This website, www.pinayinvestor.com, will celebrate its first anniversary next month. However, it was only in April of this year when I started posting ads on this site. At first, I didn’t want to run ads because my goal was only to share my learning experiences in investing and the seminars that I’ve attended. I didn’t have plans of monetizing this blog because I actually had no idea how to go about it and I wasn’t comfortable seeing ads on my site.
After I attended the Love the Leap Program by Ginger Arboleda, who’s now my boss at Manila Workshops, I realized that I wasn’t only sharing my stories, but I was also giving value to my readers. Monetizing my blog became one of my goals this year and running ads on my site was one of the strategies that I’ve thought of.
