WordPress Premium Research

Recently I came into a bunch of money!! At least for me.. I have 127$ which I could use to upgrade the site to 

*pause for dramatic effect*

Wow! I can’t believe you’re thinking about spending 100$ on a blog that isn’t even that popular, you say. I’m starting to think whoever you is, probably my smarter self, is right! I looked into what comes with it, and one of the biggest selling points is the ability to monetize your blog using WordAds. WordPress already automatically puts ads on your website, but with this you can earn a small share of the profit! 

AMAZING RIGHT?Maybe not, I was reading an article (here) where the writer said that they earned 4.28$ for 7, 639 views in a month. First of all, thats more than half of my blog’s views EVER which is a bit depressing.

But when we whip out the calculator we can see how much money I stand to earn. Easyish math, finding the unit rate for that it’s about 1,785 views per dollar. 
When I go to count my views for this year, lets see how much money I would have earned if I started at the creak of the new year. I have gotten 1,672 so far this year.

So I did this math, and I would stand to gain 1.06 USD if I had gotten it in January. But our stats are steadily going up. Should I take a risk and invest 100$ in this blog that I started for fun? Would the money be better used getting a screen recorder for my devices? Let me know in the comments please 😀

  1. Hi this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted
    to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
