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!

On Topic/Off Topic

I am kind of at a loss for words.

That is a new sensation for me, I'll admit. But my priorities and how I spend my time has shifted since I started this blog so many years ago. It started as an outlet for my essays--something I still enjoy writing very much--then shifted to being about my scrapbooking and my classes for Stampin'Cat, and then to photography. Now that I do roller derby, things are shifting in my life again.

What would you like to read about? I know that niche blogs are more popular than blogs all over the place. I could do different sections like the Pioneer Woman, but only if people would like to read that

If you have read my blog for either a little or a long time, what do you like about it? What would you enjoy reading about? Leave a comment and chime in, otherwise Narcissism will RULE!
