Major Notes: Your Journal - Your Money

We're thrilled to announce the launch of Your Journal - Your Money, a joint program with Google AdSense that allows LiveJournal paid and permanent account holders around the world the chance to earn extra cash just by displaying ads on their journals.

If you have a paid or permanent account on LiveJournal, you can start earning some extra pocket money simply by doing what you love to do on LiveJournal, like writing, sharing photos, and catching up with friends! The more people who visit your journal, the more money you can earn. It's that simple. You’ll get to control where ads appear and whether you prefer text or image ads. You can even customize colors and choose different ad sizes and formats. LiveJournal is turning over 100% of net proceeds to you. (After Google takes their cut, the rest is yours.)

Here's how it works: If you sign up for Your Journal - Your Money, you'll see Google AdSense ads displayed on your own journal. You can opt-in if you want to see ads on other journals. As always, paid and permanent account holders who don't opt-in will not view ads on other LiveJournal pages.

Here's all you'll need to get started:
  • A paid account on LiveJournal: If you don't have one, click here (it costs from $19.95/year)

  • Next, click here to sign up for a Google AdSense account or to associate your existing AdSense account with your LiveJournal account

  • Complete the easy sign-up process and choose the type of ads you wish to display

  • Keep posting and start earning extra income now

That's it for this issue of LiveJournal Major Notes. We're really proud to be in partnership with Google. You can read more about it here. There are some other minor improvements in today's code release. You can read about it in lj_releases.

Thanks, again, for tuning in. Without you, there's no harmony.
