What Really Works?

The Internet is filled with outrageous claims, but I am sure most people online often find themselves asking What Really Works? I know I sure do!

I bet if you get close enough to any of the millions of bloggers you find online today, you would discover that they at least had a passing thought of making some extra money from their efforts, but very few of them accomplish that goal. They try advertising with AdSense and promote Affiliate Products with reviews, but the bottom line remains empty, or nearly so.

If you are anything like me, there is not much chance of becoming the next big Internet Millionaire any time soon, but a few hundred extra dollars to make life more enjoyable is very easy to attain. I finally quit swinging for home runs all the time and learned that bunts add up to the runs you need to win the game much easier.

Take this blog for instance, if I end up making even one or two new friends a month I am a happy camper. I have fun doing this anyway, so anything extra is just icing on the cake. In the meantime, I get better known and my income keeps going up.

So just be patient and keep learning all you can. You will discover what really works for you too.

See you all online!


  1. I couldn't agree more. I'll admit that when I first started, I felt like I was blogging to an empty audience and in some respects, it felt like a waste of time, but then I started following the likes of John Chow. Yet, I then realized that he was the only one making the money and if I wanted to get to that point, I'd have to practically sell my soul.

    So I decided to just blog out of passion and visit other blogs, guest post or comment and that's how I'd get my visitors. So far, it's slow going, but it seems to be working.

  2. I may not become one of the millionaires in the nearest future but like you I am enjoying the fact that gaining new friends is worth it. I am blogging not just to earn money and friends but this is some sort of passion apart from releasing the pressures and stress in my day to day life. I am a stay at home mom and this is one way to make contact with the outside world.
