Work at Home – Blogging for Extra Cash
Have you been thinking about starting a blog? …. Or, maybe you already have a blog on a free site and are looking to take it the next level. If so, then read on.
If you are serious about blogging as a business, then there are some steps you need to take to make that happen.
The First Step:
You need to have a self-hosted blog. This means that you need a domain name and hosting. I started my blogging life with a free blog on Blogger… About a year ago I switched over to a self-hosted blog. I am currently using Bluehost with a self-hosted WordPress blog. It is so easy to set and I absolutely recommend going with this provider. You can purchase your domain name and the hosting all in one package and the rates are extremely affordable.

There are several different ways that your blog can make money for you. I will get into greater detail about the different ways to make money in future posts. For now, here are a basic listing of ways your blog can make money for you:
You can join an ad network such as Google Adsense or BlogHer.
Selling Ad Space:
If you have a popular blog, companies may wish to purchase ad space on you site.
Join an affiliate network and earn commissions from selling other people’s products.
Selling Your Own Products:
You can use your blog to advertise your own products. Sell them directly from your blog or link to your online shop.
Companies may reach out and offer to pay you to write a post about their product.
