Money-Generating Blogs

There are a number of opportunities that you can maximize to your own advantage when using blogs, to make money. What you need to do is find something that you are good at, and explore the opportunities available to you.

If you are a writer who enjoyed writing blog entries as a private user, you may want to exploit this area. From making your own website to starting off with from a free provider, you can get started in your own venture. All at your own pace.

Other bloggers find that they need to shift into a different subject to write about. That is not entirely necessary. It is actually more helpful if you find something that you can engage in for a long period of time. As your own boss, you should be able to motivate yourself to work on your blog. You do not want to find yourself quitting after a couple of months (or even worse, weeks), do you?

Getting Started

To get started, decide if you want to subscribe to a free blogging site or pay for your own domain. If you are unsure how to tackle this issue, it is usually best to start with a free blog. Although this means that you need to follow their standards, this allows you to do a sort of a dry-run. Once you have determined how much money you will be able to make and have the funds for it, you can already set up your own domain.

Once you set up your own website for blogging, you get more room to move. However this may mean that there are fewer templates to work with. Do not be scared, though. You’ll find that this gives you more opportunity to promote third-party affiliates, and get more money out of your blog.

Once you find a subject of your interest, figure out how many posts you will be able to write in a week. Usually, a blog post of about 250-500 words is good enough. You want your blog posts to be engaging, not boring. You will be doing yourself a favor as well, since you’ll be less exhausted and more engaged in writing for your site.

Now, Get Me Some Money!

Once you get the hang of writing, you will need to make your blog as known all over the internet as possible. Find products that you are interested in, and make a review of it. One way to do this is by Review Me. They will pay you to write a review of a product or a service. Of course the key here is to make reviews which are related to your blog’s subject.

Remember to be as coherent as possible when linking products or ad placements in your blog. The more specific your blog is, the more avid readers you will get. Most people will not click the ‘subscribe’ button, but will definitely browse through your blog. The more related your posts are, the more helpful it is to your readers—and to the advertisers in your blog.

What To Avoid When Blogging

Blogging is available to everyone, but only a few actually make money out of it. There are countless ways to do that, but there are also countless ways to fail. Reality check: just because you are your own boss does not mean that you can do whatever you want. Here are some things that you need to avoid when managing and earning money from your own blog.

Subjects That Are All Over The Place

A lot of writers prefer to brand their blog through posting about their own lives. This sounds great if you have one passion to which you dedicate your life to. It is, however, a bad idea if you focus on more than three aspects. A blog that “focuses” on food, travel, makeup, children, and parenting is too broad. It will only send off a confusing message to your readers.

Focus instead on two to three related topics. If you are a parent and would like to share things about raising your kids, the best ways to manage your time with family and work, then by all means do. A blog that talks about everything under the sun will not be able to target a certain customer base well. You want to gain readers who will hold on to your every word.

Irregular Posts

At any given time, there will be readers who will check your site for any new posts. Posting regularly will keep them loyal to your site. If they do not find anything new in your site, chances are they’ll stop checking even if you have already posted a new one.
Other potential readers who will pass by your blog will want to see a steady stream of new posts before they subscribe. You need to get them so engaged, that they will subscribe and hang on to every word you say.
Advertisers will also want new posts on your blog to make sure that their ad placements get enough publicity. Keeping one blog post for more than a week or two weeks will only make you look lazy and uncommitted.

Death By Run-On Sentences

No one wants to read a message so long, that it spans for more than a line and makes your eyes bleed but you can’t stop reading. See what I mean? No one will notice a link on your sentence if it is too long. No one will be able to process sentences that are too complex. So keep it short, informative and engaging.

If you are earning through a pay-per-click way, then you will want your reader to get engrossed enough in your thought that by the time the link appears, he will definitely click it. This is definitely a more effective way than just highlighting your links and seeing what happens. Since you already have loyal readers, you want to gain their trust. This way they will get convinced to click on ads and external links. You will earn more money by doing this.

To keep your blog effective, organize your thoughts. Not only will you gain more readers, but you will also get more advertisers as well.

That's a really nice summary. Thanks, Robert. I think the new Google changes will really reward people who actually write useful content that you can actually read and who build real traffic with followers. It's a welcome change if you ask me. Thanks for the advice.
