I am currently thinking of ways to sell out, or to be more precise to make money off a blog, this blog or any other. The problem is I do not know how to do it. I know that the best way to attract traffic is to blog about topics that can interest people or in which one has expertise. The only expertise I possess is in the field of not for profit accounting. Even if I do generate some traffic with exciting topics such as "The pros and cons of half year convention in depreciating assets" and "The schedule of functional expenses: truth or fiction?" what can I possibly advertise/sell in conjunction with this? Coffee? Or a device that every five minutes starts yelling, "Wake up, CPA! You are on active accounting duty!"
So far I am considering affiliate relationship with sites like Amazon. Which means I might be reviewing things I buy there. Which I do in real life, a lot. And I would never give falsely positive review for monetary gain. Unless it's huge, but what are the chances of that happening?
Sigh. I don't like combining business and pleasure, but in this instant business might actually push me to do more blogging, which I like, but somehow put on the back burner for many reasons.
Thoughts? Should I dedicate a separate blog to this? Or keep doing it here and scare one reader that still remains?
