Five (FREE) WordPress Plugins To Monetize Your Blog

Girl sitting on the floor with a laptop raising his arms with a look of success

I’ve been a very naughty blogger recently. Not much consistency and definitely neglecting the GeeeksDoingStuff.com audience. Things have been crazy at work and between travel, new team members, getting married and the two bulldogs – this blog somehow got pushed aside. It’s not you, it’s me, I promise!

One of the projects I’ve been so busy on at work has been launching new technology for influencers. I recently wrote about why we built new technology here if you’re interested. If you’re not interested in the why, but more interested in the what, then the research I’ve been doing around ways to monetize your platforms and WordPress plugins available to bloggers, might also interest you too.

Being a WordPress blogger means we have access to all sorts of new technology, mostly for free too. WordPress plugins are by far my favourite things and there are tons to choose from – from tracking, to planning, visualizing and monetizing. All tools to help you do more as a blogger, without having to learn a single line of code. Isn’t technology grand? Many sites post about ways to Monetize your platforms, like

I decided to compile five of my favourite, most useful plugins into an infographic. If you’re a blogger, this content piece is for you. Please feel free to share!

The world’s smallest working drill

The world’s smallest working drill created has been created using a 3D printer. I’m not one for power tools normally but this is kind of incredible.

3D printers are on the top side of my favourite things invented this decade. Partly because the technology fascinates me and partly because IMAGINE PRINTING YOUR OWN ACTION FIGURES?

My #PerfectHome with Property24

If you know anything about me, you’ll know that my bulldogs are pretty much my entire life. I’m in the process of buying a new house, and let me tell you about my criteria for the perfect home. A garden for my children. My children being my bulldogs 😉 And I don’t just mean any garden. I mean a shady luxury garden with a big pool to keep them cool on summer days. With their life jackets on, of course.  

After searching for a long time, I finally found what I was after. And it was close to work too!

Screen Shot 2015-01-14 at 8.08.25 PM Needs a LOT of work but excited to announce my new home to the world! My only current issue is what to do with the toy shelves. Where will they go!? How will they fit!? They were built for a specific wall. Not the new wall. PANIC!

But then i remember. Miley needs a big pool so she can spend her summer days sipping milkshakes by the pool. Wearing her sweet life jacket. Basically, bringing all the boys to the yard.

To sum up, when I have to describe my perfect home, I can assure you that my pets come first. My first priority is a big space for them to enjoy. That’s outweighs the vegetable garden every time for me. Besides, they’d probably eat that up anyway.

But this post isn’t just about me. And my home.

How would you describe your perfect home? If you want to win some great accessories to complement it, tweet @Property24 describing your #PerfectHome.

Good luck!

Build a Lego vase this holiday #adultkid

If you have some time off this holiday you should use it wisely. Use it to build Lego and watch movies. Maybe play an Xbox game or build a puzzle. All the fun #adultkid stuff you don’t get to do during the year!

I found this on Pinterest. Thought i’d share with you lot 😉

Go have fun!

When i grow up i want to live in a Be@rbrick Themed House

I already buy all my ridiculous clothes from Asia, why not get a house there too? An architect firm in Thailand (called Onion) was tasked to design a Be@rbrick-themed house in Cha-Am Beach. Basically my dream house.

The house, which is owned by a pair of siblings who are huge Be@rbrick collectors, features a slick combination of modern architecture, clean surfaces and my all time favourite collectable figures – Be@rbrick Bears.

I would pay all the money in the world. ALL OF IT.
