Is Blogging for you?

If you are serious about making money online, you first need to set your mind to do what it takes to achieve a goal, and your initial goal should be, what? money? no… give value!  blogging is not really meant to make money, but it was actually there to give value to who ever reads it. If there is no value to what your blog contains, who will ever read it?  and if no one wants to read it? How will you monetize it? Got the idea?

Most successful blogs are actually those that give value to their readers, and their readers kept coming back because they learn and get something, that’s value.

“Blogging is not for everyone!”

I can almost often agree when I hear these, but what i think is, “if you can read, then you can write”. Even someone who can’t barely move their hands can write! why can’t you? Have you seen the Filipino girl who was able to fly a plane by her feet? What i mean is, nothing is impossible if you set your mind to it.

And don’t forget, practice makes perfect!

But before you even consider generating income from blogging, you would have to ask yourself first,

  • Is blogging for me?
  • Will I enjoy it?
  • Can I actually write?

Okay so much for the intro, so how do you actually earn from blogging? Well first and foremost, you need to have your own blog, weather it be a free blog or a hosted blog.

Choose your blogging platform

There are couple of times  hear the questions “which blogging platform should I pick?”, Let’s start by defining what the options are:

  1. Hosted blog – these are those that allows you to publish your blog without spending a dime! There are actually tons of these and the two most popular free blog platform out there is blogger and wordpress. But I don’t really recommend using them. If you are serious about making money online, this is not a way to go.
  2. WordPress- WordPress has lots of features and there are a lot of free extensions you can use along with it, and you can download it FREE.
  3. WordPress.org hosted version, to clarify things, there is a wordpress hosted version where you can register and start blogging for free like that of blogger.

I know a lot of people who blog on blogger, and guess what? most of them rank low on the engines… If you are serious about making money online, then get a domain, a good hosting, and install wordpress (the downloadable version), you will enjoy the long term benefits. There are quite a lot of tutorials out there on how to install a wordpress blog, and it’s seriously easy.

Get your own domain

Yes, isn’t it nice to always start things the right way? having a domain can allow you to easily move from one host to another, without losing your traffic, and without needing to ask your readers that you moved to another url because you changed from blogger to wordpress.org or vice versa.

If you are looking for a reliable web host you might want to try host gator. Host gator has a wordpress 1-click install allowing you to install your blog fast and easy.

Start Blogging!

Yes, you first need to start blogging your ass off before you can even think of making money online. When you start to blog, Pick a niche or topic that you think you will enjoy writing about and is within your level of interest. Your success depends on the value, you can give to your readers. So it must be something you are familiar with, or something you are willing to spend time learning. It’s easy to stay motivated if you’re working on something you love.

Okay, that was quite a long intro, haven’t noticed it was that long already, I’ve written a review of a couple of advertising programs before so you might also want to check that out.

When Can I start Earning?

You can actually start earning from your blog on the first day! Yes, that’s possible. That depends on how good you are at writing. If you can create a very interesting post, and can make a lot of people read that post. Then you can start making money on that very day.

Normally the fastest way to earn money online is thru affiliate marketing, affiliate marketing allows you to sell someone else’s product and earn profit for every sale. clickbank is one of the most popular source for this purpose

Once your blog have a couple of weeks old and already got couple of good posts, you can apply to google adsense.

I’ll discuss ways to earn money from blogging in a different blog later on.

Have a blessed day and happy blogging!
