On the other hand: the main reason of bankruptcy for small businesses is bad financial management. Simply said: to forget to make invoices, not checking the payments and not following bad payers. 1 out of 3 is going bankrupt for this reason alone. I had to learn it myself. I spend at least 10% of my time with financial stuff. I don’t love it but the bills get payed 😉

Thanks for this post. I too have been thinking about this whole affiliate marketing idea and wondering whether it would put off my readers. I want to give my readers honest and neutral advice (I write a math blog) but there are genuinely some products which I feel I can recommend, so why not make some money if I’m going to recommend them anyway. The only problem is making sure that I can be truly neutral and be as enthusiastic about products I like which don’t have an affiliate scheme.
Nice point 9 was new to me and point 13 is something I think I need to take up. Thanks a lot, looking into reviewAZON but the features aren’t well described on their site… It looks good from what you’ve said on your site though.

In August of 2011, I started my personal finance blog with the hopes of teaching people how to save money after reading a magazine that featured a personal finance website in one of their articles. Due to that website, I became extremely interested in personal finance blogs, and my interest in blogging just grew from there. Before August of 2011, I didn’t even know that blogs existed. I didn’t know what they were, I didn’t know that they could make money, or anything like that.

Some kind of video recorder. Again, this doesn’t need to be anything crazy! A simple webcam or your phone will do just fine. For many of my videos I’ve used a cheap $300 camera, my iPhone, and the built in camera on my MacBook. All have worked just fine.
