Monetizing

Has anyone in the blogosphere had any success monetizing their blog? I tried Google ads before, but that was kind of a bust. I know that niche blogs are more successful for monetization, but I'm not yet sure what my niche is. I know that bloggers exist whose only job is blogging (Design Mom, Dooce, for example) but I don't know how to start breaking into that kind of market. I'm also not sure if I can afford to be a full-time blogger, as I have other demands on my time right now. Plus, while I think I'm awesome, whether or not I am awesome enough to ask for sponsorships remains to be seen. (*wink*)

Thoughts? Any help/suggestions/real-life experience appreciated!

Hi Dianne

I don't have any ideas for you, but I do have a question. I am making your magnetic advent calendar. The downloadable formatted squares are no longer working. Do you happen to still have that saved? If so, would you mind passing it to me? Thanks. I love this idea & made 6 of them for family & friends! You can reach me at angie.barta@gmail.com. Thanks again!
