I have two goals in blogging. One is to have fun and find an outlet for my creative expressions. House Hubbie's Home Cookin' is a great way to do this. I have another blog that is connected to the small church in Toms River, NJ that I pastor that serves a similar purpose. As a stay at home Dad with two kids in college, the second purpose is to generate additional streams of income by writing and blogging. I have been trying to figure out how to "monetize" my blog and there are all kinds of helps on the web.
I recently found a blog entitled called "Free Advertising Suggestions". It is written by a guys who offers all kinds of suggestions freely from the lessons he has learned in life. This guy mantains a couple of blogs in addition to this one and has learned some lessons about how to grow his blog. I found this post entitled, "Blog Presentation Tips" particularly helpful. If you are interested in growing you blog readership, I would suggest that you it out.
