Blog Money Experiment

Posted By Darren Rowse 3rd of March 2005 Pro Blogging News 0 Comments

There is an interesting blog being developed over at the Blog Money Experiment where an anonymous blogger (referring to himself as ‘the blog experimenter’) is keeping a behind the scenes diary of his quest to earn a few dollars from their blogging.

They have started another blog which they refer to as ‘the money blog’ (which is at an undisclosed URL to guard from it being swamped by people from the behind the scenes blog) which they are doing the experiment on. Hmmm – sounds more complicated than it is but it will be an interesting experiment to follow. ‘The Blog Experimenter’ writes:

‘Can an online amateur make money with a blog? This is the online diary of one guy’s attempt to generate extra cash by blogging. Follow, advise and criticize a newbie as he tracks his “blogging for bucks” adventures, step by step. This is not “the money blog,” it’s the behind-the-scenes story…’

He’s set himself some guidelines for the experiment and has already earned enough for a coke. Good luck ‘the blog experimenter’ (I can imagine him sitting in front of his computer with a phantom of the opera type mask blogging away….can’t you?).

  2. Sounds like blog experiments are becoming common. I’ve been testing the abilities of RSS aggregation and Google’s News Alerts to build a website with no human intervention. It’s similar to the asbestos blog, but it’s focused on the stock market.
    I’m trying to find out whether search engines will ever give me credit for having a ridiculously vast collection of excerpts and links but no original content.
    I still don’t know if it will work out.
