How to start a blog
« on: April 13, 2019, 05:30:02 AM »
My daughter keeps telling me that I could easily make money through blogging but I am not really sure there will be enough time to spare each week to write a few articles. From what I know, the best way to go about this is by creating a website, rather than a free blog through Wordpress or Blogger. What are your thoughts?

You know, I've heard this a lot, but I can't figure out how people make money through blogs. I've Googled it a few times, but it's still unclear to me. If anyone can shed light on exactly how people earn money through blogging I would be eternally grateful!  :cutecheerleader:

You can make money by placing ads on your site. It is not always easy so you have to get it right from the first time. The CPC/PPC(cost per click/pay per click) ads are usually banners placed in your content and you are paid each time a reader clicks on the ad. The CPM (cost per 1,000 impressions) ads are those that pay a fixed amount based on how many people view an ad.

Advertisers as well tend to approach a website owner with enough traffic, asking if they can place an ad on their site. It also doesn't hurt to approach advertisers yourself. This is just one way in which a blog can earn you money because there are countless ways of doing so!

Thanks for explaining it. I guess what I really don't understand is, how do you rely on people clicking the ads? It's a possibility, but not guaranteed, right? Also, would you need to have a very high amount of traffic to make decent money from ad clicks?

I think putting a blog on a website makes it look more professional, but I do know people who get approached and paid by companies to do sponsored posts for them on their free blog sites.

You do need a significant amount of traffic for companies to approach you for sponsored posts, but once you achieve that amount of traffic, you can definitely make a decent little profit from your blog.

If you're worried about the time it requires - make sure you choose to write about something that interests you and already has a place in your life. It will be easier to write about something you're familiar with and used to, and if you have a passion for it you'll make some time for the posts each week because you'll be looking forward to writing about it. :)

I completely agree with you Vanessa. It is much easier to write about a topic that you have prior knowledge about or that requires minimal research. I also think that if you have passion you can go to great lengths to research about a certain topic.

I ask my son how to earn money from the internet, specifically blogging. Cherie has the same idea as my son's explanation. He told me that blogging is like writing a diary and getting paid for it. Sounds too good to be true, but it is true as there are lots of bloggers now who earn their income by writing their interests.

I have a personal blog which I only use for writing my feelings and I only share it with my friends. I know you can make money from  a blog if you understand how to make your blog easier to be found/searched. There's a technique called SEO (search engine optimization). It is required for every blog that makes money.
