How do you make money blogging? Blogs can be found all over the internet. Many may wonder how they can make money writing a blog. It is something they are doing anyway so they might as well get paid. Blogs with Google Adsense advertising can bring in a nice income.
It need not cost to start a blog. Blogger.com is Google's own free tool for creating a blog. Some sites do charge a small fee to start a blog, but there are many other free options as well. This free option is particularly a good option for beginners. If you decide to use the free sites be sure to read the fine print. Some rules on free sites include being restricted about what your blogs can feature. You also might be required to have a least one photo or no photo per blog.
It is suggested to get a following first before considering making money blogging though. It really depends on how the website is set up. It is typical that the blogger earns when someone visits the blog or clicks on it. The person doesn’t have to read it they just have to travel to it and earnings will be recorded. Usually the earnings are minimal for each visit and that’s why you want your readership to grow.
You can keep people coming back if you have an interesting and well written blog. It is also a good idea to frequently update your blog. It is mostly because people won’t frequent the blog if it is rarely updated. Then you lose earnings because they stop coming back.
Many people who are bloggers are finding that they do better with their own domain. It is personalized with your name and you also have more freedom in your writing. It does cost to create a website domain, but it often pays for itself and you still make money blogging.
When it comes to actually writing your blog you should write on a particular subject. It could be a broad subject to give you plenty of writing options. You need to be interested in the subject because it will come across in your writing. Don’t write too much in each blog. A good word count is 400. You won’t be restricting yourself and you won’t be overwhelming the reader. As you grow your readership your earnings will also increase.
