In the process of creating this blog and producing materials and templates for the posts, I had to go through a lot of readings related to blogging, monetizing, Adsense, HTML coding, template design, ad positioning, and what not. There were lots of tiring hours Googling to fetch the good reading materials among the haystack of so-so ones. Rather than just leave them stacked untouched in my folders, I thought it'll be better if I just put them up here as a Compilation of Useful Guides for others to have them handy.
