If you don't read Shoemoney.com then I recommend that you start because this guy is the real deal when it to blogging and affiliate marketing. He shares a lot of wisdom about the do's and don'ts of building a successful online presence for yourself and blog. He has been online for over a decade and is very well respected by the online community. I have learned a lot by visiting his site and reading his posts and watching his videos. Here is a link to a video he has on his site about when is the right time to try and monetize your site. I would love to get some feedback on your thoughts after you watch it if you don't mind, thanks.
