Can blogging make you money

Can blogging make you money

Blogging is an incredibly popular way to make money. It's also one that has a stigma of being easy and cheap—but it doesn't have to be! 

If you've got a unique voice, can write well and understand how advertising works, then there are many ways for you to turn your passion for writing into something more substantial than just sharing your thoughts with other people online.

Blogging can be a hobby that allows you to write about things you're interested in

Blogging is a great way to meet new people, make money and build your brand. There are many ways you can make money from blogging:

  • Advertising revenue through Google Adsense or other ad networks
  • Affiliate links (when someone buys something after clicking on an affiliate link)
  • Freelance work, such as writing articles for other sites or creating graphics

You can sell advertising on your blog

As a blogger, you can sell advertising on your blog. You’ll have to find advertisers who are willing to pay for it and then figure out how much they’ll pay per click.

You can also include banner ads in the sidebar of your site or in posts if you want more exposure for the products that you sell. 

These are generally easier than Facebook promoted posts because there aren't many advertisers on Facebook.

But it might be better for beginners since it doesn't require as much work from them when compared with other methods such as Google AdSense or Amazon Associates (which requires additional smarts).

You can promote products as an affiliate

If you're interested in promoting products that you use and like, then blogging can be a great way to make money. 

You can promote any number of things: food items, clothing lines, beauty products and more. The key here is to find what works for your audience. 

If they're looking for food related content (like recipes), then it makes sense to write those types of posts. 

But if they're looking for more general lifestyle advice or fashion tips—things like "how-to" guides—then this may not be the best option for them.

If there's one thing we've learned from our experience working with thousands of bloggers over the years it's that everyone has an opinion about what works best when it comes time to promote their own brand online! 

So before jumping into anything too quickly though we recommend asking ourselves these questions first: 

Who am I trying this out with? What do they want out of my blog? Is there something else I could use instead (for example another type of link)?

You can join a site like Upwork to find people who want you to do freelance work

You can join a site like Upwork to find people who want to hire you to do freelance work. You sign up as a freelancer, or you can be hired as an employee.

When starting out on Upwork, it’s important to showcase your skills and interests so that potential clients know what they are getting in terms of experience and expertise. 

You should also include links back to your blog where people can learn more about how much experience and expertise you actually have (as opposed to just listing all the projects that seem interesting).

If you have a unique voice and the right approach, blogging can make you money!

  • You have to be consistent in your blog, blog about topics that people care about and can trust you.
  • You need to have a unique voice on the internet.
  • You need to have an understanding of your audience and how they interact with the internet.
  • You also need an understanding of how the internet works so that when someone comes across your blog they will find value in it (and hopefully click on some links).

Finally, you must be able to sell yourself as an expert in whatever niche topic it is that you're blogging about—so if all else fails at first try advertising!


There are a lot of ways to make money blogging, and we’ve only pointed out just a few. But the key is that you have to start somewhere, and there’s no reason not to give it a try!
