This 'making money' includes, but is not limited to:
- Putting third-party ads on your blog (aside from the advertisement which is generated from your posting of the albums) - this includes Google Adsense and all similar programs, or even advertising companies which one has found themselves.
- Using filehosts which pay users for their files being downloaded (it just so happens that these tend to have a poor free service) - again, this includes, but is not limited to, Filesonic, Fileserve, Oron and Wupload. LinkBucks also falls under this category. I am fine with Rapidshare's scheme which allows you to get points towards premium membership with downloads. Some of the good filehosts I've found (best to worst) are Megaupload, Mediafire, Zippyshare, Hotfile, Rapidshare, and Depositfiles.
- Sponsored reviews, unless clearly labelled as such. This should be pretty self-explanatory.
- ASKING FOR PAYMENT FOR LINKS TO ALBUMS. This is simply disgusting.
- Requiring subscription to a paysite for downloads, and asking for people to use your referral code.
I will not name any blog in particular. You know who you are.
Comment on what you think of this, and tell me if there's anything I've missed off.
