Adsense Earnings Decline and Outsourcing Article Writing

My adsense earnings have been declining steadily over the past few weeks.

I have noticed it and quickly took action by writing more and also increasing the posting frequency. I guess my job hunt has taken a toll on my blogging efforts but I am still trying my best to keep up with blogging. It however can be difficult to produce unique and useful content all the time and I am deciding whether to outsource certain components of my blogs to some Indian firms which specialise in blog designs and article writing.

Content generation is actually the most time consuming aspect of blogging. Marketing also takes time but content generation must be the most tiring.

Should I or shouldn't I? I am not sure whether it will actually pay off in the long run to have other people write content for my sites but I guess the content can actually complement my original content and I could still write every now and then so that readers do not lose touch with me....

Passive Income From Blogs

It is possible to earn abit of passive income from blogging.

I have a blog which I have not worked much on for the past few months and it has been able to pull in a few dollars of passive income from adsense every month.

That is great considering that I do not have to do much work to earn that money.

I think that by writing content that is timeless, one will be able to create a blog that has informational value even after 10 years or 20 years. What is content that is timeless? It could be something that scholars or students or people will want to read up on even after 1 year or 2 years of writing.

Stuff like tabloid news are seldom timeless... For example, I believe there will be very little people searching for terms like BackStreet Boys or stuff nowadays. Today's tabloid news might not have any value 10 years down the road. Unless of course it is tabloid that is related to some big and famous star like Michael Jackson.

So write timeless content and your blog will be useful to readers for a long time.
