What did I do wrong with my blog? I have removed all advertisement off my blog with one referral link left.
Few days ago, I post Review my blog October 2007 - one step closer to be a billionaire. I realized that I could not keep up my posting schedule to keep my viewers coming back. While I was traveling in Hong Kong and China, I was unable to keep my posting schedule. So I lost many viewers. Consequently I lost some revenue of advertisement. I proved why make money online with blog is not right for me. I don’t think I did anything wrong with my blog. I just believe that I don’t have enough time to focus on making money off my blog. As I mentioned earlier, making money off blog requires a lot of time and energy to do many of the following things. I just can’t afford all my time to focus on those things.
- Write quality content.
- Make interesting topic to attract more viewers
- Increase traffic through stumbleUpOn , Digg, and link exchange
- Make comments on other blogs
- Spend time on social networking
- Keep post frequency.
For me, I have been making good profit off my e-commerce stores. I have spent many my valuable hours on making those sites profitable. As I mentioned in the previous posts, many blogger who makes good money are also making good money off other things. Blogging for money are just their side job to make some extra money. This side job is just not working for me.
I often asked myself few questions.
- Are there any billionaires making money off their blog?
- Do they care about making few bulks per click on their personal blog?
- Do they even have personal blog?
- Do they really have time make such a small amount of money?
- Does Oprah Winfrey care about making money off her stumbleUpOn and myspace profile (Billionaire - Oprah Gail Winfrey is now a stumbler)?
So what can I do to make money off my blog without advertisement?
First of all, I removed most of the advertisement. It’s not worth to pay too much attention on it and check the revenue status. Second, I have received some feedback about the annoyance of advertisement on my blog. Personally, I really hate the pop-up ads over the links. I don’t even look at it on other bloggers. It’s the same way my viewers will feel like.
How to make money without the ad? Build up your reputation on something you really know about. You simply share your experience with your viewers. Some of them will come back and ask for help. You provide the solutions to your viewers. So they spread the words to the world. People come to you for more help. At the end, you are paid to provide your consultant service. I have done this in the past. It really worked well.
What do you think?"
One thing stories like this do though is show us how much we can sometimes rely on Google, forgetting that at the end of the day - Google is a robot. As much as Google helps us in our everyday lives - is it really making us dumber?

*The Mona Lisa has no eyebrows. It was the fashion in Renaissance Florence to shave them off
The astonishing brilliance of color and subtlety of modeling in Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa has been revealed by a remarkable combination of art and science. Sophisticated computer imaging, application of color filters and tonal
adjustments were applied in this completely original digital restoration by the author to reproduce the appearance of the original work of art in Leonardo's time.
The digital restoration here is based on a comprehensive study of Renaissance-painting techniques and materials, and comparative adaptation to early verified copies that are still in excellent condition today. You can now see the rosy flesh tones and dazzling hues that so impressed Leonardo's contemporaries. Details are revealed, such as the armrest of the chair on which her forearm is placed.
Descriptions of the painting by Georgio Vasari, an art historian of the Renaissance, mention the highly detailed realism, including individual eyebrow hairs and eyelashes as well as the the natural sheen on the surface of the eye. He mentions also the pearly tints of the surrounding canvas areas. A significant portion of his description dwells on the rosy aspect of the skin tones, and maintains that it is more like real flesh than pigment.
You can accomplish any goal by developing self-control and self-resistance. For example, per se your goal is to better the soul by losing weight. If you have self-control and resistance you will move away from temptations and reward self for the control your have taken. At what time a delicacy is offered, such as a piece of delicious chocolate candy, the likelihood is that you would be powerless to control self from eating that cake if you did not have self-control and self-resistance. For this reason, it is always in our best interest not to keep candy around. To assist you if your goal is to lose weight, see a preview of what the internal organs look like after eating too much chocolate. Your internal organs around your heart harden and it is much more difficult for the mortician to cut this area open after the person has left us. If you have, difficult resisting alcohol avoids keeping bottles of beer or whisky at your home, and stays clear of people that try to offer you alcohol. You can avoid this temptation by realizing the internal damage that alcohol will cause. It slowly tears down your immunity system, digestive system and will cause liver damage. Accordingly, by embracing these simple strategies you can control your life and lead a happy life.
Healthier minds and body’s are important for self-growth, which is the process of discovering the self and soul. The soul is the body, which you should become familiar with its functions. By developing self-awareness, you will notice your body when it tells you what it needs. Your body talks, For example, when you have to go to the bathroom, you feel this uneasy feeling, which rushes you to relieve self. In similar ways, your body speaks in other ways. For instance, when you are hungry your stomach growls, tumbles, and feels empty. This is your soul telling you what it needs. By attending to those needs when the body alerts you, you can become healthier and happier while discovering self.
Self-development phases assist you with finding the soul and self. For this reason, you need some techniques and practice the ones that work for you daily. Some of the best techniques are physically exercise. Don’t sit there and say, “Exercise is not for me.” Exercise is for everyone that wants to live happy and healthy. Don’t let your excuses hold you back from self-growth. Learn some information about your muscles, joints and bones to see the full benefits of exercise. Let’s face it; it will not kill you if you walk a few blocks daily. Cut the laziness, or else don’t complain later down the road when you have arthritis, fibromyalgia, or other types of joint and muscle degenerative disease.
Developing self-control will enable you to take control of your life. Learn all you can about the body so that you connect with the soul. Upon finding your soul, you will feel amazed at the mental changes that will occur, which helps you to discover self. Finally, practice meditation and other natural, healthy practices often.
An optimistic or hopeful attitude in life will not only facilitate you to become conscious of your inner self, it also helps you to produce positive vibes that others around you will notice, which in turn facilitates you to live a healthier life with a prohibited mind and body. When you advance self-control, you will also develop strength of mind and character, which makes it easier to resist temptations that attempt to make you fall on your face.

According to research conducted by Dr Larry Cahill of the University of California at Irvine, part of the limbic cortex of the brain, which is responsible for our emotional responses, is much larger in women than in men.
Add to that the fact that "guys have a smaller density of neurons in areas of the temporal lobe that deal with language processing" (scientists at McMaster University) and it's easy to see why they have such a hard time understanding the words coming out of a woman's mouth. (Hence the reason we have to be more direct with men if we ever want them to know what we're thinking or want.)
And just when you thought matters couldn't get any more complex, scientists have discovered that the male brain is actually his largest sex organ. In fact the part of his brain that is responsible for his sexual thoughts is physically twice as large as that in women, and contains twice as many of the cells that produce these sexually charged thoughts. Hence it's easy to see why women might feel they're not on par with their overtly sexually zealous male partner ...
Hence manslating - the translation of male words, behaviours and text messages - seems more vital to me than ever before.
Especially after the last runaway best-selling topic on this blog titled Manslations: the naked truth about men, I thought it necessary that we revisit the topic.
While many of you (mostly males) were wondering why indeed male behaviour needed a manslation dictionary in the first place, considering men claim that they usually say what they mean and don't speak in code at all, the women weren't so sure.
In fact, just the other night, a girlfriend received a text from a man she's dubbed The Player, inviting her to a late-night rendezvous. After she read it out aloud at the dinner table, the women immediately jumped in with translations of their own.
"Oooh, he is sooo into you!" one cooed.
"Yeah, I can't believe he's thinking of you right now! That definitely shows he likes you," concurred another.
Yet the men at the table weren't so sure.
One gent, who was particularly familiar with this sort of game-playing, explained it like this:
"I do this all the time. I'll text four or five girls when I'm drunk late at night and see which ones are available. Then I'll probably pass out, wake up the next day and find four or five text messages back. Then I'll have a shower and realise that one of the women I sent a text to didn't actually reply. And then I'll start to fantasise about her, and maybe even call her. It's the cat and mouse game - I'll want the one who wasn't so easy to get. But if she makes it super hard to get her, then I'll just move on. Sometimes it's just too difficult to get it on with one woman so I'll just settle for another."
Oh, and he was being dead serious, by the way.
What I've found most surprising is that, when it comes to manslating, men are eager to jump in to help out, as long as it's not in relation to their own behaviour.
Hence, when reader Optimiss received two confusing texts from a bloke, which had her mightily flummoxed, she enlisted the blokes to help her out with a little manslation.
The first text read this, "Here's my number in case you need it one day."
The second said something equally as non-committal: "Hey, how's it going - what do you have coming up ... anything exciting?"
When she asked if any men cared to proffer up a manslation, many eager blokes jumped into the ring.
One man wrote this: "Manslation 1: 'Booty call me sometime', Manslation 2: 'I want to know if you're available.'
Another reckoned a more accurate translation would be this: "Manslation #1 - 'I like you but am so insecure that I don't know if you would consider dating me, so here is my number that I want you to have, but just in case you think I am a tool, you might also interpret this as me just being friendly so I don't lose too much face.'
And Manslation #2: 'Still here, still insecure, and want to ask you out, but once again, in case you think I am a total tool, just wondering if you are out there having fun and maybe we could meet up, that is of course unless you think I am a tool, in which case I was just making conversation so get over yourself OK.' "
A third offered this advice to Optimiss; "Why don't you reply this: 'Hate to waste a good number when I get one. Where are you taking me on Friday night?' Then let him ask you out. If no reply, then he WAS a tool!"
By author Jeff Mac's reckoning, manslating is pretty easy to do, if you follow his cardinal rule that men contact you for two things: they either want to sleep with you, or they want to see you more, or they want to do both.
Hence, with every encounter, text, Facebook message or Twitter shout-out, he writes in his book titled "Manslations: Decoding The Secret Language Of Men" that women should be asking themselves two questions: "Is his behaviour designed to get me into bed? Or is it designed to spend more time with me?"
If they're not contacting you at all, they don't want either from you. And if a man doesn't even want to sleep with you, that should be a universal sign he's not interested. End of story."
When I enlightened my girlfriend about this little factoid, a light seemed to go off inside her head.
"Ahuh! So if I text him back and he hasn't replied, he not only doesn't want to see me more, he doesn't even want to have sex with me. Which should mean that he doesn't like me, so I should stop all this worrying."
Indeed. Manslating mission complete.
What do you think?Have a fabulous weekend and happy dating!
