Blogging for Money: The Basics

            Blogging for money is one of the many ways that work at home parents can make money at home. There are numerous ways to make money blogging, including creating sponsored blog posts, charging for subscriptions and using ads on the site to turn reader traffic into online earnings. Generally, the more traffic a blog has, the more money it is possible to make.

Blogging for money requires regular posting in order to keep readers coming back and to keep the blog's page rank climbing. Enormously successful bloggers, such as Perez Hilton, earn millions of dollars a year by blogging. While that's not the norm, there are many people with lesser-known blogs who make a living through their blogs. Still, more bloggers earn money online as a side job in order to supplement income or to pay down their existing debt.

Writing Paid Posts

One of the ways that bloggers are blogging for money is by signing up for sponsored posts that are paid on an individual post basis. These are usually run through third-party sites that connect bloggers with companies that want to advertise through blog posts on a wide range of blogs. Some of these posts are reviews of products or services. Some of them are simply informative posts that tell readers about a product in order to get the word out.

Each paid posting company has different rules for bloggers who want to earn money online. Some require the use of blog tools like embedded video or text links. Even without any specific blog tools, there are often rules about the type of blogs that are accepted and how old the blog needs to be before it is eligible for the sponsored posts.

Charging for Blog Subscriptions

            The Kindle is a handheld reader that reads digital books as well as newspapers and blog. Subscribers who want to read blogs on their readers, must pay a subscription fee to have Kindle access to the blog. Many bloggers are now offering their blogs on a subscription basis to Kindle readers and are making money each month for all of the subscriptions that are sold.
Selling Blog Advertising

            There are several different types of ad units that can be placed on a blog to put new and updated advertising on the blog. This type of advertising is changed out by the advertising company in order to reflect the most relevant ads. Most of these are pay-per-click ads that use the relevancy of the ads to get more clicks for the site owner. Each time the ads are clicked, you make money. The amount earned per click varies with the individual ads.

            It is also possible to sell individual ads in order to make money blogging. The ads can be sold through a third-party site that brokers blog advertising deals. Or, you may decide to simply place a blank ad to one side of the blog that tells readers how they can advertise on your blog. These ads usually offer steadier earnings because they are not dependent on ad clicks to generate revenue. 

4 Ways Blogger s Make Money

             Many blogger are not just hobbyists sharing their ideas on the internet. They're business owners making money online. It takes time to build up a blog to the point where you have enough readers to monetize it. Once you have a steady stream of unique visitors and high page views, you can make money the following ways.


             Blogger s who make a good living from blogging have done so thanks to selling ad space. The key is to build up your readership so that you're getting at least 500 unique visitors per day. Then, you can approach companies that want to reach your readers and ask them to advertise on your blog. You can earn anywhere from $500 a month to several thousands of dollars per month. Realistically though, you may not begin to start thinking about selling advertising until at least six months of posting. It takes a lot of consistency and diligence to get to where you can convince an advertiser to spend their dollars on your blog. You can expect to post at least twice daily for six months straight, writing quality content that keeps your readers coming back and wanting more.

Affiliate Commission

             Although you may not be able to sell ads yet, you can recommend products and earn an affiliate commission. You can build a blog around a particular topic and pitch related products, or you can build a blog that reaches a particular audience and pitch products that could benefit them. For example, you can blog about motherhood and recommend products that moms can use to help improve their lives. You would search the product's website to see if they have an affiliate program, or join Commission Junction or Clickbank to find products there to promote. You can earn anywhere from 4% to 50% of the gross sales depending on the product or service you recommend when your readers make a purchase. Even if they don't make an immediate purchase by clicking on the link you provide, you can still make money from this. If they do finally return to buy the product, you'll get credit the sale, because they bookmarked the site or it's saved in their browser.

Adsense and Sponsored Links

             The way you can potentially make money from day one (although it's highly unlikely) is by running Google Adsense or Yahoo! Sponsored Link on your blog just after you build it. If a reader clicks on an ad that is fed on your site, you'll receive a small portion of the revenue that Google and Yahoo! earn per ad back. This usually amounts to pennies per click, but it can build up over time. Don't plan to make big bucks from this method of monetizing your blog. You may not earn more than $25 for a whole year. This should only supplement the other ways to monetize your blog.

Selling Services and Products

             Another way that bloggers make money from day one is the offer your services on your blog. You can consult, teach, tutor, write or perform other services. Readers can pay you using Paypal, or you can set up a cart system on your blog. Some software developers have developed shopping cart plugins for WordPress that you can use for free. You can also sell products you've created, or become a reseller of products. You still need to generate traffic to your blog to get buyers, and the more you get, the more sales you'll generate.

             People are making money from blogging, but it takes a long time and a lot of effort. Unfortunately, some have promised riches to would-be bloggers, which has resulted in much frustration and disappointment. Make sure to plan other ways to make money on-line or off-line in addition to blogging.
