RSS Explained

What is RSS exactly? I'm glad you asked. Some people may even be making up their own meanings for the acronym like "Raunchy Silly Stuff" or "Radically Strange Site" or "Real Smooth & Slick" (just like the Monetizer)..While it could stand for any of those, RSS here and in the blogosphere refers to "Really Simple Syndication". RSS provides an easy way for people to stay informed when a blog or website has updated with new entries or material. It's a way for a blogger to provide a "What's New" on my blog to their faithful readers. It's easier for the reader than the traditional method of bookmarking a site and returning to it over and over and over again to see if it has a new entry or update.

<-- You most likely have seen the RSS icon displayed on blogs, or up in the address bar of your web browser at certain blogs/sites. If you see that symbol or a variation of it, it means you can subscribe to their blog or site's RSS feed and stay updated as the site does.

RSS feeds are organized and read by software known as a "feed reader" which displays the latest blog entries quite nicely for you to peruse. The feed reader will show the latest 5, 10, 25 maybe even 100 entries from the blog you're subscribed to, listed in a nice, neat fashion. Popular feed readers include Google Reader, Yahoo and Bloglines. They are all free to use which is even better.

The gist of all this, is RSS makes it easy for you to subscribe to someone's blog, and always stay informed as that blog updates with new entries. You can subscribe to the feeds from all your favorite blogs you read and have them stored in one, easy and convenient spot to check. And of course should you not want to mess with a feed reader, the other easy option is to sign up for email updates. Every day the blog has new updated entries, you'll receive an email in your box. That Email will show you the day's fresh new entries for the blog you're subscribed to.

Now that you know all this, here's your two options for The Monetizer Feed:

Subscribe to The Monetizer RSS feed


Subscribe to Monetizer Email Updates

The Monetizer: Motivational Speech 101

So you want to make money online? Well it's not so easy...at first..You'll come across person after person out there claiming they have the answer to "easy money" online, but there is no real expert in the matter. Making money takes work, determination and research to get things going in the right direction. Anyone saying they are an expert in it is lying, because in reality nobody is an expert..they just might know more than the average person.

However, the internet does facilitate things these days. Most importantly is the ability to learn for free, and then translate that knowledge into extra money. You can research almost anything these days online, and all you pay is your monthly internet service charges. It's almost better than having a library card. On the net you can learn ways to design websites, get them noticed, and yes even make spare money. Some dotcom moguls even claim to make six figure salaries, just by doing online work. There's people out there trading internet real estate and making more money than some do in actual real estate. There's people launching ebay and cafepress clothing stores online and doing it as a fulltime job. The internet simply can't be overlooked these days if you've got a startup small business, it just makes sense as a fast, and easy, and yes cheap way to get exposure and promotion.

So who am I? The Monetizer. I will try to guide you to various ideas as to how to get started in making money online. As I previously mentioned, there are no easy routes to doing so, but there are some great starting points and free services around. Through this blog, you'll learn of all sorts of things going on online you may have never realized. People dreaming big, starting up new sites and ventures just to make money...so buckle up, this will be a wild ride.
