piggy bankRunning a blog is a lot of work. This post serves as a partial reminder on why I spend so much time here. :)

Welcome to month 6 of Monetize Your Blog. If you’d like to see what I posted for previous months, view all the Monetize Your Blog posts.

I am attempting to keep track of the places from which I have earned money solely on Freebie Spot. With this information, you should be able to determine which programs work best and decide if you would like to work with these companies on your blog. Please keep in mind that I only post offers which are relevant to my blog or to my life personally. I will not post something just for the sake of making a buck. Ever.

June 2011 Report

Total for June 2011: $207.73 - Over $120 more than May – woohoo!


My little disclosure: I have tried not to leave anything out and have only excluded companies which may ban my account(s) for posting information (if you are one of these companies, simply email me and I will remove your link promptly). This is the lay-it-all-out honest truth which I have posted in the hopes of helping you make money on YOUR blog. Hopefully I can keep up with this and remember to post a new report each month. :)

    Am I missing something?  Maybe I didn’t read the answer in another post how do you set it up to receive money for your blog from the advertisers? Thanks

    • Mama-Jen says:

       @Chrissy T Hi Chrissy. For each place I’ve earned money from, I have provided the applicable link to the company. Some earnings are from telling my readers about special deals while others are from posting things like coupon alerts. Hope that helps!

    I have finally started my own blog (for figuring out Couponing at Walgreens with the associate/military discount). Thanks for all your advice, it has inspired me to blog and hopefully to earn some extra change from it.

    Can you use Bandcaster and We Use Coupons together? I just ask b/c I’m sure if I ask them it will be forever before I hear back and b/c I read something on Bandcaster when I signed up through your link about not being able to post other “coupon aggregators”… not sure what it means! lol

    Thanks again!

    • Jenny says:

      That is such great news Chrissy! I’m so happy (and flattered!) to know that I inspired you. :)

      You can use Brandcaster and WUC together. For example if you’re posting a Walgreens matchup and then a printable is available, you CAN link to your affiliate link. When I have used WUC, I copy/paste their matchup and give thanks (with a link back) to WUC at the end of the post.

      Hope that helps!
