Blogging Explained

Everyone blog nowadays. Some people blog about how they spent their days going into details on how they did something etc. Some people blog about their work. Some people blog about places of interest. Some people blog review about certain services they use or products they consume. All in all, the possibilities of blog topics are endless and you will find interested readers for all blog contents.

How to Make Money Blogging


If you have the intention to make money through your blog, you need to get AdSense enabled. Adsense is part of Google and it shows ads that are relevant to your readers according to their web surfing patterns and the content of your site. This way, your readers will take a moment to notice if the ad is of interest and then clicks on them. The click will earn you the money.

Depending on the advertiser, the amount you will earn varies. Therefore, picking a niche topic to blog about is paramount if you want to earn good payouts. There is no hard and fast rule as which topic or niche will earn the best payout. Instead, you will have to find out via trial and error. This is why you need to have more than one blog.

Create More than One Blog

Not everybody is interested in everything you say. While some readers may be interested in how you spent your weekend, some reader may only be interested on your work experiences etc. Therefore, you will want to keep the topics separate on different blogs. You can always include links of all your blogs on every blog you own.

This way, those who are interested in your other blogs can click on the link and be entertained. The main benefit of this is that you do not bore your readers. Also, you get to show different ads that matters to the readers on your blog enhancing the chances of click through rates to help you earn from AdSense.

Affiliate Links

Showing affiliate links on your blogs is another way you can make money from blogging. You need to signup with affiliate networks such as Commission Junction and ClickBank and source for products that you can advertise or write review about on your blogs. This means that your affiliate product choice should be tied to the topic of your blog or something that is closely related.

Guest Blogging

Link Building is a very important thing if you want to get quality traffic to your website. You may think about buying links but the downside of it is that you have to pay for the service and the quality will not be good. You do not want dead links. You want quality links. Guest Blogging is what will give you one of the best quality links on the web.

Blogging Platforms

I have tried these three platforms and here is my view on them.


Blogger Platform is for the beginners. It is a great way of starting out and finding the feel of blogging. The service is free and I, personally love this!


Wordpress is clean and tidy and helps to keep the spam out of your blog. The downside of wordpress is that it is ad unfriendly. Any kind of ad is prohibited. As such, you will not be able to show any AdSense, AdBrite or Affiliate Links on WordPress blogs. If you want to make money from your blog, it is best to avoid this.


TypePad is very asy to use just like Blogger. However, TypePad is not free.


Too Much Ads

You need to have ads on your blog to make money. However, have too much and they become eye sore. If you have any quality traffic, you will lose them, thanks to your ridiculous amount of ads. Show only relevant ads and at prominent positions. You need not stuff ads into your every post.

Content Quality

Never compromise on your quality. Unlike Freelance Writing, your content need not be 400 words or more. However, your post must be meaningful and free from grammatical errors.

Never get Tired of Promoting
Promotion of your blog and its content should be given its due attention. How is anyone to know your blog exists if you do not put the word out! Therefore, sign up with social networking sites and start promoting your blog posts. You can use SocialOomph as a tool for bulk updates so that you need do the updating physically every time.

Never Forget to Interlink Your Posts
Linking your posts is very important. This is called internal link building. interconnecting your posts that are relevant helps your readers identify relevant posts so that they can click and get more information. You can also use LinkWithin tool for this purpose. LinkWithin is a service that allows you to place a link on your blog and this will automatically bring up previous posts that are relevant to the current blog posts at the end of the blog post.


Blogging is a fun way to earn money if you have the passion for sharing knowledge or insights or just your daily life. Promotion is key and building quality links should be given priority. Without these, no matter how much ads you have on your site you will not earn anything. Be sincere in sharing and you will see the money.
