Blogging - A Popular Way To Earn Money OnlineAND Have Fun!

If you have a broadband connection, are internet savvy, maintain or have maintained a blog or even if you just know how to string words together, blogging could be a great work at home idea for you.

Think about it – you don't need to have too much technical know-how, can be an expert in any field and still find a way to earn money online while you babysit your two year old or recover from an illness.

Since it doesn't involve moving around, you can just stay in bed and blog away your sudden-break-from-work woes and make some money to show for it!

But it's not for everyone....

So How Does Blogging Let Me Earn Money Online?

In a nutshell, you place adverts and/or links on your blog (though Google Adsense for example) which will be of interest to your visitors. When they click the adverts or links, you get paid - simple.

Let's say your blog is about losing weight. Google Adsense will place weight loss adverts on your blog and will pay you a small income for every advert clicked.

How much you earn with blogging depends on how much time you're able to dedicate to it, how well you're networked and your expected outcomes.

What Does Blogging Actually Involve?

Here are two main ways to earn money online from blogging:

1. Option 1 is to create a few specialist blogs about subjects you're interested in and write new blog posts every day or every few days. You may end up making good money online, but it can be time-consuming and involves channelling all your energy into a few blogs and making them popular in their niche.

So let's say you have one blog on dog training, one on auto parts, one on weight loss and another on sci-fi novels. You must not only be up to date with all the current information about your specific topics, but also manage to give your readers an extra something they don't get from other blogs in the same category. As mentioned before, it is fun but can be time-consuming! And it doesn't always end there.

Once you know you have something solid in your hands, you need to begin networking and promoting your blogs in every way possible using all kinds of social media tools and other networking sites. This may take a long time in itself. But once the blogs get popular, the profits can be high and many such bloggers survive purely on the revenue they generate from the ads alone.

It's best not to attempt this method unless you're absolutely sure of having some success with it (or simply want to blog for fun), but if you do get it right, it can be an excellent way to earn money online.

2. There is also the Pay-per-post method. This is less time-consuming and the income (though less) is guaranteed and stable so it can be a worthwhile work from home opportunity.

You start by setting up a bunch of niche blogs on your own domain or on free hosts like Blogger or Wordpress. You then maintain these blogs and work up their Google rank and Alexa rank (i.e. their popularity - see our high Alex rank on the left).

Once you're done with that, submit your blogs to a host of get-paid-to-blog sites such as Reviewme, Payperpost and Blogitive and tada. You start writing sponsored posts and make your money per post. It's simple - it doesn't matter how many visitors click on the blog page or advert or even how many people have viewed the blog. You write, you get paid. Easy!
