Is it worth it?

Hey folks, I am wondering if this blog is worth the time and effort I put into it… With my job I earn only little money and so I wanna get some extra cash out of my two blogs. And I am talking about around 100$ (for both blogs together) per month. That is not so much…

I kicked out the AD-links and established the infolinks. Right now I trying the different formats they offer. I don’t wanna have too much advertising on the page so I don’t use every format they are offering. The banner ads from different companies didn’t work, the income was ridiculous. Infolinks has improved over the last days, but still I’m not satisfied at all.

Some guys click on the amazon links on the right side. But according to the stats not one bought anything. That is sad. I mean I know that nearly everybody buys something from them from time to time. It costs you only some seconds to click on the link here and I get some money out of it. But it seems to be a big problem for many to help someone.

Right now I make 95% of the money from the youtube-channel. And I guess 90% of that money would come in without my blogs….

Of course I love the feedback (comments) to the videos. And sometime some folks even write an email with recommendations. That is cool and helps me to find new material and motivates me to go on with the blogs. But when I see how many views there are and how less feedback it returns… that can be frustrating too.

Right now I don’t know how this will develop, but I would like a little more support (comments, mails, use the amazon-links).

Now free of interrupting AD-links!

Well, with a lot of work I edited every single post. I deleted every single AD-link, embedded the youtube and dailymotion videos directly, corrected links, improved galleries and so on.

I hope you like the result and prefer it to the old “AD-link before content” model. AD-banner will follow the next days. If you have any comments, please let me know and use the comment function in this post (below).

Open Water Diver

Well now it’s official: I got my first brevet/dive card! I’m now a certified Open Water Diver…

Until now it was a very interesting experience (diving in pools and lakes)! And now I’m looking forward to dive into the real thing…. the ocean. On September 20th I will start my vacation in the mediterranean 😉

Hope to see a LOT of interesting things down there 🙂
