Monetize Your Blog: Everything You Should Know 

Create an outstanding blog first

When you create your blog, you need to make sure that it is appealing and functional. Before you start, you might want to read a WordPress guide to get all the information you will need. I found an engaging guide online, and you can check it out here. Once you know the ground rules, you can begin to create a site that your audience will love. I can't stress how important this step is. You need to be something of a perfectionist if you want to get things on track.

Optimize your posts

Are your posts SEO friendly? If you never optimize your posts, you will have an issue with your Google rank. Remember, if you want to make some profits, you need to have a high rank on Google. Otherwise, no one will take your site seriously. You should learn some of the core SEO rules so that your posts are excellent. Once you start to educate yourself in this area, you will see that it is easier than you first imagine it to be.

Consider sponsored posts

Do you want to get some sponsored posts on your site? It may surprise you to learn that some PR agencies will pay you to put posts on your blog. If you want to get a sustainable income, this idea is a great one for you. These posts will likely advertise a product or service. You will need to write about this thing and publish it on your site. That way, you can encourage your readership to buy particular products online. Your influence is invaluable to companies - remember that.

Use Google Ads for profit

Another option is to use Google Ads so that you can get some cash. These adverts are PPC. That means that when someone clicks on the advert, you make a particular amount of money. Be aware that the amount might not be all the much. In the long run, though, you should find that all those little clicks add up. When you learn a little about pay per click advertising, you will see that it's an easy way to get an income.

Think like an entrepreneur

Finally, you need to think like an entrepreneur. If you want to make decent profits, you need to be business-minded from the offset. That means that you should always look for new business opportunities. Once you start doing that, nothing will stop you getting what you want.

Create and run an Android Virtual Device on PC or laptop

Leave a Comment
Normally bloggers are programmers and IT experts, so they have to test their developed programs in PC or laptop. You might be itching to run some code, but first you must have something that can run an Android program: either an Android device (a phone, a tablet, an Android-enabled toaster — whatever) or a virtual device. An Android Virtual Device (AVD) is a test bed for Android code on the development computer.

The Android SDK comes with its own emulator — a program that behaves like a phone or a tablet but runs on the development computer. The emulator translates Android code into code that the development computer can execute. But the emulator doesn’t display a particular phone or tablet device on the screen.

The emulator doesn’t know what kind of device you want to display. Do you want a camera phone with 800-x-480-pixel resolution, or have you opted for a tablet device with its own built-in accelerometer and gyroscope? All these choices belong to a particular AVD. An AVD is simply a bunch of settings, telling the emulator all the details about the device to be emulated.

Before you can run Android apps on your computer, you must first create at least one AVD. In fact, you can create several AVDs and use one of them to run a particular Android app.

To create an AVD, follow these steps:

1. In the Eclipse main menu, choose Window→Android Virtual Device Manager.

The Android Virtual Device Manager window opens.

2. In the Android Virtual Device Manager window, click New, as shown in the figure.

The Create New Android Virtual Device (AVD) window opens. That’s nice!

3. In the AVD Name field, type a new name for the virtual device.

You can name your device My Sweet Petunia, but in the figure, the device is named Nexus7_Android4.2. The name serves as a reminder of this device’s capabilities.

4. In the Device drop-down menu, select a device type.

In this figure, Nexus 7 (7.27″, 800 x 1280: tvdpi) is selected.

5. Determine the kind of secure digital (SD) card your device has.

In the figure, an SD card with a modest 1000 MiB, which is roughly 1 gigabyte, is selected. Alternatively, you could select the File radio button and specify the name of a file on your hard drive. That file would be storing information as though it were a real SD card on a real device.

6. Leave the other choices at their defaults (or don’t, if you don’t want to) and click the Create AVD button.

The computer returns you to the Android Virtual Device Manager window, where you see a brand-new AVD in the list, as shown in the figure.

And that does it! You’re ready to run your first Android app.
