When I decided to change my blog plan from free to Personal and then at one point, I upgraded to Premium. When I saw that the two weren’t very different regarding what plug-ins you can use, I downgraded back to Personal. I don’t know a ton about ads and how they work. I need a lesson in that department, so if you have any tips that you can share, please do.
From what I heard, systems like Buy Me a Coffee and Patron work much better than Word ads. However, here is the issue the Personal and Premium plans don’t allow such plug-ins; they are permitted in the Business plan. Being that I haven’t made a cent since I started paying for my blog in 2019. I don’t feel it’s worth it for me to change plans for now.
I find it discouraging that you need to make $100 for ads to get paid. From the start and even now, I believe in the power of a community. The views and likes make way for an income but speak for myself; I get a boost when people enjoy what I write. I always believed that if we help each other as bloggers, we will have success and put blogging back on the map. Now, it’s time for you to enjoy what other people create and some them some love.
