Everyone has an interest, hobby or passion that they would gladly spend the majority of their time doing, thinking or talking about so why not earn some extra cash doing what you love! Millions of people around the world write blogs on what they’re passionate about; be it cooking, sports, travel, fashion, whatever they’re in to! What a lot of people don’t realise is that a lot of them are making a good income on the side by just writing about what they enjoy doing and sharing it with the world!
How Do I Make Money From Writing A Blog?
So you might be wondering how exactly are people making money from their blogs? Well a lot of the time when they make a recommendation about a product they like or interesting website they’ve found they will get a commission for just sharing it or if someone goes ahead and buys the product. For example if you have a blog about cooking and you use a specific food processor that you think is really good and you recommend it on your blog, if someone buys the food processor through the link to a website you’ve provided then you can get a commission from it, usually around 10% of the actual sales value! So a decent food processor costs around $100 on average so you could make $10 just by sharing your knowledge! You can also get a small commission when people click on links, ads or banners that you have placed on your site and even though you may only get a few cents per click this all adds up and there are bloggers out there making hundreds of dollars a day or even more!
Throughout this website I will be showing you how to make money from your blog, attract readers and turn your blog into a full time income that you actually enjoy doing! Just check out the “Monetise Your Blog” category on the right-hand side of this page 🙂
