I have been pondering this, since I don’t think I can go back to working 9-5 which is more like 8-8 pm at least in a Corporate job in Singapore. I also realized that my true love is writing and not paper pushing.
I am still nervous about migrating the blog so I approached WordPress about sharing the ad revenue. They instructed me to sign up for Google’s Adsense and Skimlinks. Google has sent me a rejection (sob!) as they say I don’t own the domain. Meanwhile Skimlinks just approved me (yay!), but now I need to figure out how to set up a PayPal account.
I am such a worrier and wonder if
1. My bank account is secure if I link it to Pay Pal
2. Whether readers will be annoyed by ads in an ad free personal blog
3. If I finally do decide to migrate my blog, what if everything disappears – all 1407 posts (but there’s now the option of an upgrade with the help of WordPress, but it’s still all a bit confusing. Not sure if I then have to purchase the domain first)
Just wanted to share my thoughts with you.
