Adventures in BlogJobbing – Fortified
Last January in 2016, wrote a post about an exciting social blogging community that I had joined. Just two days later, it became necessary to write a follow up post , clarifying. Some time during the course of the year, the monetary incentive which was the reason most people were publishing at the site was taken away. The owners said “suspended”. However, when I hear that word, it translates in my mind as “Finito! Gone forever!”
Nevertheless, I kept my blog - “ My Pain, Your Gain ” - at the site.
( Don't laugh. That's the name of my blog and it's the perfect name for my blog! )
Why did I not relocate?
- Well for one thing, the site owner didn't tell me that I had to go. In other words, just because they made a decision to discontinue their Points Reward Program , didn't mean that the site was shutting down and that the members had to find new homes for their content. So since I was not asked to leave, I stayed.
- As I said in my previous post, it's “a really nice site”. It uses the Wordpress publishing platform. Plus, the site owners did not remove ALL monetary incentives. If you have Google Ad Sense you can participate in the revenue-share plan (75/25, owner's favor); and affiliate links are allowed (you keep 100% of commissions earned). I can work with that!
Instead of deleting my blog, my friend talked me into publishing another blog. Now I have two blogs at BlogJob. (That's not impressive. My friend has 11 blogs!) Published my first post at My Shopping Channel in November 2016.
Already into the second quarter of 2017 and it has been a busy year! I'm lovin' it!
