    So, I decided to create a self-help blog like two months ago and I have to say that everything's running smoothly. Except that it's making me no money so far. Even though that's not my reason for my blog ( I genuinely love blogging about self-help for free) but I also want to make a living off it later on.

    Right now, I have two eBooks I made form scratch that are in the works and I was planning to release one for free and the other one for a small payment. I was just wondering what was the best eBook sites you found to host your eBooks for paid download?

    You could sell your ebook using clickbank.

    You should have plan how you are going to monetize before you work on it. If it's personal blog, why do you want to make money from it.

    I also think Clickbank would be your best option. I would upload your paid ebook to clickbank, and offer your free eBook as either a ethical bribe to build your email list and once someone opts in they are taken to the paid eBook (If closely related) or offer the paid eBook in your autoresponder follow up emails after they have opted in.

    Are the eBooks your own way of monetizing the site? Depending on how much traffic you're getting it might be worth throwing Adsense onto it. Make a little extra passive income

    You may also try Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing.

    Clickbank and Kindle are the most profitable sites to sell your ebook on. It can be hard to gain traction initially, but everything will pan out eventually if you market your ebook properly with persistence.

    Thanks everyone for the advice. How much do you think an original 15-30 page self-help ebook should cost? I'm new to this.
