Writing horriblecontent that looks like a bricks of wall.I didn’t even know which affiliate program worth the try to which is not.

Especially if you’replanning to monetize in the future.Downside To Early Blog Monetizing.Mostly, the negative effect of early monetizing of blog comes down to two keyelement. You either get frustrated and quit half way or you will never become abetter blogger.Wait, don’t start throwing stones at me, I know there are tens of hundred ofthousands blogs out there that build their blog upon affiliate program, self product orads placement at the very start of their blog.It may interest you to know that these are already established bloggers who havetested their weight and strength out with previous blogs and have discover anotherbetter way to skin a cat.For a new blogger, it will have a negative impact on him. Making money from blog isone of the most easiest and the hardest thing I have ever came across. Easier, ifyou have been there and know how, hardest if you’re just stepping into the gameand still testing the sea to see how deep it is.So, is better for a new blogger who is determined to build a successful blogovertime to keep away from blog monetizing from day #1 and focus on how to starta successful blog from scratch.There are more than a million tips and tutorials in blogging, though with no absoluteor concrete rule, but there are certain rules of thumbs to abide with and followstrictly, if you desire to build a successful blog.
