How To Start A Blog
Many of you are coming here looking for at home jobs and this is the place to be. However, there are also other things you can do to make money from home while you are going through your job search and all the waiting. One thing you can do to start making some extra money is to blog.
So, what is a blog you ask?
A blog is an online diary of sorts or simply put, another website platform that is updated very often. Blogging is free and very easy to do. Here are six super simple steps to get you started with blogging and you can be on your way to making extra money very soon.
2. Decide on a topic you want to blog about. It can be anything from your personal life to a topic that you are passionate about such as fish aquariums, horses, or fitness. The more passionate and knowledgeable you are on your topic the more likely you are to gain a bigger readership as well as make more money. The idea is to stick to a narrow topic rather than blogging about everything.
3. Go to your blog right now and write an entry then publish it. Your free blog account can show you how. It’s very easy.
4. Join some blog directories, blog exchanges, plus go and leave comments on other people’s blogs that you are interested in. This will get some traffic coming to your site instantly. And, traffic (readers) is one big thing that you need to make extra money from blogging. (This post was written before Twitter and other social media really got going so now I also suggest you join Twitter, create a facebook page, join tumblr, and other social media sites).
5. Post often and try to post once every other day. Many professional bloggers post atleast once per day or sometimes more.
6.) Monetize your blog with Google Adsense ( you can sign up with Adsense over in the left sidebar. I highly recommend Google Adsense), affiliate programs, Blogads, Chitika, Amazon associates, Payperpost, or your very own advertising space where you set the price. The possibilities are endless.
