour a day or so to not blogging at all – which also explains why my blog is pretty empty since October this year. From now on I’m trying to pick up the blogging again to see if I can also just motivate myself to post my thoughts without financial backing of it, time will tell if I can! buy Levitra online buy Albendazole buy Plan B online

    Love you too, would’ve been nice if you would also come up with arguments and perhaps your own blog… Whatever you think, even the biggest blogs such as Engadget advertise and promote in their posts, though it doesn’t seem to be noticed.

    I, myself don’t really see the point in this whole “blogging” thing, alright you can “share your thoughts” and all, but really, do you need too? So I can’t seem to find any up-sides other then money.. Is this really all for money?

    I have been having pain in my abdomen and my exasperated doctor finally ordered a HIDA-scan which determined that my gall bladder is not functioning correctly. He recommends having it removed at my convenience. Both my mom and my brother got to the point (without warning) of having a full blown gall bladder attack and have to have it removed. I am scared of getting to that point but would like to know what the downsides might be to going ahead and having it removed.
