I have never tried to monetize my blog. Purposely. In all honesty, there is a page on my blog where one can purchase prints of photographs I have taken, and it may soon be possible to purchase original Art, also by me, on another separate page, but these pages aren't "monetization", per se. These pages aren't generating income on a "per click" or "per view" basis.
I was never one who saw my blog as a potential source of income.
But times, and thinking, change.
And maybe I need to change - or SHOULD change.
What do YOU think? Should I, or no?
