There is literally a bazillion discussions online about methods to monetize your web property. Of course, it’s very important to have at least a monetization project with various possibilities.

Of course, I know that using Adsense ads on my pages is not going to turn this website into a cash-machine for the reason that I don’t have significant traffic to this blog (yet). I did put some Adsense ads because it was easy to setup and it lets my potential recurring visitors know that my pages will always be displaying ads. Hey, the man needs to eat after all… But for now, I prefer focusing on bringing value to my visitors by writing articles and posting fresh stuff regularly.
Obviously, as soon as I have time to do so, I will setup this blog to display targeted ads that I will pick myself. And when I’ll get enough traffic to my pages, I should be able to sell my advertising space directly to advertisers. But there is still some work ahead of me!
