Last week I told you about BlogsToRiches, available for the low, low price of $47. John Hawkins and Laurence Simon both offer up actual advice on making money from you blog. Both agree riches are not likely, but extra income is possible.
During my period of unemployment (which if all goes as planned will end this week – knock on wood) a few folks have suggested that I turn my technical skills into a blog business opportunity. I thought about it, but having worked with Stacy, Robyn, and Joni I know that blog designers are seriously underpaid. There’s not even a market for blog plumbers, which would be closer to what I do.
If I could make plumber rates it might be worth it. The problem is most stuff is free or cheap when it comes to blogs. You don’t see a lot of $100 an hour work in this space. You don’t even see a lot of $10 an hour work.
I’ll keep doing it the old fashion way, as favors.
Many have said “thanks” with money and/or gifts, which is always appreciated, but never required.
