I really do wonder at times, if I am doing the right thing.
I have been writing on HubPages and several Blogger Blogs for several years. My No.2 goal has always been to make a little money with my writings, and these sites do provide some i come for me.
With WordPress.com though, sales and profits are not a primary attribute for writers. It seems that you need to go over to the WordPress.org side and set yourself up for any money-making you may want to go after.
So, I have spent many hours over the past couple of months evaluating WP and my potential future using WP. My original goal was to drive traffic with my WP site to my HP and Blogger sites. This way, I could expect some increase in readership and consequently income.
Has it worked? Well. if you have ever started a new Blog or web-site, you know that results take time. Honestly, I think I am on the right track, but I do wonder, at times.
I feel, at this time that I maybe should slide over to the WP.org side and generate a REAL store of my own and experiment with the world of online sales and money-making.
If I do go there, I will be like a blind man in a candy store. Flailing my way through customized tools and HTML Code until I have set up a good commercial site.
