Which is the best platform for monetizing a free blog? Blogger? Wordpress? Others?


I am thinking about serializing my novel from NaNoWriMO and giving it it's own blog. Then I'd like to earn some pennies for my effort. What's the latest on monetizing blog platforms?

    Thanks, all for the serious and savvy answers to my question. I will look at Hub Pages and Blogger. I just wish I could get a better ad firm than Google! My goal is to publicize my novel series with a little serialization.

    Excellent! I linked my blogger blog (in an earlier comment) to Google +. I will spend time this weekend exploring some of those options.

    The Amazon one sounds pretty good. They have better stuff to sell than Google adsense sells. I'll check that one out. I put it up at Blogger and it looks great, but I will move it to a happier place when I find one.

    This was my first time, Emilyfed and it was a big disappointment. The deadline for the 50,000 words is tomorrow. We just uploaded the novel and they counted the words. We could put a preview and a cover and that was it! The actual book did not go up

    I'm already published at Amazon and will expand to others when I get my third novel done. With 3, I will feel more secure.

    Yes, these are the same reasons I like Blogger. It's relatively versatile and easy to use.
