Assalamualaikum dear readers and friends.
Let's talk a bit about blogging and making money.
You must have notice that KakChik's Wardrobe has advertisements from Nuffnang and Google Adsense. These 2 blog advertising company are known to be helping bloggers in generating money through blogging. FYI, Nuffnang is known and available in certain countries in Asia while Google Ads, well everyone already knows, right.
Right now I am not going to talk about Google Ads but Nuffnang.
Since late 2008, I've been reading lots of my friend's blog posts about making money with Nuffnang. As I was a curious type of person, I took the opportunity to make a research about it and read as much blog posts as I can.
The first thing is to get to know about the company. After I feel comfortable and confidence that putting it's codes in my blog is not haram and I am not helping any kind of haram adverts, I registered. Free of charge.
My sole purpose is to generate money as an allowance for my free sharing here. Even though I have section for advertisements but they are not always profitable. So I think why not? I just have to embed the codes at strategic places and let my blogging enthusiasm do the rest.
If people like what I wrote, they'll visit my blog and that definitely will help in increasing the income. It's not much but helpful. I have no intention of forcing people to visit this blog just for the sake of increasing the CPC (Cost Per Click) or CPM (Cost Per Impression). It's because I visit and read others' blog without force too. FORCE here means this type of statement:
"Salam. I've followed you, follow me back."After six months of blogging, I cashed out my earnings from Nuffnang. Alhamdulillah last week the cheque has arrived but I haven't have time to deposit it yet.
I borrowed my pic from Keluargaku Sayang.
All I can say is alhamdulillah and thank you for all of you who have been visiting, reading and clicking the advertisements. Those actions helped me generate some income for this blog. Actually the cheque is not solely from this blog. It is accumulated from all my 5 blogs that have Nuffnang adverts. Not much but helpful.
So far I'll stick to the 2 blog advertising companies. Hopefully they stay halal.
