Don't Be A Make Money Online Wannabe

I am so sick and tired of seeing blogs titled or themed around “make money online”! How many of these blogs do we need!? Don’t you think the market is already flooded with those type of blogs already?

And for those of you who spend all your time reading these blogs as if they were the Bible- if you’d stop worshiping their blog and spend some time on your own, maybe you would start making some money yourself!

Make Money Online
Don’t Take The Wrong Advice

I find it humorous when I see someone with a blog theme of “make money online”, and their blog looks like garbage, it’s full of bugs and doesn’t function correctly, and chances are they don’t even make enough money online to pay for a cup of coffee.

There are hundreds of new blogs that are put online every single day, and the great majority of these blogs are started by people who are not very “Internet savvy” or who lack experience in website design, programming and search engine optimization. If you fall in to that category- don’t think I’m bashing you, but let me make things crystal clear for you- you’re not going to be an overnight millionaire! If that’s your goal, go buy a lottery ticket- your odds are probably much higher that way.

Hey, we were all noobies at one time, and I’m the first to admit that I was too. I find nothing wrong whatsoever at being new to this game- in fact, I find it admirable that so many have the willpower to go outside of their comfort zone and try something new. What I have a problem with are those who give these people misguided information and unachievable hopes and dreams. It’s a classic case of the blind leading the blind.

Operating a website is just as much a business as any other- it’s like your storefront, your business card and your TV commercial all wrapped up into one package. As with any other business, you don’t want to take advice from people who know nothing about your field, or who have tried to make it in your field and have failed miserably. However, I see it all the time- and I’m sure you do too- those new to the idea of opening and operating a blog are listening to and taking advice from people who are themselves failures (and try to lie about it) or who don’t know anything themselves and they try to make it sound like they do.

My Purpose For This Blog

Now that I’ve ranted & raved and made my point, let me tell you why I’m here. I’m not here to give you false hopes and to tell you that you can make $1,000 per day by throwing some Adsense ads on your blog.

What I’m here to do is to instruct new and experienced blog owners alike how to improve the blog you already have.

  • Originality
  • Content

I’m here to teach you the in’s and out’s of how to go about designing, customizing and optimizing your blog to make it more user friendly and more optimized for each engines, which will bring you lots of FREE targeted traffic each and every day.

  1. You’re right – there are definitely enough of those blogs – I just said screw it and made my blog into a personal blog – I can talk about whatever I want, and if I succeed great, if not – oh well lol!!

  2. Great post – I have noticed the same thing.
    I therefore tried to position my sites differently in that I simply post how I did something and how long it took in case someone else wants to learn. Specifically for those newcomers who read all the fluff but don’t see all the hours or actual earnings that any of the sites put in / get out.

    I am implementing some of the “earn money” ideas and telling people how they work / if they work / how much time & $ is spent / earned.

    They will get a real understanding of how long stuff takes and how much/little is made or lost. I put hour & income trackers on my sites as well. This is in actual hours & $ – so far for Jan. 65 hours in and $310 out.

    I hope I don’t fall into the category of which you speak, but if I do, I suppose I can only get better.

  3. I personally am also tired of the same “run of the mill” make money online blogs. We all know about affilite programs already, now give us something we can use!
