After a year’s absence from this blog attending to other sites and business, I’ve come back to Lugnut22 to chronicle my online marketing & blogging efforts. As part of this, I have removed all of my paid and sponsored posts from this blog. Like many other bloggers, my site was hit last year by Google’s crackdown on sponsored-listings promoted by such companies as Pay Per Post, Sponsored Reviews, etc. and my Page Rank was removed and has stayed at 0 for the last 12 months. My hope in removing these posts is that my page ranking will return and my site’s content will once again become available to people interested in starting their adventure in making money online. I continue to think that sponsored posts remain a viable money-making opportunity for bloggers, I will just not be taking part in any organized effort as I had in the past.
In any event, this blog will continue to focus on the many opportunities available make money online, either through affiliate programs, Google and Yahoo ad placements, advertising networks, directories or classifieds, or even selling products in conjunction with a wholesale drop-shipper. I hope you’ll stay tuned.
