How To Set Up Adsense On Your WordPress Blog

I’ve been using Adsense on this blog on and off over the last year and a half. It’s been a hopefully not-too-intrusive way of gaining a small income to cover the costs of things like hosting, and the odd coffee along the way. I couldn’t exactly say it’s been a mad moneymaker, it’s definitely a slow burner, but it’s something that I can set up and leave it there to passively earn which is nice. However, last year, Google Adsense changed their set up and took away the Plugin which had made it so easy to install ads on my blog. I took them away, not knowing the best way to do it, but recently decided to take the plunge and go for it again. Here is how I got it sorted out in one night, and have been reaping the benefits ever since. So, how do you set up Adsense on a WordPress Blog without much technical knowledge?

How To Embed Hidden Pinnable Pictures into your Blog Posts

I’ve been working a lot on developing a style for my images on my blog over the last two years. And unfortunately, the long-form style which Pinterest adores doesn’t do it for me. So, what’s a girl to do? I wanted to make my posts as Pinnable as possible without compromising the way I liked them to look. How did I do it?
