Make Money Blogging – In 7 Easy Steps

by Cade Arnel on October 2, 2011

Make Money BloggingAre you a newbie blogger wanting to make money blogging.

If you are, your definitely not alone.

I can completely understand that the concept of making money online is quite foreign to people who are new to the internet, its certainly was for me when I first started out.

The effort to understand and master the key concepts of blogging, and connecting the commercial potential of your chosen niche with the act of helping your readers with either information, products or services, can see you generate regular monthly income or better still a full-time online income .

So lets take a closer look at what blogging  is, and what some of the blog monetization options are available.

What is Blogging?

The simplest way to explain a ‘blog’ or a ‘weblog’ is that it is a form of an online diary with articles, post writings, images, web links and other entries made by the creator or ‘blogger’. It features diary-type commentary and maintains an ongoing chronicle of information.

The entries are generally displayed in reverse chronological sequence meaning the most recent update appears on top, while older ‘news’ or postings can be found by scrolling down the site.

Can You Make Money Blogging?

Make Money Blogging

While many people (without knowing even the basics of blogging) state that it is not possible to make money and generate an income by blogging, this is far from true – people can, and do make money blogging.

However, with the right knowledge, resources and patience, you can easily make money blogging and in time, generate monthly incomes from your blog.

A Step-By-Step Guide

The following step-by-step guide can be used as a general platform for blogging:

  • Select a niche and domain name
  • Research a potentially profitable niche or subject
  • Buy a domain name (your website) and host it
  • Set up your blog
  • Start writing articles/posts/providing insights and valuable information
  • Promote your website
  • Make money online!

This might sound very simple, but guess what – it is! Undertaking each of these steps in the correct way is sure to get you started up right, and in time, you will begin earning money from your blog. It might take some time for traffic to generate to your site and for your number of visitors to increase, so remember –patience & persistence is a virtue.

Online IncomeMultiples income streams

Blogging enables you to earn income in different ways. Therefore bloggers do not have to rely specifically on one aspect of their site. Many blogs generate income through multiple streams, such as:

No one has ever complained about making extra cash, and why not make it from the comfort and convenience of your own home? Multiple streams of income mean more money, which means more security and peace of mind. This might also allow you to take more chances, in terms of experimenting with new ideas on your blog.

So if you want to make money blogging, start now!

Have a most outstanding day,

Making money from blogging certainly takes time and patience but if you are sharing things you love, then it doesn’t seem like work. Newbies just have to remember its not going to happen overnight but with persistance, it will happen.
