    My blog has been getting pretty good traffic, excellent reviews, have passionate visitors and over 2,000 views in about 6 months. First website ever, totally new to this...Haven't done any paid advertising yet, I even have that google certificate in which I haven't used yet.

    Appreciate any suggestions/advice!

    There are entire books and websites dedicated to answering your questions. I'll try to be brief and concise on my feedback.

    - 2000 views in 6 months is very low. It would be a challenge to earn an income based on that.

    - Advertising does not always equate to more visitors.

    - More visitors do not always equate to more conversions.

    - If using a Google coupon, please ensure that you do not go over the limit or else it would cost you.

    - What is your income strategy and what are your tactics? There are so many ways to earn money.

    - Paying for advertising does not need until you can answer the previous question.

    If monetizing is important to you, I would find a way to increase your number of visitors first. Generally, you'll need several hundred visitors per day at a minimum if you really want to earn an decent supplemental income.

    As Gabe mentioned though, there's tons of information about this. I would recommend that you look and see if there's a WordPress meetup group in your area and see if you can chat to anyone about this. This subject is quite dense and merits more than just a few words in the forum.

    Best of luck with your blog.
