I have been looking for ways to monetize my blogs and websites . After all affiliate and PPC advertising are proven to generate more income than a HBB selling products alone. Fortuneately I came accross a blog by Steve Pavlina ( www.stevepavlina.com ) . He gives concrete , none of that buy my e-book to get the whole story , help for people looking to make money letimately from the internet .
The whole article by Steve, over 7000 words, isn't a page tuner by any means but , if you are serious about learning to monetize a blog his blog is a must read.
Along with lots of other tips and solid advice Steve made a list of sorts, of the tools you'll need to be more web savvy , and hopefully convert that savvy into money . If you are ready to study up to power up your blogging profits start by learning the concepts and skills on Steve's list below.
