If you’re reading this it’s probably because you clicked here by accident (who reads these anyways?), but not necessarily.
I’m grateful for my readers, and even those who maybe just dropped in for the first time.
JonManna.com is my first attempt at a blog. I will use this blog to experiment with different strategies, designs, and ultimately, to learn the ropes and hopefully become a better [tent] blogger for the benefit of all mankind. Part of the strategy involves learning how to make some money off this blog, but always ensuring that the content is offered to you free of charge, all of the time.
It sounds like an oxymoron, but there are strategies that exist to help monetize a blog. In order to do so, here are a few methods that I will employ:
- All content across this blog may be used to promote products, services, and affiliate businesses that are relevant to my readers. I will not necessarily note the use of an affiliate link every time.
- I am willing to review products, services or businesses, but I will always give my honest opinion, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those products, services or businesses.
- Ads and banners will be placed in strategic places across this blog. These will always be of high interest to my readers and will either be approved or denied based on that condition.
Now that you know how I will experiment with monetizing my blog, it’s vital for you to understand that I will never exploit my readers. My goal is to build a relationship of trust, and as such, I will never promote or endorse any products or services that I myself don’t use or believe in. If I’m writing about it, it’s more than likely that I’ve fallen in love with it. In other words: if I love it, you’ll know.
I want to personally say thanks for your participation and for being patient with me as I grow as a blogger. If I make mistakes, I trust that you will hold me accountable, and that we can be mature enough to let the iron sharpen iron. Happy reading!
