    I am trying to make some money with my blog so I can buy a domain name. I went to widget bucks signed up and got the html. Then I put it into one of my widget text fields, I saved it. When I went to go look at the site it is just blank. I don't get it. Any help? :confused:

    A working URL would be good.

    I can't really pin out the problem because what you have is correct.

    Are you trying to place this in your sidebar?

    Yes

    Can you put HTML or code into the text fields on the sidebar?

    Yes, you can, if you have the latest version of wordpress. The issue that I see would be with the sizing of the images available through widget bucks.

    If you really want to ugly-fi your blog, then I'd recommend going with adsense in lieu of widget bucks.

    Ah, from further research, wordpress does not allow you to place ad banners for sites such as adsense on wordpress.com sites.

    Looks like your in a vicious cycle my friend, can't use adsense to make money because you don't host your own site, which you need money from adsense to host.

    So you can't afford $11 a month to get your own address and hosting?
