Can a random blog make money?

I have been inspired by a Pinch of Yum to see if my rambling, random blog can actually make money.

You see, they decided to see if a food blog can bring in the money.

But I am wondering if my, to borrow from Seinfeld, “blog about nothing” can accomplish the same results.

Probably not.

Or probably not on the same level of results to be honest.

But, hey, all I am shooting for here is $500 – $1000 month.

Let’s be real.

That amount of money would make a decent impact on most people’s lives in this economy.

So, in the efforts of research (and money), I have decided to set myself up as a case study.

Which is very difficult for me, the Queen of Procrastination.

Now, this blog is not exactly starting from scratch.

I already have:

1 Subscriber

1061 Twitter

104 Facebook

127 Pinterest

5 Google Plus

3 Tumblr

1 Instagram

2 Linkwithin

As well as accounts on StumbleUpon, Triberr, and probably a whole host of other minor social networking sites.

But, as you can see, the numbers aren’t staggering and they certainly do not reflect in high traffic or high conversion into clicks.

In fact, lifetime income on this blog has been rather dismal.

Project Wonderful

Commission Junction

In fact, I have been delisted from Project Wonderful and Commission Junction because of my low traffic numbers.

I also have accounts on most of the popular pay per post sites but I rarely do them because I only like to recommend products that I really use or really want and Google tends to frown on the use of them.

So what is my goal for the month of May.

I just want to add 100 to each of those totals.

In other words, I want 100 new subscribers, 100 new Twitter followers, 100 new Facebook subscribers, etc., etc., etc.

I have decided, for the time being, to focus my income goals on Adsense and Amazon.

Their minimum payout is $100 so they fit right into my goal of 100 increase.

Yeah, I am deliberately keeping my goals modest so I can shine when I meet or exceed them.

Yay, Me! in advance.

So, see you all on June 1st.

And if you haven’t already done so be sure to support me in my goals by following me on my social networks.
