Sometime last year I ran across a blog call JohnChow.com, the blog of an internet marketing guru. Most of his posts talk about how to ”make money online” through google ads, text links, and many other affiliate sites.

Some people say that his blog is unrealistic because most of the money making tips would only work for a high traffic site like his. And that his $8,000 a month income from it would never happen to 99.9% of the blogs that try it too.

Well that got me thinking. Why not try some of John’s tips on this blog and see what a real “personal” blog can make. At the end of this month I am going to see how much money I pull in from Talkshoe, Adsense, text-link-ads, affiliate sales, and Kontera. I think I am going to make more this time then I have in the past, when I tried to monetize my blog. But I don’t think it’s going to be anything to get excited about either.

I first big step to see if this will work is writing this post about JohnChow.com. By writing this I will be linked on his front page. That will hopefully send some much need traffic my way. If you would like to get a boost in traffic too just write a review and read this.

UPDATE: So far I have only maded $12 but that mostly from talkshoe.com. It seems my podcast are more popular then my blog.
