Making Money with Blogs

Blogging is a fun way for people to spend a bit of time writing about things they are interested in discussing. Some people are happy to blog with no real concerns about making any money; they are satisfied with just having friends and family read their writing. Other people have higher aspirations for their blogging and some actually turn it into their profession. This might seem like a lofty goal, but these days more and more people are finding that making money through blogging is not so difficult.

Making Money with Blogs

How do people make money through blogging?

There are a variety of ways to make money through blogging and here are just a few possibilities;

  • Advertising on your blog page
  • Donations to your blog
  • Using your blog as a way to sell your products
  • Getting paid by businesses to say favorable things about their goods and services in your blog.
  • Writing blogs for other people

Tips for earning money on your blog:

  • Write about something that excites you and that you know a lot about. If you don’t know a lot about something but you have a lot of interest then you can use your blog to journal your attempts to become an expert. Never pretend to know about things you don’t because readers will sniff you out.
  • Make sure that you keep up to date with the information relating to your field of expertise. One way of doing this is by using something like Google Reader to constantly provide you with RSS feeds concerning your subject.
  • Update your blog regularly; successful bloggers will do this daily and most people should aim for at least once a week. This is for two reasons; if you don’t provide fresh content readers will lose interest in your site and lack of new content will also cause it to lose importance in the Google search engine rankings.
  • Learn about Search Engine Optimization. Even bloggers need to know how to writer their articles in such a way so that they perform well on search engines.
  • Converse with other bloggers and get them to link to your blog. Join web forums and use social media like Twitter and Facebook to drive traffic to your blog. Encourage everyone you meet to read your blog.

Check your blog posts for spelling and grammar. If your writing seems to amateurish it will mean that most readers won’t stay around or long; unless your writing is so bad that it is entertaining.
