I spotted this twitter image on 43 folders, it made me laugh. Blogging is a strange thing to do, trust me there is no money in it. I used to have adverts on this site. I think over the month I got about 3p, and this site last month received over 4000 visitors. I enjoyed playing with ad settings and learning how the process worked but the adverts where less than suitable, mostly advertising really tacky design services that went against the reason for the blog in the first place. This month about 40% of visitors had visited before and the rest came from search engine results. That has been the best thing that I have gotten from this, a very clear understanding of how google works and how powerful a unique term is. Secondly that it encourages me to keep a close eye on the technical and design marketplace, something that a lot of people lose after university. Finally I have received some lovely emails from visitors who live in Edinburgh inviting me to events and generally being appreciative for something they found through the site. For money...... no, it doesn't work that way.
