busy as a bee
I was very busy from past few weeks. I was able to make some more money with this blog and finally baught a nice domain "www.BlogHacker.net" and a decent hosting. I was spending most of my time working on my new blog. You can find detailed review of recently released Blogger.com Beta on it. I would be posting on both here and on BlogHacker in coming time. First I wanted to move this complete blog over to BlogHacker but that would have been hugh work without adding anything new, so I decided to drop the idea.
Do visit BlogHacker for Latest Blogger Tutorials, Templates and Tips. See you all there.

Making money, 1 dollar at a time
Finally I made my first purchase with my online earning.
Recently I sold couple of links on this free blog and got a total of $6.54 in my Paypal account (thanks to Paypal fee I could not make it to $7). I wanted to register a domain but since most of the sellers were asking for $6.95 or more I could not buy even after using those discount coupons :( . Anyway during the same time I made a bid on one catchy domain name and to my surprise I won the auction. Now I am a proud owner of 'www.cheatgeek.net'. Of course with just $2.5 left in my account I can't afford a hosting so right now I am using a free hosting, have uploaded a game cheats script(a free script) and adding cheats to the site. The site is not complete in anyway (call it beta if you like) since there is lot to be done there but I am working on it.
I know this is very small thing but I like to see it as one step closer to my goal of earning a living from this free blog, earning with zero investment(of course excluding my time), being a professional blogger and leaving my full-time job.Its a long journey ahead but I am very excited about it. If you wish to stay with me on this journey then you are most welcome to visit this blog anytime.

Adding Adsense Ads in Blogger blog post's body
If you are not sure what this little blogger hack do then take a minute to look at this gardening blog, you would get the picture.
Few months back I came across this cool hack which lets you put adsense ads in the body of your blogspot blog posts. Doing this not only gives you more flexibility with your ad placement but may also lead to higher CTR. So what are we waiting for, lets jump right into the good stuff.
Getting the ads in the body of your blogger posts needs your to change your blogspot template little bit. Please remember that depending on the template you have the code might be little different but the main idea would be same. I would advice you to copy your template code in your favorite text editor for easy searching.
First find the section in your template where you need to make changes - this section is usually labeled by following comment:
Now that you have found the section which needs to modify, next you have to find that single life which needs to be replaced by the code I would provide later in this article. This is usually the 4th or 5th line from the top of this section containing the tag <$BlogItemBody$>. Just search in the text editor if you can't find it. The line that needs to be replaced is
Once you have searched this line just replace it with the following code:
This is all you have to do. Now just save the template and republish your blog.
But you may wonder where exactly will your ads appear in the post. Well you can choose the exact location for you ads. Simply put the "<adsense>" tag (without quotes) in your post's body and the adsense ads would appear in its place. If you forget to put the tags for some post then the ad would appear at the top of the post.
That's it. Give it a try, put it on your blogs. Come back here and post a comment about your experience.

Can we make good money from free blogs? Answer is Yes!
This was my first blog in the blogosphere. I had no money to buy a domain of my own or paying hosting bills. So like most new guys I started a blog on blogger.com. My main aim was to write about the things I learn on the web, things that are related to blogosphere and webmasters. I joined Digitalpoint forum and started posting my doubts there. I learned a lot from fellow members. I implemented what I learned in my free blog, which was little difficult given the small amount of flexibility given by blogger. I kept on posting here whenever I got time and learning tricks of the trade at the same time.
With time I came to realize that many bloggers prefers a domain of their own to blogspot blogs. They said that it looks more professional. That it brings more respect. All these comments and suggestions gave me an idea. I decided to work on a project to make money from free blogs. I worked on this blog, learned many template hacks and searched the web for best tips and implemented them here. I decided that I won't spend a single dollar on the web. I decided that I would build my online business from this free blog. I kept posting and nothing much happened. After some time Google PR updates took place and my promoting strategy gave me a page rank of 4 for this blog. I was happy. very happy. Now my blog was more mature then when it started some four months back. I contacted some members on DP for link sale and one replied with a positive response. I sold by first link for 3 dollars. It was for one month. I was very happy! I got my first earning in my paypal account. I know this is very small but I am optimistic. This is just a beginning. I wish to make some more money just like this and spend that money to buy a domain of my own. And I wish to keep this blog with me and would show that we can make money out of nothing :)
Now the goal for this blog is clear. I wish to make it an example for all bloggers that we can earn even from free blogs. And to contribute to blogger.com I am going to make this blog the best resource site for blogspot templates, tips, and hacks. You can find latest news and best adsense optimizing tips for blogspot right here. BTW I am expecting my first adsense check in next few weeks :-)I am interested in buying some more domain names, maybe a music domain.
If you also believe that I can make big here without spending a penny from my pocket then keep visiting and I would keep you updated with all that's happenings around me
