I was making my way around all of the PF blog sites this morning and came upon a site that chronicles the happenings of a guy who is doing a lot of web based marketing. He called it affiliate marketing and talked a lot about click throughs and pay per click. As I looked around and explored his links, I found another site that actually linked to their site that they derive income from. It was pretty interesting. It basically was a list of articles that they had written with a ton of ads integrated in. My first thought was it’s the equivalent of html based SPAM. You know what I’m talking about. A web page that exists solely for them to put ads on. The content was pretty weak. Is this what it’s all about?
I’ve been posting to this site because I find it therapeutic. At best I’m hoping that I’ll get enough income from this site to cover the hosting costs now that I’m not on blogger.
Maybe I should consider putting up a few other sites. I’m not sure what I’d post on them, and know that my time is limited enough that I probably wouldn’t make a ton of progress on it. I think I’ll just work an hour or two of overtime and call it good. I know that defeats the purpose of passive income, but I can make so much more money in such a short amount of time, compared to the amount of effort I’d have to put in to other sites. What do you think?
