These times offered us the chance to reinvent ourselves and think of doing our own gig, beside our regular work which in IT mostly moved remotely. And as I had problems accommodating myself working from home, I've decided to create a website addressing this need and all the information to make it better. And this way teleworking.io was born and all my hopes to developing it into a big site with good content, drive traffic and monetize it was like a startup.
I've found a good WordPress theme on the Internet, bought hosting and SSL certificates and deployed the new site in a short time. I've started with one posts at 1-2 days as I needed to do some research and tried to add also my own touch. Some of the subjects were derived from my own experiences teleworking and the tools that I've started to use to serve this purpose. I've gathered some content and expanded quite a bit the content from the site.
As anyone which is rushing to make money on their website, I've started to look for ways to monetize it. I've appeals for Google AdSense, but due to the Pandemic they've suspended reviewing new sites in their Ads programs. I've looked for others Ads programs, tried few and finally chose one which would transform my site into a semaphore. I was subscribing to traffic programs by trial or free and getting some traffic to the site. Some views were started to build up, but looking at the ads revenue I was barely making few cents a day. I thought to myself that I don't think this is the path to success.
I did an experiment and published one of my article to Hive. And in one or two days I got few dollars out of it. At that point it was clear that monetizing my website is not worth the time or maybe I don't know exactly to do the required marketing to make it rise somehow. From that point on I switched my attention to Hive. I've started learning about the communities, got into some photography ones in the beginning and was participating in some weekly contest making some small revenues, but much better than the site monetization.
The steps took me one day to LEO Finance and I've discovered the potential from here. As I've graduated Business Informatics I soon found out that it was the right place for me. A great community all around, topics I was interested and topics I good write about. And from that point on I just focused my energy here and in few months I made about $500 market value which probably with my site would take 1-2 years (even if that would be passive income the time to reach it would be a fight). And I've expanded my ways to contribute here and earn from different instruments on LEO Finance which is the perfect glove to continue to do so.
What do you say, did I do the right thing turn from a blogging site to LEO Finance? Do you think that there might be better monetization instruments out there for small websites compared to the crypto earned on LEO Finance? I would say no, but would like your opinions on this as well.
