Blog Every Day

Hello again everyone. I have committed one of the cardinal sins of blogging with Bloguistics – ignoring it! I have to admit that I got distracted with my other blogs and with a two week trip to China, but that’s not an excuse. To be successful with blogging, you need to blog regularly. Optimally you should blog every day, but if that is too much for you, try to blog at least 3 to 4 times per week, even if it is just for a short update.

How do I Make Money from My Blog?: Pt 1

In order to really make any money from your blog, you first need to build up traffic (which I will cover in later posts), but so many people are anxious to learn about the money-making aspect right away, so I will at least start in on that subject.

The most common way bloggers earn money is through Google Adsense. Adsense is good and can give you a nice steady stream of earnings once you have a substantial readership, but it is by no means a “get rich quick” way to earn. Through Adsense you place ads on your blog, usually in the side bar, between posts, or at the top of your page. Every time a reader clicks on one of your ads you get paid (PPC). It’s usually a few cents, but it all depends on the particular ad and it can be as much as a dollar for a click. You also earn a very minimal amount for page views.

I personally find a much better way to earn from blogging is through smaller companies that link you with a variety of advertisers to promote their products with ads on your blog. Some offer Pay to Click programs and others pay for sign-ups or sales. One of my favorites is Logical Media. They have some high-paying programs and continually have new additions.

What Should I Blog About?

The first thing to consider when starting a blog is your topic. Many people start blogging because they have a specific topic in mind and want to write about it and share their knowledge. Others start a new blog just because they want to try blogging, either as a hobby or as an income source.

The most important thing is to choose a topic that really interests you. Ideally you will be posting on this topic every day (or at least a few times a week), so it has to be something that won’t quickly bore you! Do you have a favorite hobby? Are you part of a professional group or trade? Are you a parent with tips and ideas to share? Any of these make great sources for topic choice.

In the event you can’t decide on a topic right away, you can start a general or “anything goes” blog. Once you start and get the hang of writing and managing your blog, you can then narrow down your focus and choose a final topic or start a new blog with that topic.
