Many new bloggers start off monetizing their blogs in really backwards ways, because an “expert” told them that display ads and affiliate links were the way to be successful and make money with a blog. They start by making $20 a month, then $30 a month, then maybe $100 a month, and they do this for months and months creeping up the ladder, wondering when this "big break" they were told about is going to happen.

But that is not the right way to approach monetizing your platform.
