Monetizing your blog is tough: The line between making money off your readers and selling something you cannot fully vouch for is blurred. There’s nothing wrong with offering third-party ads or optin into some affiliate programs but in the end you rely on other people’s products, what kind of quality they provide, how their customer service handles your referrals and more.

A better way to monetize your blog is to create your own product, something you can frankly stick up for because you were the one who provide support. The tool I have just discovered seemed quite perfect for the purpose!
