Money has not been the prime things that motivates or encourages me to blog. I’ve been blogging for nearly half an year with no response from readers or any revenue coming in.
But, I accept, Money makes the whole blogging thing fun and exiting. I’ve been writing on this topic since the start of this blog, but hadn’t updated any article under this category.
