There is a lot of crap websites out there telling you how to make money blogging and most are complete bullpucky. However Caroline Middlebook is one of the most honest make-money-blogging-sites I have some across.
Now I am pretty sure that most of the site I come across saying they make $100,000 (US) dollars a year are bull, but Caroline posts her earnings each month and the readership so this is great stat information for you to understand what it takes to earn a living on line, and who doesn’t dream of being able to blog from St Lucia each day.
The first take away is that adsense is not a strategy, is a distraction from doing what you need to do.
Afflitate income needs to be targeted such as blog hosting and WordPress themes, but the real cash cow is digital IP (intellectual property).
