When I first created this site, I had the intention of someday blogging for a living. What better way to make money than by working for yourself, writing, and sharing your knowledge with the world?
This site has come a long ways since it started and the last few months have been a huge turn for the better. I have completely redone the site and made the site much more usable. I am very close to getting rid of my day job and blogging as a source of income along with acting.
So, how do you make money by blogging? Here are few examples that I have incorporated into my blogs.
Google adsense basically allows you to put text and image ads on your blog. Google then pays you a certain amount every time a user clicks on an ad on your site. The real key to making a lot of money through Adsense is by generating lots of traffic and page impressions.
Selling affiliates is another great way to make income from your blog. All you need to do is promote other peoples products and then you get paid a percentage of each sale. Clickbank.com is one example of a place to find products to promote. There are tons of products in an array of topics to choose from.
Amazon Affiliate Program:
Amazon has an affiliate program that allows you to make a commission on sales you generate from your blog. You can do things like product reviews and then insert a link to the product with your affiliate ID in it. If a reader purchases the product, you make money.
There are many other ways to create income from your blog besides what I have listed here. I just feel these are the easiest to start with because it does not take much to incorporate all of them.
