Monetizing Wordpress Blog - Question
I made the jump from Blogger to Wordpress. It has been stressful only because the importation didn't go great and I am finding Wordpress to be hard to get used to.
I am trying to add either Chitika or Adsense. I can get neither to work. Go to my blog to see the current Chitika error (on sidebar). When I try Adsense a tan bar appears at the top but that's it. Nothing more.
I am going to Dashboard - appearance - widget - and adding the text widget and then pasting the code.
Anyone know why this isn't working???

As far as I know, Wordpress.com doesn't allow you to monetize at all (which is part of why I put my latest blog site there...I was always getting hung up on always asking myself "how can I monetize this?" and forgetting about the part where you have to create actual value. This forces me to concentrate on that side of the equation).
If you want to monetize, you'll have to get a hosting account from a service provider and install the blogging platform at Wordpress.org. Some hosts are good about making it easy to install (I personally use Bluehost...good price, and one-click Wordpress install). Then you've got a massive amount of control over your site. You can pretty much do anything you want with it.
It's confusing, because they're both called Wordpress, but it's the .org model you want.
Hope this helps.
