Armchair BEA Beyond The Blog

Desing by Nina @ Nina Reads.
So, today's topic is Beyond your blog.

Well, well, beyond my blog is just.. lots of work. And no money from it :P Reading some post, I have some mixed feelings about this. I mean, in a way I think why would people pay me for my blog? On the other way I think, hell, I work at least a minimum of 2 hours a day on my blog, and sometimes it feels like work - work that I love doing! Would be cool to be paid for it :)

Ads and stuff like that. Well, I am a Book Depository affilate. It doesn't bring me any money, though. But I like being an affilate, because I can jump directly from my blog to the site of Book Depository. :)

The Google ads and some other ads.. I see the around and I think, good god, they are so ugly!! Couldn't people who make them, I dunno, do them more pretty?! That's why I've never even considered having them on my blog.

Well, the reason I decided to have a blog was initially to share my reports from my University. I thought it was a waste, that I worked so hard for them, and then it was just me and the professors who actually read them. And I also wanted to have some different opinions about various reports, and I dunno, share the experiences or stuff like that, from other students of Psychology. Or at least a "thank you", because I am the only student of psychology in Slovenia who actually share her reports online. I wrote that in the end of every post. My reports have been posted since a year now.

Do you how many people actually made a comment sharing their opinion or a simple thank you? ONE. It happened a month ago. I was in shock!! Wow. Really. There are still some moral and fair people in my country. - Becuase THIS is what I wanted for my "payment" - just someone thanking me for my help, because I damn well remember while I was making those reports. It was awful and complicated and annying and oh. Sometimes I think I should just close down all of them, but then I remember why I share them in the first place and I stop thinking about it. What it annoys me the most is, does these stupid psychology students from my country, not know how easily is to check statistics?! It's like they think I don't know how much time they spend on my blog. Or who, for the matter.

So yeah, my blog really doesn't gain any money. Thank god for the book bloggers community, which is the most supportive and awesome community ever! Thank you for all the comments, for all the sweet words that always cheer me up, and for the amazing support you show me every day! This is all the payment I've ever really wished for ;) You guys are awesome <3

So, any good tips for how to make a little money with your favourite pass time? :P ;) I hope you're enjoying aBEA! :) I know I am, because it's freaking awesome! See you at the Twitter party tonight!! :)
