    Why do so many amateur bloggers not like to monetize their blogs,and high level yahoo answer people don't use it to promote their service or sell answers?

    IDK why people just want to do things for free without making money off it?

    I do a lot of things for free for people, without asking for money in return

    1. it helps you create a network (your only as good as your network)

    2. What you put out into the world you get back

    I know, such foolishness. I mean, doing something for fun and enjoyment? Preposterous, I say!

    I meant people that use wordpress without any ads,I don't get the point of having a blog if your not going to put ads on it.

    There are people who don't really need the adsense income from their blog and thus, don't want to litter it with third-party useless info (==ads). Become one too! :)
