Monetizing your teaching blog

WordAds… ah, go on then.

I didn’t want to make money from my blog. I had my reasons for that, which were basically…

  • I’ve always felt bad, kinda guilty about the idea.
  • My content is random and rambling – I couldn’t see it as a way to generate income. I’m surprised people read this stuff tbh.
  • I didn’t want money to change my content. As it stood, I wrote what I wanted, when I wanted. I was worried that monetizing might lead me towards more clickbait.
  • etc

What changed?

One million visitors!

This blog is about to reach a milestone. By, I guess, Friday it will have had 1 million visitors.

Thanks to my awesome PLN for all your support, comments, and interest! When Martin Sketchley persuaded me to start blogging a while ago I never imagined that…

  • people would read it!
  • trainee teachers would find it useful! So many awesome comments from CELTA/Dip trainees. It means a lot, cheers.
  • blogging would lead to professional writing! Trust me – publishers do read ELT blogs.
  • I would enjoy blogging!

What Kate and Kris did…

Happy New Year!

Attention! New blog! My mates in Bangkok have started this site to help people who want to teach English. They offer general advice, opinion and interviews with current teachers, to give an idea of what the job is like. Please like and share.

They interviewed me for the blog last month, click here to read it.

The blog was set up by Kate Lloyd, who is a regular ELT tweeter. Kate and I are working together on a presentation for Cambodia TESOL in Feb, so expect a post on that!
