I achieved 200,000 pageviews for one of my blogs recently. You can view it here at sgfinancialfreedom.blogspot.com . It has been an achievement just to cross that mark considering that I started out really just blogging for fun and to document my thoughts down as a web record.
$$$ from Ads
Over the years, I have managed to earn money from Adsense as well as selling adspace on my sites even though I must admit that I have not been very active in doing the latter. Usually, I am approached by people who are advertisers.
No Time to Write Content
Content generation is really an issue. A big issue. Even for the blog that I mentioned above, I have not had much time to write. The number of new posts for the year 2011 was dismal at less than 100 posts. Other newer blogs have managed a far greater number of quality posts in 1 year compared to the few years that my site has been in existence.I also have to stop allowing guest posts of various content because I find that certain articles written by people hoping to put up a guest post on my site are just not suited for my readers. So I have had to rely quite a fair bit on my own content which is difficult considering that I do not have much time to write each day.
Still, I must say that I have managed well. And the adsense earnings are still coming in daily despite my apparent lack of action or activity.
