How To Create A Blank Page In Blogger

Having the option to create a blank page is very useful when you're a blogger. For example, you may see the need to create an 'About me' or 'Contact me' page and do not want to write either of these as a lone blog post. Some blogging directories insist you have a 'subscribe' page, and many 'blog for payment' sites won't accept your blog on their lists unless you have a 'disclosure' which is easily found on your blog. 

No one wants to read a blog post written merely for the aforementioned, this is why the ability to create a page is so welcome. You can create up to ten stand-alone pages for your blog. Here's how you do it.

My First Google Adsense Cheque

Share |

I've been with Google Adsense for the past two years. Payment for ads placed on my blog and articles had always been something of a rumour. The elusive cheque was something big Bloggers talked about and promised to teach you, but never quite delivered. Earning pennies for all the hard work we bloggers put ourselves through can be quite depressing. We spend a lot of time on our sites, writing, devising and designing the best possible posts for our readers. This is why the news I'm about to reveal is so encouraging.

Last week I received an official-looking envelope with my name stamped on the front. As usual, these types of envelopes herald the arrival of bills - companies asking me for money. This one however, revealed a cheque from Google. It was only for $69.12, but a great start, nevertheless. This has finally made the promise (dream) of a Google payment a reality for me. Now I know from tangible experience that it can and does happen. This will propel me to drive myself harder to earn more as the months go by.

If you haven't already read this article, How to Monetize Adsense For Search on your blog, have a look at it and implement it on your blog to your advantage.

Here's to Google Adsense and lots of cheques in the future!
UPDATE: Now I receive cheques from Google every couple of months - each one bigger than the last. Thanks, Google!
