Earn Money by Blogging, is that for everyone? Can you make money?

This is a straight forward question in everyone’s mind who all into blogging in recent times. Yes, blogging opened the space for all of us to write, share our views and opinions. But, there are few who are claiming that they earn good amount money by Blogging. Can we do that? Is that possible to turn our passionate skill into Income? If yes, how we can go about it? I tried to figure out answers for these questions to earn money through blogging. Explore your options to expose yourself into Money Blogging.

Define what you want:

Simple powerful thoughts, coupled with careful planning brings success. Of course, executing the plan is the key. First, think through what you want to achieve by Blogging. The self satisfaction of writing our views is the starting point. If you have plans to make money then choose the topics what people search, seek information using Internet. In general, people search something or other related to money, health, gadgets, education, tourist places etc. Do some research and find out your interests related to those topics, therefore you can write more and more articles on that.

Embark your place:

Appearance matters; choose the blogging platform, template carefully. Blogger and Wordpress gives good beginning for new bloggers. Spend sometime to build, tweak your blog template to suit your interest, compatibility and to give aesthetic looks to attract readers. Make sure your blog viewable in widely used browsers such as Chrome, IE and Firefox and enable the option to read in mobile version as well. Test and tweak the appearance more frequently in all these browsers to ensure good, error free appearance of your blog.

Content is the key: 

Blog content, I call it as the Juicer for your money through blogging. It matters a lot, after choosing your blog topics, create the content carefully. After completing the content read it multiple times, edit as applicable to bring best out of it. Publish such writings as a post under different headings in your blog frequently, and connect with fellow bloggers by enabling comments. If possible add suitable picture to your post, it will be an eye catcher for your blog visitors. Optimize your blog in leading search engines such as Google, yahoo, Bing etc. To write best content, you need to read a lot, keep your eyes open what is happening around the World related to your chosen topics.

Is that enough to earn money by blogging? Most of us think we are not lucky enough to earn money though we have a blog for long time. The reason is simple; the money through blogging is not a passive income, it’s an active income. You need to be active throughout the lifetime of your blog. These all basics, opening a blog in blogging platform, creating content, publishing a post, connecting with fellow bloggers, optimizing the blog through search engines. What makes the difference? It is “consistency”, we need to be consistent in these activities to keep our blog floating in the top of the search engine World. This is the key for earning money by blogging; this is the one which can bring us close to those few who earns money through their blog among the millions of the bloggers today.

We need to have lot of patience, perseverance, sustainability to keep doing the above said activities repeatedly such as writing, publishing frequent posts, connecting, networking, commenting fellow bloggers, optimizing search engines techniques for our blog. This will get our blog good visibility, bring lot of visitors, helps to gain good page rank such as Alexa, Google Page Rank, helps to establish wider social network like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Feed subscribers. This will be the first milestone in our goal to earn money by blogging

Yes, there are lot of efforts required to reach this first milestone, hence we can move forward making our blog earning money. I have listed out some of the approach at high level to earn money after crossing this first milestone.
  • Google Adsense (Advertising)
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Paid posts
  • Banner Ads
  • Selling Products and Services
I will be writing in detail about these options in my next posts with appropriate link for further readings, Affiliate Marketing and Paid Posts aggregators' links for you to explore the options after crossing the first milestone. Looking forward your comments...

Just like with trying to sell my crafts online, I am too lazy to try to make money on my blog. I enjoy the internet as entertainment. If it becomes work, I won't do it. lol

Nancy Chan said...

Very interesting topic. Thank you for sharing with us. Have a great weekend!

Olga Hebert said...

Interesting. I really do not blog for anything than more than personal expression, and never even considered it as a way to make money--but I will be interested in what you are going to write on the subject.

Julia said...

Some blog followers said they stop trying making money on their blogs because they made so little it wasn't worth it.

I started making money and then Adsense cut me off. Beyond that I haven't really tried, like JoJo, I enjoy blogging for entertainment.

I stopped trying for dough at my show

Debbie said...

interesting stuff. my blog is my diary, i have never attempted to have advertising on it. i have been approached via email my a few people who wanted to advertise. i just replied, no thank you. i would think you would need heavy blog traffic for advertising to pay off.

i also like the uncluttered look better, the ads, for me, are distracting!!!

Christine said...

interesting post, who can't use extra money?

I have another blog, that is not "personal" like Morning Coffee and I did make $100 on google ads. It tooks me a few years but then I have slacked off in blogging on that particular one. I keep saying, I must go back to it and see if I can "RETIRE" off that blog. Ha ha. I'd starve to death. It was fun though.

Hello, thanks for sharing. I created my blog just for fun and would never want to make money from blogging. I just enjoy nature and simple pleasures. Seeing ads to me is distracting. I have on a few occasions added a post on a subject I believe in, like Saving our National Parks. I do not get paid to do this though.
Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!

Some people are truly successful at making money from their blogs, but it is not something I have any interest in. It sounds too much like work. I enjoy the interaction with people too much to turn it into a job.

I make some money through AdSense, but it's really nothing to write home about. Some bloggers get really lucky, and get advertisers to pay them to advertise on their blog. Those are mostly for home-improvement blogs, and sometimes fashion blogs.

This is all good to know and I know some bloggers do very well and bringing in some income. That is not my intent. I've been blogging a long time and just enjoy sharing my home, projects and life with my readers. If I HAD to do things to make money, I don't think I would enjoy blogging as much. I have to admit, most of the ads on the blogs are really distracting and I seem to read those blogs less and less.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Google ads bring monies only to bigger sites. I do earn some from them, but it is a very modest amount and my blog is one of the better visited ones

Valerie-Jael said...

I can understand when people want to earn money, but I am trying to keep my blog ad-free and non commercial. Just for fun! Valerie
